Our Drain Cleaning Process
Our process for clearing your home or businesses clogged drain will vary slightly depending on the severity of the situation. For example, a clogged toilet may only require some plunging and old fashioned elbow grease to clear. However, a completely backed up toilet with a serious clog down the line may require the toilet to be removed so that a camera can be ran down the line to put an eye on the source of the clog. The process might change again when dealing with a bathtub or shower drain clog that is a reocurring event. Typically this is a sign of a serious clog down the drain line. Most of the time we can use a piece of equipment called a plumbing snake to remove debris that has built up in the line and is responsible for causing the slow-draining issue. For the most severely clogged drain lines we may need to utilize our hydro-jetter. This is a specialized piece of plumbing equipment built to push water through pipes at very high speeds.

Leading Causes of Clogged Drains
Hair & Soap Scum
Far and away, the most common causes of clogged tub & shower drains are soap scum and hair buildup. From shaving in the shower, to natural hair loss that occurs over time, hair build up is inevitable. Couple that with the use of bar soap and you’ve got the perfect clogging agent. Switching from bar soap to liquid soap is a highly recommended practice for home’s with more dated plumbing. This can reduce a major bulking agent and limit the amount of clogs that occur down the drain line.
Pro Tip: Insert a drain stopper in your home’s showers & tubs to catch hair and bar soap pieces before they find their way into your pipes.
Food Waste & Grease
Although we are certain that the advent of the garbage disposal initally lead to fewer clogged kitchen drain lines, we are not so certain that this is true today. Garbage disposals do a great job at breaking up food waste but they also encourage homeowners or renters to dump food waste into the sink rather than discarding of it in the trash. Solid food debris and kitchen grease that flows down your kitchen drain can clog the p-trap underneath the sink and lead to foul odors and backed up plumbing.
Pro Tip: Throw all solid food waste into the garbage and never discard of cooking fats/grease down the kitchen sink in your home.
When it comes to clogged or backed up toilets the number one culprit is foreign objects that have been accidentially flushed. This includes falsely labled non-flushable wipes that have become increasingly popular over the years. Toys, feminine hygiene products, napkins, jewelry, we have seen clogs do to any number of different items. If you suspect a foreign object is causing a clog in your homes plumbing system give Action Air & Plumbing a call to schedule your same day clogged drain cleaning in Lubbock.
