Drain Cleaning

Every once in a while, those drain-cleaning liquids and foams may actually provide temporary relief to your clogged drain problem. 

Perhaps it will solve the issue for a couple of days, a week or a month. Then you’ll have to pour more of those nasty chemicals down your drain. 

The truth is, repeated continue use of those products can cause major long-term damage to your sewer system, potentially costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars in the long run. 

To truly get your drains unclogged, call the expert plumbers affiliated with Plumbers 911.

Why is my drain clogged?

One of the main causes of clogged drains are tree roots, which can get into both sanitary and storm sewer lines, causing major backups.

Tree roots are continually searching for a source of water and often times find this source thanks to old clay pipes. When initially installed,  clay pipes were strong and when the joints were properly sealed with concrete, it appeared roots could not get inside of them. Over time though, the concrete and clay pipes begin to wear down due to the roots and other external forces. Once a tree root gets inside a cracked pipe or missing concrete joint, chemical products will not solve this issue. 

In your kitchen, the buildup of food, grease, oils and fat from washing kitchenware and cooking supplies can clog a drain line. 

In your bathroom, hair, soap, toothpaste, conditioner and other body products will eventually create clogs, which can become difficult to remove as well. 

Other causes of a clogged drain are items flushed down a toilet, which should not be, such as paper towels. 

How to unclog my drain or sewer line?

When you are tired of wasting money by dumping chemicals down your drain, call Plumbers 911 for a referral to a licensed, insured, bonded and experienced plumber, who will snake out your drains and sewer lines.
