Clogged Drain Services in Torrance, CA

Clogged Drain Solutions Near You

Dealing with blocked bathroom drains can be a significant inconvenience for our local community. Fortunately, the majority of bathroom drain blockages can be effectively resolved using common tools such as a plunger or a metal coat hanger. However, in cases where the blockage is situated deep within the pipelines, you can rely on our specialized assistance to address the issue.

Preventing Bathroom Clogs

Our proactive approach to preventing bathroom clogs aims to ensure that your daily routine is not disrupted. Here are some practical measures we suggest implementing to prevent clogs in your sinks, showers, and toilets:

  • Restrict Flushing: It's important to restrict toilet flushing to only toilet paper and human waste, avoiding the disposal of any other items, including tissues.
  • Install Hair Screens: We recommend the installation of hair screens over your shower and sink drains to prevent hair from entering and causing blockages.
  • Address Slow Drains: If you notice a slow-draining sink or shower, do not hesitate to contact us. We can promptly employ boiling water to clear out potential obstructions.

Clogged Toilet

We advise against the use of harsh chemicals for resolving toilet clogs, as these substances can result in damage to the pipes and the wider sewage system. In cases of toilet clogs, our team possesses the necessary expertise. We possess the appropriate tools, including effective plungers, to manage the situation. There are several types of plungers available, but we will employ the most suitable one for 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

Blockages in tub and shower drains are often the result of hair becoming trapped. The stopper mechanism is prone to collecting hair that is washed down the drain, causing drainage to slow down. Our strategy involves removing the screen cover and stopper and using specialized tools to extract the accumulated hair. If the problem persists, we use hot water to dissolve soap residue and eliminate any remaining hair.

Clogged Bathroom Sink

Bathroom sinks are susceptible to clogging due to various elements like hair, beard trimmings, hair products, makeup, and soap scum. Our expertise also extends to this area. Sink blockages typically occur at the stopper mechanism or within the curved pipe beneath the drain, known as the P trap. We adeptly remove the stopper and employ suitable tools to clear the blockage. Should the P trap necessitate attention, we cautiously remove the section of the pipe to cleanse it thoroughly.
