Big Signs You Need Drain Cleaning

When do you need drain cleaning? Most homeowners can tell. If you experience any of these issues, there is a very good chance it is time for drain cleaning.

  • Dirty water

Clogs are essentially waste buildup. Instead of clean pipes with free-flowing water, clogged drains cause water to grow dirty because it contacts waste. Water may look murky, foggy or brown. Sometimes, it may contain sediment, as well.

  • Poor drainage

Does water empty more slowly than usual? Does water bubble up from the mouth? Clogged drains are blocked drains. They stop water from freely passing. When water takes longer to empty, it leaves the sink or tub dirty and prone to soap scum. Because water sits on top of the clog, dirty water grows dirtier and bubbles through very, very slowly.

  • Backed up water

Clogged drains also cause water to back up. When this happens, you might notice that a dry sink or tub suddenly has pools of dirty or smelly water. You might see some particles of waste, too. This happens with severe clogs.

  • Bad odors

Clogged drains result in bad odors, too. In fact, this might be the most startling and bothersome symptom. You might smell mold, bacteria or microbiological growth. Because sewage collects inside the pipes with little to no ventilation, the odor will waft into the home.

If you experience any of these issues with your drains, call Moore Home Services for drain cleaning promptly. We restore healthy and proper drainage so that you can enjoy your home again.

Drain Cleaning with Moore Home Services

What tools do plumber use to clean your drains? There are a few different ways to get your drains cleaned. What tool your plumber uses really depends on how severely your pipes are clogged and what the exact problem is.

During your appointment, your plumber will investigate the clog and the condition of your drains and pipes. Then, he or she will continue with the drain cleaning using the best tool for the situation.

They might use a:

  • Drain Snake

Drain snakes are possibly the most popular way to remove buildup inside of drains at home.  A drain snake is a thin flexible rod with lots of “hairs” on it. As we feed the snake into the drain, the hairs catch onto buildup. When we retrieve the snake, the hairs pull out pieces of buildup.

  • Cable Machine

The cable machine is a strong arm with an open claw at the end. This is the tool most plumbers like to use because it’s efficient, it works and it is simple to operate.

Your plumbing expert inserts the cable machine into the clogged pipe. Then, by mechanically operating the claw, it cuts through the clog, breaking buildup into smaller pieces until it washes away.

  • Hydro-jetting

Here, a high-pressure water jet is used to clean clogged drains. It is strong enough to break through plywood in thirty-seconds. Hydro-jetting removes buildup, grease, scum, mineral, scale and even yard waste. It is perfectly safe and causes no damage to your property or pipes.

What Shouldn’t Go In Your Drain?

To prevent the need for drain cleaning in the future, know what should and should not go down the drain in the first place. Many homeowners are misinformed and throw coffee grounds and egg shells down the kitchen sink, thinking it’s actually good for the pipes. Unfortunately, this myth is untrue.

Refrain from dumping:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Egg shells
  • Grease
  • Fruit and vegetable peels
  • Bandages
  • Cigarettes
  • Cotton swabs
  • Cooking grease/oil
  • Dental floss
  • Dust, dirt or lint
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Fruit/vegetable peels
  • Hair
  • Medications
  • Paper towels
  • Wet Wipes

Avoid tossing these things down the drain. Additionally, to maintain the health of your drain and pipes, use a simple homemade solution. Mix vinegar and baking soda together to rinse the drain and pipes. For the kitchen, use a cheap mesh filter to catch food waste from entering the drain.

If you are unsure of what you should or should not do, reach out and talk to one of our technicians. We are more than happy to speak with you.
