FAQs about Drain Cleaning

Why is drain cleaning important? Regular drain cleaning is essential for maintaining proper drainage and preventing clogs and backups in your plumbing system. It helps remove built-up debris, grease, and mineral deposits that can obstruct the flow of water.

Is professional drain cleaning expensive? The cost of professional drain cleaning varies depending on factors such as the severity of the clog, the size of the plumbing system, and the location of the clog. However, investing in professional drain cleaning can help prevent costly repairs associated with untreated clogs and backups.

How does professional drain cleaning work? Professional drain cleaning involves various techniques depending on the severity of the clog and the condition of the pipes. Hydro-jetting utilizes high-pressure water to dislodge debris and buildup from pipe walls, while enzymatic treatments introduce natural bacteria to break down organic matter. A trained plumber will assess the situation and recommend the most suitable method for cleaning your drains effectively.

Unclogging Tips for Every Drain:

  1. Toilet Unclogging: Trying to force a clog through with a plunger might worsen the problem. Instead, create a seal and gently push down before pulling sharply to create suction, which can dislodge the clog. For stubborn clogs, utilize a closet auger specifically designed for toilets, which can break up or extract the clog without harming the porcelain.           

  2. Lavatory Sink Unclogging: Plungers are effective, but ensure to cover the overflow hole to maximize hydraulic pressure. When plunging isn't enough, use a wire drain snake to clear the clog effectively.                         

  3. Bathtub Unclogging: Similar to sinks, cover the overflow when plunging to build up pressure. Alternatively, feed a snake through the overflow opening for a direct route to the trap, bypassing tight turns in the drain.       

  4. Drain Pipe Unclogging: Larger drain pipes can also clog over time. Locate clean-out fittings at changes of direction and use a wire snake or drain-cleaning bladder to clear the blockage. Running water while snaking the drain helps flush loosened build-up away.                                   

  5. Floor Drain Unclogging: For basement, garage, or laundry room floor drains, utilize an electric power auger for tough blockages caused by soap scum, lint, and bacteria. Follow safety precautions and utilize proper techniques for effective results.

What are the signs of a clogged drain?:

Common signs of a clogged drain include slow drainage, water pooling around drains, gurgling noises, foul odors emanating from drains, and backups in sinks, tubs, or toilets.

When should I call a professional plumber?:

If DIY methods fail to unclog the drain, or if you notice recurring clogs despite your efforts to prevent them, it's time to call a professional plumber. Additionally, if you suspect a more serious issue such as a sewer line blockage or tree root intrusion, a plumber can assess the situation and provide appropriate solutions.
