How to Know When the Drains are Clogged
When the sewer lines in residential and commercial buildings become clogged, there are number of symptoms that can be attributed to these problems. Our team takes the time to identify these problems during our visit on our customer’s property, and these include:
- Odors permeating the home and originate at the drain
- Flooding in the basement, kitchen, or bathrooms
- Sewage backups in the sinks and tubs
- Water in the sinks and bathtubs draining slowly
Slow drainage and standing water will quickly become a hindrance to everyday tasks and if not addressed, the choked flow of wastewater may cause the pipes to burst as a result of the strain and pressure placed on the system.If left unaddressed, raw sewage, wastewater, and other unsanitary materials may back up into the yard or lawn. Our team prepares for these situations and is ready to meet our customer’s requirements when we receive a call for sewer line.
What We Do to Fix Emergency Sewer Pipeline Problems
When we receive a call regarding a pipeline emergency, we have preliminary steps that we take to prevent further property damage. After arriving on your property, if these steps haven’t already been implemented, we will suggest these important steps:
- Turning off the water services to avoid placing more strain on the pipeline system
- Setting down old towels to soak up the excess water
- Evacuating the vicinity of the leak or accident for safety
After we have taken the necessary steps to promote a safe repair environment for reversing the damage, we will begin the cleaning and restorative processes.
How We Clean the Sewer Lines & Remove Clogs at Freedom Plumbers
At Freedom Plumbers, we purposefully avoid using chemical cleaner solutions of any kind. Chemical cleaners only work on minor clogs and are harmful to people and the pipes. Chemical cleaners burn and irritate lungs and skin and add to the degradation of your piping system. Chemicals break down the pipe, making it easier for it to crack, break, and require repairs.
Instead, our technicians use a process called drain snaking to clean drains and remove clogs because it is the best way to clean any piping system. It is very versatile and does not require any digging. Using a highly pressurized stream of water, any clogs or sludge that may cause a clog in the future is blasted out of the system. This is the best solution since it acts as both an effective way to remove even the toughest clogs and it also is preventative. Your pipes will be serving you and working better for longer since any build up that could cause a clog in the near future will be removed. Drain snaking is a longer-term fix that will not harm your pipes. Our technicians go above and beyond and will not only fix your immediate problem but also inspect your pipes to see what is causing the clog. If there is an underlying issue, you will continue to have clogged pipes unless it is addressed.
Even though controllable debris such as grease and hair are sometimes the cause of a clog, there are also many things that could be out of your control. Tree roots can travel over 20 feet in search of nutrients. While on this search, they may pierce your system, causing a clog and a crack that will need to be addressed to stop the clogs from occurring. Old cast iron pipes over time can go through a process called tuberculation where the interior of the pipe breaks down, causing jagged edges that catch on debris that may be passing through. Both of these problems and other issues that are seemingly out of your control should be addressed as soon as possible. If not, pressure may cause the pipes to burst, materials may leak into the ground, possibly contaminating the water table, and other possibly emergency causing situations.
