Slow drains can be a nuisance, but they can also be indicative of a more serious plumbing problem. Identifying and treating a slow-draining fixture can prevent a backup or, even worse, an overflow that poses a health risk. You can trust VA Plumbing to fix the root cause of your slow drains and perform preventative maintenance to avoid future occurrences.

Why Are my Drains Slow?

Slow drains can be the result of many different obstructions, including:

  • Excess toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning wipes, or even “flushable” bathroom wipes
  • Cotton balls, cotton swabs, or feminine hygiene products
  • Food scraps, grease, coffee grounds, or other kitchen items
  • Invasive tree roots seeking water
  • Scale, hard water minerals, and other sediment

When your first attempts at clearing a clog are unsuccessful, it’s time to call the professionals. Do not turn toward chemical solutions or devices that are dangerous to you and your pipes. VA Plumbers is your resource for unclogging drains quickly and affordably.

Drain Cleaning with VA Plumbing

Upon arrival, our technician will inspect your impacted drains. We typically utilize a camera inspection to get a first-hand look inside your pipes and determine the nature of the obstruction. Our technicians utilize one of two common methods of drain cleaning based on your specific situation.

Descaling often used for pipes made of fragile materials like clay or blockages made of soft materials like paper products or food waste. The device breaks up the obstruction without damaging your pipe or using harsh chemicals.

Hydro jetting is another form of drain cleaning used for tougher clogs like mineral buildup or other resilient clogs. The device sprays a high-powered stream of water to disintegrate the blockage without damaging your pipes. Both methods are easy to perform with little to no impact to your property.

When Repairs Are Needed

Sometimes repairs are performed in conjunction with drain cleaning. Particularly when tree roots have invaded your pipes, cracks and other damage will be present. Many different forms of pipe repair or replacement are available through VA Plumbers. We typically use trenchless methods of pipe repair that resurface the inside of your pipe using epoxy resin and a flexible lining, but we will customize your repairs to your unique circumstances.

Preventing Future Clogs

You can do your part to prevent clogs in your drains. Dispose of paper products, cleaning products, and food waste in appropriate ways and don’t let them get flushed or washed down your sink.

Regularly scheduled maintenance can help you avoid slow drains in the future. Our helpful and knowledgeable plumbers can help you come up with a maintenance plan based on the age of your plumbing system, the materials your pipes are made of, and your budget.
