Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
Here are some signs that indicate you may need drain cleaning:
- Slow Drainage: Water draining slowly in sinks, showers, or tubs.
- Foul Odors: Unpleasant smells from drains, especially after using plumbing fixtures.
- Gurgling Noises: Gurgling sounds when running water or flushing the toilet.
- Frequent Clogs: Dealing with frequent clogs in drains.
- Water Backup: Water backing up into sinks, tubs, or showers.
- Standing Water: Puddles around floor drains or in the basement.
- Fruit Flies or Drain Flies: Presence of small flies around drains.
- Multiple Clogged Fixtures: More than one plumbing fixture experiencing issues.
- Changes in Toilet Bowl Water Level: Fluctuating water level in the toilet bowl.
- Age of Plumbing System: Older home or lack of recent drain cleaning.
It's important to address these signs promptly to prevent further damage to the plumbing system. Consulting a professional plumber for inspection and cleaning is recommended for persistent or severe drain issues.
A powersnake works by using a machine with a flexible steel cable or snake that moves through your pipes with an attached blade. The blade's purpose is to break up blockages inside your pipes. Our powersnake is almost always used initially for clogged drains because it's a quick and inexpensive way to clean out a clogged pipe.
Our water jetting system breaks through sludge and debris, penetrates and destroys grease, blasts out hardened scale, and crushes roots. After our water jetting, your drains will be so clean they would be mistaken for new. Our powerful, high pressure water jetting is the right choice for toughest clogs and most persistent blockages. A standard mechanical snake or rooter service may only clear a small part of the block opposed to water jetting completely clearing the drain. Water jetting is essentially power washing your drain lines. Choosing to water jet your drain is a long term solution opposed to a quick fix.
With the right product, which will depend on the cause of the blockage. If the clog was caused by hair, soap, food, grease or other organic waste, you will want to use a bacteria and enzyme product. Use a degreaser if the clog was caused by oil, grease or fats. If tree roots were the cause of your drain blockage, then you will want to use a tree root inhibitor.
