Protecting Your Pipes from Clogs
 

The drains in your home take used water, food, and other waste to the sewer line connecting your home to the local civic sewer system. These materials can cause clogs, creating back-ups and pushing contaminated water through your sinks and other outlets. When left unattended, this can even pose a considerable risk to the health and safety of your family.

Why Are Clogged Drains So Common?

Clogs are much more common in drain lines than water lines simply because we pour a great deal of material down the drains in our homes. Over time, these materials can build-up and block water from passing through your pipes.

Clogs can be caused by common materials we wash down our drains, including:​
  • Haircare products

  • Toothpaste

  • Makeup

  • Hair

  • Food scraps

  • Waste

Unfortunately, a store-bought cleaner or drain opener only rarely removes these clogs properly, adopting a one-size-fits-all approach that often leaves parts of the clog in place. Instead of wasting your time with half measures, call the professionals at Knott's Plumbing Services, LLC for proper drain and sewer cleaning services.

When To Call In A Professional Plumber

Once your drains have developed a clog, it is imperative you resolve the issue right away. Leaving a clog unattended can result in a serious obstruction in your drain and sewer lines, amongst a host of other problems. If you are experiencing any of the following issues, it is time to call in a professional plumber to perform a drain cleaning service.

Signs Of A Blocked Drain:

  • There is an unpleasant odor coming from the drains

  • You hear bubbling or gurgling sounds

  • There are multiple and repeated clogs

  • The toilet will not flush properly

  • The drains in your sink, shower or tub take a longer amount of time to drain completely

Once a clog has formed a drain cleaning will be needed. However, there are some general maintenance techniques you can put into practice to lessen the frequency with which your drains experience a blockage. For example, buying a drain grate, screen or stopper to catch any debris from going down the drain, running hot water down your bathroom sinks regularly, and just watching what you flush down the toilet or wash down the drain can help protect them.

The Challenges of Sewer Lines

As tough as drain lines can be to clean, sewer lines are even tougher. The main line between your home and the sewer line is usually buried underground, making it tough to get to. Performing a sewer drain cleaning takes professional skill and you can’t simply hope for the best the way you might when you unclog a drain elsewhere in your house.

That’s why we use hydro jetting and other advanced techniques to provide proper sewer line cleaning for your home. Just as with sink and shower drain cleaning, it’s used to great effect and does the job with no damage to your pipes.
