Common signs that indicate the need for professional drain cleaning services include:

  • Foul odors coming from drain or pipes
  • Frequent clogs
  • Standing water in shower and sinks
  • Odd sounds coming from drains or pipes
  • Unusually slow drainage

Common Reasons a Home’s Drains Clog

Whether you are facing a severe clog or constantly enduring minor clogs, it’s helpful to understand why it might be happening and how to avoid this situation in the future. While there are countless reasons a drain might be clogged, most cases will come down to one of several common reasons:

  • Kitchen sinks and adjacent plumbing often end up clogged due to using a garbage disposal on things like starches, large amounts of grease and fat, fibrous vegetables, and non-food garbage
  • Bathroom plumbing often ends up clogged due to hair, large amounts of certain hair products, and flushing garbage other than toilet paper
  • Hard water can lead to accumulation that makes it easier for drains and your sewer line to clog
  • Tree root infiltration affecting your sewer line can lead to clogs affecting your entire home
  • Narrowed older pipes and other damage to your drains and sewer can make it easy for clogs to form

Call ABC Southwest Plumbing & Air Conditioning at 941-225-2182 today to learn more or to schedule drain cleaning and minimize the risk of further clogs.

What Is Drain Snaking?

For the routine cleaning of drains, using a drain snake, plumber’s snake, or drain auger is typically the first course of action. While technically different in that augers are larger, the terms are often used interchangeably for a tool that feeds a slender, flexible cable into your drains to scour them clean by spinning the cable, forcing it along the edges of the pipe.

Professional-grade augers can include modular blades for cutting up blockages, motors to spin a thick cable more forcefully, hooking ends to pull at drains or clogs, and more. Given their much greater power on your pipes, these tools are far more likely to damage your plumbing if misused.

In cases in which drain snaking doesn’t offer adequate clearing of your drains, solutions such as high-pressure water jetting might cut up the most stubborn obstructions, which will either flow freely away or be handled afterward with a drain snake. Video camera inspections might be used at any stage of the process, before or after each part, to give us a better idea of what we’re dealing with and how to proceed.

If you’d like to learn more about drain snaking and other drain cleaning solutions we offer Sarasota residents, call 941-225-2182!

FAQs About Drain Cleaning

How long does a drain cleaning last?

A typical drain cleaning should take less than three hours. Because of this speed, we highly recommend hiring a pro to get the job done as quickly as possible!

How often should you get your drains cleaned?

It’s recommended that drains are cleaned at least once a year to prevent buildup inside of them. You should still have them cleaned even if they aren’t showing signs of clogging or a slowdown.
