Sewer Repair – Drain Cleaning
Few scenarios are really as stressful as a sudden leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What causes a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and completely block the outflow. The end result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally 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 known as a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to get to clogs 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 is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in New Vernon
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located further in the drain line is more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
