Common Reasons for Costa Mesa Drain Cleaning
The kitchen and the bathroom are where the vast majority of drain clogs happen at home. While many of us are probably familiar with the hair buildup that can happen inside a shower or sink drain, the kitchen sink can often become partially or completely clogged by grease buildup. And when a toilet is clogged up beyond what a plunger can handle, the reason is often foreign objects like small toys or something that fell into the basin unnoticed from the counter above.
To avoid drain clogs, keep these things away from your drains:
- Flour and other powdered products that can become very sticky when water is added.
- Toys, small objects, and other foreign items.
- Chemicals and paints that can damage and corrode your pipes.
- Grease and oils used in cooking or cleaning can solidify and harden along your pipe walls.
- Paper towels, “flushable” wipes, and other personal care products.
Why Shouldn’t I Flush Flushable Wipes?
You may have got away with flushing these wipes for years without issue, but you should still consider yourself lucky. Especially in the case of older plumbing, they can still become trapped due to other things like grease buildup and create a blockage. While these wipes are touted as biodegradable, they often don’t fall apart as fast often as one might think and can create issues in sewer pumps, old pipes, and sewage systems. Once they’ve reached an area or caused a blockage far enough down the pipe, the professionals need to be called in. These wipes are a staple of many households, but they can end up costing more money than they’re worth if they get wrapped up in a sewage pump and shut the entire system down.
My Drain is Clogged! Is There Anything I Can Do Myself?
Of course. We always will lean towards giving us a call so we can provide you with a professional opinion, but there are a few things you can do yourself in the event of a drain blockage. Although, when you call us, you can take advantage of our Whole House Plumbing Inspection that gives you an overall and accurate view of your entire system.
In the event that a drain in your home has clogged, we recommend using safe methods that won’t harm your pipes. Chemical drain cleaners are heavily advertised, but can actually cause damage to your plumbing system and should be avoided for home use.
Three Methods We Recommend For Do-It-Yourself Drain Cleaning:
- The reliable plunger method is usually the first method everybody ties.
- Running hot water can sometimes dislodge clogs caused by grease buildups.
- Baking soda has many uses, including as a safe drain cleaner!
My Main Sewer Drain is Clogged
When this happens, it can be a very large issue. The team at Pristine Plumbing is trained and ready to help in this situation. Using our cutting edge technology such as sewer pipe camera inspections, we can find the root of the issue, and institute our professional sewer drain cleaning techniques to get the clog cleared and ensure there is no damage to your pipes or risk of a reclog.
Should I Clean Out My Sewer Line?
While few of our clients have a regularly scheduled maintenance for this, we do recommend a professional servicing any time you notice your drains have begun draining slowly, or are backing up. If the drainage issue is localized to one drain, you may only need that drain cleaned by our team of friendly plumbers. If the issue is happening all around your home, then this is most likely an issue at the main sewer line, which we are also ready to handle.
How Much Does A Sewer Line Cleaning Cost?
Since every home is different and every plumbing system within its walls and underground is different as well, the cost of a cleaning and repair will be dependent on the exact situation. With our equipment we can use to put a camera inside your sewer line and get an idea of the problem directly, we will be able to offer you an accurate estimate before the work is done. This avoids any surprises down the road because we take the guess work out of the job! There may be plenty of competent plumbers in Costa Mesa and the surrounding areas, but the experts at Pristine Plumbing and the state-of-the-art equipment we employ puts us above the rest.
