Warning Indications That You Need a Professional Drain Cleaning Service
Should your drains or toilets clog up, you may well have a serious health hazard on your hands. This is not a job you should tackle yourself. In a serious case, our highly trained plumbers may have to wear protective clothing to reduce the risk of infection.
Most people will need a professional drain service at some point but keeping a sharp lookout for common warning signs is a good way to stop a small problem from becoming a big one.
Has Your Sink or Bathtub Started to Drain Slowly?
One of the first signs of a problem is that the sink or bathtub will not drain as quickly as it used to. This is not surprising as many of us will put items like grease or food down a sink. Grease particularly will stick to the side of the pipework and build up over time. This causes the pipes to become narrower allowing less water to flow through.
Living in a hard water area can cause problems too. The minerals dissolved in the water can form into insoluble lumps that will grow over time clogging your pipework. If your sink or bathtub is starting to drain slowly, you need a professional drain cleaning service.
Your Toilet Keeps Clogging
Apart from water, toilet paper, human waste, and some cleaning products, nothing should go down a toilet. Toilet paper is designed to dissolve quickly in water, but ordinary paper products like Kleenex and wet wipes will not dissolve quickly in water and are the cause of many a clogged toilet.
Tempting as it is to pour chemicals down the toilet, we would advise against it. Frequent use of these harsh chemicals is not only damaging to the environment but can corrode the plumbing. If you do not act a toilet could eventually overflow causing a serious health problem. So, the sooner you call bluefrog plumbing the sooner you can resolve the issue.
Standing Water in the Sink
Eventually, a sink will stop draining completely if it clogs up too much. If you have not called for a professional drain cleaning service before you should do so now. If the problem is worse and you have standing water in multiple sinks and plumbing appliances around your home your sewage pipe could be clogged. If you also notice a sewage smell and discolored water backing up through your sink and toilet, you need to call bluefrog plumbing for a sewer drain service immediately.
We use a small camera mounted on a wire to visually inspect the pipe that is clogged. The size of the clog and the condition of your pipework will determine the course of action taken. A blast of high pressure with Hydro jetting will do the trick most times, but if we detect damage to the pipework, we may need to reline the pipes or replace them. Whatever, the outcome bluefrog’s experienced team is on hand to help you.
Preventing Emergency Drain Cleaning
Don’t pour grease and food down the sink is a good start. Dispose of it in your compost. Buy hair traps for the bath, shower, and sink in your bathroom and empty them regularly.
We recommend that you schedule maintenance for your plumbing. Cleaning the pipes regularly will eliminate smaller clogs before they cause problems. Regular drain cleaning can detect early signs of wear and tear on your pipes and seams, allowing early repair.
