Drain Cleaning and Sewer CleaningLet’s face it, eventually all plumbing systems develop painful clogs and there is simply no way to avoid them. Keep in mind, exerting too much force can permanently damage your pipes or fixtures in your home. Sometimes figuring out what’s wrong with your toilet, drain, or other plumbing-related area is half the battle.

How Do Our Plumbers Clear A Clog?

All our technicians will first inspect the sink drains which have a curved pipe, and that is connected to the short pipe that leads to the drain itself. With a large wrench, they typically loosen this pipe and remove it from the short drain pipe. Chances are, most of your clogs will be found in this pipe, which can be cleared out, put back together, and the problem will be solved. If that pipe is not the problem, the clog may be a bit farther down your pipeline. In that case, a stiff piece of wire called a Plumbers Snake will be inserted into the pipe in an effort to dislodge the clog, which will allow the water to flow once again. If none of these options seem to work, our technician will further inspect all possibilities that may lead to your clog, and is always prepared to stay as long as it takes to clear your clog the same day. Our technician may also leave a sample bottle of liquid cleaner such as Root-X or Bio-Clean behind, which you may use for future drain maintenance without harsh fumes and without damaging your plumbing.
