What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally block the flow. The result is a clogged tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog minor blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Englewood Cliffs
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that lie further in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very serious health conditions especially in the aged, kids and those who struggle with persistent breathing complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
