Drain clog

Any problems with water drainage in your home are cause alarm.  The backup of dirty water can cause a great deal of property damage.  You can be faced with an awful mess.  There is also a safety concern with contaminated water.  There are many possible sources of slow or non-flowing drains.  When a pipe breaks, it can collapse and cause a clog.  Poor installation, substandard materials, and tree roots can lead to pipes breaking.  Food, hair, and soap can build up between a drain and drain pipe.  These materials will slow water flow.  Eventually flow will stop completely.  An outside clog can occur after a heavy rain.  Leaves, dirt, and debris can block flood drains and downspout drains.  Kitchen drains experience problems with grease and soap.  Shower and tub drains suffer from hair and soap buildup.  Bathroom sink drains are prone to clogs from hair, toothpaste, and soap.  Toilets can be overwhelmed by excess paper.  Reaching for the plunger can actually worsen the problem.  The use of a plunger may push the clog deeper.  You can also damage the lines with chemicals.  It is best to call a licensed plumber for assistance.  A licensed plumber can identify the area and nature of the clog with specialized tools and techniques.  Video inspections use advanced technology to locate the source of troublesome clogs.  Hydro Jetting relies on high-pressure water flow to cut through obstructions.  Pressurized drain cleaning takes advantage of the force of water to actually scour the inside of lines.  It removes grease buildup inside of lines.  It will even scour away tree roots to improve overall flow.
