Keeping your toilet maintained and running properly will help you avoid serious problems down the line, such as clogging. If you have been battling a clog for some time, and that plunger or drain opener isn’t working, it’s time to call for professional assistance. At Johnson Heating & Cooling, we help customers throughout Greenwood and surrounding areas remove the most stubborn blockages in their toilet drains.
What’s Causing Your Toilet Clog?
No matter what kind of toilet you have, you will want to keep it free of clogs. The signs are easy to identify: failure to flush, overflowing when you try to flush, and slow draining.
The main reason toilets become clogged is due to solid waste building up in the pipes. This waste can range from too much toilet paper to hair to even accidental flushing of foreign items.
What Should You Do If You Have a Clogged Toilet?
Blockages deep in your drain line will require professional drain snaking. Using a plunger or store-bought drain opener are often short-term fixes that can often invite clogs to return.
If you are experiencing frequent clog problems, it is best to call for professional help. We will use a drain camera to inspect your pipes and locate the exact area of clogging.
We usually use a drain snake to break up the offending debris and remove it from your drain system. This method is safe on your pipes and safe for the environment, with no chemicals needed in the process.
To avoid clogging problems in the future, be mindful of what gets flushed on a regular basis. Excessive toilet paper can cause problems. Avoid flushing any items other than organic waste.
