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.

  • Very impressed with his professionalism and attention to great customer service.

    “Micah, the service technician/plumber, just left our home and we are very impressed with his professionalism and attention to great customer service. Our job was far from inexpensive, but he and his partner, John, had been here less than a week ago to service our tankless water heater that was 12 years old and suddenly quit giving us hot water. He had been here prior to that to diagnose the problem. To keep the story short, they spent over 2 hours here repairing the old heater and all seemed well...until the next night. Suddenly, hot water access was intermittent. This was on a Friday night, so my husband called on Saturday. Micah promptly returned his call and, after some discussion, we decided to purchase a new tankless water heater. We figured out a workaround to get by until the new one came in (2 days) and they just installed it today. While we were hoping to not have to replace the old heater, 12 years is quite a lot of time, so it wasn't a terrible shock. Even though Micah had spent quite a lot of time repairing the other one, he credited that whole invoice towards the purchase and install of our new heater, which turned what had been an unpleasant situation into a very pleasant experience. Thank you, Bob Larson Plumbing!”

  • Great service! I would definitely use them again!

    “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!”
