Signs You Need Clogged Drain Repair in Your Carbon, Lehigh, or Northampton County Home

While a complete clog will make itself obvious, scheduling clogged drain repair now can help prevent a total drain shutdown. If you know what to look for, you can make your life easier down the line. Here are a few signs you need repair for a clogged drain:

  • Your drain is producing a strange smell. Most drains are used to keep things clean. Smelly odors don’t help with that. If you smell something unpleasant, it probably means there’s a buildup of sewer gas or general waste in your drains. Yuck!
  • Your drains move slowly. Your drains are probably moving slowly because there’s a lot of stuff blocking your water from flowing freely. This could include grease, soap, hair, and other unsettling materials.
  • You hear a lot of gurgling. If your drains are gurgling a lot, this means you need to call for clogged drain repair ASAP.
  • Multiple drains in your home are clogged. One clogged drain is an issue, but more than one? This could indicate a main sewer clog, which is a much more serious repair. Call Team Andreas for help today!

FAQs

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about clogged drains in Carbon County and eastern Pennsylvania include:

Can I unclog my own drain?

Sometimes, but you need to know your limits. Don’t use a drain snake or wires; they can damage your fixtures, sink/toilet, or the drain itself. Try a plunger first. You can also use natural (never chemical) drain cleaners: Pour boiling water down the drain, then add 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of vinegar. Wait 5–10 minutes, then add more hot water.

Our plumbing pros use a camera and hydro jetting for difficult clogs. We’re also experienced in sewer line repair and replacement.

How do plumbers unclog drains?

We use a high-pressure hydro jet to blast a clog free. (This usually takes only a few minutes.) If more than one drain is running slow or clogging, you may have a sewer line clog. We’ll use a camera to locate the problem area and then, depending on the cause, use mechanical methods to break it loose.

Why do I have a sewer line clog? I never flush things that cause clogs.

Clogged external sewer lines are probably not your fault. Every six minutes, an underground line is damaged, usually because a property owner or worker didn’t know the location of the lines. You may have damaged sewer lines due to:

  • Age
  • Tree roots
  • Utility work

Will trying to unclog my drain harm my pipes?

If you use caustic chemicals, you can permanently damage pipes made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Chemicals can also damage older metal plumbing pipes. If misused, snakes (drain augers) can damage your plumbing pipes or even make a bad clog worse. Our advice? Don’t risk making a bad situation worse; know when to call a professional.
