No matter how well you take care of your drains, all drains will eventually clog. Drain cleaning calls are one of the most common types of plumbing calls we get called out to fix. Not only can we quickly and effectively clear your clogged drain, but we can also provide you tips and tricks for maintenance to keep your drains clog-free for as long as possible. Depending on the severity of the clog at hand, we will either snake the drain or provide hydrojetting services.

Kitchen Drain Cleaning in Tacoma

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 Bob Larson Plumbing 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 Tacoma drain cleaning plumbers 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.

Downspout Drains

Gutters on the roof are designed to carry water to the downspouts, where the water is shifted away from your house either via a drain field, a stormwater system, a curb drain, or another water system. To keep water away and avoid potential problems, gutters and downspouts should be kept open and clear.

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.

  • Business owner Bob Larson checked in with us to ensure all of our concerns had been addressed.

    “We invited Bob Larson Plumbing back to our home last week. We had two separate issues - a clogged toilet and clogged line to our laundry room. Technicians Robert and James did a wonderful job at diagnosing and fixing both issues. Business owner Bob Larson checked in with us to ensure all of our concerns had been addressed. Fair, honest and friendly. There are very few businesses I say I trust completely. Bob Larson Plumbing is one of those few. Just wish there were more businesses like BLP out there. We will call them again when the need arises.”

  • Bob and his company take pride in their work and have great customer service.

    “Our tankless water heater went out Thursday evening. We called Friday morning and they were booked til Tuesday. So Bob himself actually came and took care of us and at a fair price. We even got a 10% military discount! It is becoming rare these days to receive quality service and honest service. Bob and his company take pride in their work and have great customer service. We would highly recommend Bob Larson Plumbing!”

    “Had our hot water heater go out on a Thursday. After contacting multiple companies who either couldn't get to it until next week or had supposed emergency 24/7 services ...yet wouldn't call back, Bob Larson's Plumbing came through and replaced our hot water heater on Sunday. Great service! I would definitely use them again!”
