A clogged drain is more than just an inconvenience—it’s a potential danger to you and your home.

The clog can then begin to affect other parts of your sink, including your garbage disposal.
If your laundry machine isn’t draining properly, the effects can be even worse: dirt and bacteria from dirty clothes will continue to sit on your laundry after the cleaning, which can lead to the spread of harmful germs.
At Boyd Rogers, we’ve been providing drain cleaning services San Diego can trust since 1977. Don’t wait until that clog turns into a full-blown drain replacement. Call our experts today and we’ll send a team over to fix your clogged drain before it costs you even more.

The drains in your home or office carry away unclean water and other debris and help keep your home clean and sanitary.

We know the drains at Sea World, Legoland and the San Diego Zoo. If we can keep those drains working, our drain cleaning San Diego team can handle your clogged drain problems.
Drains get blocked because some object or combination of food, grease and hair get lodged in the pipes and the water cannot pass through. If you can spot the signs that tell you your drains are starting to backup, you can call our drain repair San Diego team to get them running smoothly in no time.
Most Common Causes for Blocked Drains
In your garden, the leaves and roots of trees somehow manage to get in your drain pipes. Leaves simply stick together and cause a major block, but roots are sneakier. They begin by finding the tiniest of cracks in your pipes and gradually fill the pipe with full-grown roots. The drain cleaning services San Diego trusts are provided by us. We have the equipment and expertise to remove the roots from your pipes as well as any other garden debris that has gathered down your outdoor drains.
Pipes can get shifted because of earthquakes, natural settling of the house and soggy soil. When they shift, they could sustain small cracks that allow dirt to gradually fill up the pipe. If this happens, call our drain replacement San Diego technicians to replace the broken pipes.
In the kitchen, the most common cause of blocked drains is grease and fat. When these substances are washed down your drain, it’s usually with cold or lukewarm water. Any water short of boiling hot will cause the grease and fat to solidify on the sides of your pipes. After some time, depending on the amount you wash away, it will build up to the point that no water can get passed. However, our drain cleaning San Diego experts can remove it.
In the bathroom drains, hair and soap scum are the culprits for most clogged drains in the sink, shower and tub. The toilet is another thing entirely. Many foreign objects get flushed down the toilet either by accident or on purpose. Children may flush toys, young girls may flush sanitary napkins and anyone may try to flush disposal diapers. These are the on-purpose items. A new roll of toilet paper, a washcloth or small towel may go unnoticed. Whatever the cause, a backed-up toilet is the worst drain problem and requires professional help immediately. Don’t hesitate to call our drain repair service San Diego expert team at any time of the day or night.
Most drains in homes and office buildings get clogged eventually and require professional drain repair expertise. However, there are some steps you can take to reduce that amount of blockage that goes down your drains.
- If you have hard water, you can have a water softener installed. Softened water will combine better with soap, so it doesn’t stick to the sides of the pipes. Otherwise, it may be better to use liquid soap for your showers.
- There are hair catchers that can be installed on the top of your shower or sink drain that will greatly reduce the amount of hair that goes down and gets stuck on the other stuff in the pipes.
- Toilet paper is the only paper that is specifically made to be flushed down your toilet. Even large clumps of toilet paper don’t break down easily. Paper towels and sanitary products are the two most common items that are regularly flushed down toilets. Keep a trash can available where paper towels and sanitary items after they are wrapped in toilet paper or newspaper can be put.
- In the kitchen, food is the number one drain-clogger. Install a strainer on the top of the drain and put all food, even smaller particles, in the garbage. Not all liquids should be poured down the drain. Gravy, oil used for frying and any other liquid that will congeal when it gets cold should be put in the trash.
Sewage Drain Clogs
When a sewage drain gets clogged, it is considered a plumbing emergency. If this happens, all the drains could start to back up and no plumbing should be used until our San Diego drain cleaning team has dealt with the emergency. We’re available 24/7, so you don’t have to live with this situation for long.
