What to Do Until the Plumber Arrives

If you're experiencing a plumbing emergency, here are five things you can do while waiting for your plumber to arrive:

  1. Remove excess water: Use towels or a mop to remove excess water in your home, as water can ruin drywall and flooring and cause mold to develop.
  2. Take photos and videos: Quickly take a video or snap some photos, as this evidence may help with an insurance claim and help the plumber do their job.
  3. Turn off electricity: Turn off your water heater and other appliances that may come into contact with water to prevent damage to your water heater tank.
  4. Shut off water supply: Turn off your home's main water supply near your water meter or shut off the valve for the fixture that's clogged or leaking.
  5. Drain liquid from lines: Residual liquid will remain in your pipes even after the water supply is shut off. Go outside and turn on all spigots to thoroughly purge water from the system, which may help with insurance claims.

Hiring a Plumber vs. Fixing a Clogged Drain Yourself

A licensed and insured plumber has specific technology and tools to solve any plumbing issues that may arise. They can troubleshoot relatively quickly compared to a handyman or home DIYer, and they're sure to maintain the beauty of your kitchen or bathroom.

Hiring a professional to clean your home's drains yearly will prevent your sewer systems from becoming too full.

Drain Cleaning FAQ

Have questions about your clogged drain or how a professional can help? Below are some of the most frequently asked questions homeowners have concerning their drains.

Knowing When You Have a Clogged Drain

To make sure you handle your plumbing needs in a timely manner, it’s important to be able to identify a clogged drain. Fortunately, this is not usually too difficult.

Take a look at your drains. Is water pooling around your bathroom or kitchen drain? This is the first sign you may have a clog. What happens when you turn on the water? Does it go down right away, or does it build up, only to drain slowly long after you turn the water off? What happens when you flush your toilet? Is there a bubbling noise coming from your sink? What about when you turn on the dishwasher? Does your kitchen sink gurgle? Does it spit back up water or food? Any of these signs may indicate a plumbing problem, while multiple signs almost certainly mean you have at least a clogged pipe somewhere.

Knowing Why You Have a Clogged Drain

What is the cause of clogged drains, and how can you prevent them? Clogged drains can come from anything from hair and food going down the drain to mineral or rust deposits that have built up over time. What's important is knowing how to avoid a clogged drain, which you can do by being careful about what goes down the drain and by scheduling regular drain cleaning and pipe maintenance.

Average Drain Cleaning Cost

The cost of hiring a plumber for your home's drain cleaning needs may vary depending on your state. Most plumbing repairs cost $120 on average.
