It’s easy to take your drains for granted until a sink or toilet gets clogged. Blockages are an inconvenience that you don’t have to put up with. Premier 1 Plumbing, Inc. has certified drain and sewer specialists in Burbank that can clear your home or business of troublesome clogs without leaving a mess for you to clean up.
Common Causes of a Clogged Drain
The best way to deal with a clogged drain is to prevent it from getting clogged in the first place, and the best way to do that is to understand the most common causes of clogged drains. While this won't save you once you're dealing with a serious blockage, it can help you significantly limit the number of time you need to call a plumber to come and fix the problem for you. Some of the main culprits include:
- Fats, oil, and grease: These substances are among the most dangerous to pour down the drain. Whether its leftover from cooking or trimmings from your meal, you should never let these things go down your drain.
- Soap: A lot of people don't realize that traditional bars of soap are often made using fats. This can lead to similar buildup in your pipes as the soap residue bonds with minerals in your water, leaving behind soap scum deposits in your pipes.
- Food waste: No matter how effective your garbage disposal may be, you should never, ever pour food down the drain. Coffee grounds and tea leaves are by far the worst culprits, but any food can easily get caught in your pipes.
- Cotton and hygiene products: The only things you should ever flush down the toilet is water, human waste, and toilet paper. No matter how "flushable" a product claims to be, odds are it will get caught in your plumbing and cause a clog.
- Tree roots: Even the smallest crack in your underground pipes can lead to tree roots working their way inside and slowly growing to the point that it completely blocks your plumbing system.

The Benefits of Professional Drain Cleaning
It's a good idea to have your drains cleaned by a professional about once per year. This can help catch and prevent major clogs from forming, and it's far better for your drains to avoid over the counter or chemical drain cleaners. While some DIY solutions like baking soda and vinegar can clear out some things, it lacks the long-term effectiveness you need. Chemical cleaners are even more dangerous, and can slowly erode your pipes over time, leading to a potential catastrophe.
Reasons to call a drain and sewer specialist include:
- We employ certified professionals. Our Burbank drain cleaning technicians have decades of experience and training.
- We’ll spot things you’ll probably miss. While you might know there’s a problem, our specialists can break down and explain what the issue is and why it’s happening, as well as how we intend to fix it.
- All the success, and none of the mess! What might start as a simple DIY drain cleaning project could end as an unpleasant mess. Our professionals can handle the cleaning without leaving a lot behind to clean up.
