The cost to unclog a drain near Atlanta is around $250 on average. Depending on the type of clog it will range between $99 but could be more what is clogged. When water starts backing up and Drano won’t get your drain unclogged it’s time to call a licensed plumber.
The plunger is a great tool for removing clogs, but it can make the problem worse if you don’t have experience with this type of situation. Instead try creating an air seal around your bowl and slowly push down on top before pulling back sharply-the suction will help pull out any pieces that are stuck near their location so they fall into place again without having to use too much force!
Drains should be cleaned at least once every 2 years. Stay aware of any changes in your drainage system and consider maintenance to keep them clean and avoid potential problems in the future.
Signs drain cleaning is needed:
- Standing water in the shower or tub
- Frequently clogged toilets
- Multiple clogged drains
- Slow-draining sinks, toilets, tubs, or showers
- Leaks around the base of the toilet
- Drains that make bubbling/gurgling sounds
- Sewage spilling out of outdoor cleanout(s)
Slow-draining sinks, toilets that keep clogging, and standing water in tubs are some of the most common indicators that your drains may need to be professionally cleaned. There are also less obvious signs like gurgling noises and plumbing leaks. If your wondering if you need to schedule a drain or sewer cleaning service our team of plumbers is happy to look over your project and make recommendations.
What causes drains to back up?
A drain backup can be caused by a number of issues in your home; grease, waste, waste paper, and food to name a few. But backups can also be caused by faulty installation of your drainage system, the drain material itself, house settling, age, damage, or other environmental factors.
Should I use a liquid drain cleaner first?
Chemical solvents are not recommended by most professionals for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that they simply don’t work. They can also be dangerous to the homeowner, and later the plumber who will inevitably be called to clear the drain. Many people who want to avoid the use of a toxic drain cleaner will try a DIY natural drain cleaner made from baking soda and vinegar. While there is no harm in trying this method it usually only adds to the build-up and waits to be cleared with the initial clog.
When your main sewer backs up, the changes will be noticeable. You could notice sewer smells in your home, slow-flushing toilets, water backing up into tubs and showers, overflows from smaller fixtures when laundry loads are run, etc. You may even notice water seeping out from below toilets and sewer back up in your basement. No matter how you notice the sewer backup, it is something you’ll want to have addressed quickly for the safety and comfort of your family.
Are there times when a sewer cleaning doesn’t solve the problem?
On rare occasions, the blockage is severe enough that conventional drain cleaning equipment and even water jetting service can’t break through. Usually, this occurs when the sewer line is completely broken between the house and the street. In such cases, TE will inspect your system with sewer camera technology and locate the issue so a permanent sewer line repair can be made.
