What to Expect During Drain Cleaning Service

Your plumbing system brings in clean water to your property and disposes of sewage and wastewater produced by your household. The drains do half of this job, but they are vulnerable to more damage. This is mainly because drains are much more likely to clog. While incoming water might have sediment and minerals that can form blockages, many homeowners abuse drains by throwing anything and almost everything in the kitchen sink and toilet. Don’t worry, professional drain cleaning can have those drains clean as a whistle. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County is proud to be a reliable source for drain cleaning in the area.

The Benefits of Drain Cleaning

Clogged drains can result in inconveniences such as foul odors and slow drainage. If your sinks gurgle as they drain, they might have a blockage. Clogs can cause bigger problems too. Severe blockages can cause water and sewage backups, flooding your toilet or sinks. Blockages can also put undue pressure on the drains as water tries to force its way through a narrower opening. This can crack and even burst the drains, leading to leaks and worse.

Drain cleaning prevents all of these inconveniences and headaches. We recommend homeowners get in the habit of rinsing drains with hot water after use and with vinegar and baking soda once every couple of months. Professional drain cleaning is due once every two to three years.

The Process

When you contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County, a friendly representative will take your call and schedule a convenient appointment. We are also happy to arrange an emergency drain cleaning.

When the plumber arrives, they will greet you in a friendly and professional manner. They will respect your time and property by putting on shoe covers and working efficiently. The plumber will ask you a series of questions to better understand the situation, inspect the location of the problem, and test your plumbing fixtures.

With the diagnostics complete, the skilled plumber will set a clear agenda. This is when you can ask for a price estimate. If the price sounds right, then the plumber will get to work by first putting down drop cloths to protect the flooring.

The plumber will use a video technology to inspect the drains for damage. If the drains are sturdy, then the plumber will use a drain cleaning machine to clear the drain line safely and thoroughly.

With the gunk and junk cleared out of the drains, the plumber will conduct a final camera inspection of the drains and test your plumbing fixtures. If they find uncovered damage under the now-removed blockage, then they might recommend repairs or replacements.

How You Can Prepare for Your Appointment

Fortunately for you, the plumber takes care a large majority of the work. However, we ask that you clear out a path, 3 feet wide, for the plumber from the front door to the access point. Remove personal items from around plumbing fixtures and have a remediation company clean out any sewage or flooding in the area.
