Plugged Sewers

Clooged main sewer mess

If you've read this far, you must have one! A clogged main sewer in Winnipeg Manitoba is a nasty mess. Depending on how long you were using the facilities before noticing the sewage was draining into your basement, will depend on the mess at hand. Some of you have only a small area, with feces and other sewage sitting about, others will need to remove carpets and carpet underlay, drywall, and other materials to help keep the MOLD away. If your insured, its best to call your local Winnipeg Drain Cleaning Expert, then call your insurance company. Ask your insurance company to send a restoration company come out and properly clean up the mess.

Plugged Shower Drains

Pugged Shower DrainStanding in water during a shower? Clogged shower drain trap?

Having a plugged or clogged shower is a common problem in Winnipeg. Hair getting caught up in the trap  is more often than not the culprit. 
Hair Traps are a great way to prevent most of the hair from getting into the drain.

Plugged Kitchen Drain

Plugged Kitchen Sink In WinnipegNothing can be more embarrassing than having a clogged kitchen sink when company is expected!
Its important to try to catch the bigger pieces of food with a strainer.
Another handy appliance is a properly install garburator. Waste disposal units (garburator) are used to grind up the food before it goes down the drain. Worn garburator will clog drain lines as the bits of food are not properly ground up before going into the drainage system.

Winnipeg GarburatorGarburator maintenance is recommended once a month to keep the main food grinding parts moving freely.

Chemicals and Your Drains

Chemicals in your drainDrain cleaning chemicals, you see them advertised on TV, you see them sold in hardware stores. My advice is don't use them, they rarely work on stubborn clogs not to mention the environmental and human safety issues related to improper use of chemicals.

  • Sulphuric Acid is a very powerful chemical used in the drain industry. This acid is not recommended to use in cast iron or galvanized steel pipes, or near fine finishes. This acid will react very violently with hot water. In contact with metals, it will produce hydrogen vapors with risk of explosions. Bottom line, don't use it, call your contractor if you feel you have no other options with the use of chemicals.

  • Hydrochloric Acid is another cleaner used in the drain industry. It is used mostly for descaling of drain lines. Again, don't use it, you can suffer bad burns if any of these two chemicals come in contact with your skin or worse yet, your eyes.

  • Drano and other like products are used for light clogs. In many cases, if your sink is clogged with standing water, they simply will not work. Issues when using chemicals are when you are forced to call a professional, he must be careful not to damage his equipment and body with the acidic water. You will most likely end up paying more for the removal of the acidic water before the actual work can commence.
