Drain line cleaning is something that should be done regularly and correctly to avoid major drain line repair work or even drain line replacement. Clogging is a very common problem for commercial and residential buildings alike. These clogs are often minor issues that are easily resolved with commercially available chemicals or even baking soda and vinegar combinations. Sometimes, however, these clogs are more serious and difficult to deal with. Extended draining times from sinks, toilets and tubs, as well as backup and eventually ruptured pipes are all dangers of clogs. Deeper, more obtrusive problems will require a thorough, professional drain line cleaning.
Our certified team brings every tool that they might need with them to the job. This saves you time and therefore money, especially in time-sensitive emergency situations. The sewer snake is one of these drain line cleaning tools that can solve up the vast majority of clogs. The tool extends itself deep into the drain, allowing our plumbers to handle even the furthest clogs and break them up without having to dig into your property. This saves time and money, and is often the simplest answer, and having a trained professional use the proper tools is the fastest way to ensure that your problem is gone for good.
What to do when your drain is clogged?
You should diagnose if your clog is to the main sewer line or just a single drain. Check whether water is backing up in sinks, toilets and other drains around your house, or just in one.
We offer emergency drain cleaning, as well as drain repair, which will take place once we arrive. In the meantime, now that you know which drain(s) are clogged, turn off the water access to the drain. This will prevent any water damage from happening until our team arrives.
