Clogged Drains

CLOGGED DRAINS & DRAIN CLEANING

How do you know if your drains are clogged? Clogged drains pertain to your water flowing slower than usual. This can cause blockage and clogging with noticeable signs such as whistling noises, putrid or musty smells and overflowing exterior gully grates.

Here are some of the common things that cause clogged drains:

  • Hair
  • Grease
  • Toilet Paper
  • Tree Roots
  • Debris
  • Pipe Slope Angled Incorrectly

An accumulation of items such as hair or grease can cause serious blockage, but so can your drain slope angled wrong; which can cause your water flow to move at a disrupted pace. The frequency of your clogs can also indicate how backed your drain line really is.

For these causes, drain snaking is a formidable solution for relieving a clogged drain. This drain cleaning process has a metal tool (drain snake) remove any significant gunk build up and safely disposes of it. This helps clear out your drains of any debris and gunk and allows water to flow correctly once again. JLZ Plumbing are experts in drain cleaning services, as we unclog your drains both efficiently and effectively; making our solution both speedy and long lasting.

Drains are the hardest working feature in any home or business and sometimes they need a little TLC. Since we usually pay no mind to our drains, a clog or other draining issue might come as a surprise. Some common signs that your drain needs to be cleaned are:

  • foul odors – this can usually be due to a build-up of food particles
  • frequent clogs – every now and then a clog is common but if it becomes a constant then it’s an issue
  • slow drains – if it takes awhile for water to drain out of your sink/tub/toilet it could also mean a clog

No job is too small for us, so if you think your drain needs a cleaning give us a call.

Your indoor drains are not the only thing you should clean however, you also have to keep in mind your sewer drain might need some attention. Sewer drains are responsible for transporting gray and black water to the sewer (gray water is from your shower and kitchen and black water contains human waste). Blockages at this level can pose a serious issue. It may even lead to sewer backup, and for more information on that you can check out the section in services dedicated to that.

In many cases, a sewer main drain clog is caused by unpreventable things such as tree roots or a collapsing pipe. Something homeowners should do is be careful about what goes down the drain. Excess food particles and oil can contribute to these clogs as well. In many cases, if there is a clog to your sewer’s main drain it’s your responsibility but depending on where the location and cause of the stoppage you might have to contact your city or town.

Hydro Jetting

Hydro Jetting

While in most cases drain snaking is an effective way to clean drains, hydro jetting is recommended for larger gunk buildups and drain blockage. While the process is slightly more expensive, the longevity and cleanliness of your drains will save you more money in the long term. The process of hydro jetting is actually quite straightforward, our plumbers use a high-pressure water stream that comes from a hose to wash out the buildup of gunk, debris and other things clogging your drains.

This process clears the blockage and recreates a passageway for water flow to continue to move at an effective rate. It is highly recommended for larger blockage or if drain snaking methods don’t work as well. The velocity of hydro jetting really lets it cut through the buildup and truly cleanse your drains.

There are quite a few benefits of drain cleaning with hydro jetting, most notably for the longevity of the results. Hydro-jetting really washes out your drain completely, making it close to the level of brand new in terms of blockage or buildup. It is also extremely safe for your pipes and drains, meaning no added damage will occur when using hydro jetting. Lastly, the process uses absolutely zero chemicals, just normal water at an intensified velocity.

The speed and efficiency throws any possible contamination out the window. Our plumbers wear safety gear and follow all precautions for the hydro jetting process. If you’re looking to not only solve your draining solutions, but also clean them for long lasting results; hydro jetting is the way to go.
