Obstructed pipes can quickly lead to a drain backup. When caught early enough, your drain can be repaired before your drain overflows and causes a health hazard or extensive property damage. The Plumbing Doc will get down to the bottom of your drain backup and clear out your pipes quickly and efficiently.
What Causes a Drain Backup?
Drain backups are caused by a variety of different circumstances, and not all of them are preventable. Normal accumulation of minerals or sediment can become encrusted along the inside of your pipe and slowly close off the usable space. Other foreign materials like food waste, paper products, and disposable wipes won’t break down in your system and can become lodged. Particularly in our climate, tree roots can invade your pipes in search of moisture and nutrients.
Warning Signs that Your Drain is Clogged
Watch out for the following signs of tree root invasion:
- Multiple fixtures backing up at once, including the sinks, toilets, bathtubs, or showers
- Water comes up in the bathtub when you flush the toilet
- Gurgling sounds coming from your drains
- Foul sewer smell in or around your property
- Puddles of water or lush spots in your lawn
If your sink begins to drain slowly, it can be easy to ignore at first. You may even brush it off as a simple clog that’s easily solved with DIY techniques. Regardless of the type of clog, make sure to call the professionals at the Plumbing Doc to take care of the problem for you.
