Our third-generation, family-owned company has served the plumbing and drain needs of local homeowners since 1958.
Clogs Have Many Causes
A clog can form in a single drain or in the main sewer line, which causes slow and blocked drains throughout the home. The causes can range from a gradual buildup of debris inside the house drains, objects dropped into a drain, or tree roots growing into the sewer line and clogging it.
Our plumbers frequently deal with clogs caused by:
- Food waste
- Oil or grease
- Soap buildup
- Pipe scale
- Paper towels, feminine hygiene products, cotton balls, and other unflushable objects
In most cases, you will notice the water begin to drain slower than normal. This is the time to call for professional drain cleaning. These slow drains will become slower and slower until the drain is completely blocked or the sink overflows. Standing water can be a health hazard, and allowing blockages to get too large risks damage to the drainpipe.
Safe & Effective Drain Cleaning
If you have slow draining water in a sink or tub, standing water, a toilet that won’t flush or gets repeatedly clogged, or notice gurgling noises from the toilet, it is time for drain cleaning. Do-it-yourself drain cleaning liquids have caustic chemicals that may damage pipes and aren’t effective for tough clogs. We use safe and effective methods for drain cleaning.
In our more than 60 years in business, we have cleared every type of clog in every type of drain. We use professional drain cleaning methods that efficiently eliminate clogs and won’t cause harm to your pipes. Our plumbers will determine the most effective method based on the location of the clog and what is blocking your drain.
Keeping the Drains Clear
Don’t wait until a drain gets slow or blocked to think about your drains. Treat the drains with care and watch what you put down the drain. Keep anything that could cause a clog out of your drains. Even small scraps that may seem like nothing can accumulate inside the drainpipe and cause a slow or blocked drain.
Reduce clogs by following a few simple tips:
- Use screens in tub, shower, and sink drains to catch hair and food waste
- Keep oil and grease out of the drain
- Paint, cement, and other clogging materials should never be poured down drains
- Don’t put anything but toilet paper down the toilet
- Flush your drains with hot water weekly to prevent clogs
We can provide drain cleaning as a preventative measure for drains that frequently clog. Our plumbers can provide this service once or twice a year, or according to the schedule that works best for you.
