What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is generally caused by the slow accumulation of organic matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a tough or constant blockage will call for 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 thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately 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 foreign obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Maywood
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object 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 unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or clog your home’s drain system. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary 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 clogs that are located deeper in the drain line is a lot more difficult. These types of obstructions will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health problems especially in the aged, kids and people who struggle with persistent breathing issues.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
