Mr. Rooter Clogged Drain Repair & Drain Cleaning Service in Troy NY

It is very normal for people not to think about where the water goes once it rinses down the bathtub, shower, or sink. The drains and pipes that are designed to carry this water away from your house are hidden under the house, in cupboards, and generally out of sight. When water comes into your home and is used, whether to wash dishes, take a shower, or flush the toilet, it is considered used and referred to as “gray” water. This bacteria-laden water must be diverted away from the home and to the sewer system to preserve a healthy environment.

One of the main parts of a drainage system is the drain trap. This essential piece is a length of pipe that has a curve in it and is meant to trap water, which prevents the rising of sewage gases from coming into your home. The general design of this pipe makes it more susceptible to large pieces of debris from getting stuck in the curve causing a clog. Also, when hair, grease, food, and soap are repeatedly rinsed down the drain it can cause a build-up on the curved trap slowing the flow of water and eventually stopping completely.

The team of plumbing experts at Mr. Rooter® of Troy knows how important it is to quickly locate a drain clog and remove it. Allowing a back-up of gray water to sit in a basin is unsanitary and, if left unfixed, can cause a serious health hazard. At Mr. Rooter of Troy we want you to feel safe and confident in your choice of plumbing expert. We will always provide you with exceptional service and fix your plumbing issue right – the first time!

What Might Cause a Drain Clog In My House?

Most of the time, a drain clog is caused by a build-up of food, hair, grease, and soap. This residue slowly attaches to the inside walls of the pipes in your drainage system and causes the pipe diameter to narrow, eventually causing a complete blockage. If you notice that a gurgling sounds tarts to come from your drains, or you notice that water is not draining or is draining slowly, it is best to contact the professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Troy.

What Signs Of A Clog Should I Look For?

The overall design of your toilet is fairly similar to every other drain in your house. The general purpose of this design is to carry used water away from your home. Each of the fixtures in your home has its own drainage system, including your toilet. However, if you notice bubbles rising up in your toilet bowl water, or, you notice water backing up in your sink, shower, or tub, call Mr. Rooter of Troy to receive a free estimate and schedule an appointment.
