Drains clog over time. In kitchens, greases, soaps and more build up on the walls of the pipes and cause a blockage. In bathrooms, showers, tubs and sinks become clogged with hair and soap, and toilets can become clogged with toilet paper. When this happens, you need the help of a plumber experienced in drain cleaning.
While there are products on the market that offer a do-it-yourself remedy, these oftentimes offer only a temporary fix and can cause bigger problems later. Our technicians have the proper tools to rid your drains of their clogs without damaging your pipes or the environment.
WARNING WHEN CLEARING A DRAIN:
Chemicals are not designed to put in a drain when it is clogged. Liquid plumber is just house hold bleach at double the cost and can be used when the drain is clear to break down any grease build up and should be put in the drain regularly. It does not do much to rid heavy lined pipes of grease. One reason is the outer surface of the grease many times is layered with calcification.
Drano is also not advised to use in a backed up sink. It can blow up due to the instant chemical heat reaction when it hits water. This has been known to cause explosions that have disfigured and or discolored peoples faces. The instant chemical heat reaction can also melt pipes causing a much larger job repair.
Acid should never be used in a drain even though it is sold in some plumbing supply stores.
A bathroom sink or shower usually is clogged by hair. The only way to unclog a drain that has hair is to remove the hair. Hair does not break down even with acid.
