Clogged Drain Services in Hermiston

Clogged Drain Solutions Near You

Dealing with clogged bathroom drains can be extremely inconvenient for our community. Most bathroom drain blockages, fortunately, can be cleared with simple tools like a plunger or a metal coat hanger. However, if the obstruction is 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 ensures 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 disposing of 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: Do not hesitate to 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 harm the pipes and the sewage system. Our team is equipped to handle toilet clogs. We have the necessary tools to manage the situation, including effective plungers. 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

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 the drainage. Our strategy entails removing the screen cover and stopper and extracting the accumulated hair with specialized tools. If the problem persists, hot water dissolves soap residue and removes any remaining hair.

Clogged Bathroom Sink

Bathroom sinks can become clogged due to various factors, such as hair, beard trimmings, hair products, makeup, and soap scum. This is another area in which we have experience. Sink blockages are 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 a section of the pipe to clean it thoroughly.
