Bathroom Drain Services
The drains in your bathroom are some of the most important aspects of a healthy home’s plumbing system. While having access to the water that you need is crucial, it’s equally important that your wastewater, also referred to as gray water, is carried away from your home. Unfortunately, there are countless threats to the drains in your bathroom, which facilitates the need for our drain cleaning services.
Whether you have a foreign object jammed in the drain that flows from your toilet, or soap scum has built up along the pipes that go from your shower, Schuler Plumbing can help identify the issue, get it remedied, and restore quality plumbing to your home.
Common Reasons Bathroom Drains Back Up
If water was the only thing that ever made its way into your bathroom drains, you probably wouldn’t need a plumber for bathroom drains. Unfortunately, it’s not. Over the years, our plumbers have seen plenty of bathroom drain clogs, and the most common causes of bathroom drain clogs include items that you put in your drains, and some that you can’t do anything to prevent.
Obviously, toilet paper is one of the most common items found in bathroom drains. Flushing your toilet paper is a common practice and is certainly a great idea for keeping your home clean. However, it’s important that you don’t flush too much toilet paper at one time. Be aware of how much toilet paper you’re using when you use your bathrooms and try to avoid putting large wads of toilet paper down your toilet at one time.
You may be surprised to learn that soap scum isn’t only a problem on the surface of your sinks and showers. The same ingredients that leave an unattractive film on your grout and in your sinks can actually lead to clogs in your drains. Many soaps contain animal fats and other non-soluble materials that can lead to drain clogs. Again, there’s not much you can do to prevent soap scum from forming in your drains, but you can contact us for regular drain cleaning services.
There’s another threat to the drain system that removes water from your bathroom that you can’t do anything about. When wastewater is carried from your bathroom, it goes through a series of pipes that run from the bathroom to your septic tank. Tree roots can break into those underground pipes in your yard, leading to a variety of drain problems in your home.
There are a variety of other substances that pass through your bathroom drains ranging from hair to hygiene products, cat litter, and much more. While you can’t do anything about some of those materials (such as hair), you should be careful to avoid putting some substances into your drains like cat litter. Bathroom drains are prone to clogging, so if you can find a way to reduce some of the substances that enter those drains, you certainly should.
Bathroom Drain Cleaning Services We Offer
Drain cleaning goes far beyond pulling globs of hair out of your shower and tub drains or pouring a bottle of drain cleaner down the drains in your sink or other plumbing fixtures. While those steps can certainly help, our drain cleaning services go much deeper.
For instance, our plumbers can use an industrial-grade snake to retrieve items that have blocked your drains hundreds of feet away from the surface. This is the kind of tool that you probably don’t have in your toolbox. Additionally, hydro jetting is a type of drain cleaning that relies on high-pressure streams of water being blasted into your pipes. Think of it as a form of pressure washing for your plumbing system.
Additionally, our plumbers can use technology to determine the location of a root intrusion in the drainpipes in your yard. Once a tree root intrusion is located, our plumbers can help you decide between repairing the issue or replacing a portion of your plumbing system.
