Frequently Asked Questions

Some Spokane homeowners are comfortable attempting DIY drain cleaning methods when experiencing a slow drain at just one fixture. If you plan to unclog a drain at home, make sure you use safe methods to avoid causing damage to your plumbing pipes.

  • Avoid drain cleaning chemicals and store-bought products advertised to break up clogs. These chemicals are often not safe and can break down your pipes.
  • Kitchen sink drains, bathroom sink drains, shower drains, and tub drains can be cleared up with natural products in many cases. A cup of baking soda is poured into the drain followed by a cup of vinegar. Cover the drain opening and leave the solution to sit inside the pipes for at least 30 minutes. Turn on hot water and allow it to flow through the drain.
  • Many toilet clogs can be broken up with the help of heat and gravity. Pour a pot of boiling hot water into the bowl, holding it at waist height as you pour. Give the water time to cool and then flush – heat can break down the materials and the force of water rushing in can move the material on through the line.

Being proactive about clogged drains can help homeowners avoid serious plumbing damage. When you notice slowed drainage, don’t put off a call for drain cleaning services until the drain is completely blocked. Watch for these signs that often appear when you have a clog forming in your pipes:

  • Drains often become noisier when a clog has formed in the pipe. Gurgling or bubbling noises come out of the drain while a fixture is in use or when nearby fixtures or water-consuming appliances are in use. Flushing a toilet may result in sounds from bathroom sink drains in the same bathroom.
  • Clogs can also produce a backup of water into plumbing fixtures. The use of one fixture may produce a backup into another. When a toilet flushes, sink drains, and shower drains may experience water coming back up.
  • A clogged sewer pipe can produce standing water in the yard or pooling water at a basement floor drain. While sometimes visible, this symptom can be hard to detect depending on your landscaping and other natural features. The presence of more insects and pests is a good indicator of stagnant, standing water.
  • The smell of sewage is a strong sign you have clogged drains. When the odor is first detected in the home, it’s time to call a plumber for drain cleaning services

At some point, tree roots may grow near your sewer line and damage it. You can’t see this happening, but you will begin to notice signs inside your home if your sewer line is broken or damaged in any way. At Mainstream, we can identify where the damage to your sewer line is and take care of all the necessary repairs.

  • Slow-moving drains: When water starts to drain much slower than normal from more than just one drain, it may mean that your sewer line is compromised. Tree roots are often a common cause.
  • Sewer backups: When sewage starts backing up in your drains, it’s a sign that something is blocking your sewer line. Tree roots can cause sewer lines to collapse and will block the forward flow of sewage.
  • Gurgling, noisy pipes: When your sewer line is plugged, air can be trapped in the pipes and start to gurgle as it moves through the lines.
  • Unpleasant sewer gas odors: Sewage has a distinctive odor that is quite unpleasant. When you notice sewer gas odors in your home, it’s a good sign that damage has occurred to your sewer line.
  • Puddles or wet spots in your yard: When your sewer line breaks, water will leak into your lawn, causing wet spots and puddles to form. This will put even more pressure on the pipe and damage it further.

If you notice signs of tree root infiltration, call Mainstream Electric, Plumbing, Heating and Cooling professionals to schedule service.
