Drain Cleaning

Drain Cleaning Services in OLYMPIA, WA

If you ignore your drains, over time they may fill with debris, such as food, grease, hair, soap residue, and more. Clogged drains restrict your home’s flow of wastewater and can leave you dealing with frustrating water backup. If severe enough, you may even notice slow drains throughout your home—or, in a worst-case scenario, experience damage to the overall plumbing.

Clogged drains can also expose you to highly-contaminated sewage if they’re bad enough. This poses several health and hygiene concerns for you, so it’s important to address the issue.

Keeping your drains clean is key to having a functioning plumbing system. If you need help managing your drain pipes, our expert plumbers can step in. Our drain cleaning services will save your plumbing by removing harmful debris and soap buildup from your drain pipes. 

Look out for a number of indicators that your drains need thorough flushing. If you experience any of the following problems, give our team a call for a professional drain cleaning: 

  • Your sink and shower drains empty slowly
  • There is a blockage which doesn’t drain water at all
  • Your drains make bubbling or gurgling noises
  • The drains have an unpleasant odor
  • Your toilet floods when you flush it
  • The water level in your toilet bowl is inconsistent
  • Sinks flood when you flush the toilet

All of these issues indicate that there is a blockage somewhere in your drain line. Don’t ignore them and worsen the problem. American Plumbing can remove the clog and restore the function of your plumbing system. 

Whether you have an issue with your sink, shower, toilet, or floor drains, there are several drain cleaning methods to remove clogs. Our plumbers commonly unclog drains with:

  • Snaking
  • Hydro jetting
  • Rooter service

We use our drain camera and locator tool in conjunction with these methods to effectively find and identify clogs, and to locate related drain line issues.  Each method has its own advantages, but it’s essential to get a better idea of the clog before we decide on an approach for our drain cleaning services. For example, small clogs that affect only a single drain in your home often need snaking with an auger. This method consists of cranking a coil through your pipes to break away a blockage.

While snaking the drain is a reliable solution for small clogs, it’s not ideal when your sewer line has tree roots penetrating it. For this problem, our technicians need a stronger solution, such as rooter service. Once we inspect your plumbing and get an idea of the clog, we will let you know which approach is best for your situation. 

When you trust American Plumbing for drain cleaning services, we follow a detailed checklist for every job. We begin by asking you about your current drain issues and what problems you are experiencing. 

From there, we inspect the plumbing of your drain lines. For deep sewer lines, we place a waterproof camera through the pipe to get a visual of the clog and overall pipe condition. This inspection determines which cleaning method we use. 

No matter the approach we choose, we will not leave until the clog is gone and your drains flow freely again. Contact us today to get started!
