Rush Plumbing & Rooter Residential Drain Cleaning and Sewer Repair

Rush Plumbing & Rooter What Causes a Clogged Drain?

In all residential homes, there are multiple types of drains in various locations throughout the house. There are showers and tubs, kitchen sinks, garbage disposals, toilets, bathroom sinks, etc,. Typically what plumbers see as the causing factors of a drain clogging are:

  • Hair and shampoo in the shower drain
  • Toothpaste and soap in the bathroom sink drain
  • Chunks of food, grease, and fat going down the garbage disposal
  • Excess toilet paper or a child’s toy or toothbrush flushed down the toilet

This is not a comprehensive list, but these still are the most common forms of clogging when it comes to a residential space. And every single one of them could create poor performance when it comes to your drain working properly and directing the flow of water in the appropriate manner.

Residential Drain Cleaning and Sewer Repair

What can you expect from a drain cleaning?

Most of the time either a solution that breaks down material lodged in the pipes or a “snake” is used for drain unclogging and cleaning. Sometimes it is necessary to apply both these methods.

Drain Cleaning Equipment

A “snake” is made up of a long, plastic or metal rod with a removable head. The head is matched to fit the size pipe it is being inserted into. The “snake” is the most common tool for the unclogging of drains, but sometimes hydro-jetting with a kinetic water ram or a solution used for the breaking down of the material that composes the clog are employed as well.

Sewer Repair and Cleaning Services

Sewer pipes and drains are kept distinct from the rest of the water system by clearly defined piping. A clog that causes backup in this system can be extremely hazardous because of the toxic nature of the waste that goes through the pipe. Repair or replacement can be necessary if this happens, so call Rush Plumbing & Rooter immediately upon noticing a problem. Stoppages are identified by standing water in tubs or showers or if water takes an exorbitant amount of time to drain.

Giving the solution that lasts

At Rush Plumbing & Rooter we give the solution that lasts. When it comes to cleaning out a drain, you can either choose the swift and easy approach that really only punches a hole in the clog without cleaning out the pipe effectively, or you can be as meticulous as our own licensed plumbers and ensure that the pipe is not only fully cleaned, but running properly for the future. As a homeowner you should not have to require drain cleaning service every few months. If you are, then your plumbers either aren’t doing their job properly, or you may have a different issue that requires a larger scale repair. The plumbers at Rush Plumbing & Rooter aren’t daunted by the task of drain service, no matter how grimy it gets. And rather than just trying to get in and out, we make sure your problem is fixed for the long haul.
