Drain Cleaning Services in Cedar City

Clogged Drains? No Problem!

Most people are no stranger to clogged drains. Slow running drains and full sinks are a widespread plumbing problem. However, while they can be annoying, at some point, they can be extremely problematic.

Call (435) 740-8270 or request an estimate for drain cleaning near you.

What Causes Clogged Drains?

A lot of people don’t realize that drains aren’t designed to dispose of most items that wind up getting flushed into the pipes. For example, did you know that tampons tend to cause a lot of plumbing problems even though they’re supposed to be flushable? Additionally, while human hair is thin and should be completely capable of going down a pipe, too much hair can get caught in masses of soap that solidify into a clog in your shower and sink drains.

Kitchen Drains

Kitchen drains, while having the benefit of garbage disposals, can’t handle everything. Many kitchen and food items should go in the trash rather than the drain. All of the following items should never be flushed down your kitchen drain:

  • Food grease
  • Fats & oils
  • Fruit pits
  • Medications
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Coffee grounds
  • Eggshells
  • Produce stickers
  • Paint

Many of these items either get caught in the garbage disposal, harm the garbage disposal, or combine with other substances to form solid clogs in your pipes that are hard to dissolve.

Bathroom Drains

Bathroom drains can be more sensitive since they don’t have the advantage of garbage disposals. While many items are perfectly safe when going down your pipes, there are several that you should place in a garbage can rather than in your sink.

Avoid flushing the following items down a bathroom drain:

  • Cotton swabs/pads
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Condoms
  • Hair
  • Paper towels
  • Medications
  • Flushable kitty litter

One of the best ways to avoid clogging your bathroom sinks and shower drains is to buy hair catchers. These plastic or rubber devices do an excellent job of catching most large objects that might block your drains, especially human hair.

What Cleans a Drain?

Cleaning your drain isn’t tricky, but you should take great care with cleaning your plumbing system. Older plumbing systems are more sensitive and susceptible to damage, so avoid using any volatile substance to clear your clog. Your first step should be boiling water. Boiling water poured down your drain will melt any soap or fat that might be causing a clog, which should clear some of the mess in your pipes. However, if that doesn’t work, the next step is a drain snake. Drain snakes are relatively inexpensive tools you can find at your local hardware store. You run the snake down the drain and use it to pull out whatever is clogging you’re your pipes. Avoid using caustic drain cleaners to clear the clog. The chemicals are strong enough to dissolve your clog, but they can also dissolve the plumbing, which can cause more expensive problems later.

If your clog is deeper than a drain snake can go, or if several drains across your house are clogged, you likely have a problem with your main sewer line.

How Much Does It Cost to Clean Out a Drain?

Cedar City drain cleaning costs vary depending on the severity and location of the clog, but you can expect to pay anywhere from $85 to $800. The easier the clog is to locate, such as right under your kitchen sink, the less expensive the cleaning will be. However, sewer line clogs tend to be more involved and take much longer to clear.

Additionally, consider that the expense of your service will also depend on your plumbing company. Some companies charge by the hour while others provide flat-rate fees for specific services. The best way to determine how much your bill will be is to get an estimate. Our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Cedar City provides drain cleaning services for flat-rate fees, so you know exactly how much your bill will be with no surprise fees.
