There are a variety of different drains around your house that need to be kept clean so they work properly and immediately. Our Birmingham plumbers have the training and tools to provide a full range of drain cleaning services, including:
Grease, soap and food waste can take their toll, making your drains clog and run more slowly over time.
Main Sewer Lines
The clogging culprit here is usually water-seeking roots that can actually break through the line and clog the drain.
If you’re standing in water, your tub or shower trap and drain pipe is probably clogged with soap and hair, and a shower/bathtub drain repair or cleaning may be needed.
Bathroom Sink Drains
If you lose something down the drain, don’t run any more water. Call us and we should be able to retrieve the lost item without too much difficulty.
A clogged toilet is often caused by attempting to flush facial tissue, baby wipes or other products that don’t disintegrate the way toilet paper does.
Basements, laundry rooms, garages, patios, driveways and even older bathrooms often have a drain to carry away water and prevent flooding and these require regular cleaning.
How to Prevent a Clogged Drain
As with most plumbing emergencies, in most cases a clogged drain is completely preventable. Some of the best tips for preventing clogged pipes include:
Ensure no food or hair enters your pipes by installing a screen over the drains. These can be bought at almost any hardware store.
Run hot water down your drain at least once per week to quickly clean it out.
Keep hard items like shells or bones out of your garbage disposal.
Ensure that things like grease never get rinsed down the drain.
