Drain Cleaning

Clogged drains are a pain in the neck, often striking when we least expect them. The murky puddles forming during a shower, backed-up kitchen sinks, and the ultimate nightmare – an overflowing toilet – are enough to turn the most composed homeowners into a state of frustration and panic.

While plungers and drain snakes may temporarily alleviate the issue, they only offer momentary relief. For a lasting solution to the persistent problem of blocked drains, property owners should invest in periodic drain cleaning. At Proline Rooter, we use hydro-jetting technology to break down blockages, thoroughly scour the drains, and send the debris away.


Clogged Drains Are More Than an Annoyance

Clogged drains are a genuine household hazard. The common culprits behind this vexing issue include hair, soap scum, grease, food particles, mineral deposits, and even foreign objects accidentally flushed down the drain. 

When these substances accumulate over time, they constrict the flow of water, causing slow drainage, gurgling noises, and eventually complete blockages. The result is not only an inconvenience but also potential damage to your plumbing system, leading to expensive repairs.


Prevent Clogged Drains: Form Your First Line of Defense

By incorporating some simple but effective preventative measures into your household routine, you can significantly reduce the risk of clogs and the ensuing headaches:

  • Place drain strainers or stoppers in sinks, showers, and bathtubs to catch hair, food particles, and other debris before they enter the drain. Remove and clean them regularly before replacing them.
  • Grease should never be poured down the kitchen sink. Instead, let it cool and solidify, then dispose of it in the trash. Grease is a notorious clog inducer.
  • Only toilet paper and human waste should be flushed down the toilet. Items like paper towels, sanitary products, and foreign objects can lead to stubborn blockages.
  • Pouring hot water down the drain periodically can help dissolve soap scum and grease, preventing them from accumulating.

These preventative measures can go a long way in keeping your drains clear, but they do not eliminate the risk entirely. This is where drain cleaning comes in.

The Power of Hydro-Jetting Drain Cleaning

Debris can build up in your pipes over time. Painstaking preventative maintenance will slow down the buildup, but it won’t turn back the clock. To get rid of the accumulated gunk, you’ll need to clean the drains. Enter: hydro-jetting drain cleaning.

At Proline Rooter, we employ powerful water jetters to tear through even the most stubborn blockages. We can adjust the pressure to even break through dried concrete and tree roots! But our hydro-jetting drain cleaning begins with a live video inspection of the inside of the drains.

If the drains are damaged, then it’s best to repair or replace the affected pipes. Our local plumbers at Proline Rooter come with tools and parts to handle most of these issues on the same trip. Once the drains are found to be sturdy, we’ll blast away at the blockages and send the debris down the line.
