Monroe Drain Cleaning
You most likely have clogs or want to learn more about them if you’re here. We can assist you if your residence is completely clogged, whether it’s in your sink, toilet, or both. One of the most urgent problems to fix, right up there with summertime AC failure, is clogged drains. You might not be able to wash your hands, go to the restroom, take a shower, do the dishes, or even use the sink. Grease in the sink, “flushable wipes,” tampons, roots, sagging pipes, hair, and occasionally even children’s toys are other potential causes of clogs. Call us, your 24-hour plumber, if you have an emergency since we have plumbers on call and ready to take your call.
Your sewer pipes are negatively impacted by grease on a major scale. more so when disposed of in a septic tank. As grease is poured down your drain, it will congregate in the p-traps and along the bottom of the pipe, hardening and making it more difficult for solids to flow by. This obstruction results in the requirement for cleaning. If grease buildup in a line is severe enough, replacing it can be the only option to get it clean. Anti-grease soap can also be used in conjunction with hot water to clean the drain. It is melted by the water and washed away with the aid of the soap. Septic tanks, on the other hand, are unique. It’s still likely that grease will collect in your pipes and p-traps. Your septic tank may have a standstill when this material hardens and prevents the drain from working. Your drain fills, which cannot always be cleaned by a machine, will occasionally become contaminated as well. As a result, you will need to personally dig them up, which could cost thousands in repairs. Never pour grease down the line of a septic tank, it is advised. Grease is one of the main causes of the numerous septic tank issues that Monroe, North Carolina, is plagued with.
Another major issue is flushable wipes. Despite being technically flushable, they are one of the most typical causes of drain problems. When someone sees the word “flushable” on a package, they might not realize that it refers to the fact that these items are not broken down in the sewage system like toilet paper. As they stick to pipe bends, obstacles develop that inevitably require you to call us. Another contributing to the problem are tampons. They are extremely easy to block your toilet with when flushed down the toilet. In that they will stick to obstacles and accumulate, these are comparable to “flushable wipes.”
Hair, buildup, and other obstructions can clog sinks, which are generally not too difficult to unclog. By using a hair snake to remove most clogs from the drain, this problem can be solved. We would have to unclog the p-trap and clear the obstruction inside if we were called out. You need to be a licensed plumber to perform this kind of work, or you must be an employee of one. The escaping sewer gases, which are hazardous to breathe in, need the pulling of a permit. If the p-trap were to be removed without the guidance of a plumber, you might be at risk since it acts as a water barrier that shields you from sewer gas.
We utilize a toilet auger, which has a cable on the end that is around 6 feet long and long enough to get past the toilet and hit anything in the way, for bigger problems like a clogged toilet. We need to utilize a drain equipment that weighs 150 pounds or more for larger problems, such your entire house being clogged. We can either open up your highest fixture, such as a toilet or roof vent, or we will perform a cleanout in the yard to clean the line. Roots or a belly (sagging pipe) in your main sewer line may be the cause of your mainline’s frequent clogs. If you want to permanently solve the problem, you must fix these problems. The only way to get rid of the roots or fix the sag is to dig up the pipe and fix it.
A belly happens when a section of dirt was improperly tamped, causing the pipe to sag. This occurs when your sewer line is improperly “bedded” in the dirt. The dirt sagged essentially because it never fully cemented. As a result, the pipe might sag along with the ground above it without any support. If not done correctly, a belly could develop the day after installation. The majority of home owners are unaware of and typically don’t care about what occurs in the sewer system. To make sure the pipes aren’t drooping and that there aren’t any roots in the line, we advise videoing a line that has frequently clogged after we clean it. You’ll undoubtedly save time and money if you take care of the problem straight once rather than having to clean it repeatedly. It typically means replacing the pipe part that is sagging.
As sewage seeps into the ground through a small hole, roots start to sprout. When plants become aware of the nutrient-rich water, they will start to grow in the direction the water is coming from. Even a small root that gets through will start to enlarge and grow larger as it feeds off of your sewage, much like a flame on gasoline. Up till you fix that portion, it won’t stop expanding. Until there is absolutely no room left for anything to move through, roots will completely encircle a pipe. In these circumstances, each time a drain is opened by a machine. Only a short-term passage is made by it. This size of root causes rapid root growth. If you’re going to do it, do it correctly, is a maxim in the plumbing industry.
Sewer Camera Inspection
The majority of you don’t want to have the opportunity to glimpse the inside of your pipes. Finding out if your line has any roots, bellys, or breaks requires a sewer inspection, which is the simplest method. If the line is clogged, we must clear it first in order to gain access. Using our cutting-edge finding tool, which tells us how deep the line is, if we discover an impediment, we will pinpoint the area. We can easily locate any sewer obstruction with the use of this apparatus. Or, if you purchase our Superior Service Agreement, you’ll receive an annual inspection for free!
A sewage jetter is a high-pressure hose with a working pressure of 3000 to 5000 psi that is inserted into the sewer line and may clear any obstruction. It can go past even the most difficult barrier with this much pressure. For lines that require thorough cleaning and don’t have roots encroaching, jetters are dispatched. Even when they effectively cut through them, they nonetheless soon regrow. So instead of doing a proper repair, you’re wasting money on a fix. Commercial plumbing applications can benefit greatly from the use of jetters. The greatest option for clearing up the buildup in your pipework is a jetter, especially in restaurants with grease-filled lines to factories and mills. Results will be available immediately after a semi-quick process.

Causes: The most common culprits are grease poured down the kitchen sink drain as well as food particles, hair in the shower drain, soap, etc. All of these things can get stuck on the side of the drain pipe and clog it, which can lead to some serious problems. This is why, whenever you notice that the water is not draining as fast as it used to or it’s backing up, you will have to call a drain contractor. You can hire one from our company and get your drains clean within a short amount of time.
If the issue is only a clog then we can knock it out within an hour, at most two hours.
