Signs Your Business Needs Edmonton Commercial Drain Cleaning
Many types of commercial properties, from hospitality to manufacturing, are experiencing problems that require Edmonton commercial drain cleaning, but business owners and employees may not realize what's going on right away. Loud noises while you're using sinks or showers, water that takes too long to drain, and unusual smells are all indications you need drain cleaning services.
Edmonton business owners can benefit from routine maintenance services for older properties, but even newer buildings need regular plumbing services to protect against future problems. There are several signs that your plumbing system needs commercial drain cleaning from our professional plumbers, including:
- Sinks, showers or bathtubs are slow draining so wastewater takes a long time to move out of the fixture and into sewer pipes
- Unpleasant odours coming from drains that smell like rotting food or sewage
- Strange sounds from your wastewater lines such as gurgling, sucking, grinding, screeching or banging
- When you use one fixture, another reacts—for example, if you run water in the bathroom sink, your toilet gurgles
- Visible raw sewage is backing up in low-lying fixtures such as toilets, showers and floor drains
- Your plumbing system clogs up with unusual frequency so you're constantly having to plunge various fixtures

Inspection and Diagnosis
This is an important first step for most professional, commercial drain cleaning services. Our Edmonton drain cleaning technicians take the time to evaluate the condition of your system, checking carefully for hidden issues and the source of your drain problem. One of the tools we may use to accomplish that is high-tech video inspection tools, or other advanced inspection and leak detection methods.
For sewer line inspection, a small camera with an LED light is attached to a flexible cable and lowered into your pipe. An Edmonton plumber will then work the camera through the pipe as it records footage. Once it has been retrieved, your plumber can play back the recording and interpret it to figure out the exact cause and location of your drainage problem.
A video camera inspection is also an excellent way to confirm that the cleaning was successful and your sewer lines are now in good condition. If you are thinking of selling your house in the near future, having proof of clean wastewater pipes can be a very helpful selling tool to convince prospective buyers that the plumbing is in great shape and they won't experience any issues with it right after moving in.
Some run-of-the-mill clogs can be taken care of fairly easily with an auger or even just a basic plunger, but those methods do have some downsides. They grab the main chunks of a blockage and bring it out, leaving behind a lot of buildup and residue—especially fat, oil and grease (FOG). Hydro jetting services are the most effective method to clean out debris and get the interior of your lines sparkling clean so wastewater can be disposed of in a safe, sanitary manner again. This state-of-the-art equipment uses jets of high-pressure water to blast away FOG, clumps of hair, rotting food particles and other soft blockages, which makes it more difficult for clogs to form up again right away because they don't have all that sticky grease to hold clumps of material in place.
Hydro jetting also slows down the deterioration of your lines, because it removes damaging factors that accelerate wear and tear damage. This cleaning method keeps your system in great shape so you can go longer between plumbing replacements. It's a highly recommended form of preventative maintenance—maybe your lines aren't showing any blatant signs of trouble, but it's been a while since they were last cleaned. Hydro jetting services will maintain them so you won't have to deal with major clog-related issues in the future.

What Causes Clogged Drains in Commercial Buildings?
There are many possible causes of a clogged drain, but the types of blockage tend to fall into two categories: hard and soft. Hard blockage includes larger foreign objects such as toys, rocks and other small items like bottle caps or razor blades that end up inside sewage lines and seriously mess with your ability to dispose of wastewater in your plumbing system.
Soft blockage slowly accumulates over time and is created by soap scum, clumps of hair, mineral deposits and solidified grease. You're never going to be able to completely avoid soft blockages, but you can avoid it for longer by keeping other harmful materials out of your system. Dumping liquid grease down your kitchen sink or dirty mop water that is full of hair and other debris in your utility floor drain will create problems for you down the line.
Common clog-causing substances include:
- fats, oils and grease that coat the inside of your lines and create a sticky mess that holds on to anything that follows them down
- Clumps of hair, or individual strands that have become wrapped around other materials and are holding them together in a clog
- Paper towels, tissues and baby wipes, including "flushable" wipes that are not really flushable
- Food scraps, especially waste such as egg shells, rice and coffee grounds that can have a sand-like texture
- Dirt, gravel and soil
- Dental floss and other personal hygiene products
- Tree roots—even trees that aren't on your property can have far-reaching roots that wrap themselves around your pipes, cracking them open and then growing inside
- Shifting soil near buried pipes, caused by landscaping changes, heavy construction nearby, earth tremors or soil erosion
What's the Best Liquid Chemical Cleaner for Commercial Drain Cleaning in Edmonton?
Actually, we don't recommend harsh chemical drain cleaners at all, because they can cause serious damage to your pipes and accelerate the deterioration process, which will lead to your commercial property needing a sewer line replacement sooner rather than later. Harsh chemicals are also really tough on the environment and can get into groundwater, harming local plants and wildlife. In our professional experience, the very best liquid you can use for drain cleaning is water—it just needs to be pressurized by hydro jetting machines. That said, we do use bacterial cleaners as well. These natural cleaners are gentle on your pipes and the environment, but also extremely effective at getting rid of build-up so clogs can't form as easily.
How Often is Commercial Drain Cleaning Service Needed?
It's difficult to say exactly how long you can go between Edmonton commercial drain cleaning appointments because some businesses use their drainage systems almost constantly while other businesses have usage levels that are more comparable to what you would expect with a residential system. So, it really depends a lot on your particular business practices. But it also has a lot to do with how much routine maintenance your commercial plumbing system gets on a regular basis. The better maintained it is, the less need for cleaning services
In general, it's a good idea to call an experienced Edmonton plumber for drain cleaning at least once per year. Even if everything seems to be fine and you don't have a clog, it's a great preventative measure to make sure you don't have to deal with a blockage in the near future. While this advice applies to homes as well as commercial properties, it's most important for your business. A residential plumbing issue is annoying and frustrating, sure, but it usually won't cause as much trouble as a clogged drain at your commercial business. Keep your customers and employees happy by keeping your drainage lines moving with experienced commercial services such as sewer line cleaning.
