Signs of Residential Clogged Drains

With service professionals standing by 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to answer your call if you're dealing with standing water or other issues, we’re always here to help.

- Soggy areas on the lawn
- Foul odors coming from drains
- Water pooling around sinks, showers, bathtubs, and laundry appliances
- Sewage coming back up through the drains

The experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dubuque are experienced with clearing and cleaning all types of residential drains, including emergency cleaning services for clogged drains.

When Should I Call a Service Professional?
We understand if you have a clogged drain and want to try a few things before contacting a local plumber. Some of the steps you can take include:
- Let the water drain all the way, and then carefully pour boiling water down the drain to try to break up some of the hardened debris lining the inside of the pipes.
- You can also use a plunger and drain snake to pull the clog close to the top with the snake to remove the unwanted materials.
If these methods don't effectively clear your drain, your clog might be too deep to clear without professional help. If your water still drains slowly or continues to back up, our service professionals are available to help.
Should I Clean My Drains Myself?
While it might be tempting to purchase chemical drain cleaning supplies from your local grocery store, having your residential drains professionally cleaned is important. Not only are chemical drain cleaners less effective than industry-trusted techniques and equipment, but they can also cause further damage to your residential plumbing system. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dubuque uses the most advanced industry techniques and state-of-the-art equipment for cleaning residential drains.
