What happens if you don’t clear your drains.

We have all experienced a clogged drain at some point in our lives or another and most times they occur from hair in the shower or toilet paper in the toilet. No matter where your clogs have occurred or from what clogged drains can easily be avoided with just a simple step…routine drain cleaning.
