Drain Cleaning FAQs

What is the best method of drain cleaning?

For minor blockages, using a mixture of baking soda and vinegar followed by hot water can be effective. Plungers work well for simple clogs, while commercial drain cleaners may dissolve certain materials. For more stubborn or complex clogs, professional plumbers often use tools like drain snakes or hydro-jetting for thorough cleaning. Preventive measures such as regular cleaning and avoiding disposing of certain materials down the drain can also contribute to maintaining clear and functional drains.

Is Drano safe to use on a drain?

While Drano and similar chemical drain cleaners can be effective in clearing certain clogs, they come with potential risks. The chemicals in these products can be harsh and may cause damage to pipes, especially in older plumbing systems. Additionally, they pose health risks if mishandled, and the fumes can be harmful. It's crucial to follow the product's instructions carefully, use protective gear, and avoid mixing different drain cleaners. For a safer approach, consider using alternative methods like a plunger, a drain snake, or seeking professional plumbing assistance for more stubborn clogs.

How much does it cost to unclog a drain line?

Professional plumbing services for more complex clogs could range from $100 to $300 or more, depending on the specific circumstances. Costs can also vary based on geographical location and the time required for the plumber to address the issue.

What should I avoid putting down my drains to keep them from clogging?

To prevent drain blockages, avoid putting the following down your drains: cooking grease, oil, and fats; coffee grounds; eggshells; starchy foods like rice and pasta; fibrous vegetables like celery and corn husks; and non-food items such as wipes (even those labeled flushable), paper towels, feminine hygiene products, and condoms. Also, be cautious with hair and soap scum in bathroom drains. These substances can solidify or accumulate, leading to stubborn clogs that are difficult to remove without professional help.

What are some signs that my drains may need a professional cleaning?

Here are signs that your drain may need cleaning:

  • Slow drainage in sinks, tubs, or showers.
  • Water backing up in sinks, toilets, or other fixtures.
  • Gurgling noises coming from drains.
  • Unpleasant odors emanating from the drain.
  • Frequent clogs that recur even after clearing.
  • Water pooling around floor drains.
  • Fruit flies or other pests attracted to the drain area.
  • Mysterious puddles or dampness near plumbing areas.

These symptoms suggest a blockage or buildup that might require professional cleaning.

Common Causes of Clogs in Your Bathroom:

  • Hair The longer your hair is, the more likely you are to experience a clogged shower drain. Reduce clogs by installing a hair catcher in your drain
  • Paper Too much toilet paper can clog a toilet drain, but the big offenders are paper towels and feminine napkins. Throw those away instead of flushing them.
  • Soap Scum The same residue that builds up in your sink and shower between cleanings also builds up in your drains, contributing to slow drainage and blockages.
  • Flushing Toys Parents of young children know how curiosity can lead to finding doll parts, toys cars, and little plastic animals in your toilet.

Trust Hobaica for Drain Cleaning!

You may think, if clogs are caused by hair and soap scum, why not just use a chemical clog remover from the grocery store? While liquid clog removers can help in the short run, they aren’t tough enough to fully clear a clogged drain, and you end up dealing with another clog much sooner. The chemicals they use can also degrade your pipes over time, contributing to leaks and breakages.

Hobaica’s clog removal techniques completely remove your clog without using caustic chemicals. This not only resolved your clog, but protects your pipes from corrosion or breakage.

Rather than risk damaging your plumbing system with chemical clog removers, rely on Hobaica Services to clear your tough drain clogs and for all your bathroom plumbing and sewer line service needs.
