Why Do My Drains Keep Backing Up?

drains backing upIf you’ve encountered problems with backed up drains in the past, then you know just how detrimental and annoying a problem this can be. Unfortunately, a lot of homeowners don’t really take the appropriate steps in ensuring that the cause of the block drains is resolved. Instead, they choose to treat the symptoms of the problem, oftentimes with ineffective methods such as over the counter drain cleaners. We must advise you against this type of action. Instead, we recommend that you schedule professional drain services in O’Fallon, IL with a member of our staff. We’ll get to the root of the problem, and we will resolve it successfully for lasting results.

There are many reasons as to why your drains may back up frequently. Simply pouring a cleaner down your drains is not enough to resolve most of them. That is why we recommend working with our team, as we have the tools and products that we need to ensure that your drains are returned to prime functionality.

Solid Blockages are among the most common causes of backed up drains. Hair, personal hygiene products, and other materials that really should not be flushed down the toilet or drains can eventually build up and cause such blockages. By scheduling service with a member of our staff, such blockages can be pinpointed in location and removed in their entirety.

Tree roots are another common cause of backed up drains, believe it or not. The roots of trees will naturally seek out water, including that in your sewer line. They are strong enough to infiltrate your pipes, and can really cause serious blockages in doing so. Services like hydro-jetting can help to get those roots out of your system.

Damaged pipes can also lead to blocked drains. If your pipe is pinched off due to structural damage, it won’t allow water to flow freely through the drainage system. We can evaluate your pipes, and can repair or replace them as needed.
