Experienced Water Heater Services
When your water heater is not working, all tasks come to a halt. There is not much you can do in your home that doesn’t require hot water. Everything from washing and sanitizing a load of dishes to taking a shower and getting ready for school or work requires hot water.
- The thermostat can go out on your water heater, leaving you without hot water, with water that is not hot enough, or with water that is dangerously too hot
- The heating element of your water heater can go out. This will leave you without hot water at all. If your water heater is more than six years old, you should consider replacing it.
- The tank begins to leak. Inside of your hot water heater tank, the water is constantly heated and cooled. This causes movement in the materials of the tank and can lead to the seam splitting and leaking.
If you notice any of these signs of trouble coming from your water heater, make sure that you contact us right away so that we can help to identify and remedy the problem.
Drain Cleaning in Lafayette
The drain system of your home is highly sensitive. Mostly, because it was designed to manage wastewater and organic solid waste, but more than that is often sent down the drains. The products that get rinsed down your drains will create a build-up of residue on the inside walls of the plumbing system that is attached to the drains. Not to mention, the drain itself can quickly get clogged with products like these:
- Shaving cream
- Shampoo and hair products
- Food scraps
- Meat grease
- Cleaning chemicals
All of these products get rinsed down the drain in your bathroom and kitchen, and then mix together in the drain and pipes. If there isn’t water rinsed down the drain for a period of time, then these materials begin to dry out in your pipes and drain – and solidify.
Sewer Line Cleaning
An extension of your drain system is your sewer system. In fact, all of the drains in your home connect to your sewer system so that the waste materials that are generate by your household are carried away from your home and to the sewer treatment facility.
Anything that you put down the drain in your home will eventually wind up in your main sewer line, which means that there are many things that can clog or damage your main sewer line:
- Grease and meat drippings. When you put these materials down the drain in your kitchen sink, they might not clog the drain right away or at all. But, eventually they will land in your main sewer line. Having a build-up of grease from your kitchen sink in the main sewer line is dangerous because it can mix with the toilet paper or other paper products that get flushed down the toilet. All mixed together, these items can create a very dangerous clog.
- Non-flushable paper products. Your toilet and sewer line were only designed to manage human waste and small amounts of toilet paper. When you flush items down the toilet like q-tips, baby wipes, and used cotton balls, you are putting your sewer system at great risk.
- Foreign objects. If you have small children in your home, it is a good idea to either child-proof the door to the bathroom or child-lock the toilet. It is not out of the norm for a child to become fascinated with the toilet and send a foreign object down the drain.
