Laundry drain clogs can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare!
You dropped your laundry in the machine half an hour ago and you returned to your laundry room to prepare another load and there is water everywhere. This is normally caused by the Laundry drain backing up.

Money Saving Tips
In the interest of saving time, inconvenience and money, here are some thing you can do keep your laundry drain from acting up.
Use a lint screen – The number 1 cause of laundry backups is lint. Not all the lint makes it to the dryer! Using a lint screen can be a very inexpensive way to keep the lint out of your pipes, keeping it from causing a troublesome clog.
Vinegar – Pouring a mixture of hot water and vinegar down your laundry drain can really help clear out the grease and soap scum buildup, and help keep your line running clear. Do this every once in a while about an hour before doing a hot water load. The hot water will also help to de-solidify any grease or soap scum.
Keep your laundry basin clean – Even if your washing machine does not empty into your laundry basin, if you have one, they tie into the same drain line. Avoid using the basin to clean greasy items, or other things that might clog up the drain line.
Take care on your kitchen sink line – Believe it or not, on many houses, the kitchen sink and laundry lines tie together before going into the main sewer line. Follow the tips on our Kitchen Sink Stoppages page to make sure you are keeping that line flowing nice and clear.
Upgrade your standpipe – Now this is an advanced technique, and requires a qualified plumber to do, but it is worth mentioning. Many older homes have 1 1/2 inch standpipes and p-traps for their laundry. This is just too small for many modern washing machines that empty the water much faster than their predecessors. Just the smallest “hiccup” can leave the floor flooded. Upgrading to a 2” standpipe and p-trap can save you loads of future problems.
Either way, whether you have a slow laundry drain, one that is completely clogged, or are thinking about upgrading the stand pipe, you want it to be done by a true professional. You want it done by Gogo Rooter. Trust no one else!
