Homeowners may not realize the potential problems that a slow drain can cause them. A plumber can inspect your drains and use a professional drain cleaner when your household drain cleaner isn’t working.
Risks of a Slow Drain
A slow drain can escalate into a much bigger problem if it goes unchecked. A drain clog can continue to build up over time without the aid of a professional drain cleaner. A clogged drain can happen when the pipes are narrowed due to grease or mineral build up. A clogged drain can even happen because of incorrect grading of your drainage system and when not addressed start to emit strange odors. A plumber can use a commercial drain cleaner on a clogged drain, which eliminates any big or small blockages.
Kitchen drains can become clogged due to soap, fat, detergents and grease build up within the pipes. Drain cleaners don’t always work on this type of clog, and this requires a commercial drain cleaner to be used. No one wants to have a backed up kitchen sink drain when they are washing dishes or cleaning food. Contact a plumber to get the best results with plumbing services.
A drain clog can occur in showers, bathtubs, and bathroom sinks often. Soap, hair, toothpaste and other grime are known culprits of drain clogs in the bathroom. Toilets are also susceptible to draining slowly from a drain clog in the plumbing line. Recurring clogs happen more frequently in the bathroom. If regular drain cleaner isn’t working, a professional drain cleaner might be necessary to eliminate some types of build up.
Homes with downspout drains can become clogged from leaves, twigs and other debris. These things can clog the drains and pipes that lead to the sewer system for your home.
