A clogged drain hardly happens at a convenient time. You may have already tried DIY techniques but have yet to be successful. Sometimes, clogs are further down the line than can be reached by snaking the drain. Instead, you may need professional equipment and expertise, such as a camera inspection, to identify and locate the clog before hydrojetting it clear.

Common Causes Of Drain Clogs In St Louis Homes

You know you have a drain clog, but what caused it? The culprit could be a number of things, including Hard St. Louis water, aging plumbing, or substances like paint and chemicals that damage your pipes and build up to create a blockage. The location of the drain could also be a key factor in what created the blockage in the first place.

Drain Location Type of Drain Cause of Clog
Kitchen Sink Grease buildup, food particles, food from garbage disposal, soap, powdered products that create a kind of paste
Bathroom Sink/Shower/Tub Hair, soap, toothpaste, shaving cream, hair products, powdered products
Bathroom Toilet Toilet paper, feminine and personal care products, “flushable” wipes [1]
Basement Floor Debris, roots, grease, foreign objects, poor installation, or main sewer line clogs
With these clog creators in mind, you can do a few things to avoid clogging your drains in the future. For instance,

  • Only flushing toilet paper down the toilet
  • Putting grease in a container (like a coffee can) to dispose of after cooking
  • Invest in a drain screen for your bathroom sink and shower drain
  • Pour enzyme-based (not chemical-based[2]) drain cleaner down your drains periodically

Whatever the cause, Hoffmann Brothers can help identify, locate, and clear the clog in your drainpipe using plumbing tools and technology to get your property cleaned up and water flowing again as quickly as possible.

Clogged Drains Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does It Cost To Unclog A Drain in St Louis?

Cost can vary when clearing a clogged drain. A simple clogged kitchen or bathroom sink will be a different expense than a clog in a sewer line caused by tree roots due to the nature of the clog, the ease or difficulty of access, and the equipment needed to get clear the clog.

What are the common signs of a clogged drain?

Some common indicators that you have a drain clog include:

  • Slow draining water from the sink or tub drains with or without gurgling sounds
  • Sewage smell emanating from the drain
  • Change in water flow or pressure
  • Water backing up in multiple drains (and/or your basement drain)
  • Bubbling from the toilet when running the sink water

How long does it take to clear a clogged drain?

It can depend on where the clog is in the drain and what equipment is needed to clear it. Some clogs, like a bathroom sink, could take less than 30 minutes. Others, like a sewer drain, could take longer as the clog is harder to reach.

Is it possible to prevent future drain clogs?

It is! There are things as simple as adding a drain screen to catch hair before it accumulates in your drainpipes to scheduling regular maintenance appointments for drain cleaning and sewer line inspections to help you avoid future clogs.
