Our professional plumbers have the professional tools and expertise necessary to provide your plumbing in Arlington services properly. Clogged drains can lead to burst drains, so it is best to address drain problems before they create more problems.
As most of the plumbing system is system hidden from sight, impending drain problems can only be determined by knowing the warning signs that professional drain cleaning may be necessary. Slow drains may seem a mere inconvenience as in the case of a slow draining shower when you use it, but clogs tend to continue to grow larger and will eventually lead to more serious problems. It is best to have a licensed plumber to provide a professional cleaning at the first sign of drain problems.
Many things can cause drains to become clogged or blocked. In the kitchen grease and food residue build up in the sink drain. In the shower and bathtub hair and soap scum accumulate to clog drains. There is no such thing as a good clog; any clog can lead to damage with cracked or burst drains. Having a professional plumber to inspect the drains and clean if needed is the best means of preventing damage to drains and restoring the proper drainage.
Some clogged drains are due to the invasion of tree roots into a cracked main drain line and if this has occurred repair will be necessary. Plumbers have the necessary equipment to provide a video inspection with a small camera of drain lines to determine the cause of slow or stopped up drains and to treat it as required.
A high pressured stream of water is the most typical means of safely cleaning drains. Many homeowners use harsh chemicals in an attempt to clean clogged drains. This can be a very bad idea as these chemicals can damage, sometimes irreparably, the drain lines. Many drain cleaners work by creating heat, and if your drains are PVC or other materials sensitive to high heat, the drain cleaner can literally melt drain lines, and it may not even fully resolve a clog. For the homeowner there is no way to check for the clearing of a clog. Our system of using pressurized water is a much safer means of drain cleaning and doesn’t use harsh chemicals that can end up in the environment. Once we have cleaned the drains, we will recheck them with our camera to ensure they are thoroughly clean. Should the clog be due to other reasons, tree roots for example, we have the equipment to power right through it.
Other signs’ that may indicate a clog is forming is plumbing gurgle. Gurgle occurs for example, when the washing machine pumps water out, and water bubbles up or “gurgles” from a nearby drain. This sign, especially if coupled with slow draining at any location may mean drain cleaning is needed. While gurgle may be due to a problem within the plumbing ventilation system it more often indicates the formation of a clog in the drain lines.
The plumbing ventilation system ensures that toxic sewer gases are vented to the outside of your home rather than inside the home. If there is a potential problem with plumbing ventilation it needs to be inspected to ensure your family’s safety, as well as comfort.
