Clogged drains are an inconvenient problem that can quickly become a serious threat to your home and your health if you don’t take timely action. When wastewater can’t run off, it will start overflowing in the drain, which can lead to standing water with organic waste and other contaminants in sinks, toilets and showers. This poses a serious threat to your and your family’s health. At the same time, if the water overflows, it can cause hundreds of dollars of water damage to your home.
Clearly, you don’t want to let a drain stay clogged any longer than you have to. But the good news is that you can sometimes fix a clogged drain yourself:
With all of these methods, make sure to clean the basins properly afterwards.
If these methods don’t work and the drain remains clogged, then it’s time to call a professional plumber.
When it comes to difficult, persistent clogs, a professional plumber has specialized equipment at his exposal that allows him to pinpoint exactly where in the system the problem is. He can use video camera inspection to locate the clog, after which he can remove it using hydro-jetting; a non-invasive technique that forces water at high pressure into the drain to flush out all blockages. He can also advise you on how to avoid clogs in the future.
