Drain cleaning services start with a service call. You will need to set up an appointment while a professional asks you questions about your plumbing issues from the past and present.
You can ask them about the procedure, and how much the service will cost. Then, a plumber and the company they work for will explain how they operate their drain cleaning services.
Typically, they will start with a camera inspection to identify any clogs and problem areas in your drain. They can do this by using a fiber-optic camera that can twist and turn through your plumbing.
The next step is the plumber begins to prepare for the work.
The plumber will have to place down drop cloths, wear shoe coverings, and take other precautions to ensure the rest of your home stays clean.
The next step is they will start cleaning your drains. They will either use hydro jetting or a drain snake. Hydro jetting is when the plumber uses a specialty hose, snakes it down the drain, and then runs hot water through your pipes, breaking up blockages and debris.
The drain snake method is when a plumber uses a snake to grab or break up a clog from your pipes. A reputable company will always check their work before leaving your house. Then, they will run your faucets and make sure they are flowing properly again.
