Save Yourself Mess and Odor From Slow or Clogged Drains

Drains that don’t flow can smell terrible. Even if you can get the clog to clear, there’s the worry that it will just clog up again. There’s a science to keeping your drains clear. A skilled professional can help you address slow or clogged drains.

The Source of the Clog

Many things can lead to clogs or slow drains. Grease down the kitchen sink can line the drain pipes and eventually cause a clog. Food that gets trapped in the drain can also limit water flow. A simple filter basket in the bottom of your sink can prevent your drain from filling up with debris.

Hair can cause the same problem in your shower drain, as can products that moisturize hair and skin. Many of these products have a waxy consistency or additive that lines the drain pipe and limits water flow.

DIY Drain Cleaners Can Be Dangerous

Over-the-counter products from your hardware store are unlikely to clear these products away. Worse, they can damage rubber seals, plastic drain components, and glues that keep the drain from leaking. Before you pour something down a slow drain, call a professional.

Once a plumbing professional has cleared away a troublesome clog, they can give you tools to help you prevent the clog from recurring. If you have poured any chemicals down the drain in an effort to dissolve it, make sure you share that information as these chemicals can be quite caustic.

Confirming Safe Draining From Your Home to the Main

If your toilet is constantly backing up, it may be time to take a look at the sewer line that runs from your home to the sewer main. These pipes can be damaged by time, tree roots, and pressure.

The process for making sure that your sewer line is healthy is fairly simple. It may need to be snaked to clear away tree roots that have invaded your sewer pipe. Next, a video inspection of the inside of the sewer pipe is done to find the crack or breach. This video inspection process also means that your plumbing professional can quickly determine where the damaged pipe is and what it will take to reach it.

While a sewer line repair used to mean tearing up your entire yard, it’s possible to get your sewer line working well with a minimally invasive repair. Your plumbing professional can help you determine the next best step once the problem is diagnosed.

These experts can also help you understand why clogs occur and how to avoid them in the future. If you have slow drains in your Bastrop, TX home, call the team at Parobek Plumbing for expert drain cleaning services.
