Common Drain Issues
Your drains take on a lot of work over the course of time, so there may be a number of reasons you need to call a plumber for drain repair. In any case, make sure you contact plumbers who have experience in a wide range of issues, so that they can repair the problem no matter what the source. These are some of the reasons our customers seek us out for professional drain repairs.
- Slow drain – When a drain in your home is moving slowly, you can try using a plunger to loosen the blockage. When this doesn’t work, our plumbers have the proper tools to remove obstructions of any size with our drain cleaning services.
- Stopped drains – If more than one of the drains in your home stop, there’s probably trouble far along in the drain or sewer line. A drain and sewer professional may have to use high–pressure jets or powerful snakes to tackle the clog.
- Leaking – Underneath the sink, the drain assembly may begin to leak when parts become loose or develop corrosion or cracks.
- Sewage odors – If you notice a sewage odor from a drain, try turning on the water for a few seconds, or clean the drain with baking soda, then vinegar. If this doesn’t work, call our professionals.
- Items dropped in the drain – Dropping something down the drain requires quick action on your part to get the item out and stop a drain clog in its tracks. Call us right away if this happens to you.
Keep These Items Out of the Drains
Many drain repairs may actually be entirely preventable. In order to prevent drain clogs, don’t use the garbage disposal as a trash can. Throw waste in the garbage, and keep hard foods out of the drain as well. Expandable foods (pasta and rice, for example) can also stop up the drains. So can fats, oils, and grease, which cool in the pipes and allow debris to collect.
