Kitchen Drain Cleaning in Tacoma, WA

With regular use, even a kitchen drain can become clogged. Food waste, grease, and soap residue create gunk, and eventually a clog! Be careful what you put down your garbage disposal, and what gets washed off your dishes. Some common food items can cause immediate drainage problems. For example, grease and coffee grounds form together to make a concrete substitute right in your pipes. Bob Larson Plumbing can get your kitchen drain free of gunk and crud in no time.

Never put the following items in your garbage disposal:

  • Non-food items
  • Bones and hard food items (such as fruit pits)
  • Grease, oil, and greasy foods
  • Coffee grounds
  • Rice or pasta
  • Hard fruit and vegetable peels
  • Stringy vegetables
  • Large pieces of citrus fruits
  • Nutshells

Resolving Drain Issues in Bathroom Sinks

Dropped jewelry, lotion caps, and child-proof lids can join hair, toothpaste, and soap residue to slow down and finally clog your bathroom sink. We can help remove these items and other wonders to unclog your bathroom sinks.

Shower & Tub Drains

Standing water in the tub is one thing, but a sewer line back up is even worse. The same items that clog up your bathroom sink work together in your tub and shower as well. Hair and soap residue is always working against you. In this case, the trap or the drain line could be the problem. Call our drain cleaning plumbers in Tacoma, WA, when you first notice a slow running drain or see standing water. We can correct the problem before it gets worse.

Toilet Drains

Clogged toilets happen frequently. Too much toilet paper, a dropped washcloth, dental retainers, q-tips, a child’s toy—we’ve seen it all. Moist wipes are becoming popular but look out! While some are biodegradable and flushable, most are not. There’s nothing more terrifying than struggling to stop a clogged toilet from overflowing. Fortunately, our drain cleaning plumbers in Tacoma can keep the line open for you as well as install new toilets and repair old ones.

Floor Drains

Basements, laundry rooms, garages, patios, driveways—these are just a few places you might find floor drains. Each drain should have a U-shaped trap leading from the drain opening. The trap is designed to hold water to prevent odors and gas from coming up through the sewers and drains. However, clogs may form in the trap or further down the drain, resulting in backups that cause a mess, and sometimes, damage.

Main Sewer Lines

Households either drain into a septic system or the main sewer lines. The sewer line is the largest pipe in your drainage system, running underground from the house to either the city sewer or the septic tank. When your main line becomes clogged with waste and debris, it stops every drain in your house. It may also damage floors, walls, or even structural supports. The drain pipe can also develop problems because of tree roots and breaks in the drainpipe itself. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have frequent earthquakes, which can cause ground shifts and pipe breakage. And of course, simple time can cause old pipes to separate.

If drains are causing you pain, remember Bob Larson Plumbing. Give us a call at (253) 780-0844 or contact us online for professional drain cleaning in Tacoma, WA.

  • We sure are glad we called Bob Larson and will be using them again should another plumbing need arise.

    “We had an old water heater that started showing signs of imminent failure. After a panicked call to the after-hours dispatcher, Robert gave us a call to inquire about our situation and scheduled a visit that afternoon. He arrived exactly when he said he would, offered us some great feedback regarding the plumbing in our home and did quality work in a timely manner. We sure are glad we called Bob Larson and will be using them again should another plumbing need arise.”

  • I'm very happy with the work that was done on a very snowy day and the cleanliness of the area when finished.

    “My Navien was definitely "sick" and I was looking for a certified Navien repair - Bob Larson's was the closest to me, and am I glad I called them! Thomas came out and made an assessment, and back a couple of days later with John. As I was in and out, Thomas explained each part of the system and I felt perfectly comfortable with the work that was done. I have a fairly complex house with multiple systems interacting and Thomas was alert to issues that could affect each and everyone from the changes made. I'm very happy with the work that was done on a very snowy day and the cleanliness of the area when finished. Definitely would recommend these guys again, and they will have my plumbing business in the future, Navien or not!”

  • The next day, in the time window they gave me, the actual Bob Larson shows up.

    “After waiting for two days on the infamous friend of a friend I needed a plumber quick. Two told me basically thanks but no thanks. I called Bob Larson and got scheduled for the next day. The next day, in the time window they gave me, the actual Bob Larson shows up. He gives me several, well-defined options and said let’s do The lowest option. He did the work and fixed my kitchen sink problem. Yes, I’d recommend Bob Larson Plumbing, competent work at fair prices.”
