Common Causes of Blocked Drains

  • Hair buildup: Accumulation of hair in bathroom drains can lead to blockages over time.
  • Soap scum: Residue from soaps can combine with other substances, coating the walls of pipes and causing blockages.
  • Food waste: Kitchen sink drains can become clogged from food particles, especially when improper disposal methods are used.
  • Grease and fat: Pouring grease or fat down drains can lead to blockages as they solidify and adhere to the inside of pipes.
  • Foreign objects: Items like cotton swabs and small toys can accidentally fall into drains, contributing to blockages.
  • Mineral buildup: Minerals in hard water can accumulate in pipes, reducing their diameter and impeding water flow.
  • Tree roots: Tree roots can penetrate outdoor drains in search of water, causing blockages and damage.

Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning

If you’re unsure whether your drains are due for a thorough cleaning, there are several warning signs you can watch out for.

Your drains probably need to be cleaned if you’re noticing:

  • Slow draining: This is often the first sign of a clog. If water drains slower than usual from your sink, tub, or shower, it’s likely because of build-up in your pipes.
  • Frequent clogs: Finding yourself repeatedly dealing with clogs, even minor ones, can be a sign that there’s a larger issue at hand.
  • Unpleasant odors: If you’re noticing bad smells coming from your drains, it could be due to accumulations of food, grease, or other waste.
  • Gurgling sounds: Unusual noises like gurgling or bubbling when you use your sink can also indicate a need for drain cleaning.
  • Overflowing toilets: If your toilet overflows when you haven’t used it, or if it backs up regularly, this is a clear sign that your drains need attention.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it might be time to schedule an appointment with our drain cleaning team. With prompt care and attention from a trained professional, you can prevent costly repairs and ensure your home stays clean and functional.

Establish a Drain Cleaning Routine

Establishing a regular drain cleaning routine is a vital part of maintaining the health and longevity of your pipes. A good rule of thumb is to have your drains professionally cleaned at least once a year, or more frequently if you notice issues such as slow drainage or frequent clogs. Regular drain cleaning helps prevent build-up that can cause serious issues over time, such as blocked pipes or even damage to your home’s plumbing system.

In between professional cleanings, it’s important to practice good drain hygiene. Be mindful of what goes down your drains - avoid disposing of substances like grease or coffee grounds in your sink and use a drain grate to catch hair and soap scum in the shower. Regularly flush your drains with hot water to keep them clear, and consider using a mild, natural drain cleaner such as baking soda and vinegar to tackle minor clogs. Remember, prevention is key when it comes to maintaining healthy, functioning drains.

How the Professionals Clean Your Drains

While store-bought drain cleaning solutions rely on harsh and abrasive chemicals, professional drain cleaning involves using specialized tools and techniques to remove blockages and build-up in your pipes, restoring them to optimal function and avoiding further damage. 

Professional drain cleaning methods include:

  • Hydro jetting: This powerful technique uses high-pressure water to blast through clogs and scrub the inside of your pipes clean. It’s a gentle yet effective method that doesn’t damage your plumbing.
  • Drain snaking: This involves a flexible, coil-shaped tool known as a drain snake that we insert into your pipes to break up or retrieve clogs.
  • Video inspection: With this method, we use a camera to inspect the inside of your pipes and locate the source of your problem, allowing us to address it directly and efficiently.
  • Bio-cleaning: This eco-friendly method uses bacteria or enzymes that eat away at the gunk in your pipes, clearing blockages without harsh chemicals.

As drain cleaning professionals, we strive to provide solutions that are clean, fast, and convenient for our customers. We’ll make sure your drains are taken care of the right way using the best method for your needs and budget.

Common Answers To Your Questions

Have questions? We are here to help. Still have questions or can't find the answer you need? Give us a call at 636-538-5179 today!

  • How do I know if I need to replace a main water line?

    This is usually a matter of age and condition. If the pipes in your home are older than 50 years or so, you should be checking them regularly for signs of rust or corrosion. Corroded water lines need to be replaced right away.

  • What can I do about a leaky faucet?

    Often, a leaky faucet is caused by a corroded O-ring, gasket, or valve seal. Try shutting off the water and removing the faucet handle. You may be able to fix the problem by tightening the nut that holds all the internal parts in place. You may also want to try disassembling the faucet to inspect its components. If you notice a part that is broken, replacing that part can do the trick. If you continue having problems with a dripping faucet, give us a call.

  • Is there a way to prevent clogged drains in my house?

    Yes! First of all, don't put things down your drains that don't belong there: this includes hair, oil or grease, coffee grounds, hard food and egg shells. A drain stopper or filter can also stop larger materials from going down your drain and clogging it.
