What Causes A Clogged Drain?
Most of the time, tree roots grow into sewer lines as a result of cracks or shifts in the original sewer main pipes. Additionally, kitchen drains may clog because of food or oils and grease congealing in the drains. One everyday tip we recommend for preventing build-up is clearing your plate of food into the trash before cleaning it off into the kitchen sink. Furthermore, when using your garbage disposal, run the water for an extra minute or so to help wash off excess food debris.
Another major cause of clogged drains in households is hair. When you shower, hair winds up down the drain, and this will create clogs that can extend several feet within your pipes.
Drain Cleaning FAQ
Before scheduling an appointment with a plumbing professional, we understand that you may have more questions about the whole process and expense of cleaning and unclogging your drains. Here are some of the main questions we receive from new and returning customers!
How much do plumbers typically charge to unclog a drain?
The cost of drain cleaning and clearing main sewer lines mostly depends on the cause and scale of the clog and build-up. Schedule a visit with one of our plumbing professionals to receive a same-day quote! For larger, more costly drain cleaning and unclogging projects, we offer financing options.
How does a plumbing professional repair a slow draining sink?
Unless your drain is clogged with a build-up of hair, one DIY unclogging method we recommend is pouring 1/2 cup of baking soda down your drain, followed by a full tea kettle of hot, boiling water. If the clog and slow draining persist, it's time to contact a plumbing professional to inspect your drains, pipes, and main lines.
What's the average cost of hiring a professional plumber?

Safe Methods and Eco-Friendly Drain Cleaners
Plumbing professionals are trained, certified, and insured to use industrial-strength equipment such as motorized drain augers and hydro-jetters to unclog drains and clear debris from your main lines and pipes. Motorized drain augers, also known as drain snakes, are more powerful than the manual drain snakes that can be purchased from hardware stores, and hydro-jetters are high-pressure hoses that use water to clean your drains and pipes.
When Do I Need A Drain Cleaning Expert?
It’s always important to contact a plumbing expert as soon as you notice any issues with your drains or pipes. This will prevent issues that require more costly repairs further down the line. Here are some of the main indicators for when you should contact your local plumbing professionals for an inspection!
If you see water bubbling back into a sink, shower, or tub even, it means the drain does not have a clear path and, in some cases, can even be disconnected.
If you notice standing water in your household’s water appliances, this means there’s a major clog, seen or unseen, that needs to be cleared to unblock the drain.
Empty or Overflowing Toilet:
Blockages in your pipes and drains can cause shortages or surpluses of water depending on whether the plumbing is ingoing or outgoing. Because your toilet tank and bowl are connected to the same source as the rest of your water appliances, it can be affected by a clogged drain pipe in the house, requiring immediate service.
The most common clogs are caused by the build-up of food, organic waste, or other materials that you might not be able to see but can smell.
Low Water Pressure:
Some clogs don’t occur in just exit pipes and end up affecting other parts of your plumbing system like faucets or showerheads. This typically caused by a build-up of hard water minerals.
More common plumbing issues are slow drains because the clog is typically not visible, being caused by a build-up of debris and residue deep within your pipes.
