Why does my drain get clogged?
Usually drains are clogged because people are not careful of what they put in them, especially in the kitchen. Other drains, like in the bathroom, get clogged because of the oil residue from soaps, shampoos and hair. It is recommended that you are conscious of what you put down your drains and treat them regularly with a drain cleaner such as Bio-Clean.
I have a jammed garbage disposal - what do I do?
To reset a garbage disposal if it is humming, push the red reset button on the disposal, located on the bottom underneath the unit, or use an allen wrench in center of disposal to unjam if no reset button is present. Unplug the unit first before using allen wrench. Plug it back in and check it out.
Next, check to make sure the power is on. If the power is on and the unit is still non operational call.
Can chemical drain cleaners take care of a clog?
Homeowners often turn to chemical drain cleaners that are available at retailers to take care of clogs. One disadvantage to using chemical cleaners instead of contacting a plumber is the fact that these cleaners pose a danger to children and pets because of the toxicity of the chemicals present. Chemicals can also erode pipes and cause damage that will need to be repaired by a professional plumber in the future.
