Common Causes of Drain Emergencies

An emergency drain cleaning is something no one ever wants to have to make a call for, but, unfortunately, it is an event we go through from time to time. When your drain is backed up, you want to be sure you have an experienced, reputable team on your side to make quick work of cleaning your drain and getting your household plumbing back on track. If you experience such an emergency in Portland, Oregon, Columbia Drain Co. has the expertise you need to quickly remedy the problem.

There are several problems that may arise in your home that would require a proper cleaning to get them functioning properly and prevent further issues.

Floor Drains

Your basement, bathroom, utility room, patio, or garage may have a floor drain, which can easily become clogged by debris that naturally gathers on the floor, such as leaves, dirt, gravel, and yard waste. If this drain becomes clogged and you experience heavy rain or flooding, your home may sustain damage from standing water.

Toilets

We rely heavily on our bathroom toilet to whisk away their intended waste. Unfortunately, they sometimes become clogged with toilet tissue, facial tissue, tampons, and other products that get flushed. A professional cleaner can clear this clog and ensure your toilet is in proper working condition.

Sinks

Our kitchen sinks take dirty dish water and small bits of food away, and the bathroom sink is great for draining our soapy water and toothpaste, but they sometimes get clogged with bigger pieces of food, grease, hair, dropped pieces of jewelry, and other items that are too big for the plumbing to handle properly.

If you have the unfortunate experience of a clogged drain, seek help from a qualified professional as soon as possible to get things running smoothly again. Columbia Drain Co. has a knowledgeable team who can handle any clog and end your stress over the backed up drain. Call us at (503) 313-7246 if you have a drain emergency.
