To many property owners, a clogged or slow drain may seem like a minor issue. Many try to use hot water or drain cleaning chemicals to treat the problem. However, an untreated blocked drain opening or clogged pipe can lead to pipe damage or a total failure of your plumbing system.

Post-Work Inspection

After cleaning and repairing your clogged drain, our expert plumbers will inspect their work. We check the water flow from your faucets and drains to ensure we’ve removed any blockages or other issues.

How to Prepare for Professional Drain Cleaning

Before your technician arrives, make sure the area in question is accessible. For clogged bathroom drains, notify your technician of any standing water or other issues.

Many property owners attempt DIY fixes before calling in the experts. For example, many will use boiling water, baking soda, and consumer-grade drain cleaners to handle clogs or remove odors.

Let your plumber know if you have used these methods in an attempt to unclog your drain. This knowledge helps our technicians stay safe and determine the best method of clog inspection or removal during your services.

Preventing Clogged Drains

Whether it’s a tub drain, sink drain, or sewer drain, the best solution for clogs is prevention. To avoid costly plumbing bills, keep drain openings clean.

Additionally, avoid putting materials such as grease, food, or paper products into drain lines.
