What Are Drain Cleaning Services?

Drain cleaning services include various techniques to help you unblock multiple pipes. Kitchen drains, bathroom drains, and especially toilets can become blocked. You need professional drain cleaning services to remove the blockage when they do. Removing the blockage is essential to allow wastewater and sewage to flow freely and keep them from contaminating the home and environment.

What Basic Techniques Do Drain Cleaning Experts Use?

As a drain cleaning company, we use various techniques to remove drain blockages. Depending on the extent of the problem or where it is, we use basic methods such as:

  • Chemical cleaners
  • Drain Snaking
  • Hydro-jetting

Chemical Drain Cleaners

Drain cleaning experts use three basic chemical cleaners to clear blockages. These include hydrochloric or sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, or enzymatic cleaners. Some homeowners choose to use store-bought drain cleaners for basic stoppages. Still, it is vital to call a plumber for more serious problems.


Drain snaking is a common method used by plumbers and drain cleaning services to clear clogs from drains. It involves using a long, flexible metal cable called a plumbing snake or drain snake, which is inserted into the drain pipe.

The snake is then rotated and pushed further into the pipe until it reaches the clog. The plumber will then apply pressure to the snake, causing it to break up the clog or push it further down the pipe, where it can be flushed away.

Snaking is typically used for simple clogs caused by things like hair, grease, or food particles that have built up in the drain over time. It is less effective for larger clogs or clogs caused by more significant issues like tree roots or damaged pipes.


Hydro jetting is a drain cleaning method that uses high-pressure water streams to clear clogs and debris from pipes. It is a more powerful and effective alternative to traditional snaking methods.

The process involves using a specialized machine that pumps water at high pressure through a hose and into the drain. The water pressure can be adjusted to accommodate the specific needs of the drain.

As the water is forced through the drain, it dislodges and clears away any clogs or debris in its path. Hydro jetting is particularly effective at removing stubborn clogs like tree roots, grease buildup, and mineral deposits.

Hydro jetting can also be used as a preventative measure to keep pipes and drains clear and free-flowing. It is safe for most types of pipes, including PVC, cast iron, and clay pipes, and can help extend the life of your plumbing system.

This technique is particularly valuable for sewer cleaning as it gets the job done quickly and cleanly.

Advanced Clogged Drain Services

Advanced clogged drain services refer to specialized techniques and tools used by professional plumbers to clear stubborn or complex blockages in drain pipes.

  • Video Camera inspection
  • Trenchless technology
  • Pipe relining
  • Hydro Jetting

These advanced clogged drain services are typically performed by professional plumbers with specialized training and equipment and can be effective in clearing even the most stubborn and complex blockages.

Video Camera Inspection

With a camera inspection, we can pinpoint a problem in a pipeline quickly. This advanced drain cleaning method is effective because of its time-saving and cost-saving benefits. Also, using this technique, we can quickly clean the drain or identify broken or corroded pipelines that need replacing.

With this equipment, we can also take a video recording of the conditions underground. This technology also means we can show the video to the customer and provide them with a report. If the pipe damage is severe, we can confidently recommend an essential plumbing repair.

Another significant benefit of the camera inspection is that we can see what work must be done underground regarding repairs or new installations.

Trenchless Technology

This technology for drain cleaning, repairs, or installations is minimally invasive. Instead of digging huge trenches that disrupt people, traffic, activities, and services, we can do a trenchless repair or installation.

This technology is non-invasive, so it is far more effective when we must do a new sewer line installation or a gas line installation. It also requires less effort to do this type of cleaning or installation, making it a massive value-add to our residential and commercial customers.

When Do You Need A Drain Cleaning Company?

You will need professional drain cleaning if you notice the following problems at home or the office:

  • Slow drainage – The water is slow to drain from the kitchen sink or bathtub.
  • The water stands for long periods in the bathtub, shower, or sink.
  • Foul odors are noticeable from a drain.
  • The toilet bowl fills or overflows.
  • You can see sewage in the basement or external drains.
  • You see water coming up in one drain when someone is using another.
  • Strange bubbling sounds in drains indicate a problem.
  • Water on the floors or wet wall spots indicate severe drain issues.

If you experience any of these issues, we recommend calling Davis Home Services to assess the situation and provide the necessary repairs or cleaning services.
