Causes of Blocked Drains
Clogs can happen in the drain or anywhere in the sewer line. The drains are under constant pressure to carry away wastewater and anything else that is put down the drain. Whether you have a clog in the kitchen sink, toilet, bathtub, or the main sewer line, we offer Lancaster drain cleaning services to help solve the problem and get your drain running again.
We are equipped to remove clogs caused by:
- Food scraps
- Mineral buildup
- Toilet paper
- Grease or oil
- Objects dropped into the drain
- Tree roots
If only one drain is slow or blocked, the clog is generally found in that drain. However, if the drains in different areas of your home are clogged, backed up, or you have problems with recurring clogs or slow drains throughout the house, the problem may be in the main sewer line.
Safe & Effective Drain Cleaning
Clogs can be caused by a wide variety of different materials, debris, and foreign objects. We utilize a variety of tools and technology to find and eliminate clogs in any drain in your home or the main sewer line. Every method is not effective for every clog, so our technicians start by assessing the cause of the clog and where the pipe is clogged. Based on this information, we will use the most efficient method for clearing each type of clog.
Our technicians are equipped with the right tools for effective drain cleaning in Lancaster, including drain snaking and hydro jetting. We will evaluate your needs, explain the problem that we find, and determine the best tools to get the clog out and keep it from coming back again.
Drain Maintenance to Prevent Clogs
While you should never use chemical drain cleaners with harsh and corrosive chemicals, there are a few products that are safe and effective for preventing clogs. Bio-Clean contains natural bacteria and enzymes that safely and efficiently dissolve organic waste into water and mineral ash, which can be safely washed out of the system.
Bio-Clean works to remove organic materials, such as:
- Food particles
- Paper materials
Root intrusion is another serious problem with blockages in sewer lines. The tree roots are attracted to the moisture and grow into the line until they break the pipe. Root-X is safe and effective for killing the roots without causing harm to sewer pipes, septic systems, or vegetation that is growing above ground. We are happy to recommend the safest and most efficient ways to clear your drains and keep them flowing.
