Frequently Asked Questions
How do you clean drains?
Cleaning drains involves removing the source of the drain clog, whether that source is hair, soap, or food particles. In some cases, clogs can be caused by tree root growth, which makes it much more difficult to remove. If tree roots are causing your drain clogs, the best thing to do is to contact a professional. However, for a typical clog, cleaning a drain without causing any damage involves snaking or hydro jetting your drain. Hydro jetting should be done by licensed and insured professionals.
What is a good homemade drain cleaner?
The best type of drain cleaner is a biological cleaner, which is a type of organism that eats away at biological material. These types of drain cleaners are not corrosive, and won’t destroy your pipes. However, the first thing you should do to try and clear a clog is to pour boiling water down your drain. Boiling water melts any oils or soaps in the pipe, which could dissolve the reason for a blockage. However, any other homemade drain cleaner could cause problems. For example, a common DIY tip is to use baking soda and vinegar to clean your drains; however, this solution can put too much pressure on your pipes and could cause them to rupture.
Is it safe to use chemical drain cleaners?
No, it’s best to assume chemical drain cleaners aren’t safe to use. We don’t recommend using chemical drain cleaners to clear a clog. Chemical drain cleaners are corrosive, meaning they eat away at the material causing the clog. However, unlike biological cleaners, chemical cleaners are corrosive enough to eat through the organic and inorganic substances in your drains, including the pipes themselves. Not only that, but having chemical drain cleaners in your household can be dangerous to your pets and children.
How much does it cost to clean out a drain?
The cost of drain cleaning in Salisbury depends on several factors, including the plumber you choose, the location of the clog, and the complexity of the clog. Prices can range from $100 to $400 or more, depending on what type of drain cleaning situation you have. For example, a simple clog in your bathroom sink might take less than an hour to solve and should only require one plumber to get the job done. That type of drain cleaning service will be less expensive than a sewer drain cleaning. If your main sewer line is clogged, it could involve clearing the line from the outside or by pulling a toilet to access the sewer line. This type of repair could necessitate more than one plumber, and it will take longer on average.
