Every house is in need of drain pipe repair at some point of its life. If this unfortunate moment happened while you live in it, it is important to catch the problem as early as possible.
Many people keep procrastinating and end up ordering much costlier drain pipe repairs from sewer and drain cleaning contractors. Moreover, clogged drain pipes cause flooding in their homes, spoiling carpets and floors and causing repairs that are more like renovation projects. And if sewer line backup happens, they end up cleaning sewage from their basements.
If your drain line is clogged, you will most likely experience some signs before you have any major issues. You may notice noises coming from your drains, drains that work much slower than usual, and the odor of sewage in your house. If you notice these issues, it is very important that you find a certified plumber to address the problem as soon as possible.
If your drain line is clogged, there are a number of possible causes. One issue that can cause your drain line to become clogged is tree roots obstructing the drain pipe. Other issues include faulty plumbing, flushing things that should not be flushed down the toilets or sinks, and the collapse of your sewer line.
Sometimes a sewer gets backed up because tree roots block the drain pipe. If your sewer pipe has any sort of crack or breakage, even slight, tree roots can grow in the drain pipe causing backups and blockages.
Older drain pipes that are made of clay are more susceptible to damage caused by tree roots. Plumbers working on new homes usually use PVC sewer pipe in order to avoid this particular issue.
If your home has sewer or drain back up issues caused by tree roots that block your drain pipe, you will need to call a plumber. Most plumbers offer sewer clean and pipe repair services to help remove the tree roots and unblock your pipe.
Plumbers who provide sewer clean out and pipe repair services will often decide that the best way to fix issues is to snake out your main drain. You main drain is the pipe that transports the sewage from your home into the city of Toronto’s sewer system. Any time you flush or water goes down the drain, it goes through the main drain. Snaking out the main drain can be a preventative measure that you use before you encounter a problem with sewer backup, or it can be used to fix an existing problem. The snake, or auger, is a long, heavy tube designed to break up clogs in your drain. You can use a snake yourself, but it is extremely heavy and difficult.
It is best to call a licensed plumber to take care of your drain snaking needs.
