Common Causes of Drain Clogs & Backups

A clogged drain is one of the most common plumbing problems for homeowners. Any time something other than water flows down the drain, there’s a possibility for a clog to form.

Here are some common reasons your drains may clog or back up into your home:

  • Hair, soap particles, dirt, grime, and other foreign objects flow down the shower or sink drains.
  • Facial tissues, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, “flushable” wipes, small toys, and other non-waste, non-toilet paper items get flushed.
  • Cooking oil and grease, chicken bones, fruit pits, fibrous vegetables, and other unapproved items go through the garbage disposal.
  • Sewer lines collapse, minerals build up, and tree roots invade underground pipes.

No matter the reason behind your clogged drain, F.H. Furr can fix the problem. Contact us to schedule drain unclogging services in Richmond.

What Drain Clearing Services Involve

Before calling a professional to clean your drain, you might try using a plunger to clear it yourself. If this doesn’t work, you might wonder what techniques a plumber will use.

When you trust F.H. Furr for drain-clearing services in Richmond, first, expect our team to assess the clog. We may ask if you have any idea what may have caused it, such as if you caught your child playing with their action figures in the toilet.

Next, we take steps to remove the blockage. Many clogs that don’t respond to plunging can be removed with a plumber’s snake or auger. This long, thin cable with a hook on the end can break up organic clogs so water can flow again.

To remove mineral buildup, we may suggest finishing the job with hydro jetting. Then, if a camera inspection reveals that the pipes are damaged, you may need to have them repaired.

Clear, efficient drains make your home healthier and more comfortable. Let us unclog your pipes today.

  • Slow drains
  • Unpleasant odors coming from your plumbing fixtures
  • Frequent toilet clogs
  • Gurgling drain noises or bubbling toilet bowls when you use other plumbing fixtures

Frequently Asked Questions

Hydro jets are a powerful, specialized tool our drain cleaning technicians use to clean drains thoroughly. Hydro jets use water pressurized between 1500 and 5000 psi to clear and remove obstructions and buildup in the drain.

Over-the-counter drain cleaning solutions and plungers can remove many minor, easy-to-reach clogs. However, they can’t effectively remove clogs deep within your pipes. The deeper the clog, the more likely you’ll need auguring or hydro jetting to resolve it.

Whenever you suspect your drain has a clog, we recommend addressing it promptly, as this can protect your pipes and prevent further damage to your sewer line.

Tree roots can enter underground pipes via cracks and loose joints. Once inside the pipe, the root will grow, leading to a blockage. This issue can be resolved by cutting the root out using an augur or hydro jet and repairing or replacing the pipe.
