Clogged drains and sewer backups? Get a pro plumber on the job now

Binbrook Plumbing & Heating in Binbrook, Ontario, has the following advice about drains and sewers: any time you see evidence of a clogged drain or backed-up sewer, don’t delay — get a professional plumber on the job immediately!

Common reasons for clogged drains and sewers are generally due to objects being flushed down the toilet. Some of these common items include cat litter, baby diapers, tampons and grease. The best solution is one of prevention: all the various items that seem easily disposed of by flushing down the toilet should be discarded by way of the garbage.

Grease is perhaps one of the biggest culprits for drain clogs and sewer backups in both residential and commercial plumbing systems. People frequently put the grease from cooking down the drain, but that grease can cause an almost immediate clog. Other items going down the drain just make matters worse: coffee grinds, eggshells and even butter and cooking oil are just as bad. Those stopped drains can even often occur 20 or more feet into the piping, where the grease thickens to form the block.

Some simple home remedies to get slow-moving drains moving again include pouring boiling water down the drain or using vinegar with baking soda. Either method can help to break up accumulated soap and debris from regular daily use, but it still won’t correct major clogs.

There are generally two main types of sewer blockages — those in your home’s pipes that connect to the main sewer line, or stoppages in the main sewer line. You won’t always know the reason for a blocked sewer. Sewers can get backed up because of any number of external factors, including tree roots, deteriorated pipes that have broken open, or mud and sediment that have found its way into the system. But whatever the cause, that clog can cause damage to your plumbing and, in worst case scenarios, to your property.
