Possible clogged drain causes:
A drain can become clogged due to a myriad of causes, though they are most often the result of:
It is important to take preventative measures and be mindful of what is flushed down your drains to keep water flowing and avoid disruptions with your plumbing. Installing hair guards in your shower and bathtub drains, only grinding small, soft food particles in your garbage disposal, disposing of kitchen grease and oils in the garbage, and periodically cleaning your drains with baking soda and white vinegar can all help to minimize blockages.
What Happens When Roots Enter Drain Lines?
Tree and shrub roots inside your plumbing will quickly grow and expand if left undisturbed, placing pressure on your pipes. This can eventually lead to cracks or even a complete pipe collapse, requiring the pipe to be replaced. Roots can also grow to fill the entire width of a pipe and catch debris from your home’s plumbing along the way, leading to reduced flow, slow drains, and oftentimes complete blockage. Fortunately, our plumbers in Los Angeles have the equipment and skills to power through most plant roots within your pipes, leaving your pipes clear and flowing freely. If roots have caused your pipes to crack or burst, we can use state-of-the-art trenchless pipe repair techniques to mend the affected area with minimal disruption to your property.
Can I Unclog a Drain Myself?
Attempting to handle a clogged drain yourself could present more of a challenge than you anticipated. Store-bought drain cleaners can contain corrosive elements that could damage your pipes. Likewise, many inexperienced homeowners tend to exert too much force when attempting to snake a drain themselves, resulting in cracked or burst pipes. Our Los Angeles drain cleaning experts can quickly clean your drains to get your plumbing working again.
