Drainage is a critical part of your home’s plumbing system. It’s responsible for the efficient removal of wastewater from your property and dumps it into the sewer or drainage system exiting your home. However, if there’s a problem with your drains, it can cause flooding, water contamination, unpleasant smells, health complications, or even compromise the structural integrity of your home. When that happens, you need a professional drain cleaning service to protect you from bigger issues.
At bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of San Antonio we take pride in offering quality drain services. Whether it’s a small clog in your bathroom or something more complex like a break in your main sewage line, our team of trained plumbers has you covered.
Below are some of the services you can expect from us.
Floor Drain Cleaning
Utility rooms, patios and basements often feature some of the frequently used plumbing fixtures. Consequently, waste and sediment can collect in these areas and create clogs that will slow down the water flow. If your floor drain fails to work, the wastewater may pool or flood your residence.
Our specialists will help you to resolve any floor drain problem in your home. We will first identify the clog’s location and then flush it out using the hydro-jetting technique. We’ll also give you maintenance tips that will help prevent floor drain clogs in the future.
Kitchen Drain Cleaning
Dirt and debris such as fats, greases, detergents and soap may build up and eventually block your kitchen drain. The result is a slow drain, gurgling noises and foul odors in the pipes. Some homeowners might try resolving the problem by pouring hot water into the sink. However, hot water can damage the joints of PVC pipe and cause cracks on your porcelain bowl.
However, you need to seek professional help before the problem escalates into a full-blown disaster. Our plumber will identify the root cause of the problem, use safe methods to clear out the debris and restore your sink drain to its peak performance.
Bathroom Drain Cleaning
Bathrooms can present a host of drainage challenges. Soap scum, pet fur, shampoo, hair, toothpaste and other grime can collect and clog the bathtub drain. Worse still, if non-flushable materials such as diapers, cotton balls, dental floss and sanitary products find their way into your toilet, they can cause a serious blockage. You can tell you have a clogged drain if you experience the following:
- The toilet doesn’t flush properly
- Water backs up to your sink, bathtub and shower
- Slow drainage
- Awful smells coming from the drains
- Pools of water on the floor near the sink, bathtub and shower
A clogged drain can be difficult to deal with since you may not know precisely where the problem is. However, professionals rely on non-invasive methods like video cameras to inspect pipes and locate the clog. They also use a drain snake to remove the clog, and in a few hours, your bathroom will be clean and ready for use once again.
Roof Drain Cleaning
Most people ignore their roof drains until a disaster strikes. However, it’s worth noting that leaves and other debris are blown onto your roof every day and may end up clogging it. The blockage may obstruct the flow of rainwater, directing the water into the attic of the house. Overtime, your roof may lose its strength to hold the excess water and collapse. Therefore, it’s upon you to schedule regular roof drain cleaning and maintenance to catch such problems early enough.
Outdoor Drain Cleaning
Outdoor drains are meant to keep water off your asphalt and away from your home. So if you’ve noticed stagnant water in your yard after a rainstorm, it means you have a clogged outdoor drain. But, unlike indoor drains that get clogged with waste, food and toilet papers, the culprits of your outdoor drain are leaves, mud, roots, burrowing nests, etc.
If left unattended, such flooding can seriously ruin your landscape or seep into the base of your house, leading to water damage, rot, mold and mildew growth, among other problems. Expert plumbers can help unclog your drains in good time to prevent further damages to your plumbing system and property.
Importance of Professional Drain Cleaning
If you’re experiencing slow drains, backups, or other drainage problems, you may want to call a plumber. Here are a few benefits you’ll realize when working with a drain cleaning professional.
- Saves Money and Time
If you conduct routine maintenance, you’re less likely to encounter major issues in the future. That will save you the money you’d have spent to repair damages caused by drain failures. And instead of spending time supervising the repairs, you’ll be doing other constructive things.
- Eliminates Odor
When your drains fail, there’s a likelihood that your house will be filled with awful odors from the sewage system. Cleaning drains gets rid of the organic elements that emanate the nasty smells from your pipes.
- Protects Your Walls and Floors from Damage
The excess water from blocked sinks and toilets can overflow onto your floors and walls. If the water stays in these areas for long, it may end up causing great damages to your property. The overflowing water may seep under your tiles and impair your plaster and wallpapers. However, if you hire an experienced San Antonio, TX, plumber early enough, none of these will happen. Timely cleaning of your drains will ensure your walls and floors remain intact and robust.
- Keeps Your Family Healthy
If left unattended for long, clogs can create an ideal environment for bacteria and mold growth. These organisms can cause infections, severe breathing difficulties, and other health-related problems. However, when your drain is properly cleaned, you and your family’s health will never be endangered.
- Keeps Your Drainage Pipes Healthy
Grease, chemicals, and other debris can build up in your pipes over time and lead to corrosion and leaks. While small leaks can be fixed with ease, major ones can be a nightmare. However, this won’t be a point of concern if you clean your drains occasionally. Well-maintained pipes can last for many years without needing a replacement.
