Slow drains, in general, are some of the most common and annoying plumbing problems homeowners face — they’re also one of the least likely to get proper attention for a permanent fix. No matter what it takes, we are the drain cleaning company that will keep working on your clog until it’s gone. We’ll find the best way to eliminate it, then get to work and stay focused on your drains until they are clear again. We’re not looking to provide temporary relief. 

We go beyond simple cleaning to find and solve the underlying problem with top-of-the-line plumbing services, including:

Clean Your Drain the Right Way

So many of our clients use store-bought products or a plunger in hopes of curing a slow drain, but those only work as a Band-Aid for the underlying issue at best. At worst, they can cause extra, unforeseen damage to your pipes or appliances.

Chemical drain cleaners are basically bottles of acid. While the acid might be able to break down whatever is in your pipes, it also doesn’t distinguish between the clog and the pipes themselves. Continued use can eat away at your drain, pipes, and anything else it comes in contact with, which then results in a shorter lifespan for your pipes. It also won’t come as a surprise to learn that flushing pure chemicals down your drain isn’t great for the environment.

While using a plunger may seem like an eco- and wallet-friendly alternative, it’s also ineffective in the long run. A plunger may be able to break up part of a clog for temporary relief, but there’s no way of knowing if there’s anything left in your drain. If you over-plunge, you run the risk of damaging your pipes, appliances, or your back.

Signs Your Drain Needs Cleaning

Like any area of your home, drains can fall into disrepair and need some attention. Whether its loose hairs, food debris, or dried cleaning products, it’s likely that you’ll have to deal with drains clogging. Luckily, you can call Daniel’s Plumbing & Air Conditioning to help alleviate your drain clogs and perform a professional drain cleaning. But how do you know when the problem has gone beyond a slightly sluggish drain and into a need for a plumber’s help?

Here are the signs that you could use professional draining cleaning:

Slow Draining

When it comes to clogged drains, one of the easiest signs to notice is slower drainage. Is your sink or bathtub draining slower than it normally does, if at all? Does your washing machine or dishwasher still have a lot of water in it after a cycle? As well as being an inconvenience, this is a sign of a blockage somewhere in your pipes. A professional drain cleaning will release the clogs in your drains and allow water to easily flow through your pipes.

Backed-Up Drains

When drains need cleaning, sometimes water that should have been drained will come back up. You might have gurgling toilets or standing water in your sink. If water is going back up the drain, it’s a major sign that it should be cleaned.

Sewage Smells

One of the more unpleasant and noticeable signs of a clogged drain is the smell of sewage. When drains are clogged, anything that goes down into the drain will build up and rot in the lines. This can become even more noticeable and disgusting if you live in a warmer area. If you smell sewage in your home, it’s a good idea to act quickly.

Fruit & Drain Flies

When waste and other sewage starts building up in your drain, it’ll start to attract flies. Fruit flies like the smell and can be a health risk when they get into your kitchen and food. Meanwhile, the aptly named drain fly (also known as sewer or filter fly) likes to breed in septic tanks, sewers, and clogged drains. If you start noticing a lot of flies, you’ll definitely want to call for professional drain cleaning.

Strange Noises

If your drains are clogged, they may start making odd noises. When drains get clogged, the water may be forced to go through small spaces or change course. This can result in strange gurgling or bubbling noises.

Benefits of Frequent Drain Cleaning

The benefits of frequent drain cleaning include:

Efficient Draining

As you may have guessed, when your drains get clogged, they’ll have trouble draining water and any debris that goes down them. When they’re clear, water will quickly drain, and you won’t have to worry about overflowing or standing water. This is especially important for toilet drains, as backflow problems involving sewage can be especially nasty.

Improved Pipe Lifespan

Among the things that can build up in your drains are various chemical deposits. These chemicals can cause damage to the pipes they’re in and eventually cause a leak. By getting routine cleaning for your pipes, you can keep your pipes from getting corroded, which improves their lifespan.

Prevent Foul Odors

You probably think toilets are the only parts of your plumbing system that can get smelly. However, any dirty drain can raise a big stink if it doesn’t get proper and regular cleaning. Mold spores grow best in dark, damp areas, and your drains have both in excess. Even the regular flow of water may not be enough to wash those spores away. By diligently cleaning your drains, you can prevent the buildup of mold spores and bacteria that could make your home reek.

Avoid Damage to Your Home

Did you know that chemicals that buildup in your drains can corrode the pipes and cause leaks? In addition, backflow can happen from a clogged pipe. When these things happen, your home can face water damage that requires repairs. It’s especially nasty when the leak comes from a clogged pipe full of wastewater. All those disgusting chemicals and bacteria will be able to get loose and damage your walls and floors. Frequently cleaning your drains can prevent problems that lead to water damage.
