What Causes Drain & Sewer Blockages?

Drain clogs are one of the most common plumbing issues homeowners face. Though all drain clogs slow down and even eventually stop drainage in a sink, tub, or shower, the cause of the blockage can vary extensively. Sewer lines are also prone to backup over time, which can result in foul sewer odors, sewage backup, or even burst sewer pipes.

The most common causes of drain and sewer blockages include:

  • Hair buildup
  • Fat, oil, and grease
  • Tree root intrusion
  • Food waste
  • Small objects
  • Toilet paper
  • Mineral buildup
  • Offset pipes

No matter how careful you are about what goes down your drain, eventually your pipes will need to be cleaned. If it’s time for a drain cleaning, rely on the professionals at Bartlett & Steadman Plumbing, Heating & AC. Are your drains slowing down? Let our plumbers diagnose the source of the issue and provide an effective solution.

Why Hire a Drain Cleaning Professional?

Many people are hesitant to hire a plumber for professional drain cleaning when they can just pick up a bottle of chemical drain cleaner from the hardware store. It does the same thing, right? Wrong. While you may feel like you're saving some money by skipping the service call, chemical drain cleaners can easily cause more problems than you started with, which will certainly cost more in the long run.

Because these products are made with highly corrosive chemicals, they'll eat through the clog, but they may also eat through your pipes as well. There's no guarantee that the problem won't come back because these products don't actually treat the root of the problem. Plus, you have the added worry of dealing with a dangerous substance that can cause injury if not handled properly.

When you call our Marblehead drain cleaning professionals, you can have peace of mind that your drain clog will be dealt with using the right tools and without the use of harsh chemicals for lasting results.

Drain & Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

Blockages are not the only problems that can arise with your drain and sewer lines. These pipes are also prone to cracks, punctures, corrosion, misalignment, and a host of other issues that can develop over time. These types of problems often result in leaks in and around your home. Regardless of what kind of damage your pipes have incurred, you can count on our team to repair or replace them.

Common signs that it’s time to repair or replace your drain or sewer lines include:

  • There are gurgling noises in your drains
  • You see lush patches of grass
  • You have sewage backups and blockages
