Drain Cleaning

With our main customer base in the San Francisco Bay area, we offer professional plumbing services in homes and businesses. Our specialty includes cleaning drains that are clogged or operate poorly. We employ certified plumbers who understand how to get to the root of a problem involving a drainage system. A thorough inspection is done in cases involving clogs in multiple fixtures throughout a house or office. Such a situation indicates that the main drain system might be clogged. A clean-out valve has to be opened in order for the main drain pipe to be accessed. Our plumbers utilize augers to get a good grip on any obstructions inside thick drains in basement levels. Additionally, some work on the exterior of a property might have to be done. For instance, rooter cleaning services focus on the pipes that connect a home's main drain to a municipal sewage system. Leaks in drain pipes could lead to major problems in a home's plumbing system and infrastructure. The accumulation of wastes in the soil can compromise the integrity of a foundation. Additionally, soil might get inside drain pipes that have large holes. Our plumbers can identify the location of any leaks in drain systems. Soldering technology is used to seal any of the openings in heavy-duty drain pipes. Sealants are also applied into the interior surfaces of drain lines.

Drain Cleaning by Plumbing SF

Our plumbers clean drains in homes and commercial properties throughout the city of San Francisco and the surrounding region. Such services cover drains inside bathrooms, kitchens, basements and laundry rooms. Additionally, external drainage systems may also be thoroughly cleansed and adjusted. The purpose of drain cleaning is to prevent clogs at specific fixtures throughout a house or commercial building. Our plumbers carry a variety of tools to deal with various types of clogs. For example, a classic rubber plunger is effective at loosening up debris that accumulates in traps under toilets or sinks. Similarly, rubber bladders could be inserted into clogged drains in order to push against any obstacles in the way. Hand augers are effective at cleaning drains that have clogs which are not visible directly under plumbing fixtures. Such snake-like devices can expand and precisely move through the inner diameter of drain pipes. A reel drum is utilized to control the retraction and expansion of the auger. Our plumbers carry augers that can be inserted for dozens of feet into any type of drain. Additionally, machine-operated augers are available to handle difficult clogs in wide pipes. Another way that drains are cleaned by our plumbers is with chemicals. Powerful liquids are poured down drain pipes in order to eliminate any sticky wastes and other debris that could gradually lead to clogs and gas buildup.
