Small Drain Clogs
Many times, a clogged drain is just that, and not a symptom of any other problems. Still, clogs often form in difficult or hard-to-access places, which makes them challenging to remove. Even if you have some plumbing background, it’s easy to get in over your head. That’s why, if the clog doesn’t come out or dissolve easily, we recommend calling a professional plumber.
Our plumbers come with industrial grade snakes on their trucks. These are devices that they stick down your drain. The end of the snake is designed to remove clogs. The plumber will thread the snake through your drain until he finds a clog. Then, he’ll use the snake to remove it or cut through it, so your water can drain again.
While you can rent snakes at most hardware stores, these are not as high of quality as they ones our plumbers use. It’s easy to get rental snakes stuck in your drains, which then means a much larger plumbing repair job! Keep your repair bills small by calling Cardinal at the first sign of a problem.
Large Drain Clogs
Sometimes, a drain clog cannot be accessed by snake. This usually means that the clog is in one of the large pipes in your home, or even in the sewer line between your home and the street. While it takes a professional plumber to determine just where your clog is and how best to remove it, here are some signs that your problem may be bigger than just one drain.
- More than one drain is clogged. Since large pipes tend to drain several rooms or even a whole level of your home, when those pipes get clogged you tend to experience problems in several places at once.
- Water comes back up your drains. Sometimes, when water cannot drain, it comes up into your sinks, tubs, and toilets instead of trying to drain out. If you experience this, you probably have a problem larger than one drain.
- Your home smells like sewage. Nasty things go down drains and, when the drain can’t flow, you will end up smelling those things in your home. If you have a persistent and pervasive sewage smell, it’s definitely time to call a plumber.
