Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Services

Slow Drains

When it comes to your kitchen sink or your bathroom sink when they start to slow down and are no longer free-flowing with water, then that is a good sign that you have a blockage somewhere in your pipe system.

Foul and Unpleasant Smells

A lot of things get drained into our sinks. Some things are drain safe, but things like food will lead to a blockage. When the materials start to decompose, they are going to give off a bad odor that you are going to smell bad fast. Any odd smells should be dealt be immediately before they are a health risk.

Overflowing Toilets

If or when you have a toilet that will not flush the right way and that leads to it overflowing, that’s a good sign that you might have a major clog. You know that you need a pro when it comes time to use a plunger to fix the problem and it does not help.

Water Backing-Up

Water cannot flow down the pipes if they are clogged. Instead, it comes back up the drains. If you forget and leave your tap running, the backflow from that action can and will cause severe damage to your home.

Sewer Drain Cleaning With Rooter and Hydro Jetting

A rooter is basically an electric power auger. It is a large cable, which is moved through underground pipes to clear virtually any blockage, from tangled tree roots to accumulated gunk.

A hydro jet is a specialized pressure tool designed to clean blocked drains. A hydro jet produces a powerful stream that can break up regular buildup, separate grease, and take care of mineral deposits. Even though a hydro jet has enough power to cut through tree roots, our technicians use a rooter machine to make sure they are cleared correctly.

Should Drains Be Cleaned Regularly?

A lot of homeowners only think about their drains when they’re draining slowly or if they’re clogged. However, annual drain cleanings and maintenance will keep odors, emergencies, and damages at a minimum.

What is Water Hydro Jetting?

A water hydro jet sends is ideal for removing grease clogs. It has high-pressurized water shooting through a nozzle at the end of a hose, which is inserted into the drain line.

Using a traditional snake, auger, or drain cleaning machine typically has no value in breaking down grease clogs. One thing to think about is that a sewer drain cleaner has a blade on it. When it comes to putting that down the drain to clean it out you might just be spinning the contents inside the pipe around and not undoing the stoppage. This will have no effect on removing the clog if this is to happen. In these cases, we recommend a water jet.
