How a Clogged Drain Becomes a Health Hazard
You may not immediately realize, but drain clogs can throw your household out of whack. Aside from the apparent inconvenience that a slow draining or completely blocked sink, shower, or toilet brings, clogs can pose a handful of health-related risks. Fortunately, you can always count on our A.M. Plumbing & Rooter experts to provide efficient drain cleaning in San Marcos, CA. Read on to learn how clogged drains can result in serious health hazards.
The buildup of organic matter in a clogged drain can start to decompose and eventually cause foul odors to emanate throughout your home. Not only are these smells unpleasant and hard to get rid of, but they can also cause headaches and nausea over time. It’s not worth dealing with this type of stress when a professional can tackle the problem.
Mold and Mildew
When water cannot properly drain, it can lead to stagnant pools of water in your sinks or shower. This is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause respiratory issues and trigger allergies, asthma, and other health problems. Let your trusted local plumber perform drain snaking or other drain cleaning techniques to clear obstructions and allow water to drain properly.
No one wants nasty pests to inhabit their home, but this is what can happen when clogged drains are neglected. Flies, cockroaches, and other insects are drawn to the decomposing matter in your pipes. These unsanitary pests can carry and spread germs and even contaminate your food, further exacerbating the risks of contracting diseases.
Because wastewater cannot exit your home when drains are blocked, it can back up into your sinks and toilets. This unsightly (and gross) mess exposes you to harmful bacteria and pathogens found in sewage. In addition, if you have any cuts or open wounds, you risk becoming infected by coming into contact with these contaminants. Immediate drain cleaning services are crucial to avoid dealing with sewer backups.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
