Drain Cleaning in Florence, KY, and Nearby Areas
If you have a clogged drain in your home or office, you need a plumber in Florence, KY, and the surrounding areas to make sure your plumbing runs smoothly again. You may try strong chemicals to break up the blockage, but these can seriously damage your pipes and still not solve the problem. Our professional drain cleaning services rely on several effective methods to unclog your drains and keep your pipes in good shape. We serve the following locations and the surrounding areas:
The Main Causes of Clogs
Hair is the main culprit of drain clogs especially when it is combined with soap scum and grease. Food waste, grease and cooking oil cause most of the blocks in kitchen drains. Toilets may become clogged with sanitary products, washcloths, wet wipes, and even small toys that young children have a fascination with throwing in the toilet.
Tree roots are a major cause of a blockage. They seek water and can begin growing inside your pipes through a pinhole leak. This is one reason it is so important to find even the tiniest leak before it causes major, costly damage to your plumbing.
Plumbing problems especially blocked drains can cause serious damage to your home or office. Even a small amount of moisture inside the walls, floor or ceiling can start to grow toxic mold in just 48 hours. This mold sends out spores that pollute your indoor air quality and may cause respiratory problems.
Our Drain Cleaning Services
We provide professional drain cleaning in Florence, KY, and the surrounding areas. Drain snaking and hydro jetting are two of our safest and most effective methods for breaking up a clogged drain.
Snaking – We use a tool called a plumber’s snake that is a flexible, pointed auger. Small shallow blocks may be dislodged with a plunger, but large, thick, deeper blocks need to be physically broken up with a drain snake. The tool is inserted into the drain and can be pushed deep inside the pipe to dislodge the block.
We use several types of snakes, but the most common is a quarter-inch with a 25-foot cable. We also have 50-foot cables and can reach any block in a shower, kitchen or bathroom sink, toilet, utility room or a laundry room. The snake has a special end that hooks or cuts through the clog.
Hydro Jetting – This involves the application of high-pressure water inside the drains. Before sending in the high-pressure hose, we look inside with a small camera to get an idea of the cause and extent of the block. Even tightly grown root systems can be removed with hydro jetting.
Several types of nozzles use 35,000 PSI of pressure, and we use the right one for the size of the drain and the type of blockage. When the nozzle meets the block whether it is tree roots or hardened grease and food waste, it emits the high-pressure stream of clear water that tears apart the blockage. It can also remove sand and silt.
