Drain Cleaning

Drain Cleaning in Orlando 

Drain cleaning is an important part of ongoing plumbing maintenance. Over time your drains fill up with hair, soap, debris, oil, grease, and other particles that cause this structure to clog. 

It's not uncommon for hair to be a main cause of a clogged shower drain, causing the water to pool up in the shower. Cooking grease and food particles can cause a clogged kitchen sink. A clogged sewer line can also be caused by roots that have penetrated the pipes underneath the ground.

Not matter the cause, Pro-Tech Air Conditioning & Plumbing Service offers a full-range of  plumbing services, including drain jetting to help you fix clogged drains by safely and effectively removing the clogs using state of the art drain cleaning technology and pipe jetting.

Three Types of Drain Cleaner

Many homeowners use chemical drain cleaner products such as Liquid Plumr or Drano as a first line of defense against clogged drains. In general, we do not recommend using chemical drain cleaners because they can harm your pipes and be dangerous for plumbers.

Most of the time our plumbers will use a plumbing snake or drain snake to clean your pipes. A plumbing snake is one of the best drain cleaner options available. If you have a clogged drain, the plumber's snake will be the first line of defense.

Lastly, for more stubborn clogs, hydro jetting service will be necessary. Hydro jetting service uses a high pressured water stream to blast through obstructions inside of your pipes. The hydro jet is great for clogs caused by grease. Sewer line jetting is one of the best ways to remove the most stubborn drain clogs.

Drain Cleaning FAQs

Why does my shower take so long to drain?

Several factors could be causing your shower to drain slowly. The most common reason is a clog in the drain, often formed by hair, soap scum, and other debris that gets washed down over time. Another possibility could be a blocked vent pipe, which disrupts the air flow needed for water to move smoothly through the plumbing system. Additionally, mineral buildup from hard water can narrow the pipes and reduce water flow. Identifying and addressing the specific cause is crucial for restoring your shower's drainage efficiency.

How can I keep my drains from clogging?

To prevent drain clogs, consider implementing a few proactive measures. First, use sink strainers to catch food particles, hair, and other debris that could cause blockages. Regularly flush your drains with hot water, as this can help dissolve any potential buildup of oils and grease. For bathroom drains, minimize the amount of soap scum and hair by cleaning them weekly. Also, be mindful of what you flush down the toilet; avoid disposing of anything besides human waste and toilet paper. Finally, consider using natural cleaners like baking soda and vinegar monthly to maintain clear pipes without damaging them with harsh chemicals.

Why does my drain smell so bad?

A foul smell emanating from your drain is often a sign of trapped food particles, grease, and other debris decomposing in the pipes. This accumulation not only creates an unpleasant odor but can also lead to clogs and slow drainage. Furthermore, if the P-trap (the U-shaped pipe underneath your sink) dries out, it can allow sewer gases to rise up through the drains, contributing to the bad smell. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the pipes can help prevent these issues and keep your drains smelling fresh.

How do I get rid of drain flies?

To effectively eliminate drain flies, start by thoroughly cleaning your drains to remove organic matter, which is the primary breeding ground for these pests. Begin by pouring boiling water down the drain daily for a week. For tougher infestations, use a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by half a cup of vinegar, and cover the drain. The reaction between these substances helps to remove the organic buildup. After an hour, flush the drain with boiling water. For best results, consider using a metal pipe brush to manually scrub the inside of the pipe or an enzyme-based drain cleaner to break down organic matter without harsh chemicals. Establishing a regular cleaning routine for your drains can prevent future infestations.

Hydro Jetting Services in Orlando

Pro-Tech Air Conditioning & Plumbing Service offers professional hydro jetting services for residential and commercial customers. When using a hydrojet option for sewer jetting, we will use a camera in your drain to identify the item clogging your pipe. We will then use the hydro jetting drain cleaning tool to clean the drain. Once we have finished water jet sewer cleaning and believe the clog has been removed, we will use a camera again to verify the clog has been removed.

We Handle Stubborn Clogs

The process of cleaning a drain line can vary. In some cases, your home or business may have multiple clogs. We will usually attack the obvious clogs during our first visit with a plumbing snake. If your drain continues to be clogged, we may opt for a more thorough jetting plumbing service.
