What Causes Drain Backups?

Drain backups can potentially be caused by a number of different issues or behaviors. Regular maintenance and proper drain use is your best bet for prevention; but if you have a problem that needs to be addressed immediately, the cause could possibly be some of the following:

  • Broken pipes: If you own an older home in Toronto or the GTA, the issue could be with your pipes themselves.
  • Improper disposal of items: Items such as napkins, facial tissue (“Kleenex”) or even baby wipes that claim to be “flushable” can wreak havoc on your drain system.
  • Buildup: Over time, things like hair going down your bathroom drain can build up and cause a clog. The same goes for pouring grease, oils and fats down your kitchen drain.
  • Tree Roots in Drain: Roots find their way into the sewer line through a crack, and once there, flourish in that environment.

Drain/Sewer Backup Customer Feedback:

“We live in an old Toronto house and have had issues with our drain over the years. DrainWorks is part of my plan to keep the drain in perfect working order without going through an unnecessary and
stressful and potentially much more expensive sewer backup. Scheduling and completion of the service were flawless.  Thank you.” – Murray in Toronto
 “Called at 8:00 am to deal with flooding from blocked drains and Armando arrived by 10:00. He was polite and professional. He told me what was wrong and gave me the options. He snaked the drain and fixed the problem in no time. Then he snaked a bathtub drain at a reduced cost while he was there. He cleaned everything up, wrote a detailed invoice for the exact amount he had promised and was gone. As far as drain experiences go, it could not have been easier. I feel I got my money’s worth and didn’t have any grief. Thanks Armando! ” – Will O’Hara in Toronto
“Our basement bathroom started leaking so we figured it was a sewer back up. I called DrainWorks due to the great reviews on HomeStars and was not disappointed! My technician Lou was prompt (wow) and courteous. He took the time to explain what was happening and what needed to be done. Great service.” – Danetin in Toronto
