Expertly Clearing Out Clogged Drains in Nassau County & Beyond

Have your drains become clogged or failing to drain properly? A complete overflow may seem like the only form of emergency which can come from a clogged drain. However, it is important to have your drains cleaned before it comes to that. In fact, it is advisable to have our Nassau County plumbers at Ken's Plumbing & Heating inspect and clean your drains regularly as a form of preventative maintenance.

Signs Your Drains Need to Be Cleaned

There are many different ways you may determine that your pipes are clogged. Some of the most common signs include:

  • Your toilet is bubbling
  • Bad odors coming from your drains
  • Your sink, tub, or shower is slow to drain
  • Water backs up to your sink or tub
  • Puddles of water near your sink, tub, shower, or washing machine

It is also important to know what can't go down your drains to prevent these issues.

Our Nassau County plumbers use the latest technology and proven techniques to repair drainage problems. We work to prevent creating any further damage to your plumbing system by going through a careful inspection and diagnosis process before we start our repairs.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Drain Blockages?

Drain blockages can be caused by a variety of factors, but some of the most common ones include:

  • Accumulation of Grease and Fat: Grease and fat from cooking can solidify inside drains, gradually building up and causing blockages.
  • Foreign Objects: Items such as food scraps, paper towels, hygiene products, and hair can accidentally be washed down drains, leading to blockages.
  • Tree Root Intrusions: Tree roots can infiltrate underground sewer lines, causing blockages as they grow and expand within the pipes.
  • Mineral Build-Up: Minerals like calcium and magnesium can accumulate inside pipes over time, especially in areas with hard water, leading to reduced water flow and eventual blockages.
  • Collapsed or Damaged Pipes: Pipes can deteriorate over time due to age, corrosion, or physical damage, leading to collapses or partial blockages.
  • Poor Drain Design or Installation: Inadequate slope or incorrect installation of drain pipes can contribute to blockages by impeding the proper flow of water and waste.
  • Excessive Toilet Paper Usage: Flushing large amounts of toilet paper or using non-flushable items can cause clogs in toilet drains.
  • Chemical Build-Up: Chemical residues from household cleaners or personal care products can accumulate in drains, contributing to blockages over time.

Regular maintenance, proper disposal of waste, and avoiding flushing inappropriate items can help prevent drain blockages.
