Popular Home Plumbing Services
We could write a novel about all of the plumbing services we offer to homeowners in Wilmington. Thanks to our extensive industry training, we can handle pretty much any plumbing issue that can strike your home.
However, there are a few plumbing services that stand out as some of our most common:
- Drain cleaning: Is there a drain in your home that takes a little too long – or way too long – to actually drain away water? Stop letting it frustrate you whenever you use it. Instead, call on us to get it cleaned professionally. Bad blockages stand no match to our HydroScrub® jetting technology.
- Pipe repair: Broken, leaky, frozen, and rusted pipes are a common problem among most homes, especially frozen pipes during the dead of winter. It is only natural for the passage of time to start to take a toll on pipework. If you have noticed your water bills going up or a water stain forming in your home, you should arrange a leak detection and repair service from our team.
- Sewer line repair: A damaged sewer line could cause hazardous wastewater to backflow into your potable water or overflow out of toilets and other drains. The situation is enough to literally make you sick! Protect your health and that of your family by using our emergency plumbing repair services, including sewer line work.
- Water heater installation: To end your day the right way, a hot shower is a great choice. If your water heater has been struggling to heat your water or to provide enough hot water to last a full shower, then it might be time to get a new, upgraded water heater installed. Our experts can even install state-of-the-art tankless water heaters.
What Usually Causes a Drain Clog?
On the topic of common plumbing issues our Wilmington home plumbers handle, drain clogs are definitely at or near the top of the list. Why do we get called out for so many drain-cleaning jobs, though? What is winding up down drains so frequently that shouldn’t be there?
The usual drain clog culprits in a residential plumbing system are:
- Hair: Showering and rinsing your hair frequently is a necessity that can wreak havoc on your shower drain. A hair catch can help stop most of the hair from going down the drain, but, eventually, you will likely need a drain cleaning service.
- Soap scum: Body soaps, hand soaps, bath bombs, and dish soaps can also contribute to a clog by causing soap scum to accumulate down the drain. Bar soap and bath bombs are usually the greatest clog offender, especially if the bath bomb contains more than just oils and salts.
- Incorrect foods: Not all food can go down a garbage disposal. You should not be putting eggshells, stringy vegetables, most pasta, coffee grounds, and grease or oil down there, to only name a few.
- Food packaging: When in the middle of cooking, it can be tempting to use the sink as a trashcan and toss whatever you want down there. Don’t do this, though. Little bits of paper and plastic can be enough to stick to the inside of the drain and start a clog.
- Menstrual hygiene products: Please remember that any menstrual hygiene product should be disposed of using a trashcan, not a toilet. Some of these products even market themselves as “flushable” but, as most any plumber will tell you, this is not true.
