Drain Cleaning & Rooter

Drain Cleaning Services in San Jose, CA

Your home’s drain pipes collect and remove wastewater from your house, transferring it into the sewer lines. Additionally, a drain line is designed to remove wastewater quickly and to prevent toxic gas from sewer lines and septic systems from entering a residential area.

Drains collect and discharge wastewater from your kitchen sink, toilets, bathroom sink, dishwasher, and washing machine to the sewer system. With this amount of activity, your home will inevitably encounter clogged drains at some point.

Professional Drain Cleaners in San Jose, CA

When you encounter a stubborn clogged drain in your home, count on SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter for professional drain cleaning services in San Jose, CA, and the surrounding areas. A clogged drain is one of the most common issues in any plumbing system, and we can handle them with ease.

Tips for Avoiding Clogged Drains

  • Use Drain Covers: Installing a drain cover or strainer in all of your sinks and tubs to catch debris like hair, food particles, and soap scum before they enter the drain.
  • Regular Hot Water Flush: Run hot water down your drains regularly to help dissolve grease and soap buildup.
  • Baking Soda and Vinegar Treatment: For minor clogs, use a measuring cup to mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Pour this mixture down the drain, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then flush with hot water. This natural solution helps break down organic matter.
  • Boiling Water: Pouring a pot of boiling water down your drain can help melt away grease and soap scum that may be clinging to the inside of your pipes.
  • Things You Should Never Flush: Avoid flushing items like paper towels, hygiene products, cooking oils, and large food scraps down the drain or toilet to prevent clogs and potential damage to your plumbing system.

By following these tips and maintaining a vigilant eye on what goes down your drains, you can significantly reduce the risk of clogs and maintain smooth-flowing plumbing in your home.

Why You Should Avoid Chemical Drain Cleaners

Chemical drain cleaners sold at big box stores may not effectively help with your clogged drain and may create other problems. Here are some reasons why you should avoid “Liquid-Plumr” and other similar drain cleaners:

  • Ineffectiveness: Unfortunately, drain chemical cleaners sold at big box stores may not effectively create a lasting drain opening. While they might provide a temporary solution to minor clogs, they often fail to completely remove stubborn blockages. This means you’ll likely face the same issue again shortly after using these chemicals.
  • Harmful Chemicals: These drain cleaning products typically contain a potent mixture of harsh chemicals. Pouring them down your drains can lead to an accumulation of these chemicals in your plumbing system. Over time, this buildup can result in corrosion, etching, and even pipe failure. The chemical reactions can weaken pipes, leading to costly repairs or replacements down the line.
  • Environmental Concerns: Many chemical drain cleaners are harmful to the environment. Once they’re rinsed into the sewer system, they can affect water quality and harm aquatic life. Using such products not only jeopardizes your plumbing but also contributes to broader environmental issues.
  • Health Risks: The fumes and residues from chemical drain cleaners can pose health risks to you and your family. Inhaling these fumes or coming into contact with the chemicals can lead to respiratory issues, skin irritation, and eye problems.

For effective and safe resolution of clogged drains, it’s advisable to seek professional drain cleaning and rooter services. At SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter, we offer a range of plumbing solutions beyond just drain cleaning, including hydro jetting, cleanout installations, and sewer repiping. Our professional technicians use proven methods to clear blockages and maintain the integrity of your plumbing system while minimizing environmental and health risks.

  • How often should I schedule drain cleaning or rooter services for my home?
    The frequency of drain cleaning and rooter services can vary depending on your plumbing system’s age, usage, and the presence of trees near your sewer lines. As a general guideline, consider scheduling drain cleaning every 1 to 2 years for preventive maintenance. However, if you experience frequent clogs or slow drains, it’s wise to consult a professional plumber for a personalized maintenance schedule.
  • What is drain cleaning, and why is it necessary?
    Drain cleaning is the process of removing clogs, debris, and buildup from your plumbing system to ensure proper water flow. It’s necessary because, over time, substances like hair, grease, soap scum, and mineral deposits can accumulate in your pipes, causing slow drains and potentially leading to blockages. Regular drain cleaning helps maintain optimal plumbing performance and prevents costly backups.
  • Are drain cleaning services safe for copper and PVC pipes?
    Yes, professional drain cleaning services are typically safe for both copper and PVC pipes. Experienced plumbers use methods and equipment that are gentle on these types of pipes. For example, methods like hydro jetting and drain snaking effectively remove clogs without causing damage to your pipes. However, it’s essential to hire a reputable plumbing service provider to ensure that the technicians use the appropriate techniques and tools to safeguard your plumbing system during the cleaning process.
