Clogged Toilet

Clogged Toilet Repairs in Virginia Beach

Restoring Your Home’s Most Crucial Systems

Clogged 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 in Virginia Beach from American Mechanical, Incorporated.

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.

Blockages further down in your system are identified using a video pipe camera. This specialized camera will pinpoint the exact location of blockage or damage, giving us an accurate view of where to perform the repair without having to dig up your property or remove any piping.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “You’ve been patient and understanding of our needs and concerns as we progressed from talking about a combi-tankless unit through its installation. While you are probably more accustomed to fielding problems, allow me to offer some compliments. Our experience with American Mechanical has been most unusual. Never before have we worked with a company that seemingly couldn’t do enough to satisfy our requests. Every concern was met with a serious and immediate attempt at solution. Communications were easy and two-way. The gentlemen who made the initial installation (Tony and Bobby) as well as the men who did the later work (Trey and Dave) treated our home like a home, not just another workplace. We enjoyed having them here, and kind of missed them when the work was finished. They did their work artfully – even making a special effort to get the recirculating pump control in an easy to use location. Finally, they did a nice job of cleaning up after each hard day of work. There is a company that advertises that it is “our company for life”. Well, that’s how we feel about American Mechanical after this experience. You played a critical role in creating that commitment. We’ve already called upon your company for a plumbing repair; and we’ll be calling you soon to talk about a whole house generator. We look forward to many years of work together in the future.” - John Stewart
  • “Each time I use American Mechanical the experience gets even better. The text message with the techs picture and background ensures I know who I’m expecting. The tech tracking link shows me where my technician is and exactly when to expect his arrival. The personal attention, explanations, and quality of service of the tech is always outstanding. Kudos for not being satisfied with just doing the same old thing and be willing to continue to improve the customer experience.” - Bruce & Cathy
  • “I want to express my appreciation and satisfaction with the follow-up work David and Randy completed today on my duct system. They were able to quickly and satisfactorily make the necessary repair and add to that, their professional and positive attitude and that makes for an upbeat and pleasant experience. Once again, it was a pleasure doing business with American Mechanical.” - Mike Barrett
  • “American Mechanical recently installed a HALO air purifier to our new system, (also installed by American Mechanical), and we are very pleased with it. Air quality is of great importance to us, especially because of allergies we have. Since the HALO was installed, the quality of air is greatly improved. I would recommend the HALO purifier and American Mechanical to anyone interested in improving the quality of the air in their homes.” - Judy M
  • “*** ***** went the extra distance and found a problem in our attic with a damaged furnace pipe that could have caused further problems. We called upon the same company to fix the issue at minimal cost. *** ***** was knowledgeable, personable, and courteous. Thank you for your dedication to your customer's well being.” - Travis H
  • “**** came back to do some additional work after an install. He spoke very highly of his company and made us feel even more satisfied that we chose the right business for all the work done.

  • “Robert was very informative, friendly, and helpful!” - Guillermo F
  • “**** * came out to our house to help with our A/C unit. He was very kind. You could tell he really takes pride in his work. He would explain what was wrong, even if it was his mistake. He was a pleasure to work with.” - Christy B
  • “Tony J. from American Mechanical was outstanding! He and his partner Dennis S. did everything right, from calling and arriving early to clean up and making sure I understand what was done, even to the point of programming the new digital thermostat.
