What’s a Drain Cleaning Service?

July 01, 2022

A professional drain cleaning is one of the best things you can do for your drain lines and yard drains. It’s quick, easy, and gives immediate results. Plus, drain cleanings can help to prevent more serious drainage issues in the long run. But what’s the difference between a professional drain cleaning service and a DIY clean? And what can homeowners expect from a visit with the pros? We’ll explain below.

DIY Vs. Professional Drain Cleanings

When you think of a drain cleaning, you probably picture a bottle of chemicals that you purchase at the store and then pour down your drain. These chemicals aren’t always effective. In some cases, they can actually damage your pipes! Professionals not only use higher quality drain cleaners, but they also use additional tools to remove debris and make your pipes more effective.

Why Call a Professional?

A professional drain cleaning has a few different benefits. While at-home drain cleaners might loosen blockages, many homeowners are still left with slow drains or pipes. A licensed technician can remove these blockages for good and fully restore your pipes. Professional cleanings are also a way to eliminate stubborn odors that are coming from your sink, bathtub, or toilet.

What To Expect

During a drain cleaning service, a licensed technician will use a variety of tools to clean and unclog your drains. Sometimes, this includes using a high-pressure machine to remove excess buildup or grease that is coated on the inside of your pipes. Afterwards, they can also use cameras to inspect the drains, checking for issues that could indicate a bigger problem. Your licensed technician will be able to explain their findings and go over any recommendations. The entire process is an easy and thorough way for homeowners to know exactly what is going on with their drain lines.

Other Services You Might Need

In addition to drain cleaning, camera inspections are also highly recommended to homeowners that have frequent clogs or stoppages. A camera inspection is the only way to visually check the inside of your pipes. Additionally, some homeowners might need a pipe repair, replacement, or re-piping service to fix larger piping issues.
