Clogged drain ruining your day? Whether it’s a clogged shower or toilet in your home or a backed up sink at your place of business or any other type of drain blockage, it can make it impossible to go about your day.

The next time you have a clogged drain in Davis County or the surrounding areas, don’t reach for the chemical drain cleaners that usually don’t work. Instead, pick up the phone and call Prestige Plumbing
RESIDENTIAL DRAIN CLEANING
A clogged drain in your home can cause considerable damage and create a huge mess. From toilets to sinks, any drain in your home can become a victim to clogs. In the bathroom, toilets are most commonly clogged by foreign objects ranging from excessive paper, foreign objects, and “flushable wipes”. In the shower, hair can cause major clogs. In the kitchen, most clogs are caused by grease and food.
No matter what the cause, the result is the same – a sluggish drain that doesn’t allow water to flow through and out to the sewer without blockage, requiring drain cleaning or plumbing repair.

A clogged drain can bring your business to a grinding halt. At Prestige, we offer professional commercial drain cleaning in Davis County and across the Wasatch Front that you can rely on.

CAMERA SERVICE AND INSPECTION
At Prestige Plumbing, camera service and inspection are part of our drain cleaning process. We use a camera to inspect the inside of your pipes, that way we can verify your pipes are completely free of debris and blockages.
By performing a camera inspection, we can see things like roots growing into your lines that could cause repeated backups, even if your water is flowing freely now. Our camera also allows us to detect pipe damage early enough for us to correct minor problems before they turn into major disasters.
One of the absolute best ways to prevent slow or clogged drains is to be careful about what you put into them. Cooking grease, coffee grounds, hair, and soap scum are four of a drain’s biggest enemies. Do whatever you can to avoid introducing any of these items into a drain. Here’s how:
Save cooking grease in an old coffee can or cardboard milk container. Then dispose of it in the trash.
Throw coffee grounds away in the garbage or add them to your mulch pile.
Use a screen or drain-grate to cover the drain’s opening and minimize problems with hair and soap scum. Stop by your local plumbing-supply store to study the choices appropriate for your particular fixture. Take along a picture of the drain system to better explain your needs. Most filters and screens can be simply laid in place.
Run hot water through the sink after each use. Hot water keeps oils in food products running down the drain, rather than building up on the interior surface of pipes, which can make drains sluggish and lead to clogs.
Throw a handful of baking soda into the drain and follow it with hot water. Baking soda is a terrific cleaning agent, and it’s also great for absorbing foul odors and leaving your drain pipes smelling like a rose. Okay, maybe not like a rose, but a lot better than they otherwise would.
Pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes; then chase it down with very hot water. Vinegar is a wonder cleaner. It contains acetic acid, which acts as an excellent organic solvent in removing organic buildup of crud in pipes.
