How Often Should You Clean Your Drains?
Many homeowners don’t pay attention to their drains until a problem occurs. However, sooner or later, the pooling water in your sink and shower or slow flushing in your toilet can lead to a nasty backup. Don’t wait for these disasters to happen with prompt drain cleaning in Oceanside, CA.
But how often should you do this maintenance task? A.M. Plumbing & Rooter explains further:
Every Time a Drain Issue Occurs
You shouldn’t ignore the warning signs that indicate the need for drain cleaning. If the water takes longer to go down the sink or shower or clogs keep recurring no matter what you do, it’s time to enlist drain cleaning services. Gurgling sounds and foul odors from the drains also imply you have a blockage in your pipes.
Once a Week
We recommend including drain cleaning as part of your weekly routine. To do so, pour ¼ cup of baking soda, followed by ¼ cup of vinegar, and let them sit for a few minutes. Then, flush with hot water. Our drain cleaning company discourages using store-bought cleaners, as they contain harsh ingredients that can damage your pipes and put your health at risk.
Even if you don’t experience problems with your drains, it wouldn’t hurt to have your trusted plumber thoroughly clean them annually. This allows you to catch underlying issues early, so you can take steps to keep them from becoming full-blown. In turn, your drains will remain free-flowing, and you don’t have to worry about clogs and backups occurring.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
