A family of clog-causing culprits commonly known as FOG is often to blame for sewer and drain backups in your home. FOG refers to fats, oils, and grease, a bad group of substances that build up in your drains and sewer lines when they are rinsed or poured down the sink. FOG is often tough and relentless and requires expert drain cleaning to clear it away.

Fats, oils, and grease are not as innocent as they may appear. Many people think that they will easily wash down the sink in their liquid form, but in actuality, FOG separates from water and ends up sticking to pipe walls. Eventually, layers of FOG contribute to clogged drains and backed up sewers that need cleaned out fast. That’s when you call Rooter Medic for drain cleaning that attacks grime and gets rid of all the bad buildup. Less severe clogs may be alleviated through snaking while serious clogs could require more intensive cleaning. Rooter Medic has all of the solutions you need to get your pipes clean and flow-ready.

Once drains and sewer lines are cleaned out, they may need cleaned on a routine basis to keep buildup from coming back. Your plumber will also advise you not to pour any fats, oils, or grease down your sink in the future.
