Shower Drain Cleaning by Plumbing SF

Our San Francisco plumbing services include shower drain cleaning. We utilize the best tools to unclog shower drains in residential units such as apartments, homes, condos and townhouses. The first step in the unclogging process involves the removal of a strainer in order to gain access to the actual clog. The ultimate goal is to penetrate deep enough into the trap that is located directly below the drain opening. A plunger is not used in such a case because there isn't any water that can be forced downward against the clog. Instead, a snake-style auger is the most appropriate device for penetrating dip into a drain of a shower unit. Our plumbers use augers that can be precisely controlled with a handheld reel. Handles are turned on a crankshaft in order to apply the appropriate torque that translates into force. Augers have hooks that are effective at gripping debris such as loose hair and other solid things that have been accidentally dropped. In some instances, our technicians might have to physically disassemble the entire base of a shower unit to gain entry to the trap. Plastic and metallic objects should be removed manually by hand during such a delicate cleaning process. It's not a good idea to flush down solid items that could eventually end up clogging a main drain or a rooter pipe leading to a sewage system.
