Why DIY Drain Cleaning is Risky
A DIY approach to drain cleaning can be risky. Using drain cleaning products, for instance, can be corrosive and harmful to drain lines. Even overdoing it with a plunger can be risky because of the potential for pushing debris further down without fully removing it.
Common Causes of Clog Issues
Causes include flushing wipes (baby and adult), feminine products, and other things that shouldn't be flushed, but there are many reasons why clogs can occur. Intrusive tree roots and buildups of grease and fat can also result in clogs. Other common culprits include food waste, mineral buildup, and structural damage. Be on the lookout for any of the following signs of a clogged drain:
- Odd drain sounds
- Foul drain smells
- Slow draining water
- Water puddles where drains are located
Our Drain Cleaning Process
Drain snaking may be all that's necessary when it comes to minor clogs or blockages, even if your top priority is just to quickly restore normal flow. However, if a significant blockage in your pipes necessitates more significant cleaning, we may recommend a powerful cleaning method called hydro jetting. After each cleaning, our technicians always perform a second inspection to confirm that optimal flow has been restored.
Hydro jetting is a powerful drain cleaning process done with extremely high-pressure water through a hose and specially designed nozzle. It ensures thoroughly clean drain lines since the process clears tree roots, scale, and other sources of blocked or clogged drains.
Once one of our trained pros thoroughly cleans a drain, they will perform a follow-up video inspection. If this reveals one or more leaks, they will repair these in a way that's as minimally disruptive as possible.
Drains need to work well for disposals to function correctly. This is also true for appliance drains. If either of these drains is clogged, the Plumbing One team will suggest and implement the appropriate solution.
If self-cleaning efforts are not enough to restore normal flow to your external downspouts, give our team a call. We will clear away leaves and other debris so that your downspouts work in harmony with your gutters to keep water off your roof.
Plumbing One is the “ONE” to call when you have a broken water service line. We can usually schedule your repair within a couple of days weather permitting. Depending on what type of failure your water service has, a fracture or cut we could possibly do a repair. Some of the older water services have faulty or failing materials which would constitute full replacement.
