Drain Cleaning & Plumbing Repairs in Las Vegas
One of the most common jobs completed by a licensed plumber is the cleaning of a drain. Modern drain cleaning is quite similar to old-fashioned methods. The process is the same and involves clearing the clog and cleaning the drain to enable the water to flow freely.
Types of Drain Problems Requiring Professional Cleaning
Some types of drain clogs are more common than others, depending on the habits of the people living within the home. Here is a look at the most common types of drain clogs.
Shower and tub drains
The buildup in the drains connected to the shower and/or tub is generally a combination of hair, shampoo, conditioner, and soap.
In addition to toilet paper, quite a few things end up in the toilet that shouldn’t. They can cause clogs that prevent the toilet from flushing properly.
Clogs are often created when buildup occurs in the sink pipes and drains. Toothpaste, soap, cosmetics, lotions, and dirt that aren’t properly rinsed through the pipes clings to them, causing a clog that backs up the sink. Liquid hand soaps add to the problem since they are rarely fully dissolved before being washed down the drain.
As dish soap, cooking oils, grease, fats, and food particles build up in the kitchen drain pipe, the water begins to run more slowly until it completely stops.
Downspouts can become clogged by leaves and other types of debris. When the downspout is connected to underground pipes, the clog can be difficult to get to and clean out. If it isn’t taken care of, water from the roof won’t be able to drain through the downspout.
Typically located in garages, basements, and laundry rooms, floor drains often become clogged by dirt and debris. Quite often, it is the drain trap that becomes clogged and needs cleaning.
