Drain Cleaning Plumber Tips: Retrieving Valuables from a Drain

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

Best drain cleaning plumber in Phoenix, AZ, available today for drain and rooter service.It’s happened to most people at one time or another. You’re standing at the sink washing your hands or doing the dishes when suddenly you realize you’re missing a ring, a bracelet, or some other valuable piece of jewelry. It’s a heart-stopping feeling that leaves you paralyzed and unsure what comes next. At Phoenix Plumbing & Drain Co., we get phones from frantic people all the time who want help retrieving a lost valuable. As the leading drain cleaning plumber in Phoenix, our experience tells us that it’s not always possible to retrieve the item. That doesn’t mean you can’t try, though. Here are some tips for finding lost jewelry or other items that have accidentally fallen in down the drain.

Turn Off the Water

Before you begin any retrieval method it’s important to turn off the water to the sink, tub, or toilet. Doing this prevents water from accidentally being turned on and pushing the item further into the plumbing system. Also, if you were draining the sink when you lost the item, plug it up immediately. Again, this prevents water from pushing the item farther into the drain.

Take the Piping Apart

Once you have shut off the water and plugged the drain, you can begin taking the piping apart under the sink. If you are lucky, the item might still be in the p-trap. Grab a bucket and place it under the piping before you start taking it apart to avoid any water damage.

Use a Heavy-duty Magnet

For times when you’re not comfortable taking piping apart or if the item accidentally fell into the toilet, you may want to use a heavy-duty magnet. This is a solution that works well with metal items, but not for toys or other items. Also, you want to be careful when choosing this option. The last thing you need is the magnet coming loose and becoming an obstruction.

Call Your Local Drain Cleaning Plumber in Phoenix

Although we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to retrieve your valuable, we suggest calling for professional assistance from a licensed plumber. The plumbers at Phoenix Plumbing & Drain Co., have years of expertise and can help you determine if the item can be retrieved. We offer 24/7 drain and rooter service for all plumbing systems, so call us at your convenience!

Why You Need Spring Drain Cleaning Services

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Area plumber available for same-day drain cleaning in PhoenixUnblocking drains during spring is probably one of the most unpopular household chores. However, many people do not have either the knowledge or the time to effectively clean their drainage systems. Phoenix Plumbing & Drain Co., has established a reputation for providing quality drain cleaning services to residents of Phoenix and surrounding counties. Drain cleaning is our specialty and we have some of the most qualified drain-cleaning technicians working for us. We would be happy to offer you spring drain-cleaning services at an affordable rate.

Sewer Odors

Sewer odor and gases can be overwhelming and embarrassing, especially when you are entertaining. Buildup of sewer and debris in your drainage system can rot and produce foul odor. A blocked drain causes stagnant water to buildup in the drain, which pushes air out of your drainage system. The air often smells bad and may contain explosive chemical compounds.

Clogged Drains

Blocked drains may cause flooding in your home, which is an inconvenience, health hazard, and may cause damage to your property. Some homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover damages caused by blocked drains. Even if your insurance covers damages caused by blocked drains, the settlement process can be long and tedious. In addition, you may be forced to find an alternative place to stay while the flooding in your home is being taken care of.

Critter Problems

Rat and pest infestation is a common problem caused by improperly maintained drainage systems. This may lead to the spread of diseases. Improper drain cleaning during spring may also lead to the spread of mold and mildew in various areas of your home. Mold and mildew are often attracted to damp environments and are a health hazard. Flooding caused by blocked drains may cause structural damage to your home.

All these problems can be caused by blocked drains, which speak to the importance of your drainage system. Phoenix Plumbing & Drain Co., provides affordable drain cleaning services to help you avoid the problems associated with blocked drains.
