If you have clogged drains or slow drains in Myrtle Beach it could be due to the age or the pitch of the pipe to your home or sewer line. Slow drains could be caused by a number of different reasons. One of the most common reasons for slow drains in your tubs, showers or lavatories could be the buildup of soap, toothpaste, shaving crème and hair or hair products. Over time they will build up on the walls of the pipes and drain lines and cause a slow running drain.
In your kitchen with slow drains it could be caused by a buildup of grease from normal day to day cleaning of your pots, pans and cooking utensils or by a faulty disposal that is old and worn out. Grinders in the garbage disposal that is not properly grinding the food going down the drain line which makes the food you are grinding bigger, heavier and harder for the water you are running to properly flush these articles through the lines. Over time this will cause a drain blockage.
If you have gurgling in your toilets and tubs when you are taking a shower or flushing the toilet, this could be caused by either blocked vents that go out your roof which helps your drains get proper ventilation or this could be the indication of blocked waste lines under your home or your main sewer line going from your house to the street or your septic tank could be blocked or have an obstruction causing your lines to back up.
All of the problems that we have spoken about can be as easy as cleaning out the hair and built up residue in your tub or shower strainer and your lavatory pop-ups can be easily pulled out and cleaned. Or getting on your roof and checking your vents by running a garden hose down your vents on the roof and washing any debris like leaves that may be causing a blockage. Or you may need to use a drain cable to clear any blockages that may be causing your slow or blocked drains. Or in some cases, it may take a more complex measure and your lines may need to be replaced.
