Most plumbing emergencies are caused by clogged drains. A blocked drain stops waste from running through your plumbing system. The most obvious sign of a clogged drain is if your shower or sink drains slowly or not at all.
A backed-up drain can be nasty! Accumulation of things like hair, food waste, and soap residue are often the main causes of this. Whether it is a clogged mainline or a slow draining tub, our drain specialists will clean any drain at any time.
Sewer backups can cause great property damage and pose a serious risk to your health. Sewer backups occur when something blocks the waste that comes from your home from running into the municipal sewer system, pushing it to back up into your house.
Common causes of sewer backups include tree roots developing inside the pipe, a clog created by a buildup of debris like grease and non-flushable paper stuff, as well as torrential rain. Regardless of the cause, call us right away if you have a sewer backup problem.
We understand the panic of flushing the toilet and seeing the water rise instead of drain. Your toilet system gets blocked when objects restrict waste or water from moving through the trap or plumbing vent.
To unblock your toilet system, enough pressure is needed to flush away the waste and blockage. If you’re unable to unblock your toilet with a plunger, our team at Proficient Plumbing Solutions can help you get your bathroom functioning again.
If you have a burst pipe, it’s important to call your 24-hour plumber for fast service, as you can’t restore water to the pipe until it has been fully repaired.
The first thing to do when you notice a burst pipe is to shut off your water supply ASAP and move water-logged items to a dry location. Then, extract as much water as you can with a wet-dry vacuum or suction pump and wait for a plumber to replace the pipe.
