Drains can clog over time.Sarasota plumbing contractor 5

If you think about all of the types of things we flush down our drains, it's a wonder they don't clog more often. Drains run slower as greases, hair, toothpaste, soap and other debris build up inside the pipes and eventually cause blockage.

If you have clogged drains, there are a few things you can do yourself to try and clear them.

The DIY approach is always great to try at first as you can save a lot of money. But there is a point where you have to decide when it's time to bring in a professional plumber because you could end up causing more damage that results in costly repairs down the road.

If these tips for drain cleaning fail, you may have a more serious problem. Some older homes with mature trees planted close to the house have problems with roots cracking or blocking pipes.
