Sewer Repair

Residential Sewer Repair Solutions

The luxury of having clean running water available at the turn of a knob is one we often take for granted. The moment that luxury is gone is gut-wrenching and frustrating. When sewer water backs into your clean bathtub and the toilets no longer flush, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Luckily, there are experts that can identify problems and fix them promptly.

Common Plumbing Problems

Fortunately, not every plumbing issue has to be all doom and gloom. The most common household issues are toilets backing up and clogged or sluggish sinks. In most cases, a clogged toilet can be an easy fix. If you have a plunger near it can be resolved in minutes. 

The same can be said for a clogged sink, as in most cases sinks are clogged by hair or food. These items collect in the P-trap right below the sink and can be removed with a little research and elbow grease. It’s always best to try and put some form of drain cover on sinks to collect debris and avoid pesky clogs.

Unfortunately, even quick fixes can be a sign that larger problems are looming in the future. Consistently sluggish drains or clogged toilets can mean there is a larger issue that you just can’t see right now.

Time to Call in The Professionals

When the time comes that a plunger just won’t do the job, it is time to accept that the problem needs something a little more powerful. Depending on where you live and the age of your home, your problem could lie in the drainage pipes. Unfortunately, older homes used clay and copper pipes which tend to corrode and get clogged easily leading to major sewer issues. 

The most common culprit for clogs and plumbing problems is tree roots that have made their way into the pipes. In most cases, these can be removed using a rodder but there are cases when the damage is too far gone, and the pipes need to be replaced altogether. The Midwest weather can also cause damage to pipes due to rapid temperature changes leading to shifting soli and freezing ground.

Dealing with plumbing issues can become overwhelming and quite stressful. The professionals at Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing are available to help ease your mind and get your plumbing issues solved quickly and efficiently. If you are struggling with a sewer or plumbing emergency don’t hesitate to reach out to us today.
