However, you can identify a clogged drain through a wide array of signs indicating your pipes have a blockage.

  • Backed-up toilets

Specializing in Kitchen, Bathroom, & Floor Drains

Your home’s plumbing is complex and includes countless components working together to channel clean water to your appliances and fixtures and move wastewater out of your home. Drains are found throughout your residence, and each one performs a specific task. In your bathtub, sink, shower stall, toilet, and other bathroom fixtures, these drains continuously remove waste and wastewater and carry it away to a septic field or a municipal sewer line. The dishwasher, sink, and other kitchen features also depend on drains to channel water and the waste within it. You may even have floor drains in your basement, garage, and laundry room to avoid flooding when water leaks or your washing machine malfunctions. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Red Deer’s in-depth and diverse training and experience lets us perform a broad range of plumbing services, such as prompt, professional cleaning for residential clogged drains.

When Do I Need a Professional Plumber?

Clogged drains are a problem nearly every household must resolve at some point, but homeowners can try simple methods to clear clogs before getting in touch with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Red Deer. If your drain is slow, you can let the water drain most or all the way and boil a pot or kettle of water. Carefully pour the boiling hot water down the drain to dissolve and flush away obstructive materials. This technique works well on clogs formed by hardened grease and oil. If hot water doesn’t work, you can attempt to use a plunger and drain snake to pull and remove a clog. After pulling a clog close to the drain’s top by plunging your sink, you can pull out the clogging materials using the drain snake. If you can’t clear a clog using these methods, you might have a clog that’s too deep to fix with at-home remedies. We strongly recommend calling a professional plumber to resolve your drain issue if water continues to drain slowly or back up.

Should I Perform My Own Drain Cleaning?

You should leave plumbing services like drain cleaning to licensed, professional plumbing technicians. Driving to a hardware store and picking up a do-it-yourself drain-cleaning solution might seem appealing, but DIY tools and chemicals for residential plumbing issues can potentially damage your drains and other plumbing components. This damage may require expensive repairs in the not-too-distant future to get your pipes and drains back in top working condition. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Red Deer uses the best tools and equipment the plumbing industry offers to perform this service, and we pair our investments with industry-trusted techniques.
