Signs You Need Clogged Drain Cleaning
If you have already tried everything to clear your clogged drains, you need residential clogged drain cleaning. If a clogged pipe drain cleaner isn't working, and you've tried plunging the drain without luck, you probably have a stubborn clog. Letting it sit in your pipes too long will not only inconvenience you as you won't be able to use your plumbing, but it may also damage the pipes. Here are some of the signs you need professional clogged drain cleaning:
- Water is backing up into your sink, toilet, shower, or tub.
- Your drains are slow or there are pools of water over the drains.
- Your drains smell like rotten food, mold, mildew, or sewage.
- You keep finding insects, roaches, or small rodents in your sink.
- Weird noises are coming from your drains or pipes.
- You have a fruit fly or drain fly problem.
- Your toilets keep clogging and overflowing no matter what you do.
- You can't clear the clogged drain with a clogged pipe drain cleaner or a plunger.
What’s Included in Our Clogged Drain Cleaning Services
Our clogged drain cleaning services are guaranteed to get your plumbing working again. We can use any of these methods on your clogged drains, including drains you weren't able to clear yourself:
- Hydro Jetting Services - Our hydro jetting services use a highly pressurized water stream to forcefully break apart a clog. Once it is broken up, the water flushes the debris through the pipes to the city's sewer line. Our hydro jetting services can break apart decades of built-up debris coating the walls of your pipes.
- Drain Rooter Services - If a clog is deep within the pipes or is caused by tree roots, leaves, or rocks, we may use drain rooter services. We'll feed a motorized cable as far as 150 feet into your plumbing to break apart tree roots, food waste, toilet paper, and other bathroom trash and grease.
- Plumbing Snake or Auger - A plumbing snake or drain auger is a small cable that rotates as we thread it through your drain into your pipes. Once we get to the clog, we use a hook at the end of the cable to break apart the clog or pull things like hair and debris back up through the drain. Typically, we use this method on a clogged shower or tub drains and toilets.
Using a Clogged Pipe Drain Cleaner & a Plunger
Before calling us, you can use a clogged pipe drain cleaner or a plunger to clear a clogged drain. Here are some tips on how to do this before getting in touch with our service professionals:
- Don't use a chemical drain cleaner on a toilet, tub or shower drain, or garbage disposal.
- Don't pour a chemical drain cleaner into a sink or tub with standing water. The drain cleaner can splash up on your face and cause burns or skin irritation. It's also less likely to work in standing water, as it can't get into the pipes where it's needed most. Plus, if it sits in the sink, tub, or pipes without being flushed down, it can cause damaging corrosion to the pipes and plumbing fixtures.
- Don't use a plunger on a clogged shower or tub drain. It's likely clogged with hair and soap, and a plunger won't affect the clog deep in the drain. You'll need to use a plumbing snake or drain auger.
- When plunging a toilet, use an accordion-style plunger. Put the end of the plunger into the toilet hole and plunge very forcefully up and down for at least two or three minutes. Keep repeating this until the water goes down. If this doesn't work, you need professional clogged drain cleaning.
- Don’t plunge a drain that has drain cleaner in it. Again, this could cause the drain cleaner to splash into your face or eyes.
- When plunging a sink, use a cup plunger. Fill the sink with enough water to cover the top of the plunger, then place the plunger directly over the center of the drain. Plunge up and down forcefully for two or three minutes, and then remove the plunger to see if the water goes down. If it hasn't, repeat the process until the drain flows again.
