Expert Drain Cleaning and Repair Services
In many cases, drain issues are caused by blockages, which are incredibly common. Soap scum, tree roots, excess toilet paper, clumps of hair, hard water buildup, cooking grease, and more can narrow your pipes or even fully block them. No matter what is causing the blockage, the end result is the same: water that won’t drain away.
Some common signs of clogged drains include:
- Sluggish drainage from sinks, showers, or tubs
- Frequent toilet backups
- Odor of mold or mildew from drains
- Sounds of water dripping or trickling
If you notice any of these, call for drain cleaning right away to prevent the problem from escalating, potentially leading to costly water damage. A plumber will inspect your drains and pipes with a specialized drain camera to locate any blockages in your piping. They can then clear the blockage with a hydrojet or drain snake, depending on the cause.
Once your pipes are clear, your plumber can determine whether drain repair is necessary. Small items put down drains can damage the pipes, and tree roots can even punch right through them, resulting in the need for repair. Your plumber can replace the broken pipe sections to get everything flowing once again.
It is always best to leave residential drain services to professional plumbers. Oftentimes, blockages occur much farther down the pipes than you might realize, which can make them challenging to reach on your own. If you don’t know exactly what you are doing, you also run the risk of damaging your pipes further, which can lead to more costly drain repairs.
