Pet Owners: Ways to Keep Your Drains Free-Flowing

As a pet owner, you know that sharing your home with furry friends comes with countless joys. However, one aspect that often gets overlooked is their impact on your drains. Pet hair, dander, and other debris can easily find their way into your drains, leading to clogs and costly repairs. But fear not—A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, your one-stop shop for drain cleaning services, shares ways to keep your drains free-flowing:

Buy a Drain Strainer

Bathing your pet will cause them to shed immense amounts of fur. Using a drain strainer ensures fur, hair, and other debris do not get washed down the drains. Clean the strainer regularly by removing any trapped material, rinsing it, and placing it back over the drain.

Clean Your Drains Regularly

Even with your best efforts, pet hair and dander can still find their way down the drains, causing clogs over time. Regular drain cleaning in Carlsbad, CA, can go a long way in keeping your pipes flowing smoothly.

Do Not Flush Animal Litter

Your cat’s litter may be “flushable,” but you still shouldn’t dispose of it down the toilet. That is because it can clump together and cause severe pipe blockages. Instead, throw it in the trash.

Maintaining clear and clog-free drains as a pet owner requires a proactive approach. If you need help taking care of your drains, look no further than A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. We specialize in drain snaking, hydro jetting, and descaling.
