Signs of a Clogged Drain
If you brushed your teeth this morning and heard the water gurgling all the way down the drain, that might be your first hint that something is up. You may be tempted to ignore those little signs, but problems usually start out easy to fix and get worse as time goes by. Gurgling pipes are just one way to tell that you need a plumber to take a look at your drains. You might also notice sinks that take a long time to drain, stinky pipes, or drains that keep clogging.
If you’re noticing problems in more than one drain, that’s a sign that you should call right away for drain cleaning. That could mean there’s a problem in the main line. Those can get messy fast, so it’s not something to put off!
DIY vs. Professional Clog Removal
When you get a clog, you might be wondering if it’s something you can fix yourself. But unless you can get it out with a plunger, we always recommend having a professional do it. Liquid drain cleaners have corrosive chemicals that eat away at clogs. But these chemical reactions can corrode or melt your pipes, too. They’re also not very safe to have around kids or pets, and they don’t always fix the problem. Our techniques are safe and gentle for pipes, and they’re sure to work every time.
Drain Services at Morris-Jenkins
We get rid of pesky clogs in two different ways, hydro jetting or drain cabling. We’ll recommend a method depending on where the clog is and what it’s made out of. Here are the two services we offer at Morris-Jenkins.
Drain Cabling: Food, hair, hygiene products, and toilet paper clogs are gonna be a job for our drain cabling services. We can even get small roots with a snake or auger. If there’s good access and the clog isn’t further than 75 feet, we’ll only charge $77 to come and clean your pipes. Usually, this is plenty for average clogs! Plus, Priority AdvantageⓇ Members get this service for free!
Hydro Jetting: Sometimes you can get thick roots that invade your plumbing. Grease and oil can get trapped over time, and they can cause clogs that are too tricky for a snake. That’s when you’ll need the next level of drain clearing. Hydro jetters use high-powered water to get rid of clogs. They’re even stronger than a pressure washer, and they can clear away everything. Your pipes are gonna be just as clean as when they first went in.
