What is emergency drain cleaning and why do you need it

Emergency drain cleaning is a process that is used to clear blocked or clogged drains. This service is typically used when there is a backed-up drain or when the clog is causing water to flow slowly or not at all. Emergency drain cleaning should be performed by a professional plumber.

There are a few different reasons why you may need emergency drain cleaning. One reason is if your drains are clogged with hair, grease, or soap scum. This can cause water to back up in your sink or shower, and it can also lead to foul odors coming from your drains. Another reason you may need an emergency drain cleaning is if tree roots have grown into your sewer line and are blocking the flow of water.

If you have a clogged drain, it is important to call a professional plumber as soon as possible. Emergency drain cleaning is not a do-it-yourself project and trying to unclog your drains yourself can actually make the problem worse. A professional plumber will have the tools and knowledge necessary to safely and effectively clear your drains.

The different types of clogs that can occur

There are different types of clogs that can occur in a drain. One common type is a clog caused by hair. Hair can become caught in the drain and form a clog. Another type of clog is a build-up of grease or food. This can occur if food is not properly disposed of or if grease builds up in the drain. A third type of clog is a foreign object such as a toy or piece of jewelry. If any of these objects become lodged in the drain, they can cause a clog.

If you have a clogged drain, it is important to take care of it right away. A clogged drain can cause water to back up in the sink or shower, and it can also lead to bad odors. Emergency drain cleaning is a service that can help to clear a clogged drain. This type of service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A trained technician will use special equipment to remove the clog and restore your drain to its proper functioning.

How to tell if you have a clogged drain

If you're noticing water backing up into your sink, or your toilet isn't flushing properly, it's possible that you have a clogged drain. There are a few telltale signs to look out for:

  • Water backing up into your sink or toilet.

  • Gurgling noises coming from your drains.

  • Slow draining.

  • A bad smell coming from your drains.

If you're experiencing any of these problems, it's time to call a professional for emergency drain cleaning. 1-800-Plumber +Air of Huntsville is available 24/7 to clear your clogged drains and get your plumbing back in working order. We'll have your drains flowing freely in no time.

What causes clogged drains

Most people only think about clogged drains when they are already backed up and unable to use the sink, shower, or toilet. But did you know that there are a few simple things you can do to help prevent clogs in the first place?

One of the most common causes of clogged drains is hair. Be sure to keep hair out of your drains by using a drain guard or strainer. And if you see hair starting to build up, remove it before it has a chance to become a clog.

Another common cause of clogged drains is soap buildup. Over time, soap can form a scum that clings to the sides of your pipes and eventually starts to build up, causing a clog. You can help prevent this by using a water softener, which will help reduce the amount of soap scum that builds up.

Finally, grease and oil can also cause clogged drains. When you pour grease down the drain, it initially goes down smoothly. But as it cools, it can start to solidify and cling to the sides of your pipes. Eventually, this can lead to a clog. To help prevent this, never pour grease down the drain. Instead, let it cool and then throw it away in the trash.

If you do find yourself with a clogged drain, the best thing to do is call a professional. Emergency Drain Cleaning can help clear out your drains quickly and efficiently. We have the tools and experience to get your drains flowing again in no time. So if you're dealing with a clogged drain, don't wait - call us today!

What Does Cloudy Water Have to Do with Drain Cleaning?

You expect nothing less than sparkling, clear water when you turn on the faucet. When you notice cloudy or colored water, you have a problem!

There is a caveat - yellow, brown, blue, or green-tinged water may not qualify as an emergency. If you turn on the water and it's black, you're looking at signs you have mold present in your pipes. It's all that soap scum and hair stuck in the drain!

Black water flowing from your pipes can create a severe health risk, especially if you or anyone in your household or workplace has a sensitivity to mold.

Contacting a company that does emergency drain cleaning service is a step you must take when you notice cloudy or colored water. It could save your health (and your pipes). Next, we'll look at what types of companies handle drain cleaning.

Who Does Emergency Drain Cleaning?

Most people assume there isn't much difference between plumbing issues and problems with sewers and drains. It's a matter of what goes in and what goes out!

Plumbing problems stem from the system used by fresh water coming into your home and flowing through your pipes. Drains and sewers manage wastewater flowing out from toilets, sinks, showers, and floor drains.

Depending on who you call, some plumbers can take care of both types of issues. That said, not every plumber specializes in drain cleaning. To attack clogged drains effectively, you need a sewer and drain expert!

A company that offers drain cleaning services uses specialized tools and equipment. For example, 1-800-Plumber +Air of Huntsville uses video inspection cameras to perform pipe inspection. The trade tools designed for drain cleaning help professionals quickly diagnose the source of the drainage problem.

A professional drain cleaning company won't just come in and tell you about the issues. They'll clean the drains and then help you with suggestions to keep the drains flowing smoothly.

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.

How to Find a Service That Cleans Drains

While it's a great addition to your annual maintenance routine, many people don't schedule regular drain cleaning. Instead, they're forced into a corner when they have an emergency and tend to call the first company that pops up in an online search.

While that tactic may work, it also could mean you end up hiring the wrong company. Finding a service that cleans drains does often begin with an online search, but you should go beyond choosing a service based solely on their online presence.

First, be specific about what you need. Your search terms should include drain cleaning, but to narrow down your choices even further, make sure you type in the word emergency as well.

Second, while you're browsing their website, make sure the service provider you're looking at offers drain cleaning. Many people look specifically for a plumber to do this job, and we've already mentioned that not all plumbers clean drains.

Now, if you do find a company that offers both drain cleaning and general plumbing services, like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Huntsville, you'll be prepared for any kind of plumbing or drain emergency. There's nothing like one-stop-shopping when it comes to home and business maintenance!

One More Reason to Schedule Drain Cleaning

The most common cause of drainage issues is the big, nasty clog. There's another contributor to dirty drains, but it's an external rather than an internal problem.

If you enjoy the trees growing in your yard, you've noticed that many trees take a break during the colder months. They stop producing new growth. Your sewer system may get a temporary break too from interference caused by tree root invasion.

Come spring, tree roots seek out nutrients and water. Any weak spot in your pipes will attract the roots. Left on their own long enough, tree roots will grow until they clog or break a pipe or sewer line.

Even though a plumbing company may make the repairs, a drain cleaning service plays a significant role in the tree root dilemma.

Since they use video cameras, a drain cleaning service can determine the severity of the problem. Their inspection can detect any cracks and their size, which helps you decide what services you need.

As a proactive measure, drain cleaning with a hydro jet clears out the tree roots before they get out of control. Once you have clogged pipes, drain cleaning is an excellent way to not only get rid of roots but also removes sludge buildup—another cause of clogs.

Looking for a Reputable Drain Cleaning Service?

Reputation means the world when you ask someone you don't know to come into your home or business. A reputable drain cleaning service isn't shy about sharing their success stories.

When looking for a drain cleaning company, read the online reviews, both on its website and other referral sites. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, so ask people you know who've used each provider's services.

The team at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Huntsville is ready to take care of your plumbing needs and emergency drain cleaning. Contact us today to schedule service.
