Emergency Drain Cleaning FAQs

What is considered an emergency drain cleaning?

An emergency drain cleaning is required when there is a sudden, severe blockage that stops water drainage and potentially leads to flooding, property damage or poses health risks.

How can I tell if I need emergency drain cleaning?

Signs that you might need emergency service include water backing up out of drains, foul odors emanating from the plumbing, gurgling sounds from drains, and water pooling around floor drains.

What are common causes of drain blockages that might require emergency cleaning?

Common causes include accumulated grease, hair, soap scum, foreign objects, tree roots intruding into sewer lines, and structural damages to pipes.

Can I attempt to clear a blocked drain myself before calling professionals?

While minor clogs can often be resolved with a plunger or chemical drain cleaners, for significant blockages or if sewage is backing up, it's safer to call a us to avoid worsening the problem or causing damage.

What should I do while waiting for the emergency drain cleaning service?

Avoid using any plumbing in the home to prevent additional water buildup. If possible, turn off the water supply to areas affected by the backup to minimize flooding.

How do professionals clear a major drain blockage?

Gopher Sewer and Drain may use motorized drain snakes, hydro-jetting, or other specialized tools to remove blockages. We might also use cameras to inspect the pipes and identify the exact location and nature of the clog.

Is emergency drain cleaning available at any time?

Yes, We offer 24/7 emergency services to address plumbing crises at any time of the day or night.

Will my homeowner’s insurance cover emergency drain cleaning?

Coverage depends on your policy details. Some homeowner’s insurance policies cover damages and cleanup from sewage backups, but not the cost of clearing the blockage. Review your policy or contact your insurer for specific information.

How can I prevent future drain emergencies?

Regular maintenance, avoiding putting grease, non-biodegradable items, or excessive toilet paper down drains, and periodic professional inspections can help prevent future emergencies.
