Signs That You Need Drain Cleaning
You aren’t just gonna wake up one morning with a text on your phone from your drains telling you they need to be cleaned. You’re gonna have to pay attention to them to know when to call a plumber. But you don’t have to know a lot about plumbing to be able to tell when your pipes need some TLC. Just keep an eye out for a few signs, and you’ll be able to stay on top of clogs.
Early signs of a clogged drain are smelly pipes, bubbling sounds when the water is going down, and slow draining sinks. A clog deeper down is gonna cause bigger problems. You’ll notice more than one tub or sink draining slowly. Your toilet might back up into the tub when you flush it. You might also have clogs that keep coming back. It doesn’t matter if the problem is small or big, you’re gonna get the same great treatment from Morris-Jenkins. We want your plumbing to work great and you shouldn’t have to settle for anything less.
Hiring the Pros
If you had a broken leg, you wouldn’t just stick a bandaid on it, right? Some problems can be taken care of at home. But for others, you need help from people who know what they’re doing and have the right tools. The occasional food clog or clogged toilet can be handled with a plunger. But most people don’t have the right tools to deal with tricky clogs.
You might be wondering about the drain cleaning liquid you’ve got stashed in the cupboard. What about the snake that came with it? The snake can grab a hair clog if it’s just a couple of inches down the drain. But clogs that are further down or that are made from grease are gonna need something more. Plus, chemical drain clearing products aren’t good for your pipes (or your family) and they’re not always that good at doing their job. It’s better to call a professional.
Cabling and Jetting at Morris-Jenkins
At Morris-Jenkins, we’ve got everything we need to get any type of clog or sludge out of your pipes. Our services are designed to keep clogs away. And the best part is, they’re not gonna hurt your plumbing like chemical drain cleaners. Here are the two methods we use for clogged drains in Harrisburg:
Drain Cabling: You might know them as “snakes” or “augers.” But our snakes are a little more than two-foot plastic cables. Ours can easily reach up to 75 feet. We use handheld or motorized cables to get rid of small tree roots, food, hair clogs, and more.
Hydro Jetting: Have you ever used a power washer to clean your driveway or to strip paint off of something? Imagine that same power, except several times stronger, on the inside of your pipes. If there is grease, sludge, slime, or algae sticking to the inside of your pipes, it’ll be gone in a flash. Hydro jetters are also strong enough to blast through large tree roots.
Not sure which service you’ll need? Don’t worry! We’ll do the hard work and let you know what we think. We’ll get our drain cameras down there to find out what’s going on. Then we’ll recommend a service.
