What is drain cleaning plumbing?

Having clogged drains is an unfortunate part of life, caused predominantly by organic material such as soap, food or mineral deposits that build up over time. Sometimes it’s even tree roots!

Clogged drains are not only annoying but, further to that, they can be hazardous to you and your family’s health, and if left unchecked can lead to costly property damage.

Drain cleaning plumbing focuses specifically on unclogging blocked drains using professional methods that will fix the problem and also improve the overall health of your plumbing system.

When might you need drain cleaning?

Whilst cleaning your drains yourself may be effective for handling an errant sink or toilet on occasion, if you find yourself subject to frequent or multiple clogs then it is time to call in a professional. Signs you might be suffering from clogged drains are:

Slow draining sinks
Toilets overflowing
Foul-smelling odors
Water is backing up in your sewer line

It’s worth noting that prevention is always better than cure, so most plumbers recommend a periodical professional drain cleaning to preserve the health of your system.

Can’t I just treat it myself?

Continuing to treat the issue(s) yourself will only result in you damaging your plumbing system as regular chemical cleaners will corrode your drains and pipes and in most cases fail to completely remove the clog.

Why professional is better

Professional plumbers such as ourselves are adept at cleaning all manner of drains, whether that be in the kitchen, basement or bathroom.

We use a specialized drain rooter device, known in the industry as a drain or plumbers snake. Don’t worry it’s not a basilisk like in Harry Potter, although that would be cool, simply it’s a long thin cable that will break apart clogs pipe as it’s fed down the pipes, safely unclogging the drain.
