What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the slow build-up of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn 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 clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep within a drainpipe 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 main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Jefferson
A sewer line blockage 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 fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can harm or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small bit 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 small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that are located deeper in the drain system is more difficult. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
