Few situations are really as stressful as a sudden leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is typically a result of the gradual accumulation of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally block the outflow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Allendale
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health conditions particularly in the aged, kids and those who struggle with chronic respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
