Signs You Need Drain Repair
When most people hear the word "drain" they think of the drain opening in a sink or shower. In professional plumbing terms, the word "drain" applies not only to the drain’s mouth, but also to the pipe. The vast majority of drain problems occur in the pipe where they are unseen, so it is important to know the signs that it is time to call us for drain repair:
- Multiple drains are slow or clogged at the same time – When multiple drains are slow or clogged at the same time, this is usually an indication that there’s a block deep in the plumbing system. Trained experts know how to tackle these kinds of challenging issues and repair them so they don’t repeat.
- You keep getting the same clog over and over – A repetitive clog usually means two things: first, whatever is causing the clog isn’t being properly repaired, and second, the blockage is likely far down into your system. Our pros can make sure your repetitive clogs go away for good.
- Your drains have a pungent foul odor – do you smell a foul odor coming from one of your drains despite fastidious cleaning? It is likely there is build–up in the drain causing the odor, and this is usually seen in kitchen sinks where food particles and fats, oils, and grease (FOG) have been poured down the drain.
Why You Should Never Use Chemical Drain Cleaners to Clear a Drain
One of the biggest reasons to call for drain repair is in relation to a clog. However, it can be tempting to try and clear a clog yourself with what seems to be an effective remedy: over–the–counter drain cleaners. The key words in the previous sentence is "seems" because the truth is that chemical drain cleaners rarely do the job you expect them to, and worse, they are so caustic that they can burn through your existing plumbing pipes. And that burning isn’t easily washed away. Many chemical drain cleaners come in a gel form, and this gel can stick to the inside of your home’s pipes for weeks, giving it ample opportunity to eat at the pipe itself.
You can avoid these kinds of problems and have your clogged drain repaired quickly and safely simply by giving the plumbing pros at Cooling Unlimited, Inc. a call. We offer excellent plumbing service in Boston, MA.
