Solutions for Kitchen, Bathroom, & Floor Drains

A complex residential plumbing system has a multitude of components collaborating to channel clean water into a home and wastewater out of it. Your home has drains running throughout various spaces, and each drain performs a specific purpose. Bathroom sinks, showers stalls, bathtubs, and toilets work with drains transporting wastewater and solid waste out of a home. Kitchen sinks, dishwashers, and other essential fixtures and appliances also depend on drains to ensure wastewater flows to a sewer line. Even the floor drains in a basement, garage, and laundry room prevent water from pooling in these spaces and causing various damaging issues. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Jacksonville’s service professionals has extensive training and years of experience performing comprehensive plumbing solutions, including emergency and routine drain cleaning services to resolve household clogged drains.

When Do I Need to Call a Service Professional?

Virtually all homeowners eventually face clogged drains in their homes, but there are simple techniques to resolve clogs before getting in touch with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Jacksonville for help. If your sink drains slowly, you can pour boiling hot water down the drain after letting most or all the water drain. This DIY method effectively clears clogs consisting of hardened grease and oil. If hot water doesn’t work, you can try to remove the obstructive material using a plunger and drain snake. After plunging the drain in your sink and pulling the clogged material near the drain opening, you can pull out the material with a drain snake. If neither of these methods works, your clog may be too deep in your plumbing system to remove using do-it-yourself solutions. Having a service professional clear your drain is your best choice if it still backs up or drains slowly.

Should I Perform My Own Drain Cleaning?

You should always leave plumbing services like draining cleaning to professional service specialists. It might seem more cost-effective to get online or go to a hardware store and purchase a do-it-yourself drain-cleaning cleaning solution, but the tools and chemicals you buy at these stores can damage your plumbing system. The resulting damage can require expensive repairs to fix your pipes and drains and restore their condition. Mr. Rooter Plumbing ofJacksonville always uses the best equipment, tools, and industry-trusted techniques to perform this staple plumbing service. You can trust us to perform quick residential drain cleaning services without risking your plumbing's condition or performance.

What Drain Cleaning Methods Do You Use?

Our drain cleaning method depends on what drain is clogged, how serious the clog is, and where the clog is located. Our clogged drain cleaning methods are:

Enzymatic Drain Cleaner

We use a safe, enzymatic drain cleaner to destroy dangerous bacteria and break up clogs in your pipes. This drain cleaner will not damage your pipes, is not bad for the environment, and can even prevent new clogs from forming.

Rooter Work

We will use our powerful drain rooter for stubborn clogged drains or clogs deep within your pipes. We can extend the cable hundreds of feet into your pipes and break apart clogs caused by dirt, leaves, tree roots, soap scum, fat, oil, grease, hair, waste, and other debris.

Hydro Jetting Services

Our HydroScrub® drain cleaning services can remove decades of buildup from your pipes. We use powerful, pressurized water jets to blast away hair, grease, soap scum, mineral deposits, dirt, and more. This debris is then flushed down the pipe into the city’s sewer system.

How Often Do I Need Sewer Drain Cleaning?

It depends on how old your sewer line is, whether you live in a rural or urban area, how often you have issues with your sewer line, and how many people live in your household. In general, we recommend sewer drain cleaning every two years. If you notice any of these signs of a sewer drain clog, you should call our team for drain cleaning:

  • Dirty water backing up into the toilet, shower, or bathtub
  • Washing machine backups
  • Slow drains
  • Gurgling sounds coming from drains
  • Foul odors coming from drains
  • Frequent or multiple clogged drains or a clogged drain and a clogged toilet
  • Flooding in your basement or yard
  • An increase in pests or rodents around your house
  • The sudden appearance of lush green grass in your yard
  • Marshy pools of water in your yard

What Is the Best Residential Drain Cleaner I Can Use Myself?

Chemical drain cleaners don’t always work on stubborn clogs deep in pipes. You can use a chemical sink drain cleaner for slow drains, but clogged bathtub or shower drains are often caused by hair and soap scum, and most store-bought drain cleaners are ineffective. Chemical drain cleaners can eat away at your pipes and cause holes or leaks, and they are also bad for the environment. It’s best to take proactive, preventive measures to protect your drains by using a bacterial drain cleaner and scheduling regular drain cleaning services from our professionals.

When Should I Call a Professional for Drain Cleaning Services?

  • Very slow drainage in sinks, showers, or bathtubs
  • Overflowing toilets.

  • Standing water around the shower, washing machine, bathtub, or sink drain
