Do I Have a Clogged Drain?

How to Clear a Minor Clog

We will help you through the process of trying to unclog a minor block in your drain. We don’t recommend using over-the-counter products that claim they can unclog your drains. Some of these products do more harm than good to your pipes. The easiest way to try to clear a clogged drain includes the following:

  • Fill the clogged sink halfway with water.
  • Cover the overflow hole and use a plunger to try to dislodge the clog.
  • Repeat this process a few times.
  • You can use a drain snake to attempt to dislodge a shower drain clog.

 We Answer Your Frequently Asked Questions

Our primary objective is to enlighten you about the ins and outs of plumbing systems and drainage. Recognizing and addressing issues with your pipes or drains in a timely manner is crucial. With this in mind, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions from our clients to guide you in understanding when it would be most appropriate to contact us:

When Should You Call Us for Assistance?

At times, you may observe that the water in your home is not efficiently draining, signaling a potential problem. Be mindful of the following symptoms to determine when our intervention is required: 

  • Pools of water form due to slow drainage.
  • Toilet water bubbles when you use the bathroom sink.
  • Water accumulates around your shower, bathtub, or sink drains.
  • Unexpected noises originate from the drain while your washing machine or dishwasher is running.
  • If you notice foul smells coming from any drain, it is a clear sign to contact us.

What Is the Best Drain Cleaning Method? 

Drain blockages are a prevalent problem, yet they are often straightforward to resolve. Occasionally, you may encounter a more stubborn clog requiring additional effort to dislodge. Instances such as a shower drain blocked by hair, soap scum, or other bathroom products are expected. In these situations, a drain snake can prove beneficial to cleaning elements out. However, if you're facing a more severe issue, you might find the following tips handy, or feel free to reach out to us for extra support:

  • Start by filling your sink with water, ensuring it doesn't reach over the top.
  • If your kitchen sink has two sections, use a damp cloth to seal one, creating a pressure build-up.
  • For a bathroom sink blockage, conceal the overflow hole.
  • Proceed to use your plunger on the exposed drain.
  • Implement a series of plunger pushes and pulls, remove it, and repeat the steps as needed.

What Drain Types Do We Clean? 

The intricate piping network in our homes is integral to ensuring seamless water flow. However, when obstructions occur, or items get lodged within the pipes, it can spiral into a messy situation if left unattended. While many DIY solutions are readily available, it's often helpful to hire the help of a plumbing expert. Below, we outline common plumbing issues you may face:

  • Kitchen Drain Blockages: Accumulation of substances such as soap, fats, leftover food particles, and grease in your kitchen pipes often results in hard-to-clear blockages.
  • Bathroom Drain Blockages: In bathrooms, lack of proper cleanliness can lead to obstructions from hair, soap scum, toothpaste, or excess toilet paper, causing drainage problems.
  • Utility Room Drain Blockages: If you detect malfunctioning drains or an unusual presence of water in your laundry or utility room, dirt or other substances are likely creating blockages within the pipes.
  • Sewer Drain Blockages: Your sewer drains are critical in discharging wastewater from your home. Any noted blockages or issues should be addressed promptly to prevent significant concerns.

How Can I Prevent My Drains from Clogging? 

When you first notice an issue with your drains, it's best not to leave them alone. You should contact a professional immediately to ensure your system runs correctly. This might involve regular inspections of your plumbing and staying alert for indicators of possible malfunctioning in your system.
