Seattle Toilet Unclog & Repair Company
A clogged toilet is a common household problem. The good news is, most toilet clogs are easy for homeowners to fix, at least temporarily, on their own. However, sometimes toilet drains become overwhelmed with toilet paper or clogged by non-flushable items that find their way into the drain. A backed-up toilet can quickly become a major dilemma, especially if the water overflows and floods your bathroom.
If you’re experiencing any stubborn toilet clogs at your Seattle home, it’s time for you to call a plumber. Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter provides clogged toilet repair services and can clear any toilet drain to restore full drainage and powerful flushes. Our skilled plumbing experts can also fix problems related to running toilets, leaking toilets, broken tanks and bowls or toilets that don’t flush properly. If your DIY attempts to fix your clogged toilet, such as plunging and snaking, have failed to solve the problem, help is just a phone call away.
Why is Your Toilet Backing Up, and How Can You Fix it?
One of the most common culprits of toilet backups may surprise you: tree roots. During the spring and summer, when trees are in their peak growth period, their roots instinctively seek out any sources of moisture and nutrition. As it turns out, sewer pipes are rich in both. Tree roots can penetrate small cracks in pipes and grow to the point where they partially or completely block the sewer system.
Another reason toilets develop clogs is when people carelessly flush items down the toilet that don’t belong in the sewer system, such as paper towels, diapers, women’s hygiene products, cleaning cloths, kitty litter and even so-called “flushable” pre-moistened toilet wipes. These items don’t break down quickly enough, and can eventually block your toilet entirely. To avoid toilet backups, never flush anything except toilet paper and human waste, and don’t treat your toilet like it’s a garbage can.
The Dangers of DIY
When facing the inconvenience of a clogged toilet, you may be tempted to just pour a bottle of commercial cleaner in the toilet and call it a day. However, these products are made of harsh chemicals that can do more harm than good when it comes to your pipes. Not only do they rarely solve the problem, they can also make matters much worse. The harsh and toxic chemicals found in liquid drain cleaners are dangerous to handle and breathe in, and they can also corrode drain pipes and cause additional damage to your plumbing. To keep your home healthy and functioning properly, regular professional maintenance from the experts at Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter is essential.
