Your Plumber Salt lake City has fixed a lot of clogged drains! Drain cleaning is a big part of what we do.
We've cleaned so many in fact that we'd like to help you know what to expect.
All drains clog. It's almost inevitable.
I mean, have you seen those things? They have those curves, and they're not very big to begin with.
Hair, grease, debris, all sorts of things get in to the pipes and cause clogs. You should do your best to prevent that, but it's likely going to happen.
Here are some valuable tips from your dependable salt lake city plumber to help reduce drain cleaning problems:
- Floor drains are there to help any water that leaks from sinks, broken water heaters, or other flooding. They should be kept clear of debris and dirt that commonly gets pushed into them.
- Bathrooms are susceptible to hair and soap buildup slowing the water flow through drains and eventually stopping it altogether. Clean out hair and use hair traps to stop it from getting down the drain in the first place.
- Kitchen drains commonly experience buildup of grease and food waste. Garbage Disposals seem unbreakable, but the wrong things will absolutely stop it. Only put biodegradable food in the disposal, and make sure it's all cleaned out after running it.
What if it's really bad?
Not all clogged drains are created equal.
If you are dealing with a sink that won't stop getting plugged it may be as easy as using a drain snake to free up whatever objects or buildup is blocking things. Drain rooting is just part of our job.
If it's a toilet, it may take extra effort to remove the toilet and clear the main drain hidden underneath.
And sometimes it can get really messy if your main drain line is the problem. That will likely require a scope to determine what is causing the block, and then some major muscle or equipment to break it free.
For the worst case scenarios, you can trust that we will first do our best to diagnose the issue using the basic techniques before ever considering and proposing a more expensive option.
Ultimately, we won't leave your drains plugged, so we will take the time and care to identify the problem and give you all your options of how to fix it.
In the most extreme cases, it may require digging up and replacing part or all of your main drain sewage line. This is most common when large items have been sent down the drain, and when there are tree roots present.
In these cases when you need clean drains, we will be as careful and professional as possible as we get the job done and get you back to your normal life.
Your input will guide all of our actions, so you can know that there will be no surprises.
