4FastPlumber made a recent announcement regarding drain maintenance. In the announcement - which the company described as a public service announcement intended to help homeowners in their efforts to keep their drains clear - the company provided some helpful tips on drain maintenance. According to the company, clogged drains are one of the issues that its service technicians deal with more than just about any other, but the company stated that if homeowners follow a few simple tips, they will be far less likely to have clogged drains, saving themselves some time and money.

4FastPlumber announced that one tip which all homeowners should follow is to be mindful of what goes down their drains. Things like coffee grounds and grease should never go down a kitchen drain. Similarly, things like tampons, face or body wipes, paper towels, and cat litter should never be flushed down a toilet, as these items can cause a toilet to clog. 4FastPlumber also stated that sinks, bathtubs, and other surfaces near drains should not be cleaned with bleach, as bleach can cause clogs.

4FastPlumber also announced some things that can be done to improve drainage. The company stated that placing a screen guard or drain net over the drains can reduce the accumulation of materials (such as hair) that lead to clogs. The company also stated that consistently cleaning out drains will also reduce the risk of clogs. 4FastPlumber also announced that periodically grinding ice cubes in a sink's garbage disposal will help keep the blades sharp (without damaging them) and thus will help prevent sink clogs. The company also stated that, similarly, pouring boiling water down a shower drain will help clear it of hair and debris.

The company concluded the announcement by stating that 4FastPlumber’s Arlington location has been serving residents of Arlington and the surrounding area for over twenty years. Further information can be found at or by using URL . Their latest posts are at
