Comprehensive Drain Cleaning in Farragut
Drain service for blocked and slow-moving drains clears tacky and slimy buildups, soft and semi-solid blockages, and hard obstructions. Having a professional choose the right drain-clearing method for your needs is far safer than using plungers, chemical drain cleaners, or drain snakes on your own.
DIY drain-clearing measures can cause a host of costly problems.
- Severe pipe damage
- Obstructions forced deeper into plumbing systems
- Porcelain abrasions and cracks
- Loss of fixture manufacturer warranties
Store-bought drain cleaners are also hazardous to human health. Many of these products can cause significant damage to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system, especially if used incorrectly.
For all clogged drains, we identify the exact locations and nature of clogs. Our plumbers can use mechanical tools like augers and snakes to break semi-solid blockages down without harming fixtures or pipes. Sometimes clearing a clogged drain is as easy as extracting large accumulations of hair or food waste.
Powerful, hydro-jetting techniques remove hard, stubborn obstructions and accumulated drain waste. Performed at clean-outs, hydro-jetting sloughs off tough build-ups on pipe walls, pushes stubborn blockages through, and strips away oils, sediment, grease, and residues from rendered fats.
With forces as high as 7,000 psi, hydro-jetting isn’t ideal for all plumbing systems. Hydro-steaming works similarly. However, rather than using forceful jets of water, hydro-steaming leverages hot, fast-moving steam. It produces comparable results while remaining a suitable choice for aging pipes and other dated plumbing features.
Most plumbers recommend scheduling drain cleaning annually. In between these visits, you might need additional drain service if your sink, shower, and bathtub drains are slow-moving or emitting strong, unpleasant smells. However, if all of your drains are slow-moving, malodorous, or backing up at once, you may have a serious blockage along your main sewer line.
