Drain Cleaning vs. Drain Clearing: What’s the Difference?
While these services serve to clear your drains of clogs, we use different methods depending on the severity of the clogs.
Drain clearing is likely more appropriate if you’ve only had recent clogs with relatively newer piping. We’ll use a drain snake to clear the clog.
If you’re experiencing more frequent clogs and your drains are much older, we recommend a full-scale drain cleaning. We’ll use hydro jetting to blast through the troublesome clog so it doesn’t come back.
Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Cleaning & Clearing
When it comes to providing quality drain cleaning services to homeowners throughout the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area, we’ve seen and heard it all! That’s why we’ve compiled some of the most common drain cleaning questions we have received over the years.
Can you prevent drain clogs?
While the occasional clog is mostly unavoidable, there are some preventative steps you can take to ensure your drains remain clog-free, including:
Pour hot (not boiling) water down your drains regularly to clear buildup.
Refrain from using liquid drain cleaners that can cause serious damage to your plumbing system.
Run a steady stream of cold water down your garbage disposal when in use.
Clean your bath stoppers regularly to remove gunk and soap scum.
Never flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet to avoid toilet clogs.
Why do my drains smell bad?
The most common reason for foul-smelling drains is a blockage somewhere in your pipes. The gunk and bacteria that can build up in drains often have a nasty odor associated with them, so it may be best to schedule drain cleaning services to remove any partial or full blockages.
Why are my drains backing up?
Multiple drain backups usually indicate a clogged sewer line. This can be due to a blockage from tree root infiltration or debris buildup.
Whatever is causing your blockage, wastewater backup is a serious issue and should be dealt with by a professional immediately for the safety of everyone in your household.
What's the gurgling sound coming from my drain?
If your drain is making a strange gurgling sound, you could have a partial clog or a drain that isn’t venting properly.
A sink’s vent is used to prevent a vacuum from happening when your sink is full of water. If the ventilation isn’t functioning properly, air will fill the vacuum that the water has created, resulting in a gurgling sound. The gurgling stems from air rushing past your sink’s P-trap.
What shouldn't I put down my drains?
Even though garbage disposals can break down certain foods, you should be careful about everything you put down your drains. Even if there isn’t an immediate clog, substances can build and create a clog over time.
Try your best to keep your drains clear of:
Starchy or hard foods
