Your home or business is equipped with many drains for: toilets, sinks, bathtubs, sewage, main water lines, and more. Most people don’t think about these drains much, but the drains are actually doing a very important job and need regular maintenance. As waste goes down the drain, residue will adhere to the interior of the drainage tubes. Oils and foods can build up in the drain, as can mineral deposits and other impurities. If you don’t clean the buildup out of your drain, you will eventually face a clog or backup.
When drain problems occur, you won’t be able to use your plumbing system anymore. Since the water won’t be able to escape through the drain, the water will instead pool at the source. Not only is this an inconvenience, but the overflowing water can cause serious damage to your home. In the case of sewage drain problems, waste water can also pose a health risk.
Drain problems can occur at any time of day or night. That is why we at Roseville Plumbing Doctor offers emergency drain cleaning services. Don’t wait until morning or the next available appointment time to have your drains cleaned. Just give us a call and we will dispatch an expert plumber to your home or business to take care of the problem.
What to Do If You Have Drainage Problems
Many homeowners will first try to fix a clogged or backed up drain themselves using a plunger or drain cleaning chemicals. Plungers can be very effective in forcing out large clogs. If the drain problem is due to layers of buildup though, the plunging won’t do much good.
We recommend using caution with drain cleaning chemicals. These products are highly toxic and some can react with materials, producing byproducts like explosive hydrogen vapors. If you do decide to use a drain cleaning chemical, follow the instructions precisely. If the product does not succeed in fixing the problem, do not add more of the chemical. This will only make it back up in the drain where it can release fumes or cause your pipes to corrode. Never add another drain cleaning product as it can cause a dangerous reaction with the first product. Instead, immediately call Roseville Plumbing Doctor for emergency drain cleaning services.
