How Do You Remove Buildup from Drainpipes?
Fats, Soaps, & Oils
Drains will get easily clogged over time if a regular supply of grease and soap is poured into the sink. For example, many people will run hot water into the sink so they can pour cooking oil or bacon grease down the garbage disposal. However, hot water is the key. Once the hot water stops running, the fat and soap solidify again, getting trapped with whatever other residue is in the pipes, such as hair and food particles. Once enough of this builds up, it will catch other debris, creating a clog.
The best way to deal with this type of clog is:
- Throw fats and oils into the trash
- Cover bathroom sink and shower drains with hair catchers
- Pour boiling water down your drains every two weeks to flush out any soap or oils
Drains get clogged for multiple reasons, but one of the things that people can’t prevent from happening is calcium buildup. Most homes or businesses without water filters will have hard water, meaning water containing minerals. As you continue running hard water down drains, mineral deposits start to build up. You can begin to see evidence of this if you notice white substance on your faucets and around your drain. If you have copper pipes, you shouldn’t have enough of a mineral buildup to cause an issue. There isn’t a way for you to altogether remove mineral deposits in your pipes. The best way to guard against it is to get a water filter or water softener system, which filters the minerals out. Alternatively, you could replace your pipes with sturdy plastic. Plastic resists mineral buildup.
How Much Does It Cost to Clean a Drain?
The cost of drain cleaning will depend on different factors, including the drain’s location and the severity of the clog. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $85 to $800 for drain cleaning. Less expensive drain cleaning jobs tend to be quick and easy to access, such as a clog under a kitchen sink. However, clogs that are harder to reach or that require more hardy technology to solve will be more expensive, since they’re more time consuming and might require more expertise.
Some drains can be cleared yourself, using a clothes hanger or drain snake from your local hardware store. However, other drain clogs are harder to reach with a drain snake. If your main sewer line is clogged, you should call an experienced, licensed plumber to clear the issue. Tree roots tend to be the cause of some clogs in main sewer lines, and removing the clog and repairing the damage takes an experienced plumber.
Hydro Jetting Technology
Even if you only suspect a drain issue, we’ll use modern equipment to assess the situation. We’ll employ HydroScrub® technology to remove clogs from within your drains and sewer systems. It’s a process where we use controlled water pressure and volume to unclog drains as an alternative to more invasive methods.
