What Causes Drain Clogs?
A clogged drain is a common plumbing problem because it can steam from many different materials. Some examples include:
- Excess hair in a shower drain
- Hardened grease in a kitchen sink
- Invasive roots in outdoor drains
- Scale buildup from hard water
- Toys, clay, or miscellaneous children’s toys
- Too much toilet paper
While trying to keep debris out of your drain is the easiest way to avoid this issue, at some point, you will have to deal with a clogged drain.
How Can Clogged Drains Affect Your Plumbing?
If left unchecked, a blocked drain can cause significant damage to your plumbing. For one, water will take longer to drain from sinks and tubs, or it won’t drain at all. Not only is this an unsightly issue, but also it can actually damage the fixtures in your home, resulting in the need for replacement.
Similarly, a blocked drain can create excess pressure in your plumbing, which can strain pipes leading to a burst pipe. What was a small issue at first, can quickly turn into a much larger plumbing emergency. At the same time, those blockages, like with grease for example, can quickly hamper your health. From contaminating your water supply, to creating foul smelling odors, a clogged drain may affect your physical health.
Another thing to consider before trying the DIY approach is that whatever clog remover you use for your drains, may only be a temporary solution. With the help of our plumbers you can actually get to the source of the problem, and remove the blockage completely.
Our Drain Cleaning Service
At Cardinal Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer quality drain cleaning services. Instead of using harsh chemicals, we use mechanical processes like snaking or water jetting, which actually get deeper into your plumbing. When you contact us for drain cleaning services we will perform an inspection before getting to work. Once the clog has been located, we will determine which process is best.
Snaking is a great way to remove clogs stemming from hair or debris, as the snake punctures a hole in the blockage that can then be pushed through. Jetting on the other hand is perfect for stronger buildups like grease or scale. After they’ve been removed from your pipes, you will notice a significant increase in the water flow in your home.
