Drains in Hickory, North Carolina

Within any structure, whether residential or commercial, there are a number of different drains used for plumbing. At home, you use drains every time you flush a toilet, prepare a meal, do a load of laundry, take a shower, or wash your hands. In the office, similar usage occurs. Throughout much of every day, water and waste exit through drains and move through the pipes. Because of the high volume of usage, drains tend to clog regularly. When you or a family member takes a shower, hair goes down the drain that can build up and clog the pipe. If you have a child who accidentally flushes a toy or other non-flushable item, you could be dealing with a toilet clog. Even a large amount of food scraps can cause the drain to clog in your kitchen.

Drains need to be functioning properly in order to keep the plumbing in good condition. Even a small clog can cause slowing of drains, and a major clog causes the pipes to back up. If this occurs in a pipe that connects with your sewer line, you could be dealing with a messy and unpleasant situation. Some clogs can be cleared through at-home remedies, such as pouring boiling water and or vinegar down them to break up the debris. Plunging can also help, but watch out for backup through other connected drains if the clog won’t move.
