What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is generally caused by the gradual accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water through 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 become caught and totally block the flow. The result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
While a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or constant blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are lodged 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 (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Teterboro
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, 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 but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or stop up your home’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that are located deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, kids and those who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
