Drain cleaning is one of our core services. Clogged drains are more than just an inconvenience, they can lead to backups. They can even cause major damage to your home if left untreated. Clogged drains that backup within your home can cause pipes to burst. They can also cause a bigger problem – leaks. If the pressure on a clogged pipe builds up it can cause cracks to appear.
Those cracks will allow water to leak slowly into your walls, floors, and other areas. Because you don’t see the leak you may not notice the water damage until it becomes a huge and expensive problem. Your home may also start to develop mold in areas where the leaks occur. So it’s important to deal with a clogged drain in a sink, shower, tub, toilet, or laundry area as soon as you notice the signs of a clog.
The most noticeable sign of a clogged drain is the water draining more slowly than it used to. If you’re taking a shower and you notice the water rising up near your ankles that means the water isn’t draining as fast as it should be. You could have a clog.
If your dishwasher is leaving food particles behind on your dishes when it didn’t do that before the drain could be clogged causing dirty water and food particles to back up onto your dishes. This makes the dishes dirty and they have to be washed again. It also means that you could have a flood of hot dirty water across your kitchen floor if the clog isn’t cleared.
Sink clogs can cause leaks to occur under cabinets that will damage the wood and may even cause wood rot. Always take a clogged drain seriously. By the time you start to notice that the sink or toilet is clogged you could already have damage in the pipes that you can’t see.
When you start to see any of these signs in your drains, toilet, or other plumbing call us and we will send a professional technician out to assess your drains. If you contact us immediately when you notice the signs of a clogged drain our technicians may be able to save you from having major damage occur by dealing with the drain clogs right away.
If you have an older home your home may be at risk for flooding from sewer backwater. That is a situation that no one wants to deal with. Heavy rains can cause the water from your home’s sewer line to flow back into the plumbing resulting in a flood of your basement or first floor.
Sewer line floods aren’t just unpleasant. They are a major health hazard that requires hazardous material clean up. You also run the risk of developing nasty black mold from a sewer back up or flood.
Installing a backwater valve will prevent sewer line backups and floods. A backwater valve is a one way valve that won’t allow water to flow back into the plumbing. Newer homes are required to have a backwater valve to prevent sewer backups and floods but many older homes don’t have them.
