Realizing that your toilets will not flush or sinks will not drain can turn a lovely day into a miserable day quickly. If your drains in your home are not draining properly, you likely have a drain clog that requires cleaning. We flush several different things down our drains every day and over time these items can become caught in the drainpipe, leading to a clog. Here is a list of the most common things we find in drains that lead to clogs:
- Soap Scum
- Feminine Products
- Tree Roots
- Paper Products
- Sanitary Items
- Rain Drain Blockages
While in some instances, these items are flushed down the drains during normal use, overtime residue can build up that catch these items as the flow through the pipe, creating a blockage.
How Are Drain Clogs Found In Portland?
3 Mountains Plumbing uses state of the art drain-imaging tools to get a real-time look at the inside of your drains. This video unit will allow us to see exactly what is causing the clog to develop and give us the information needed to provide you with an accurate quote.
Drain Cleaning Process In Portland
Cleaning your drains is not a job for the weekend warrior of home repair. Using chemicals, rented drain snakes and other methods can severely damage your drains, leading to an even bigger issue. We will use a drain snake to grab onto the mass of the clog and pull it out through the opening of your drain. We will repeat the drain snake procedure until the clog has been entirely removed and water is flowing through your drains once again. A final video inspection will ensure your drains are clog free.
