Our Expert Services for Drain Cleaning in Abbotsford, BC

We all use plumbing on a regular basis, which means every one of us is bound to encounter a clogged drain at some point—in fact, the only people who never, ever have to cope with unpleasant drainage issues are the ones who invest in regular, preventative Abbotsford drain cleaning.

Most of the time, a clog is just that—a basic problem that can be handled fairly easily with a plunger and a little bit of hard work. But occasionally, you come across a really stubborn clog and the plunger doesn't really make any difference at all, or worse, you're pretty sure you got it under control because the water is draining, but the very next time you use that fixture it's mysteriously clogged again. That's not a sign that the universe is against you, but it may very well be a sign that indicates a more serious issue like tree root intrusion or a broken wastewater line. Our Abbotsford drain cleaning crew has the skill and equipment to find out what exactly the problem is and eliminate it so you can get back to using your drainage lines again.

Hydro Scrub® Jetting

If your Abbotsford drain cleaning appointment is for preventative maintenance purposes or you need help clearing a soft blockage formed by substances such as solidified grease, clumps of hair, and rotting food scraps, your plumber will use HydroScrub® jetting as their preferred tool for choice. Hydro-mechanical drain cleaners use high-pressure water jets to blast debris and clog-causing substances out of your wastewater disposal lines. Since the process effectively removes sticky substances that are clinging to the inside of your pipes, unlike other methods like augering, it's an excellent way to preserve the condition of your wastewater system and avoid future problems like clogged drains, burst pipes, and sewage backups. It also keeps your lines in good shape for longer because they aren't taking wear and tear damage from clogs, so you can avoid frequent repair and replacement calls.

Frequently Asked Questions About Abbotsford Drain Cleaning

How Do I Know If Abbotsford Drain Cleaning Services are Necessary?

One of the best ways to determine if you need Abbotsford drain cleaning services is to simply look at a calendar. If it's been more than a year since your last appointment, it's time to schedule professional drain cleaning. Abbotsford, BC homeowners may prefer to wait until there's a noticeable problem before they consider calling a plumber—but how exactly do you know if you have an issue that warrants drain cleaning?

Abbotsford, BC plumbers say there are plenty of possible signs that trouble is coming down the pipe, and they aren't all as obvious as many homeowners expect. Signs to be aware of include:

  • Musty or rotten smells coming out of drains
  • Odd reactions from fixtures, like the toilet gurgling if you use the bathroom sink
  • Low water pressure in one fixture only
  • Weird noises from wastewater lines that sound like bubbling, sucking, grinding or gurgling
  • The kitchen sink or floor drain has gnats or sink flies hanging around it
  • Wastewater backing up in fixtures close to the floor, such as floor drains and bathtubs

If you see issues such as these cropping up with your system, it's a good idea to call your local plumber for Abbotsford drain cleaning service sooner rather than later to get it taken care of before it gets out of control.

Do Baking Soda and White Vinegar Work for Drain Cleaning?

Abbotsford, BC plumbing technicians like natural household remedies, but they will not solve deeper underlying problems. You may have seen a recipe for a DIY drain cleaner that involves mixing a half cup of baking soda and a half cup of table salt, pouring it into your drain, and following it with a cup of vinegar, which creates a fizzy reaction. You can try this if you really want to, but in all likelihood, it's not going to do much that couldn't be accomplished more easily with other methods. Your drain is not a closed environment, so it's not going to create an explosive reaction like it does in all those grade school volcano projects—it'll basically just fizzle harmlessly for a few minutes without doing much to help. However, you could successfully scrub the sink drain clean with the paste.

We also don't recommend trying the pot of boiling water trick, mainly because the potential for injury when carrying a pot of boiling water around the house is a lot higher than people tend to think. Most modern pipe types (PVC or PEX) can handle hot water, but using boiling water could lead to your waste lines melting.
