Does My Drain Clog Require A Plumber?

November 21, 2023 | Blog

Combat Clogged Drains With Hi-Tech

When a drain is clogged, most homeowners may purchase a simple cleaning solution or use a drain snake to grab debris and hair in their pipes. However, some clog-related issues will require a professional plumber to solve the problem. When you’re in need of drain cleaning services in Edmond, it’s time to contact Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect to get the job done!

Signs You Need Edmond Drain Cleaning Services

When objects are lodged within your pipes, it prevents the natural flow of water in your plumbing system. While DIY methods can occasionally solve this issue, some buildup will require an experienced plumber to remove. Knowing when to contact our professionals can help keep your system in tip-top shape!

Natural Drain Cleaners Aren’t Working

Many store-bought drain cleaners are corrosive and can eat through durable materials. While they do get the job done in terms of temporarily solving blockages, overusing the product can cause more problems later on.

It’s best to avoid these cleaning solutions to prevent damage to your pipes. Using a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda, followed by hot water, can naturally remove blockages without corroding your piping.

If you have already attempted using a natural cleaning solution, but your sink is still not properly draining — contact Hi-Tech for professional plumbing assistance.

You Have Consistent Drain Clogs

Drains can clog for a variety of reasons. However, a consistent obstruction that won’t go away is not normal for your home. A blockage every once in a while is a common occurrence since buildup from debris can form over time.

When a drain is backing up on a weekly to near daily basis, a plumber is needed immediately. A consistent blockage could be a sign of a bigger issue with your plumbing system. Contacting our professionals will ensure your system stays in excellent condition and is protected from severe obstructions.

Sewage Is Backing Up Your Drains

Another sign you need professional plumbing services is a backup in sewage waste. This issue needs to be handled quickly. When sewage waste is making its way into your drains, this means that your sewer line may have a large clog, which will require our professional help to fix the issue.

If your drain smells of sewage buildup and you’re concerned about your piping —do not hesitate to call Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect! Our team is here to make sure that your pipes are working efficiently in your home.

What Causes A Clogged Drain?

Many objects can create an obstruction within your piping. It’s crucial to know what can cause clogs in your system to prevent buildup from forming in the future. A few common causes of pipe blockages are:

  • Hair
  • Oils, fats and grease
  • Baby wipes
  • Food scraps
  • Paper towels and napkins

When these items are properly disposed of, you take the extra step of caring for your plumbing system. You’ll also experience fewer clogs within your pipes!

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
