A clogged drain in your toilet, sink, shower, outdoor drains & floor drains can occur as a result of a gradual build up of material over time, or a specific object being stuck in the drain. Everything from hair, food, grease, dirt, leaves, toys & wedding rings can clog up your drains.
Clearly if no water is going down the drain, your drain is clogged, but your drain is also clogged if water starts pooling at the bottom of a sink or shower and does not drain quickly. Although some people will simply deal with this inconvenience, ignoring the issue can exacerbate the problem and result in more serious & costly repairs down the road.
When our plumbers arrive at your home, their trucks are fully-stocked allowing them to deal with the issue right away. Through various means such as plunging and/or snaking the drain, our plumbers will generally be able to fix the problem. When the drain cannot be unclogged using traditional means it becomes necessary to use specialized drain video camera inspection in order to properly diagnose the issue and see exactly where the clog is occurring and what exactly is clogging the drain. Once the root cause is identified we can rectify the issue.
Although it won't unclog your drains, pouring boiling hot water down the drains periodically can help prevent a build up of material.
