Emergency Plumbers Near Me | JustCallHeritage.com

Your drains and sewer lines are some of the most hard-working pipes in your plumbing system, tasked with moving wastewater away and keeping your home clean. Because they are constantly bombarded with the worst of your home, materials can build up over time causing these lines to clog, potentially backing up waste into your home.

While you can usually open a clogged toilet with a plunger, bigger issues require the help of a professional to get repaired. If you spend more time cleaning out backups or notice that drains are working slower, it might be time to call the experts.

Drain and Sewer Cleaning Service FAQs

What are the benefits of drain cleaning?

Common drain cleaners you get at hardware stores contain harsh and abrasive chemicals, which can eat through pipes and do even more damage to your plumbing system. Calling in an expert and licensed plumber can use state-of-the-art tools and techniques to clean out drains and extend the life of your plumbing system.

When you call Heritage for drain and sewer cleaning, not only will we do the job professionally, but you can also benefit from:

  • Reduced chances of drain and sewer line clogs in the future
  • Faster draining from sinks, bathtubs, and showers
  • Break up bacteria and mold colonies forming in your pipes
  • Clean out abrasive and corrosive chemicals which can eat away at pipes and cause leaks
  • Increased peace-of-mind for the life of your home

What methods do you use to unclog drains?

The specially trained technicians at Heritage use multiple tools to determine where clogs are and how to clean them out, including video camera inspections and drain snaking.

  • Video Camera Inspections: As the name implies, our technicians can use a video camera attached to a long line to see where clogs are in your plumbing system in real-time, and how severe they might be. Instead of guessing at where the problem is, a video inspection pinpoints where the issue is, giving you the best information on how to alleviate the situation. Video camera inspections also let technicians identify potentially bigger issues, like the state of pipes that may need repaired or replaced in the near future.
  • Drain Snaking: Also known as augers or a plumber’s snake, drain snakes work like a giant corkscrew to power through clogged spots to let water flow freely once again. Instead of using a consumer-grade hand-powered snake, our augers are motorized, making them much more effective in breaking through and clearing clogs the first time.

What are the common causes of clogged drains?

For many families, a sink with a garbage disposal may seem like an easy place to dispose of waste, like hot grease, unwanted scraps, or used cotton swabs. Over time, these items can harden in your pipes and start building up a major clog that could do damage to your home. Some of the most common materials that cause drain clogs include:

  • Cooking grease, including oils and animal fats
  • Large food scraps
  • Food peels from fruits and vegetables
  • Egg shells
  • Coffee grinds
  • Cotton swabs
  • Hair
  • Soap scum

Watching Drains Move Slowly? It’s Time to Call Heritage

Clogs can happen any time from the gradual buildup of things we discard daily. Hair, dirt, grease, food scraps, and sediment can all collect behind drains and into your pipes, creating clogs that can back up into your home.

It’s impossible to know when a clog will create issues for your home or what caused them in the first place. Even with careful planning, blockages can build up and create serious inconveniences. If you’re seeing any of these issues, it’s time to call Heritage for an inspection and repair plan:

  • Drains and toilets are making gurgling or burping sounds
  • Sinks, bathtubs, and showers are slow to drain after usage
  • Water is backing up or overflowing into drains, toilets, and bathtubs
  • Drains and other water fixtures are emitting sewage or other foul odors
