Signs You Need a Drain Cleaning Service
Wondering if a drain cleaning service (sometimes called a rooter service) is right for your home? If you’ve noticed any of these signs, you might wanna give us a call!
- Slow-draining or backed up water. This is the most obvious sign your drain needs to be cleaned! Do you have multiple clogs in your home? If so, you probably have a clog in your main water line (instead of a secondary drain line).
- Gurgling or bubbling drains. Water shouldn’t normally make much noise when it’s going down your drain. If it does, that usually means it’s having to pass over or through a clog on its way down. It’s better to get these clogs cleared before the drain completely backs up!
- Foul odors coming from your fixtures. When you have a clog, food and waste that would normally be washed away instead gets stuck and sits there, stinking up your plumbing!
- Frequent clogs. Clogs happen. Whether it’s hair down your shower drain or too much toilet paper in your toilet, once in a while, things might back up.
That’s normal! But if your Gastonia home deals with clogs all the time, you should look into a more thorough drain cleaning to help keep the clogs at bay.
Do any of these sound familiar? You should give us a call! We’re here til midnight, and we’ve got the answer!
Stop! Don’t Do It Yourself!
Most DIY drain cleaning methods actually do more harm than good. Harsh chemicals like Drano corrode your pipes and can eventually lead to even bigger problems later on. When your drains are clogged or draining slow, you don’t need toxic chemical cleaners that’ll destroy your pipes—you need a professional to clean your drains! Luckily, our certified plumbers in Gastonia have the tools and the experience to do things the RIGHT way, without damaging your home’s plumbing.
Stop! Don’t Do It Yourself!
When you’re not a plumber, all these plumbing terms can be confusing. What’s the difference between a drain cabling and a drain jetting? Why should you use a drain camera? We’re here to clear things up (literally)!
When you call one of our plumbers out to clean your drains in Gastonia, they’ll use one of two methods:
Drain cabling: If your plumber decides drain cabling is the best option for your Gastonia home, they’ll use a drain cleaning machine called a “snake” or an “auger” to remove any clogs. These machines range from basic handheld models that remove sink drain clogs, or motorized ones that cut through stubborn sewer clogs. These machines are great for removing clogs caused by:
- Toilet paper
- Hygiene products
- Small tree roots
- Lawn debris
Hydro jetting: This method uses a hydro jetter, which is a machine that sprays a high-powered stream of water to cut through clogs. We usually use this on “FOG” clogs (clogs caused by fat, oil, grease, or other sludge). It’s also powerful enough to cut through clogs caused by dense tree roots!
Bonus: Drain Cameras! Our plumbing department even has the ability to take a close look at the inside of your pipes with a specialized little camera we can send down your drain. This is a great way to take a look at the state of your pipes if you’ve been having a lot of stubborn drain problems.
When you schedule a drain cleaning (aka a “rooter service”) with us, your plumber will assess the clog (size, location, material, everything!) to see what method would work best to get your water draining again. But don’t worry! Clogs are our specialty!
