When to Call a Plumber to Unclog a Drain?

If you're facing a stubborn clog that just won't budge, you've come to the right place. A clogged drain can be a frustrating and inconvenient problem, but fear not, our team of skilled plumbers at Zoom Drain of Orange County are here to help.

Common Drain Issues

  • Stubborn Clogs: If you've tried using a plunger or a drain cleaner without success, it's a sign that the clog might be more serious and requires professional attention.
  • Multiple Clogged Fixtures: If you notice that multiple drains in your home are clogged simultaneously, such as sinks, showers, or toilets, it could indicate a more significant issue in your plumbing system.
  • Persistent Odors: Foul smells coming from your drains can be a sign of a clog. The accumulation of debris, food particles, hair, or other substances in the pipes can lead to unpleasant odors.
  • Slow Draining: If water is draining slowly from your sink, bathtub, or shower, it's usually an indication of a partial clog. While you may be able to improve the situation temporarily with DIY methods, a plumber can identify the underlying cause and provide a long-term solution.
  • Backed-Up Water: The most obvious sign that you need a plumber is when water starts to back up in your sink, shower, or toilet. This indicates a severe clog that requires immediate attention.
  • Preventive Maintenance: Even if you don't have a current clog, it's a good idea to have your drains inspected and cleaned periodically. A professional plumber can perform routine maintenance to ensure your drains are clear and prevent potential issues before they become major problems.

Zoom Drain of Orange County is dedicated to ensuring your satisfaction and resolving your drain-related issues effectively. Our experienced plumbers have the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to tackle even the toughest clogs.

We Clean Irvine's Basement Drains

If water is pooling in your basement, a clogging basement drain could be the culprit. First, check your drain trap to see if that is the source of the clog. In some cases, you may be able to dislodge and vacuum out a basement drain if the problem is minor. If you cannot dislodge the blockage, or the issue appears to be deeper in the pipes, you need a professional.

Expert Storm Drain Cleaning Services

Are the storm drains on your property functioning? If not, you risk flooding during the rainy season. Keep your foundation protected. Our drain cleaning team can inspect your storm drain to find the source of the problem.

Fast & Effective Sink Drain Cleaning

Is your sink slow draining or stopped up? Our specialists can help. We have the equipment to get your drain running, even for the most intense blockages.

Toilet Drain Cleaning for Stubborn Clogs

You can resolve most toilet clogs with a household plunger. If a household plunger cannot resolve the issue, you can try a household auger if you own one. If the clog persists, our team can inspect your toilet and disconnect it if necessary to find out what the issue is.

Keeping Utility Drains & Laundry Drains Clear

Some people recommend using harsh chemicals to clear out laundry or utility drains. We do not recommend them. Steer clear of strong chemical products. They are very toxic and can damage your pipes from overuse. Instead, schedule drain cleaning professionals in Irvine to remove a stubborn utility drain clog.

Specialized Sewer Main Drain Cleaning

The first step for clearing out a main drain is locating and accessing the "clean-out". Many homes have a sewer "clean-out" access point that allows one easy access to the sewer system. If you home does not have one, you may want to consider getting one installed. Clean-out or no, our drain specialists can inspect your system. We can also snake your main drain to getting it flowing again.

How to Avoid Clogged Drains

No one likes dealing with clogged drains, especially when the gunk and debris that's preventing your water from flowing freely needs to be removed manually. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to keep your drains from clogging and ensure that water is moving smoothly.

If you want to avoid clogged drains, we recommend following these tips:

  • Tip #1: Use a Drain Cover. One of the simplest steps you can take to prevent clogs is to use a drain cover in your sink or bathtub. These covers are designed to catch hair, food particles, and other debris before the have the chance to make their way into your pipes. Simply remove the cover and clean it regularly to prevent buildup.
  • Tip #2: Avoid Pouring Grease Down the Drain. It might be tempting to rinse cooking grease down the drain, but pouring grease down your drain is one of the most common causes of clogs. Over time, the grease can solidify and create a blockage, preventing water from flowing through. Instead, let the grease solidify in a container and then dispose of it in the trash.
  • Tip #3: Be Careful What You Flush Down Your Toilet. Your toilet doesn't have a drain so it shouldn't matter what you flush, right? Well - not quite. Like any other sink or shower drain, your toilet can get clogged, too. So, be careful what you flush. Only flush toilet paper and human waste down the toilet. Items like feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, flushable wipes, and dental floss can cause clogs. Over time, this can severely damage your drain and sewer line.
  • Tip #4: Avoid Placing Starchy Items in the Drain. Pasta, potatoes, and other starchy foods can expand in water and create a blockage in your pipes. Avoid placing these items in your garbage disposal or running them down the drain to keep things flowing smoothly.
  • Tip #5: Schedule Regular Drain Cleanings. Finally, one of the most effective ways to prevent clogs is to schedule regular drain cleanings with our professional drain plumber. We can use high-pressure water jetting or other methods to remove buildup and debris from your pipes, which can reduce the likelihood of clogs occurring.

Clogged drains are a hassle that can be avoided through simple preventative measures. Taking these steps can help you avoid costly drain and sewer repairs and keep your home's plumbing in top condition.
