Household drains deal with many different liquids, and all sorts of things can clog them. The professionals at ARS®/Rescue Rooter® Chicago are professionally trained and have the tools necessary to handle whatever kind of drain-cleaning challenge that arises.
Grease, food waste, and soap constantly collect and create clogs in drains over time. If you notice that water is draining from your kitchen sink slower and slower, odds are likely that a clog is starting to build. In order to avoid any unnecessary inconvenience for you or your family, you should contact a drain cleaning expert to help you locate and clear the drain.
When you are showering, water should drain immediately from the bath. If it’s draining slowly, it’s possible your drainpipes or shower trap are clogged with hair and hair. In this case, a drain cleaning may be necessary, and you should call a professional plumber.

Bathroom Sink Drains
In the bathroom, soap, grime or toothpaste can clog the sink drain. If you accidentally drop a piece of jewelry down the drain, do not run the water. Instead, immediately call your local ARS®/Rescue Rooter® plumber; he or she should be able to retrieve the piece easily.
If your toilet is malfunctioning, the most common cause is a clog. It is important to diagnose whether the toilet itself is clogged, or if there is a more pressing problem like an obstruction in the sewer line. If the sink is draining correctly, it is likely just a toilet clog and you can use a plunger to clear it. If the sink is not draining, you need to call a professional plumber to help with the bigger issue at hand.
Another thing to remember is that toilet paper is supposed to disintegrate. Other products, such as facial tissue or baby wipes, are not. As a result, these types of products can cause toilet clogs. Another frequent cause of clogs is when children flush objects or toys. In order to best take care of your toilet and avoid clogs is to only place items meant to be flushed in the toilet.
It’s common in homes for laundry rooms, patios, driveways, basements, garages, and even older bathrooms to have a floor drain to remove water. Typically, these drains have a trap that should be filled with water; this will prevent odors and sewer gas from escaping.
With all drains, exercise caution when using supermarket drain-cleaning products as these can be damaging to your pipes.
