Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning

It can be hard to tell when a drain clog is serious enough to warrant calling a professional. Some minor clogs or slow drains can be easily fixed if you can fish our debris and hair from the opening. Other times, the problem is more complex. 

Consider the following signs of a drain clog:

  • Water pooling up around a shower, tub, or sink
  • Gurgling noises
  • Foul odors coming from the drain
  • Appearance of drain flies
  • Overflowing toilets
  • Multiple clogged drains
  • Higher than normal water bills

If using a plunger or drain cleaning liquid (which we advise against) doesn’t work, calling a trust drain cleaning expert can help to uncover the cause of your clog and effectively address the issue.

How We Approach Drain Issues

At Shark Plumbing Services, our plumbing team has seen and done it all when it comes to clogged drains. We have the knowledge, skills, and tools to effectively clean drains without using messy gels and liquids that are largely ineffective.

Some of the drain cleaning methods we apply include:

  • Video camera inspections: Clogged drains can often be more complicated than an accumulation of gunk, that’s why we use cutting-edge video technology to find out exactly the cause of the blockage. We feed a specialized camera down your drain pipe and assess the internal damage or blockage and what it will take to effectively clear it out.
  • Drain snaking: Using a specialized tool called a drain snake, we can dislodge the clog or break it up so water can drain smoothly once again. Also known as a drain auger, these tools work similarly to a corkscrew, breaking down any obstruction deep within your pipes.
  • Hydro jetting: For serious clogs, we break out the big guns. Hydro jetting is a tool that involves a high-pressure water jet that we shoot down into your drain pipe that sends powerful blasts of hot water to break through clogs and clear away all grease, hair, and oil. This option can thoroughly clean out your entire drain pipe, restoring your drain pipes to “like-new” condition.
