5 Common Drain Cleaning Services You May Need

Emergency drain cleaning services can cost you a lot. In some scenarios, you’ll have to use these services, though.

What can you expect when hiring a drain cleaning specialist? Whether it’s for an emergency scenario or regular maintenance, you’ll want to know how they’ll deal with your plumbing.

Keep reading to learn about common drain cleaning services, how they’ll benefit you, and when to request them.

1. Hydro Jetting: Long-lasting

Drain cleaning professionals will use a jet nozzle to blast your pipes with high-velocity water pressure. These systems operate at pressures as low as 4,000 pounds per square inch (PSI) up to 60,000 PSI.

This high water pressure will blow through your pipes, removing accumulated contamination, pipe coating materials, and dirt buildup. Some advantages of using this service include:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • More mobility
  • Affordable
  • Great for preventative maintenance

While many have proved that store-bought chemicals are safe for your drains, they can cause more problems than they solve in some scenarios. That’s because drain cleaners are acidic, which means they’ll eat away at your plumbing.

Over time, you may encounter leaks.

Hydro jetting may not be your best solution if you have an older plumbing system. The high PSI may further damage your home’s piping. Thus, you’ll want to explore alternatives like spin casting.

2. Spin Casting: Great for Serious Blockages

While hydro jetting serves many purposes, it isn’t a universal situation. For older homes and for dealing with debris like tree branches, spin casting is a better alternative. 

Unlike traditional pipe snaking, spin casting uses chain knockers. Instead of poking holes in your blockage, these knockers will expand to hug your pipes’ walls and spin. When using spin casting, you’ll give your pipes and their walls a thorough cleaning.

3. Preventative Drain Maintenance

You can take steps to maintain your drains and prevent them from needing servicing. For instance, you can flush your drains with hot water or a DIY cleaning solution weekly.

Even if you don’t have noticeable issues, you should consider hiring a professional drain cleaning service to clean your drains yearly.

While a professional cleans your drains, they can check your plumbing for anything unusual. Whether you have leaks, drainage issues, or buildup in your pipes, they’ll find it.

From there, they can make recommendations. If you have leaks, they can give you a quote while they’re there. That beats having to find out later that you have a leaking pipe, then needing to schedule another plumber to come to your home.

4. Camera Inspection for Drains and Sewers

Not knowing what’s in your drain makes it difficult for anyone to know the right drain cleaning service. We need to utilize technology since we can’t look down our drains.

Many drain cleaning companies will use pipe inspection (or snake) cameras. These are non-articulating cameras attached to long lines. Because of their flexibility, professionals can maneuver these cameras through most pipe assemblies.

That means it can visually inspect your drain’s innards without worrying about getting caught in the many bends of your plumbing pipes.

5. Sewer Line Repair

When performing sewer line repairs, plumbers will fix cracks within your plumbing. Don’t confuse this with sewer line replacements. However, in extreme scenarios, you will need to replace your pipes.

You’ll need a sewer line repair in these scenarios:

  • Water damage throughout your home
  • Flooded yard
  • Draining difficulties

A specialist won’t need to dig a massive trench in your yard to make these repairs. Instead, they’ll use alternatives like pipe repair clamps and pipe lining.
