What Happens During Professional Drain Cleaning Sessions?
At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we avoid harmful chemicals and make sure that our team is fully qualified and trained to use snaking tools safely. Liquid drain cleaners provide a temporary solution and contain chemicals that eventually damage the inside of your pipeline through repeated use. Likewise, attempting to snake your drains yourself could prove disastrous if you use the wrong kind of snake or you break or fracture a pipe.
Professional drain cleaning services are methods used by expert plumbers to thoroughly clean the inside of the pipeline. Our professional services do not result in damage to the pipeline or drain. At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we specialize in rooter services, also known as professional drain cleaning, and only perform safe methods that provide lasting solutions, without damaging your property or pipes.
Before we do work on the drains at your property, we perform a professional inspection to determine the underlying cause of the clog. The inspection allows our technician to recommend the best solution for your plumbing issue and pinpoints the location of the clog. At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we use a small camera with hi-resolution capabilities to take a detailed look inside of your pipes. After the inspection, the technician will recommend the appropriate way to handle the drainage issue. Drain cleaning methods vary and include traditional snaking, power-rodding, and high-pressure water jetting. High-pressure water jetting is one of the most efficient and popular methods.
Why Hydro Jetting on Sewer Drain Pipes?
Hydro jetting is one of the safest and cleanest ways to clean a drain. It involves flushing the pipeline with a pressurized, high-powered stream of water. The water used during hydro jetting is powerful enough to cut through even the toughest of clogs, including tree root infiltration. During hydro jetting, a hose connected to a water tank and pressurizing machine is inserted into an existing access point to the plumbing.
This existing access point is called a cleanout and is how we avoid damage to the surrounding property while performing hydro jetting. After the water is pressurized, the technician turns it on and blasts it through the pipe, effectively clearing anything in its path. Our technicians are trained to be able to control the speed and pressure of the water, carefully adjusting it to handle the clog at your property.
Alternative Sewer & Drain Line Cleaning Solutions In Washington
We recommend high-pressure water jetting whenever possible, but can perform more traditional drain cleaning solutions, such as snaking and power-rodding. We never encourage our clients to attempt to snake their own drains, because using the wrong snake can result in serious damage to the pipeline. At Bob Oates, we employ the use of different snakes to handle different jobs appropriately.
Similarly, power-rodding involves putting a device into the drain to clear the clog. Unlike snaking, which pulls the source of the clog out or dislodges it, power-rodding uses small razors attached to the end of the rod, or snake, to cut through and break up clogs. Each of these drain cleaning methods has its benefits and can be used to eliminate tough blockages.
How Often Do The Drain Lines In My Home Need To Be Cleaned?
At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we recommend routine maintenance and inspections to all of our clients. The best way to avoid clogs and other plumbing emergencies is by regularly checking pipe conditions. All of the pipes in your home will eventually need maintenance, but routine cleanings and repairs can mean the difference between standing knee-deep in water and enjoying an uninterrupted schedule.
Over time, hair, grease, and debris build up, resulting in recurring clogs. Drains easily turn into catch basins for anything that shouldn’t be inside the pipeline. As debris snowballs, it becomes tougher and harder to break through. In addition to foreign objects going down the drain and greasy buildup, tree roots can break through pipes and create clogs that are extremely difficult to remove. Slow draining, backflow, overflow, and odor are all signs that a drain is clogged and could benefit from a professional inspection and cleaning.
