What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, much like 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 totally block the flow. The end result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a tough or persistent clog 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 will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots in the sewer main . If our plumber discovers 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 do try very hard to provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Mahwah
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 fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It only takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that lie deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health conditions especially in the aged, children and people who suffer from chronic breathing issues.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
