Clogged Drains

There is no clog too big or too small - Northern Ben Franklin unclogs them all!

Your plumbing system is like your home’s circulatory system. You need it flowing unobstructed to have maximum health and wellness. In addition to pipes, sinks and faucets, your drains are a vital component of your plumbing system. When they work properly, we don’t notice or think about them. But drains take a lot of abuse trying to clear food, oils, hair, hygiene products, and lots of other items. When a drain gets clogged, it will start smelling and eventually overflow. Heaven forbid it bursts!

Northern Ben Franklin eats clogs for breakfast (figuratively, not literally) so you never have to worry about any such disasters that may befall your home or family. Let us come to your home to investigate, diagnose and solve your drain problems.

Our expert Northern Ben Franklin Plumbers are standing by to solve your drain issues fast. Call us at (800) 259-7705!

What Causes Clogged Drains?

Since drains operate underground and out of sight throughout your home, problems can arise at a number of different points. You may assume drainage issues occur at the opening of your drain, but clogs often develop deep inside a drain’s pipe.

The following can cause drain clogs:

  • Buildup of food, oils, hair, etc.
  • Foreign objects
  • Roots
  • Ground settling
  • Drain pipe collapses
  • Erosion
  • Misaligned drain pipe sections

Yes you read that right. Roots! They sometimes penetrate through a drain line as they grow. Other foreign objects can gather and clog a drain, and even soil can enter your pipes because pipes are underground where soil shifts around. Because of that same underground nature, pipes can collapse or slowly change alignment which also causes clogs. Northern Ben Franklin’s underground camera tools let us visually inspect even the most difficult-to-reach sections of your plumbing.

Signs of a clogged drain include:

  • Slow draining showers and tubs
  • Backed up sinks
  • Gurgling sounds while draining
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Bubbling toilets when sink faucets are turned on
