Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to clean a clogged drain?
While we do not always recommend a DIY approach, you can purchase a small drain snake for tubs and sinks if you feel comfortable with handling a small clog. Larger jobs are usually best left to professionals with the right sized tools and equipment.
Can you use baking powder to clean drains?
There are many “home remedies” that use things like baking soda and vinegar that are touted to clean drains. Usually, the safest means of cleaning is by using a mechanical device such as a snake. Always use caution when using chemicals. Baking soda, vinegar, etc. are basically harmless on their own, but when mixed with other substances commonly found in homes, they can become caustic and very dangerous. Always inform any professional that may come to service a clogged drain if you have used ANYTHING in the drain prior to his/her arrival.
How much does drain cleaning cost?
Service calls vary depending on location.
How often should drains be cleaned?
The term “cleaned” is different than “cleared”. Obviously, stoppages need to be dealt with as they occur. For residential kitchen sinks with garbage disposals, put a half a lemon or lime down the disposal every couple days to keep the drain from smelling. There are citrus based natural products available also for the same result.
How quickly should I expect drain cleaning service for a clog?
This depends on the service department’s schedule, distance, time of day or week. Since it varies, the best way to get an accurate idea is to call us.
