We Can Unclog any Drain – Large or Small
We know how inconvenient and messy plumbing repairs can be. Whether it’s a sink, toilet, tub, shower, garbage disposer, or sewer, our professional drain cleaning services will have things back to normal in no time. We have powered rods that can reach deep into a pipe to find the source of the problem. For smaller pipes, our sink rod goes 75 feet. For larger pipes of 3-4 inches in diameter, our main rod can reach 100 feet. With a power feed and cutting heads, these motorized rods can break up any clog, including roots, and get things flowing smoothly again.
Tips for Avoiding Drain Clogs
Here are some simple tips for homeowners to keep their plumbing trouble free.
- Disposal – Most homeowners don’t use enough water when using their disposal. That means that pieces of food, grease, etc. build up in the pipe. We suggest running a lot of water to flush your disposal once a month. The best way to do this is to plug the sink and fill it all the way up. If you have a double sided sink, plug both sides and fill them both all the way up. Then unplug them both at the same time and let the force of that water wash any leftover debris out of the pipes.
- Toilets – No matter what the product label says, “flushable” baby wipes should not be flushed. Sanitary wipes and baby wipes are the number one cause of clogged pipes that we see. We once pulled 34 baby wipes from one clogged pipe. It’s not your fault. The labels should not tell you these products are flushable when they clearly cause problems with clogging. To keep things running smoothly, the ONLY thing you should flush down your toilet is toilet paper.
- Kitchen and Bathroom Sinks/Tubs – To plunge a kitchen sink with two sides, you must plug one side to seal it or you will never get the vacuum you need to plunge effectively. Similarly, you must plug the overflow hole in bathroom sinks and tubs to get a good air seal for plunging them.
