If wastewater just won’t seem to move down a drain quickly enough, it can be quite an annoyance. But it may actually be a much bigger deal than you would guess. A slow drain can develop into a much larger problem, and we recommend scheduling professional service as soon as possible to prevent complete stoppage or even raw sewage backing up into the home.
Is It a Problem Throughout the House?
When slow drains exist in multiple areas of the home, it may indicate a clog far along in the drain line. You won’t be able to reach this with common household plumbing tools, and if you leave it alone for too long, the clog may only worsen. This can cause sewage to back up through the sinks, tubs, and other drains.
For these drain and sewer line clogs, we strongly recommend that you schedule professional drain cleaning services. Professional drain snakes are able to reach clogs that you may not be able to access on your own. The process involves a thorough inspection to find the clog and tools that most homeowners don’t have access to, like high quality drain snakes and hydro jetting.
Solving Isolated Drain Clogs
When a single drain is not moving quickly enough, we always recommend a plunger. Drain cleaning chemicals are toxic, damaging to the pipes, and often ineffective. Isolated clogs can often be dislodged with the right amount of pressure from a plunger.
But sometimes, even clogs in a single sink or fixture will require professional service. Experts have drain snakes and inspection equipment that most homeowners don’t keep around—and probably wouldn’t know how to use anyway. And professional hydro jetting tools can blast away debris so that blockage is less likely to form again soon.
