What’s causing your blocked drain?

Unattended drain clogs can transform your relaxing shower into a wading pool. Be sure to address your drain issues before your water rises. 

Whether you’re dealing with a buildup of debris or tree roots invading your sewer line, a plumber in Gaithersburg, MD will open your blocked drain, which can be caused by the following:

  • Broken cleanouts: Your stubborn blockage or unexpected drainage backup could be an issue with your cleanout. If the cap is broken, replacing it’s usually an easy fix. However, repairing deeper issues like damaged pipes requires professional help.
  • Cracks: Have you noticed a lingering smell coming from your drains? It could be more than just food residue. It might mean there are cracks in your pipes, which are obstructing the free flow of water and debris. These blockages often lead to slow draining and unpleasant odors. 
  • Flat or bellied lines: As the soil settles around your sewer line, wastewater can build up and cause issues. To identify problems early, it’s important to have an expert inspect the grade of your sewer line for improper installation or eroding dirt surrounding your pipes.
  • Mineral buildup: Gaithersburg homes access hard water. That means your tap is laden with minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron that build up over time and can impede water flowing through your pipes.
  • Obstructions: Grease accumulation and objects dropped down your drain can cause major plumbing headaches. Our rooter service will take care of these obstructions fast. 
  • Tree root growth: When your drains are blocked, it could mean pesky tree roots are taking over your sewer line. Our sewer camera inspection in Gaithersburg will help you get to the core of the issue.

Do I need a Gaithersburg drain cleaning or drain clearing? 

When your backed-up drains start interfering with your day, our Gaithersburg drain cleaning and clearing services will eliminate the clog and your headache. Both services improve your drainage functionality, yet they employ different methods depending on the extent of your problem.

Drain Clearing (i.e., snaking)

Drain clearing helps restore normal water flow but often leaves clog remnants behind. These remnants could adhere to your pipes’ edges, making you more likely to experience clogs in the future. As a result, drain clearing is often only a temporary solution for clogged pipes.

Our powerful snaking tool quickly whirs away any clogs blocking your pipes, allowing water to flow freely again. However, this is sometimes only a temporary solution because clog remnants could remain lodged against the edges of your lines. 

Drain Cleaning (i.e., hydro jetting)

With effective drain cleaning in Gaithersburg, MD, you can make sure your pipes are free of debris and clogs. 

Hydro jetting uses pressurized water to remove debris, such as grease or tree roots, that can’t simply be snaked. Hydro jetting will solve your current issues and help prevent future blockages for a long-term solution that will save you both time and expenses.
