What Do I Do When I Have a Clog?

Woman plunging a drainIf your drains are just slower than usual, you probably have the beginnings of a clog. In cases such as this, DIY efforts are most effective. For example, you can clear many bathroom sink or kitchen sink clogs by simply pouring boiling water into the drain and letting it sit. Most drains clog because of some combination of organic matter and fats, such as bacon grease or soap. The hot water liquefies these fats and allows them to release whatever organic matter (hair, vegetable fibers, etc.) they had been collecting in the clog.

If that doesn’t work, your next best bet is to snake your drain. You can snake your drain using an old wire hanger or by using an inexpensive drain snake from your local hardware store. Snaking a drain allows you to dislodge the clog and pull it back up and out of the drain, where you can dispose of it in the nearest trash can. Wearing a good pair of cleaning gloves or disposable gloves will keep any gunk off of your hands during the process.

If all these techniques fail, we recommend calling a licensed plumber as your next step, rather than trying any caustic drain cleaning chemicals. Drain cleaners work by using an extremely caustic liquid to eat through the clog; however, they can damage your drains if your plumbing system is old or if your pipelining is too worn away to prevent the drain cleaner from damaging the pipes. You also don’t want any caustic chemicals on your hands or in your eyes or lungs, as they can be hazardous.

How Much Does It Cost to Clean Out a Drain?

Drain cleaning costs can range from $100 to over $1,000. The most expensive type of drain cleaning process involves sewer line replacement, which can cost up to $25,000, depending on how complex the sewer system is, how deep the lines are, the pipe location, and the type of pipe used. However, for simple plumbing problems, like a clogged bathroom drain, the cost tends to be on the lower end of the scale.

Additionally, the expense of your drain cleaning service will depend on what type of plumber you choose. Plumbers who tend to charge by the hour will be more or less expensive because of their experience level. A master plumber will charge more per hour than a journeyman or an apprentice plumber. Plumbers that charge by the hour might also charge double or even triple their standard hourly fee if you need them after normal business hours, on the weekend, or during a holiday.

One of the reasons people love Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Yakima is our flat-rate fees. We don’t charge by the hour, and we don’t charge overtime if your job takes longer than we expect. What you see on your estimate is what you get since we don’t tack on any additional hidden fees.
