It’s best to avoid caustic drain cleaning chemicals when your sink or bathtub is clogged. While they can be effective, the substances are usually so corrosive that they can damage older pipes, leading to expensive water damage repairs. Both drain snakes and hydro jetting services clear the clog in a way that avoids damaging your plumbing system. Additionally, hydro jetting has the added benefit of cleaning your plumbing thoroughly, which can eliminate any unpleasant odors in kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Why Do Drains Clog?
Even the most vigilant property owners will experience a drain clog now and again. However, if you’re not using a hair catcher in your sink or bathtub, you’re more likely to experience a clog every month or so. Debris accumulates over time and catches on substances like soaps and fats in the drain. Hair is the most common cause of clogs because it can form a ball or cork in the pipe that eventually prevents water from draining effectively. However, other clogs can develop because of incorrect substances going doing down a drain.
Avoid flushing the following objects and substances down a drain:
- Coffee grounds
- Paper towels
- Feminine hygiene products
- Cotton swabs
- Cotton balls
- Dental floss
- Cat litter
How Much Does It Cost to Clean Out a Drain?
The cost of drain cleaning near you in Oakland, CA, depends on several factors, including the plumbing company you choose, the clog’s location, and the complexity of the clog. For example, fixing a bathroom sink might take under an hour and only requires one plumber to repair. However, fixing a clog in the main sewer line might require two or more plumbers, especially if they need to replace a pipe in your yard.
Drain cleaning in Oakland ranges from $100 to $400, and that number can vary depending on if your plumber charges by the hour or charges a flat-rate fee. Typically, plumbers who charge by the hour will charge double or triple their regular fee if you need them to work after normal business hours, during the weekend, or on a holiday. Additionally, if your clog is more complicated, your bill will increase the longer the plumber takes.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing of The Oakland-Berkeley Area will charge an upfront, flat-rate fee for your drain cleaning in Oakland, CA, and we don’t charge overtime fees. No matter how long your repair takes, your bill will remain the same.
