Watch for Signs of a Clogged Drain

The key to minimizing the damage caused by a clogged drain is catching the problem as early as you can by watching for warning signs. The truth is most drainage problems start slowly and subtly, making it difficult to spot them.

Our drain cleaning technicians from Zoom Drain of Lehigh Valley can arrange to be at your home as soon as possible to prevent further problems or need for repairs because of a clogged or dirty drain.

Tips for DIY Sewer Maintenance

For the best possible results, schedule professional sewer cleaning in Allentown on a regular basis. This will ensure your sewer drains are free and clear, and our sewer specialists can spot any potential problems, such as tree root infiltration, before they cause major trouble.

However, if you want to be proactive in keeping your sewer drains clean and clear, enzyme cleaners are an excellent option. Enzyme cleaners rely on a biological reaction, safely and effectively dissolving any buildup inside your drains. We offer our ZOOM DRAIN Bio™ for just this purpose. Citrus-based degreasers, like our CitraJet®, are also great for breaking up fats, oils, and grease within a sewer drain. Both enzyme and citrus-based drain cleaners are safer, better alternatives to the corrosive chemical cleaners found in many stores.

How We Eliminate Tough Drain Clogs

Not every drain clog is the same, of course, so why would we use cookie-cutter methods to eliminate them? A cornerstone of our business model is customizing our services for each and every customer. When we arrive onsite to evaluate your clogged drain, our Allentown drain specialists will discuss the best cleaning option based on what we find and your budget.

Three of our most common drain cleaning methods are:

  • PowerSnake: For most clogs, the PowerSnake is enough to break them apart. Our drain clearing technicians feed the PowerSnake down the clogged drain until the clog is reached. At that point, the tool’s bladed head is manipulated to break apart the clog with ease.
  • ZOOM Jetting®: Particularly difficult clogs can resist the PowerSnake’s strength. Grease, tree roots, and thick grime may require us to use our ZOOM Jetting® technology, which blasts apart clogs with high-pressure water. The system simultaneously scrubs clean the inside of the clogged pipe, ensuring an even cleaner stretch of piping.
  • ZOOM DRAIN Bio™: After a drain is cleaned and cleared of any clogs, we recommend using ZOOM DRAIN Bio™ to help prevent any further issues. This product is made of eco-friendly substances that naturally disintegrate most organic compounds that can start forming a clog, such as hair, food waste, and grease.

Household Culprits That Commonly Clog Drains

You can’t always stop a drain from clogging. But with a little more care about what you put down your Allentown home’s sinks and drains, you can drastically reduce the chances of a bad clog forming.

Remember this quick list of common items that should never be put down the drain:

  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Sticky starches like most pasta
  • Stringy vegetables
  • Grease and oil, including cooking byproducts
  • Hair, especially longer strands
  • Menstrual hygiene products
  • Food wrappers and plastic

Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Services

Can chemical cleaners damage my pipes?

Yes! The chemical reactions caused by drain cleaning products can damage drain and sewer pipes and even cause older pipes to break.

Should I have my sewer line inspected?

If your home is over 20 years old, it is generally a good idea to have the sewer line inspected. If you have tree roots near your sewer line, you may need to have it inspected every few years.

What are the warning signs of a clogged drain?

Giveaways of clogs in your drains and plumbing system are:
  • Sink, toilet, or shower gurgles when in use
  • Foul odors permeate around drains or sinks
  • Water flow is restricted when using an outlet or faucet
  • Toilet clogs frequently
  • Puddles or water damage near plumbing fixtures
  • Water drains incredibly slowly as it flows into pipes

What if I'm having trouble with multiple drains at once?

If multiple drains in your home are all backed up at the same time, this likely means you have a clog deep in your main line. You may also notice foul odors coming out of multiple drains.

What is a plumbing cleanout?

A plumbing cleanout is where your sewer line can be easily accessed. Finding the location of the cleanout is necessary when there is a clog in your main sewer line.

Why are tree roots in my sewer line?

Tree roots end up in sewer lines because they are attracted to the presence of moisture. Anytime trees are located on a property near a sewer line, their roots will likely need to be cleaned from the sewer line eventually.
