Yes, getting your drains cleaned regularly is a good idea. Over time, drains can accumulate debris, grease, hair, and other materials, leading to clogs and slow drainage. Regular drain cleaning helps prevent clogs, reduces the risk of sewer backups, and ensures proper drainage. It also helps maintain better hygiene and prevents foul odors in your home. Professional drain cleaning services use specialized equipment to remove debris and buildup effectively, keeping your plumbing system running smoothly and preventing costly plumbing issues.
To clean drains without damaging pipes, avoid using harsh chemical drain cleaners as they can corrode or weaken the pipe material. Instead, use safer alternatives like a mixture of baking soda and vinegar or a biodegradable enzyme cleaner. For manual cleaning, use a drain snake or auger to dislodge debris without applying excessive force. Regular maintenance with gentle cleaning methods can help prevent clogs and maintain the integrity of your pipes, ensuring a properly functioning plumbing system without causing damage.
Professional Solutions for Clogged Drains
Drains and sewer lines are often overlooked in home maintenance. In fact, we almost never even think of the drain or the main sewer line, until there is a clog or a backup.
Sometimes, drainage issues are the result of more than just a little gunk in a drain line; sometimes they are a symptom of a larger problem within your sewer line.
The problem may be in the main sewer line, if you notice:
- Multiple slow or clogged drains.
- Gurgling noises in the drains.
- A smell of sewage inside the house.
- The water level going up or down in your toilets for no reason.
- Water coming up from the sewer line cleanout.
A problem in the main sewer line can cause wastewater to back up in the drains and enter your home. This is a serious health hazard for your family and should be addressed immediately by a qualified Canton drain cleaning and repair expert. Regardless of the scope of your problem, we offer sewer and drain services to solve any trouble.
Sometimes the only option to effectively fix a clogged drain line is the repair or replacement of a sewer line or section of line. This is especially true if a sewer camera reveals that you have any of the following problems:
- Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
- Severe grease buildup or a foreign object restricting flow.
- Corrosion of an older pipe that caused the pipe to break or collapse.
- A “bellied” pipe where a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a low spot in the line where paper and waste collect and cause repeated blockages.
- Leaking joints where the seals between sections of pipe have broken, allowing water and sewage to escape.
An excessive amount of roots in the line that cannot be cleared using a sewer machine.
Tree Roots & Drain Clogs
One of the most common causes of main line clogs are tree roots. While searching for water, tree roots will often find a source of nutrient rich water seeping through a crack in a sewer pipe. As the roots make their way inside the drain line, paper and other solid material get caught and cause blockages. Eventually, as the roots continue to grow, they will block the flow of water through the line.
A professional plumber can safely use drain cleaning equipment to clear small roots, but after roots have grown for many years, the sewer line may need to be replaced. We can run a sewer camera down the line to help you decide whether you need to replace the entire line or just a section of it.
Fiber optic video cameras allow plumbing contractors to actually see into pipes to determine the cause of stubborn drain blockages and determine the condition of the line itself. The images captured by the camera are transmitted to a device operated by the plumber. These images are recorded for further review by you and the plumber. At the same time, a radio transmitter on the camera records the physical location of the line and its depth from the surface so that the appropriate repairs can be properly planned and implemented.
