How Do We Diagnose Your Drains Problems?

There are a few warning signs that your main drain may be clogged. One of them is water gurgling up into your tub or shower drain after you have flushed the toilet. Another sign is that your shower drain or toilet may overflow with water when you use your washing machine. Finally, toilet water can start to overflow or rise to an unnatural level when you run your bathroom sink. These signs should not be ignored, and a professional should be called to ensure it is nothing more than a clog.

There are many different reasons that cause clogged drains. It usually happens when dirt, skin flakes, and hair binds to the soap-scum-covered walls of your drain pipes. These gradually accumulate and reduce water flow over time. Other reasons include:

Prior to cleaning the pipes, we will need to determine what the problem is and its severity. In many cases, we find that clogs are formed as a result of various organic materials that we are trained to identify during the inspection process, as well as:

  • Grease
  • Oil
  • Food waste
  • Hair
  • Soap
  • Tree roots from shrubs and trees
  • Misaligned pipes
  • Frozen pipes
  • Foreign objects / build-up

Our high-quality cameras allow us to locate clogs and pinpoint their composition, size, and density. With all of this information in place, we can move forward with cleaning the pipes with the needed solution.

How We Clean Drains

At VA Plumbing, we perform cleaning techniques that are minimally invasive and eco-friendly. Rather than demolishing the walls or floors in your home, we clean the pipes with tools that are easy to insert into the water lines without creating more damage. We are proud to avoid the toxic, liquid chemical cleaners that are commonly associated with increasing the rate of corrosion in pipelines and rely on pure cleaning sources to assist us in completing our work properly.

Hydro-Jetting vs. Snaking

At VA Plumbing, we practice different methods for cleaning the drains and pipes depending on the type of clog we're dealing with as well as the pipelines themselves. For pipes that are comprised of clay materials or are clogged with organic materials and food waste, we will use snaking tools to snag the clog and manually remove it out of the pipe.

If we find that the pipe is comprised of PVC or another hard, durable material and is plagued by the presence of hardened grease deposits or tree roots, our experts will recommend hydro jetting as the preferred solution. Hydro jetting is a specialized cleaning process that allows us to pulverize clogs and roots without excavating or using harsh chemicals. Requiring a water tank and multi-directional nozzle to be attached to the spout of the hose, we insert the hose into the pipeline and blast powerful jets of water into the pipe.

We manage the water pressure on the tank, and the nozzle on the hose redirects the streams of water to blast the complete interior circumference of the pipe. This process is fast and ensures that the clogs blasted off the walls of the inside of the pipes are completely washed away to the municipal, main line, preventing the likelihood of any clogs forming again in the near future by also restoring the smoothness of the inside of the pipe.

Preventative Maintenance

One of the most effective steps you can take towards preventing clogged drains is to have a plumber come out regularly for maintenance. Let the team of experts at VA Plumbing, LLC take clean out your drains on a regular basis to prevent major problems from arising.

However, if your drains are currently clogged and you have an existing problem, you will need to take action with our help. Our locally, family owned and operated company takes great pride in the quality of our work, as well as our professionalism and level of customer care.
