Signs That You Might Need Your Drains Cleaned
Drain cleaning is one of those home maintenance tasks that many people put off for as long as possible. If left untreated, a clogged drain can cause extensive damage to your plumbing system.
There are several signs that you might need drain cleaning, including:
- Water backups: If water starts to back up out of your sink, shower, or tub when you turn on the faucet, this is a sure sign that you have a clog somewhere in your drain.
- Slow drains: If the water doesn't drain as quickly as it used to, this could be an indication of a clog.
- Bad smells: If you notice an unpleasant smell coming from your drains, it could be a sign of rotting food or other debris that has become trapped in the pipes.
- Strange noises: Strange noises coming from your drains can mean a build-up of hair or grease in the pipe, a foreign object like a toy or jewelry stuck in the drain, or tree roots growing into the sewer line.
If you notice any of these signs, it's best to call a plumber so they can clear the blockage before it becomes a bigger problem.
Common Causes of a Clogged Drain
The reality is that no matter how kind you are to your plumbing system, wear and tear is going to happen. Understanding the top causes of clogs and blockages is a huge part of preventing them from occurring in the first place. Some of the most common culprits we're called in to clear out of pipes include:
- Animal Bones
- Produce Stickers
- Coffee Grounds
- “Flushable” Wipes
- Baby Wipes
- Cotton Balls
- Paper Towels
- Kitty Litter
- Feminine Products
Even if you have a garbage disposal or are using products marked "flushable", it's always safest to avoid putting anything down the drain you don't absolutely have to. This will help with your drain's long-term health and keep them clear for as long as possible.
Locating & Removing the Clog
We use the most effective methods and high-tech equipment to locate and solve clogs in drains and sewer lines. Finding the exact source and type of clog that is affecting your property is the first step in the process. We use video camera inspection equipment to find any clog in any drain or sewer pipe. This provides the information we need to clear the clog.
The type of clog and location of the blockage helps us determine the best method for solving it. We use hydro jetting equipment to break up blockages and clear clogs in sink drains, bathtubs, and sewer lines. This innovative technology is extremely effective for completely blasting away clogs without damaging your pipes.
Tips to Prevent Your Drains from Clogging
The best way to deal with a clogged drain is to prevent it from clogging in the first place. While it's not possible to stop blockages from occurring eventually, by following these simple steps you can limit the debris that finds its way into your pipes and keep your drains clear for longer.
Some of the best ways to prevent clogs include:
- Using a screen in tubs and showers to prevent hair clogs
- Keeping coffee grounds, grease, and oil out of the kitchen sink
- Not overloading the garbage disposal
- Avoiding flushing anything other than toilet paper – including products marked "flushable
Expert Service for All Types of Drains
Drains in homes and commercial buildings are under constant use and relied on to remove wastewater. As debris builds up inside the drain over time, it can cause the water to drain slower until it eventually becomes completely blocked. Dealing with slow drains right away is important to prevent complete blockages or overflowing drains.
We are equipped to clear any residential or commercial drain, including:
- Kitchen sinks
- Bathroom sinks
- Tubs and showers
- Utility sinks
- Sewer lines
- Sewer traps
- Parking lot drains
- Water line drains
While the occasional minor clog can be easily handled with a plunger, bigger drain issues should be left to a professional. Avoid do-it-yourself drain cleaners and their toxic and corrosive chemicals, as they don’t really work to eliminate the clog and can weaken your pipes. We have decades of experience using safe and effective methods for drain cleaning in Dayton.
