Wash Away The Worry With Drain Cleaning Services
When it comes to plumbing problems, few are as common as the clogged drain. From stopped-up sinks and sluggish showers to backed-up toilets and overflowing floor drains, clogs can occur just about anywhere. And when they do, they can really put a damper on your day. Clogs can lead to major messes and even structural damage when not attended to, so it’s important to contact a trusted plumber at the first sign of trouble. At LBA, we are here for all of your Kansas City drain cleaning needs.
Common Causes of Clogged Drains
We’ve seen a lot of clogged drains in the 30+ years we’ve spent working in Overland Park, Olathe, Lenexa, Shawnee, Mission, and the surrounding communities throughout Johnson County, Kansas. While there have been a few things that surprised us – including cellphones – we’ve found that most clogged drains are caused by a few common things:
“Flushable” hygiene products
Excess toilet paper
Foreign objects, including toys, jewelry, etc.
Signs of a Clogged Drain
When the water stops flowing completely, you know you have a totally blocked drain. In most cases, though, the problem builds up slowly before finally clogging the drain completely. Pay close attention to these signs and have your drains cleaned at the first sign of trouble:
Drains that flow slower than usual
Water backing up in unusual places when draining, such as water backing up in the tub when you flush your toilet
What to Do When You Have a Clogged Drain
Thinking about reaching for a bottle of chemical drain cleaner? Think again. Those products contain harmful chemicals that are detrimental to your health and cause significant damage to your plumbing pipes. Try pouring baking soda down the drain followed by white vinegar. This causes a chemical reaction that bubbles and fizzes and are often powerful enough to break up clogs. If that doesn’t work, you can try using a plunger – just be prepared for a mess.
