Between your home's sink, tub and toilet, there is plenty of plumbing that needs to be taken care of. Whether you have a leaky faucet or your toilet isn't running properly, it is invariable that you will require plumbing services at some point. You've probably noticed that you need some bathroom plumbing tips on how to clean your drain or a clogged tub. Roto-Rooter offers many services to help you handle almost all of your plumbing woes. Here are a few tips for trying to fix these issues yourself.

Clogged tub drain

Often times, you find more than soap and water flowing through your bathroom drains. Hair and even pet fur can make its way into the pipes and can cause a serious clog. The best way to remove the block is to, of course, prevent it from happening in the first place. Always use a tub strainer to keep hair and other items out of your plumbing. You will need to regularly clean the strainer so the water can properly drain from your bathtub. In the event of a clog, remove the strainer and try applying a flat plunger to the drain. If nothing happens in a few pushes, you will need to call Roto-Rooter and we'll send an experienced professional to assess and address the situation. Our plumbers carry all the tools of the trade and will be able to get your bathtub and drains into working condition in no time.

Bathroom drain cleaning done right

When you do a weekly bathroom cleaning, you probably tackle the sink, mirror, floor and toilet. You also need to pay special attention to the bathtub. Soap scum and mildew can build up, making the chances of having a clogged drain that much higher. To lessen the risk, grab a brush and give your entire bathtub and the surrounding walls a good scrub. Use a bathroom cleaner that is easy on grout so you don't end up causing any damage. Spend a moment or two paying special attention to the drain as well. Clean out the strainer and wash the stopper. Make sure there isn't any hair making its way into your pipes, as it may cause a clog. If you need help with this, feel free to call Roto-Rooter. Our team can offer helpful advice on ways to clean your bathroom that will help keep your plumbing in top shape and avoid damage in the process.

Floor drain cleaning tips

Most homes have floor drains in their basements, laundry rooms, garages and patios to keep excess water from flooding and causing damage. Because basements are the bottom-most parts of houses, floor drains are especially common in them, since rain and sewer water naturally flow downward and flood basements. Much like drains you may find in your sink or bathtub, floor drains are equipped with traps underneath. These traps should be kept full of water to prevent sewer gases and odors from escaping into the room.


The most common issue with floor drains is that they or the traps can become clogged with dirt and debris. If you notice problems with your floor, a Roto-Rooter professional can help you clear away whatever is causing the backup. You can count on us to give you the maintenance tips and solutions you need to keep your drain clog-free!

Sump pump maintenance measures

Sump pumps are a common draining system found in basements. Their purpose is to keep groundwater from flooding the home by diverting it into nearby storm drains, wells or ponds. If your sump pump isn't functioning properly, it could cause basement flooding and damage, especially after heavy precipitation. Schedule a service with a Roto-Rooter professionals as soon as you notice your sump pump isn't working, and we'll discover the problem and find a way to repair your pump. Roto-Rooter plumbers can also install a new sump pump so call us now and get superior services.
