How to Avoid Clogged Drains
Clogged drains can usually be avoided. As experienced plumbers, we know to avoid putting certain items down the drain. These items don’t dissolve correctly and can block up your system:
- TOILETS: Don’t flush napkins, paper towels, baby wipes, Q-Tips or feminine products. Stick to toilet paper only.
- SHOWER, TUB & BATHROOM SINK: Excessive hair, soap residue and toothpaste can build up and block your drains. Install mesh-screen hair catchers and clean them often.
- KITCHEN: Don’t put grease, oil, banana peels, eggshells, fibrous vegetables or coffee grinds down the drain. Instead, dispose of leftover food and cooking items in the trash (even if you have a garbage disposal). And don’t forget to run hot water while using your disposal.
Warning Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning Services
When a toilet clogs, it’s pretty obvious. The wad of toilet paper and rising water levels are clear indicators something is lodged in the pipe. But other types of clogs can be harder to identify.
Know when to call for clogged drain repair by watching for slow-draining water. You should also listen for dripping sounds in the walls or gurgling noises in your drains and toilets. Finally, take note of any stinky smells from drains and appliances.
If you notice any of these issues, call McLoughlin Plumbing Heating & Cooling right away. We’re available in Gradyville 24/7!

What Qualifies as a Water Heater Emergency?
Hot water is essential to your family’s health, safety and comfort. When you start to notice poor performance, always contact a professional right away. Leaks, inefficiency, discolored water, a lack of heating, or a noisy unit are all signs your water heater needs help fast.
Neglecting these seemingly minor problems can lead to major issues down the road. Property damage from water leaks and rusty, unsafe water are just a few of the risks. Not to mention expensive utility bills and the cost of larger repairs. Get your water heater the care it needs before the problems compound!
