Clogged Toilet Repair

Clogged Toilet & Repair throughout the Virginia Beach Area

I am a Realtor representing the interests of an out of state client.  I had been working with American Mechanical (AM) a few weeks to correct a home inspectors piping deficiency item related to a rec... More ent water heater installation done by AM.  All parties had been very pleasant and professional on the phone but not as responsive in meeting requests.  As time was running out before closing on the property, Chuck was sent to meet me at the home to work up an estimate to modify piping to clear the inspectors deficiency.  Chuck listened to my review of the situation, he climbed into the attic to check the heater and proceeded to his truck returning with tools and materials and about 30 minutes later asked me to check the piping modification.  He completed insulating the new pipes, helped me photograph the finished job and bid me a friendly farewell.  Chuck’s responsiveness, professionalism, and pleasant demeanor made up for my earlier frustration in communicating with the company.  Our mutual client’s needs were met and I would recommend the company and Chuck in particular for any future mechanical/plumbing needs.  Jim Jones, Long & Foster Realtors"

ThinkstockPhotos-148412555 resizeClogged toilets are common plumbing problems. Understanding the causes of clogged toilets is the first step in taking steps to avoid future problems after a toilet problem has been repaired by a professional plumber from American Mechanical in Virginia Beach, VA.

What Causes Clogged Toilet Problems?

The main reason for blockage is when foreign items are flushed down, or if there are excessive amounts of toilet paper being flushed. This can be difficult if there are already other waste materials blocking the pipes.

Toilets can also become clogged due to outside factors. Tree roots can invade your sewer line and hinder the normal flow of waste and water. A blocked sewer line can then lead to a clogged toilet. In more severe cases, your toilet may start to overflow if flushed.

How are Clogs Removed?

Seek professional toilet clog removal to reduce the risk of future problems. We have additional tools apart from the traditional plunger or chemical drain cleaner.

If a blockage is persistent, this means the drainage pipe has usually become completely clogged with debris. In this case, we will use a drain snake to break through the debris, creating an opening for water and waste to flow through normally again. Drain snaking is often a temporary solution, though, and heavier blockages will require hydrojetting; in extreme cases, we will need to remove your toilet to clear the pipeline.
