A slow or clogged drain is frustrating for any homeowner. Clogged toilets, sinks and showers can bring our day to a halt pretty quick. And — slow drains only continue to get worse until we can’t stand it anymore. Most retail drain cleaners have a base of caustic acid in them making them dangerous to your family and harmful to your piping. We do not recommend anything except for all natural drain maintainers. Clogs are caused by everything from grease, hair, soap, and shampoo, to the dreaded tree roots underground in your yard.
Most times we can clear a clog pretty quickly with our power snakes. Like potato peels to a garbage disposal, grease down your sink is also a major “no-no.” Some people mistakenly think if they run hot water down the drain with the grease it will be fine. Unfortunately, that can create even more complications because as the water cools traveling down the pipes, so does the grease. This will build up a thick layer at the bottom of your pipes that can be very difficult to clear. This can even require high pressure jetting to remove the grease. Be smart and don’t pour grease into your sink.
Sometimes roots from trees in front of your house can enter your sewer through small cracks or breaks in your old clay or cast iron sewer pipe, causing everything in your house to back up. Even years after a tree has been removed, the roots can still be a problem. If you have an accessible ground cleanout, oftentimes we can snake through the roots and then perform a camera inspection to see the extent of the problem. Some root problems are minor, and others need more extensive repairs. We can recommend a solution from just a basic snaking, to trenchless sewer replacement, and all areas in between.
