We will be able to fix and clean everything without disrupting your life.

Call a Professional for a Sewer/Drain Clog Fix

Common Causes of Clogged Drains

There are various problems that can be fixed with a professional touch, at a reasonable cost. In fact, the expense is often easy to manage. A drain cleaning professional can determine underlying issues with your plumbing. Some of the most common causes of drain problems include hair, dirt, debris, or calcium and carbon build up in the pipes. When you get professional rooter services we ensure the clogs are removed if they are organic, and if you have calcium build up or damage to the pipelines, we can fix it with relative ease.

Grease Build Up Requires Unclogging Drains

Oftentimes, grease can build up inside the drain or the pipe it is connected to. Grease can build up very quickly, especially in a kitchen sink or dishwasher drain because hot grease is more fluid. When it cools, the grease sticks to the inner lining of the pipe. It accumulates over time until the space inside narrows and water cannot drain properly. There are various solutions a professional can offer, including high-pressure water jetting, or hydro-jetting, which clears objects with pressurized water. This is an effective alternative to methods such as snaking equipment through the pipe or laying new pipe from the inside.

Surprisingly, Soap!

The soap you use in the shower and for the laundry can also cause a blockage. It can stick to the walls, slowly at first, but the soap eventually builds up and clogs the pipe. You will need a professional who knows how to fix clogged drains to get all the gunk out, but there are other reasons drains can become clogged. Old pipes can move due to ground shifting and settling. Short sections of concrete or clay pipe can shift out of place and disrupt the flow of water. Know when to call a plumber, so they can find the problem and replace damaged pipe; otherwise, there’s no cleaning job that will restore your plumbing.

Don’t Risk A DIY Blockage Fix

A professional plumber knows the right equipment and how to use it. If you try to fix the problem yourself, you may use the wrong tools or be injured if you don’t know how to properly use them. It can also be difficult to know exactly where the problem is. You might end up working in the wrong area and wasting valuable time in the process. Safe blockage removal from a sewer drain requires professional experience, training, and specialized tools. For example, using a rooter machine involves careful preparation and work to ensure obstructions are removed with as little risk as possible, and without damaging the pipeline.

Old pipes can’t always be cleaned out to get your drains working again. Tree roots can also be a problem because sewer pipes contain the water and nutrients trees search for. Water pipes built before 1970 are the most vulnerable, because they were made of concrete or clay and not always 100% watertight. The roots can either crush the pipe or penetrate it and grow inside, reducing the internal diameter and blocking the flow of water. Pressure from soil can crush old, brittle pipe as well, but the problem can also come from within as water erodes and weakens the pipe walls from inside.

Rooter Guard Knows How to Fix the Problem

Whether you’re having problems with home plumbing or an issue with a commercial sink drain in your business, our technicians will be there to help. Snaking a drain is no problem for our technicians so there’s no real reason to try to fix a complicated problem yourself. There are lots of self-help resources that tell you about snaking and rooting. However, our services come with the experience of a professional and reasonable prices. Why take the risk when you can have the job guaranteed to be done right the first time?

Signs You Need Professional Service

The professionals know what equipment to use and when. There are instances when you would not want to use a drain cleaner or even a rooter machine, which can cause more damage depending on what is causing the blockage. Professionals also know how to fix the problem, so it does not come back; even if you fix the immediate issue such as a backed up drain, there’s no guarantee you have reached a dependable resolution. If your drains are slow, you hear gurgling toilets, or sewage is backing up through your drains, call us right away. Such an issue can cause major damage not to mention health problems, and at the very least a stinky situation.
