What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is typically caused by the gradual accumulation of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally block the flow. The result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock minor obstructions, a stubborn or persistent clog will call for a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to 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 isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree 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 require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Hackensack
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that are located further in the drain line is more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions especially in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the 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.
