When it comes to maintaining a healthy plumbing system, drain cleaning is a crucial service you’ll likely need at some point. But what exactly happens during a professional drain cleaning service? Here’s what you can expect when you hire a professional from our team to complete this essential task.

What to Expect During a Drain Cleaning Service

Upon arrival, our technicians will greet you and take necessary precautions to keep your home clean. We’ll start by asking you some questions about your home’s plumbing history to better understand the situation. Then, we’ll set a clear agenda for the service, explaining each step in detail, from diagnostics to the final camera inspection.

We’ll perform tests on your plumbing fixtures and try to locate any clogs or backups. This helps us decide what equipment we will use. Once we’ve gotten clear access to the service area, we’ll lay down drop cloths and use specialized tools to clear the sewer line of any blockages. After the cleaning, we’ll test your fixtures to ensure proper flow and conduct a final camera inspection to identify any underlying issues.

Preparation Tips

Before we arrive, make sure there’s a clear path from the front door to the access point, at least 3 feet wide, to accommodate our equipment. Remove personal items from around the affected fixtures and access points. If there’s sewage waste in the work area, have it removed by a remediation company before we arrive. Also, be aware that the average drain cleaning service will take a couple of hours.
