Nothing is more bothersome than having the drain to your home clogged. As your home drainage system is an interconnected part of the house, even the smallest blockage can affect the whole unit. For example, a small clog on the kitchen drain can stop the bathtub from emptying the water as well. This might cause more problems inside your home in the long run.
Band-aid solutions such as over-the-counter products that claim to clean your drain is usually the first thing that comes to mind when having these issues. However, since these usually contain harmful chemicals, they might cause damages or holes to your existing drain system. This will basically do more harm than good to you and your family.
Here are some signs that it’s time to schedule sewer and drain cleaning in Seattle:
- Slowly draining water
- Drains that frequently clog
- Strange sounds (gurgling) in the pipes
- Nasty odors coming from the drain
- Backed up water

West Seattle Drain Line Cleaning
If you notice issues with your home drain, there can be a number of ways to repair it. One popular method is through hydro jetting. This non-invasive treatment is an environmentally friendly way of cleaning drains without the risk of tearing through the already existing pipelines. Hydro jetting makes use of high pressure water to flush out the debris that’s clogging your sewer lines.
Another traditional method of cleaning pipes and drains is snaking. You can do this by inserting a flexible rod into the pipes in order to dislodge the existing blockage on the system. Anyone can buy a drain snake from their local hardware store. However, if you’re untrained in snaking, otherwise known as cabling, you might risk damaging your pipes even more. For this reason, you have to hand the task over to professional plumbers in your area.
