Professional Drain Cleaning Done Right

We're a drain cleaning company that uses safe, effective methods to clear stubborn clogs and other obstructions in drain lines. Professional drain snaking is a common option that can be effective in a wide range of situations, even with tree roots. However, we may use other techniques if the situation calls for it.

What Are the Biggest Signs Your Drain May Be Clogged?

A drain that's clogged and backing up is definitely an emergency plumbing issue that should be reason enough to give us a call.

It's equally important to contact our experienced, licensed, and insured technicians if you notice any of the following clog-related symptoms:

  • Slow-draining sinks, tubs, showers, or floor drains
  • Water that backs up in nearby drains when another drain is used
  • A toilet that won't flush
  • Bad odors coming from drains
  • Clogs or backups that continue to happen even after initially resolving the problem

What Causes Clogged Drains?

Clogged drains often develop over time as grease, food particles, and other debris slowly accumulate and block water or sewage flow. Drains can also become clogged from tree roots that "sneak" into drain lines through tiny cracks. Other possible causes include:

  • 1 Flushing products or items not intended to be flushed
  • 2 Small objects getting into drains,
  • 3 Calcium and other minerals along pipe walls.

What Typically Happens During the Drain Cleaning Process?

An inspection is what we typically do first with drain cleaning in San Diego, CA, and neighboring areas. The results show where a clog or blockage is located and allow the overall condition of the pipe to be determined. If the goal is to quickly clear the drain, professional snaking or auguring is what we may recommend. This is done with the insertion of a flexible rod with a corkscrew-like head that clears away debris.

There may also be a need to perform a few plumbing repairs after a drain cleaning session if a post-cleaning inspection shows damage to the pipe. In some instances, we may use root destroyer treatments if a sewer line is clogged with intrusive roots.

How Do You Keep Your Drains Working Properly?

Avoid drain issues by being careful with how you use these drains. We recommend accomplishing this goal by having a can with a lid for grease and putting wastebaskets near areas where drains are used to encourage proper discarding of various items. In addition, cover or shield your drains, or use a grease trap, if appropriate.
