Drains are supposed to take water and waste away from us. Typically, they do exactly this for years until, suddenly, they stop working! If you have slow drains or ones that have completely clogged, VP's Plumbing, Heating & Air is ready to help you get them working like new once again. Our local drain cleaning experts have various solutions to make sure your drains are cleared and that your problem is handled as quickly and effectively as possible!
It’s a drain’s job to handle a lot of abuse. Besides water and waste, drains are often tasked with handling debris such as food, hair, oils, and other things that can put a strain on their effectiveness. For years, a drain may handle what we throw at it. However, it might clog and require cleaning to work as it used to.
The following can cause clogged drains:
- Pieces of garbage
- Using too much toilet paper at once
- Flushable wipes (that aren’t actually flushable!)
- Sanitary pads and tampons
- Food debris
- Root overgrowth
- Shifting earth
- Hygienic products
While some dirty drains can be inconvenient and slow, others can present a significant threat to your home. Clogged drains have the potential to back up into homes, cause terrible smells, and trigger potentially expensive—and sometimes unseen—water damage.
Signs you need a drain cleaning include:
- Slow drains
- Sewer odors
- Rising water bills
- Lush green patches around your yard
How Are Drains Cleaned?
A drain can be cleaned with a simple cleaning product that breaks down clogs caused by organic materials. Other times, a plunger can do the trick. However, these are often temporary fixes to a much deeper and more significant problem.
Drain cleaning solutions of the past meant digging up drain pipes to clean, repair, or replace them. Thankfully, modern tools such as snakes—also known as plumbing augers or rooters—and hydrojetters can clear a drain without need to ruin yards and excavate pipes.
