Drain Cleaning in El Paso
When your drains are clogged, it makes simple things like washing your dishes and showering difficult. When this happens, many people choose to go to the store to buy over the counter drain cleaner, pouring it down the drain once they get home and seemingly fixing the problem. However, this can actually make it worse! Drain cleaner that you can buy at the store is usually corrosive, which can cause problems with your pipes. At Fox Plumbing, we can help you safely clean your drains and keep them clean too.
The Drain Cleaning Process
Cleaning your drains can be a messy, smelly, and intricate process–one you definitely want to leave to the professionals. This is a snapshot of what that process might look like:
- Bathrooms and Kitchens- Toothpaste, hair, and food can all clog your drain over time. It builds up in your pipes until water either can’t pass through it or passes through it too slowly, causing your sink or shower drain to drain slowly after using it. For this kind of issue, we usually have to snake your drain using specialized tools. This effectively clears the clog and blockage without having to use harmful chemicals on your pipes.
- Laundry/Utility Rooms- Most laundry and utility rooms have drains on the floor in case of leaks, spills, and other mishaps. Because they’re on the floor of a frequently used room, they can easily become clogged. However, unlike your bathroom or kitchen drains, these drains are typically a lot bigger and require a lot more manpower. Luckily, we have tools that are perfect for these differently sized drains. We can break up any clogs that have formed in your pipes to ensure these drains are properly filling with water to prevent odors and sewage like they are meant to.
- Sewer Cleaning- The largest of all drain cleaning jobs, sewer cleaning is a large beast to handle. Sometimes when your drains aren’t draining properly or you’re experiencing other kinds of plumbing issues, it may be because of a bigger issue with the sewer pipes leading up to your house. We use large, specialized snakes and other tools to clear blockage in sewer drains to ensure your plumbing system works properly.
