It can happen to each and every Michigan homeowner at some point: you run water in the sink, or take a shower, or flush a toilet, and suddenly, it happens—the water doesn’t drain. Instead, it backs up and begins to accumulate, then eventually it overflows. By that point, it’s quite obvious that you have a seriously clogged drain in your hands.
There a few basic repairs you can try to do that may solve the problem. Don’t try to tackle the problem yourself if it extends beyond your ability to repair—it may only lead to more repairs and added expenses in the end. Also, it’s important that you don’t ignore the problem too long as drainage problems tend to escalate the more you leave them alone.
