All Clogged UpClogged up drains are among the top issues affecting the plumbing systems of commercial businesses and buildings. While they are a simple and common problem, they can become a costly and time-wasting nuisance if not dealt with properly or prevented. Clogged drains be disruptful to your customers, clients, and staff alike - taking time away from productive work and causing an unhygienic environment that your clients or workforce are sure to notice. This will eventually lead to a much more intensive and costly cleaning process when it comes to clearing out those severely gunked up drains. One Way Rooter’s team of trained plumbers know just what to do when you drains clog up and how to keep them from clogging up in the future.
What Causes a Clog?Drain clogs come from a number of factors. While we all hope that only water goes down our faucet, toilet, and bathtub drains, usually what ends flows down along with the water gets stuck in the sides of the pipes, resulting in a buildup over time. This buildup can be made of hair, food, dirt, sand, grease, soap, toilet paper, and various other foreign objects; if it can fit down the drain, the chances are that it’s somehow in there.
There are multiple signs that you may have clogged drains. These signs will be apparent and if you notice them, you should give our experts at One Way Rooter a call right away.
