Clogged Drain Services in Crossville

Clogged Drain Solutions Near You

Dealing with clogged bathroom drains can be a major annoyance in our community. Fortunately, the majority of bathroom drain blockages are easily resolved with common tools like a plunger or a metal coat hanger. However, if the blockage is located deep within the pipelines, you can rely on our specialized assistance to resolve the problem.

Preventing Bathroom Clogs

Our proactive approach to preventing bathroom clogs aims to keep your daily routine as uninterrupted as possible. Here are some simple steps you can take to prevent clogs in your sinks, showers, and toilets:

  • Restrict Toilet Flushing: It is critical to limit toilet flushing to only toilet paper and human waste and to avoid disposing of any other items, including tissues.
  • Install Hair Screens: To prevent hair from entering and clogging your shower and sink drains, we recommend installing hair screens.
  • Address Slow Drains: Please contact us if you notice a slow-draining sink or shower. We can promptly employ boiling water to clear out potential obstructions.

Clogged Toilet

We advise against using harsh chemicals to clear toilet clogs because these substances can cause damage to the pipes and the sewage system as a whole. In the event of a toilet clog, our team has the necessary expertise. We have the necessary tools, including effective plungers, to handle the situation. There are several types of plungers available, but we will use the one that is best suited to your specific problem:

  • Cup Plungers: These are highly effective for clearing sink, tub, and floor drain blockages.
  • Flange Plungers: When faced with a toilet clog, we opt for a flange plunger to ensure optimal suction.
  • Accordion Plungers: Given their limitations, we avoid using accordion plungers as they are not as effective.

Clogged Tub and Shower Drains

Hair becoming trapped in tub and shower drains is a common cause of blockages. The stopper mechanism is prone to collecting hair washed down the drain, slowing drainage. Our strategy entails removing the screen cover and stopper and extracting the accumulated hair with specialized tools. If the problem persists, hot water is used to dissolve soap residue and remove any remaining hair.

Clogged Bathroom Sink

Bathroom sinks can become clogged due to a variety of factors such as hair, beard trimmings, hair products, makeup, and soap scum. This is another area in which we have experience. Sink blockages are most commonly caused by the stopper mechanism or the curved pipe beneath the drain known as the P trap. We adeptly remove the stopper and employ suitable tools to clear the blockage. If the P trap requires attention, we carefully remove the section of the pipe to thoroughly clean it.
