Mr. Rooter Drain Cleaning & Clog Repair Service in Schenectady

Have you ever thought about where the water goes after it gets rinsed down the drain of your bathtub, sink, or shower drains? For most people it is assumed that this water simply goes down the drain and disappears. In fact, there is a complex configuration of pipes and drains at each of the fixtures in your home that work to divert the used water or “gray” water away from your home. This drainage organization is essential to your overall plumbing system. If any part of it gets clogged or starts draining slowly, it can have a costly impact on the plumbing in your home.

One main component of a drainage system is the drain trap, this important element is a piece of pipe that is curved and is meant to trap water to prevent sewer gasses from coming into the home. The curve in this pipe makes it more susceptible to clogs. When big pieces of debris are rinsed down the drain, they can become caught in the curve of the trap. Also, when soap, hair, and grease are repeatedly rinsed down the drain they can build up on the curve of the trap and cause the flow of water to slow down, or stop all together.

At Mr. Rooter® of Schenectady our team of plumbing experts have the experience and the training to locate the clog, no matter where it is, and quickly remove it. When a drain is clogged it can cause bacteria-laden gray water to back-up in your sink, tub, or shower. This water can cause a health hazard for your family.  We understand how important it is to locate and remove drain clogs quickly to avoid this unsanitary situation.

What Causes Drain Clogs in My Home?

If you notice that a drain in your home is releasing water slowly or not at all, it can often be attributed to a drain clog. These clogs are usually caused by repeatedly rinsing grease, soap, and hair down the drain causing a build-up on the inside walls of the pipes. If you start to hear gurgling sounds coming from your drains or, you see that water is backing up or draining slowly, contact Mr. Rooter of Schenectady for a free estimate.
