What Leads to Clogs in Drain Pipes
Drain clogs are a common concern for homeowners, and understanding their causes is essential for preventing plumbing issues. Here are the common reasons why drain pipes become clogged:
Accumulation of Grease and Food Debris: Kitchen sink drains often clog due to the improper disposal of cooking oil, grease, and food particles. Over time, these substances build up and obstruct the pipe.
Hair and Soap Residue: In bathroom drains, hair and soap scum are frequent culprits. They combine to create a sticky barrier that impedes water flow.
Foreign Objects: Accidentally dropping items like jewelry, small toys, or excessive toilet paper into drains can lead to blockages.
Mineral Deposits: Hard water can cause minerals to accumulate within pipes, gradually reducing the pipe's diameter and hindering water flow.
Intrusion of Tree Roots: Outdoor drains and sewer lines may be infiltrated by tree roots, leading to blockages that often require professional assistance.
Hygiene Product Buildup: Flushing hygiene products like wet wipes or sanitary napkins can result in significant clogs in toilets and sewer lines.
Improper Installation: Drainage problems can arise from poorly installed plumbing systems with incorrect slopes or connections.
Aging and Deterioration: Older pipes may deteriorate, rust, or corrode over time, contributing to blockages.
Promptly addressing clogs is crucial to prevent further damage and backups. While DIY solutions can work for minor clogs, professional drain cleaning services can efficiently clear blockages, prevent future issues, and extend the life of your plumbing system. For persistent or severe clogs, don't hesitate to consult our experts at Bedell Home Services. We have the expertise and equipment to tackle even the most challenging drain clogs, ensuring your plumbing operates smoothly.
Clear the Toughest Blockages with Sewer Jetting
When you choose us as your sewer cleaning company, you gain access to the latest plumbing solutions for your sewer drain clogs. Our sewer drain service includes hydrojetting, which uses high-pressure water to blast away tree roots, grease buildup, and other stubborn blockages. This process also cleans the sides of your pipes to reduce the likelihood of recurring clogs.
Unlike other methods that use chemicals that can damage both your pipes and the environment, hydrojetting only uses pressurized water, making it eco-friendly and better for your plumbing system. This technique also uses a flexible hose to reach deep into pipes of any shape and size.
If you’re seeing greywater puddles or lush grass growth over your sewer line, chances are you have a leak. Give us a call for sewer line repair services.
Prevent the Need for Clogged Drain Repair with Routine Cleanings
You can opt to take a preemptive strike against clogs and other drain problems by simply scheduling drain cleaning services every 12-18 months. This approach can extend the life of your pipes, too, as it removes mineral buildup that contributes to corrosion.
When we regularly service your drains, we can also identify other plumbing problems before they cause further complications. Our experienced plumbers will find issues, such as pipe leaks and improper drain grading, and resolve them before they can cause further problems.
