When Should You Call a Plumber?
If your kitchen sink, toilet, bathtub, bathroom sink, or shower pan is not draining water correctly, you may have a pipe problem. Do not rush to the store to buy strong chemical drain cleaners. While this may seem like an easy fix, those caustic chemicals can scour and corrode your pipes, doing more harm than good.
Call Lake Cook Plumbing for drain services if:
- Your drains are working slowly
- Your drains are not working at all
- There is a foul smell coming from your drain
- You notice sewage backup coming from a drain
A clogged drain can become a health hazard and make your bathroom or kitchen fixtures unusable. It is best to get the problem fixed swiftly to avoid bigger, more expensive plumbing emergencies in the future.
What Causes Drain Clogs?
Almost any substantial matter can clog a drain, but some of the more common culprits are as follows:
- Soap scum
- Starchy foods like rice and potatoes
- Excessive toilet paper
- Thicker papers such as paper towels
Your problem may not just be a clog. Sometimes, pipes are infiltrated by tree roots. Trees are naturally drawn to the moisture, oxygen, and nutrients inside your plumbing. In addition, broken or corroded pipes may cause a backup that affects your drains.
Obliterating Pipe Blockages Since 1954
After we locate your plumbing problem using our video technology, we can use a plumber’s auger to break up the clog. If this method is not effective, we may also suggest a hydro-jetting treatment.
