Clogged drains are not only a plumbing problem, but they can also lead to issues with your health, and only a plumber can help especially if you need a sewer inspection. You may try a plunger and strong drain-cleaning chemicals to unblock your drain, but you could do more harm than good. The best way to avoid troublesome clogged drains is to have a plumber in Burnaby conduct a drain inspection. Our sewer camera inspection services rely on high-definition cameras, so we can recommend the best solution to keep your drains flowing smoothly.
Common Drain Issues
The two most common causes of drain problems are blockage from paper produces, soap and hair and grease, which you can control, and collapsing old pipes, underground leaks and tree roots, which you may not be able to control.
Whatever the cause of your plumbing problems, you need a plumber in Burnaby, BC, and nearby areas who conducts sewer camera inspection services. There are several options for blocked sewer lines, but we will need to know the exact location of the blockage and what is causing it to choose the best remedy. Only a thorough plumbing inspection can determine the best solution for your clogged drains.
Signs to Keep an Eye On
You may see some signs that you are heading for a clogged drain problem. If you see these signs, be sure to call us for a pipe inspection before a more serious problem develops. Keep an eye on:
- Water draining very slowly from your shower, tub or sinks
- Drains that regularly become clogged
- Several drains in your home that become clogged at the same time
- A foul odor in your home with no obvious source
- Flooding from your dishwasher or washing machine

Importance of Having Your Drains Inspected
Regular drainage inspections may not only keep your plumbing flowing smoothly, but they will also help you avoid costly repairs in the future. Water damage is a dangerous consequence because you may not even be aware that there is dampness in your walls from pinhole leaks in your plumbing. Even clean water can start to grow toxic mold within 48 hours. This is why it is important to make sure your plumbing is functioning properly at all times.
It may be tempting to try to unplug your drains with a plunger or strong chemical drain cleaner, but you could damage your pipes and do more harm than good. We have the expertise, experience, and tools to examine your plumbing quickly and efficiently.
