Kitchen Clogs

You really don’t want to smell what’s coming out of your sink when you turn on the faucet. The most common causes of drain clogs in kitchen sinks are grease, oils and fats, as well as food items in garbage disposals.

If you want to keep your pipes clean and make sure that they stay fresh, then never put grease or food down them. Grease is the enemy of any pipe because it sticks so easily on their insides and turns into a sluggish, foul mess in time if not taken care of right away.

Professional plumbing is an effective way to clear clogs. However, if the pipes are full of heavy grease or sludge, our team can recommend a hydro jetter tool for drain clearing. This tool uses high-pressure water to dissolve years of buildup in the pipe and restore functionality with cleanliness from foul odors and rotting organic materials that cause bacterial growths.

Bathroom, Shower, and Tub Clogs

Soap and lotions from your bathroom could lead to a clog in the sink. But there are ways you can avoid this by using hot water after brushing teeth, being mindful of how many products you use at once, and even using smaller amounts of soap products.

If items accidentally fall into a drain line then those items can cause blockages. Drain clearing in these situations is important so be aware of whatever might fall into sinks so that overflow problems can be avoided. Toothpaste caps are the most common item found in drains, but other things such as hair ties or bobby pins could also get stuck down there. If you have a priceless object like jewelry inside your sink this would not be good for it at all – stop using water immediately if anything has fallen inside.

If items fall into the trap, our team can often retrieve them. Proper popup assembly should be installed to protect the drain and capture things before they enter the drain line.

Hair and oily products can cause clogs in showers and tubs. Pressure can be caused by excessive buildup in the line, eventually causing leaks and breaks. Hair should be cleaned from shower drains after showering and a small mesh strainer can help catch hair before going down the drain.

Toilet Clogs and Main Sewer Line Backups

A professional toilet auger will solve the problem when a toilet is clogged but other drains are not affected. If the showers and tubs are backing up or the toilet is bubbling, it indicates a larger issue that a professional should address.

Leaks can be caused by using a plunger with too much force as it weakens seals in the toilet.

Our team will use professional equipment to properly and safely clear the main sewer lines if the main sewer line is backing up. If roots are discovered in the line or it won’t clear, we may need to inspect the lines with a sewer camera to diagnose the cause. Drain clearing is very important in these instances as root damage is almost always progressively destructive.

To remove root intrusion and heavy scale buildup in your drain, hydro jetting may be used. This tool is a cost-effective solution. If the sewer line becomes damaged before you notice it, our camera inspection can view the cause of damage to help us provide permanent solutions for repair or replacement. We offer trenchless technology such as pipelining or pipe bursting that are more affordable than traditional methods like digging up yards and replacing pipes from time to time.

When you hire our team, you are hiring a professional plumbing team, not just a drain cleaner.

A team of experts, we have professionals who cover all aspects of plumbing like gas piping systems, water piping plumbing, and sewer systems. We are committed to providing the best quality of care with service and repairs in the Kansas City Metro and surrounding area.
