Clogged Drain Repair Service from McCarthy Services


Drain Cleaning Services in Northern Virginia

If you have a clogged drain that needs professional plumbing services, call McCarthy Services for drain cleaning services in Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, VA, and the surrounding areas. If your plumbing drain isn't fixed, you could eventually be faced with a much bigger problem, including major backups, damage to appliances, water damage to your home, and damage to your lawn and landscaping.

Drains need unclogging because of dirt and grime, grease, objects that fall down the toilet or sink, and even tree roots. Regardless of the reason for your clog, our local certified plumbers use the latest drain cleaning equipment, such as motorized snakes and hydro jetting, to pinpoint exactly where and what the problem is. We will then perform whatever quality plumbing services are needed to fix the drain issue.

Common Drain Clogs

Clogged Sink Drains: Whether it’s in the kitchen or bathroom, sinks can become blocked because of grease, soap, toothpaste, and food waste. Every time these substances pass through your pipes, they leave a residue. Over time, this residue can build up and clog your sinks.

Clogged Tub Drains: The most common cause of bathroom tub drains is hair. Every time we wash our hair or shave in the shower, pieces of hair will go towards the tub drain. If there’s nothing set at the drain to catch this hair, it will be washed down and eventually build up in the pipes.

Clogged Toilets: Most of the time when one of our customers has a clogged toilet drain, it is because of such items as Kleenex, baby wipes, toys or clothing. People will flush things down that aren’t able to quickly disintegrate, and children may put things in the toilet while playing. Regardless of what it is, these items can very easily clog your toilets and create the need to call a professional plumber.

Clogged Sewer Lines: All of your household drains lead into your main sewer line, which connects to a city sewer line or septic tank. The reason these lines usually clog is that of tree roots. Tree roots continually grow seeking moisture, and unfortunately can break or disrupt anything in their way.

We have also sophisticated equipment and camera systems to allow for much more accurate inspection and repair of a variety of elements that form any residential plumbing system.

Video Camera Inspections

Plumbers once had to make an educated guess where to repair stuck drain lines. Now, a video camera inspection is the best way to determine where you have an issue with your drain lines.

During a camera inspection, a video line is fed through your main sewer line (the large waste pipe that runs from your house to the street) or through your branch lines (from your sinks and bathtubs). As our cable moves down the line, a camera at the end of this line provides a real-time video feed to actually see the problem and a transmitter to pinpoint the location of a blockage.

Once the blockage is located, an accurate plan for repairs can be made. This saves each customer time, money, and eliminates the need for guesswork. Call or schedule online today to book a video camera inspection of your home.

What are the Signs You Need a Drain Cleaning?

The drains in your home can become clogged for several reasons. Some of the most common symptoms of a clogged drain include:

  • Slow draining or standing water in your tub or sink.
  • Toilet not filling up properly due to decreased water pressure
  • Drains overflowing
  • Gurgling sounds coming from your drains

If you experience any problems with your drain, the best course of action is to call in professional plumbers from McCarthy Services right away. They can diagnose the problem quickly and make sure the repair is carried out properly.

How to Prevent a Clogged Drain

As with most plumbing emergencies, a clogged drain is almost completely preventable. Some of the best tips for preventing burst pipes include:

  • Ensure no food or hair enters your pipes by installing a screen over the drains. These can be bought at almost any hardware store
  • Run hot water down your drain at least once per week to quickly clean it out
  • Keep hard items like shells or bones out of your garbage disposal
  • Ensure that things like grease or hair never get rinsed down the drain
