Homeowners often find their plumbing to be a little overwhelming. After all, there are pipes, faucets, appliances and fixtures all over your house – both inside and outside – which means there’s a lot that needs to be well-maintained and monitored. Kitchen and bathroom fixtures are so often used that many people find them a bit easier to navigate. Laundry room plumbing, on the other hand, is often slightly more difficult for people to understand. And when your washing machine is out of commission or your utility sink isn’t draining properly, that can seriously mess up your day-to-day productivity.
The great news? If you’re having an issue with the drains, machines, sink or any other plumbing-related fixtures in your laundry room, Roto-Rooter can help.
Laundry room plumbing
What do you do when your washing machine starts overflowing? Or if there’s an unpleasant smell coming from the drain in your floor? If you aren’t comfortable fixing these types of issues yourself, contact your local Roto-Rooter. Here are just a few of the top laundry room plumbing services we provide:
- Washing machine repair and installation: If your washing machine isn’t working properly, it can really limit how much you’re able to get done around your home. A Roto-Rooter plumber can determine what’s wrong with the machine or install a new one of any brand if you’re ready for a replacement.
- Unblocking drain lines: Flooding is one of the most common plumbing-related issues when it comes to washing machines – typically it means the drain lines are clogged with lint, buildup or another type of debris. Roto-Rooter plumbers are experts in clearing drain lines and returning washing machines to their original conditions.
- Clearing and cleaning floor drains: Many laundry rooms are fitted with floor drains, which can limit damage in case of flooding. These drains should be regularly cleaned to ensure they stay clear and unblocked. Roto-Rooter can professionally clean the floor drains in your home or unblock them in the case of a clog.
- Utility sink and faucet repair and installation: You use the sink in your laundry room for any number of heavy-duty tasks, from cleaning paint brushes to rinsing off muddy shoes. So, if it’s clogged, leaking or in need of repair in any other way, schedule a service with Roto-Rooter as soon as you can.
Tips for maintaining your laundry room plumbing
It’s important to remember that maintaining your laundry room plumbing properly can limit the amount of repairs you’ll need. Check your hoses and drains regularly, and use Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield in your drain lines once per month. Also, use strainers to keep lint, hair and debris out of your drain lines and hose.
