Clogged Drain Cleaning
The clogged drains in Phoenix that we are typically called out to unclog and clean are due to many reasons. Over time is natural is for there to be some build up in the drains and pipes throughout your home. Your drain passes through food particles, fat that runs through the drain as a liquid and soap that soaks into all the gunk and lays on the pipes walls. This is just some of what is being ran through the clogged sink drain in your home, we haven’t even mentioned the hair and other mess that your bathroom drains get to deal with.

Phoenix Drain Cleaning Service
Clearing a clogged drain is usually a pretty quick, affordable and easy process. Pricing will usually depend on how thick or serious of a clog there is. In most cases our plumbers typically are able to unclog everything by using a snake to clean the drain. Our prices may vary based on the drain location as there can be a big difference in accessibility when comparing clogged kitchen drains and clogged bathroom drains to say a backed up laundry drain.
A serious clogged drain in need of cleaning may not always be solved by using a snake on the drain. At times we need to clear the buildup with a high pressure water jet to remove the stoppage and grease. It’s important that your plumber discusses your options and properly diagnosis the severity of the clog to determine the most effective and lasting fix for your drain.
If more than one drain line is clogged, this usually points to a stoppage in your main sewer line. A task that is a little more time consuming and can become interesting on older homes. With main line stoppages we can use our state of the art sewer line camera inspection to locate the exact location of the stoppage to determine the best route for repair.
Preventing Clogged Drains
Once we have cleaned your drain it’s going to be important to take some steps to prevent the drain from getting backed up again. Don’t pour any fats, oils or grease down the drain. When these are sent down the drain in a hot liquid form they cool and stick to the pipes closing the access for water and will eventually cause another clog.
We recommend using a drain screen in tubs and showers to catch the hair and other material that may make it’s way down the drain during use. Our plumbers will always answer questions and discuss more ideas to prevent needing us to come out again to clear your clogged drains.
