Unclogging Drains Since 1979
When small plumbing issues occur, it can be tempting to go the DIY route and nowhere is this do-it-yourself spirit more evident than when you experience a clogged drain. When you search for clogged drain solutions online you are flooded with DIY results that range from harsh chemical solutions to home remedies. Unfortunately, these tips rarely reveal the aftermath of these do-it-yourself attempts. Not only is it a rarity that these attempts are effective, but some of them can do more harm to your plumbing system than good.
Instead of risking more damage to your plumbing, reach out to Wilbur's Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing. Our team has seen it all in our last 40+ years of business—and our experienced plumbers are certified and licensed drain professionals. No clog is too big or small for our team of skilled drainage specialists.
How to Avoid Clogged Drains
Buildup in your drains is a natural—be it annoying—part of your plumbing system’s life cycle. However, there are ways to reduce the frequency and severity of clogged drains.
Four ways to prevent clogged drains:
- Install strainers over your drains: While small debris is always going to end up down your drain, having strainers sit over your drains can prevent larger objects like hair and olive pits from finding their way into your plumbing system.
- Use your garbage disposal wisely: It can be tempting to use your garbage disposal for all types of small food processing, but items like coffee grounds, pasta, celery, chicken bones, and oil can drastically impact the flow of water through your drains.
- Create a maintenance plan: Preventing repair services by scheduling a maintenance service might seem counter-intuitive, but having a professional routinely look at your plumbing system is a great way to catch small problems like leaks early, saving you money on repairs down the line.
- Use a quality cleaner: The only drain treatment we recommend is not a chemical one, but an environmentally-friendly drain maintenance product to keep your drains clean. Ask our technicians for details.

Over time, particulates can build up inside your pipes. These particulates can be foreign objects like hair, coffee grounds, and grease, or the product of natural wear and tear, like debris and mineral buildup. This buildup does not just cause a slowdown in your system, but can also open up your home or business to bacteria and pests.
