Some things in life are just unpleasant. This is a fact that everyone comes to face eventually. Thankfully, when bad things happen, there are usually great people who are ready and willing to help make things better. Aren’t you thankful for plumbers? When the toilet backs up, and will not respond to your efforts with the plunger, it is a relief to know you can call Roto-Rooter and we will come to flush your troubles away.
You know you are in for an unhappy day when you walk in the kitchen and find water spilling from the sink onto the floor. Rather than going down the drain as it is supposed to, the water from the dishwasher fills up the sink and overflows onto your hardwood floor. You may immediately jump in to action at the sight of water on the floor. However, if you are unsure of what to do, you will first want to turn off the dishwasher. Then, you need to run for the toilet plunger and begin plunging the drain. If this doesn’t work, but water is draining slightly, you can pour in liquid drain cleaner. This is more effective on a slow draining sink than one that is completely clogged.
Keep in mind that overusing drain cleaning products is bad for your pipes and can weaken them. When the pipes are cleared out, use an enzyme product to keep them flowing freely. Enzymes eat up the food particles and other debris left in your pipe that can cause obstructions.
After trying a plunger and drain cleaner, if the clog is still present, you may want to try a pipe snake. These are typically twenty-five to fifty feet long and are helpful for stubborn clogs. Unfortunately, if the clog is beyond the reach of the pipe snake, you should call the plumbers at Roto-Rooter. We have all the tools necessary to rid your pipes of any clogs. The price will be reasonable and you will be rid of your headache. You may wonder why you got that clog in the first place. Do you have a food disposal? Improper use can make big problems in the sewer system. It is important to run the water the whole time the disposer is on. It also needs to run until it is completely cleared out. Things like orange peelings and potato skins go in the garbage can, not the disposal. Pouring grease down the sink will also cause problems when it binds with particles, so put it in the trash instead.
