Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning
While chemical drain cleaners may seem like a convenient solution, these products contain harsh chemicals that can damage your pipes.
Professional drain cleaning not only effectively removes clogs but also avoids these risks, protecting your drain and sewer lines and ensuring the safety of your home and family.
Turn to the professionals if you’re experiencing:
- Slow drainage: If you notice water taking longer than usual to drain from sinks, showers, or tubs, it could indicate a clogged drain that requires professional cleaning.
- Recurring clogs: Frequent clogs in your drains, even after attempting DIY solutions, may indicate a more serious underlying issue that only professional drain cleaning can effectively address.
- Multiple clogged fixtures: If several plumbing fixtures in your home are experiencing simultaneous blockages, it suggests a more significant issue within your main drain line that necessitates professional drain cleaning.
Drain Cleaning Tools
It’s crucial to leave drain cleaning to the professionals because they can effectively and safely handle even the toughest clogs.
We can use any of the following tools to restore proper drainage:
- Video pipe inspection is a professional method that uses a camera to locate clogs deep within your pipes.
- Plungers can be used by professionals and homeowners. They create suction to dislodge clogs in sinks, showers, and toilets.
- Drain snakes are also suitable for both professionals and DIY enthusiasts. They feature a long, flexible cable that is inserted into drains to dislodge and pull out clogs.
- Drain augers are primarily professional tools. They break up and extract stubborn clogs that are deeply embedded within pipes.
How To Avoid Clogged Drains
Keep your drains flowing smoothly with preventative measures:
- Dispose of grease and cooking oils in a separate container rather than pouring them down the drain.
- Install drain screens to catch hair, food particles, and other debris before they have a chance to cause a clog.
- Schedule routine drain cleaning to keep your drains in optimal condition.

Just bought my house literally a week ago and have already met 3 of your wonderful technicians (2 heating and 1 plumbing). They are polite and personable, and I feel like I can trust that they are doing what is best for my home… not just for the company’s bank account. That is difficult to find in any type of Service Company. Thank you!
Josh was wonderful. We just bought a house that needs a lot of work, and the heating systems were no exception. He looked everything over and gave me several options for the amount of work that needs to be done. I felt he was honest and sincere in his diagnosis of my many issues, and in trying to figure out the best options, while still remaining economical. He was very polite and personable as well. Thanks Josh!
