The Importance of Working Drains
Most homeowners don’t think much about their drainage system until it isn’t working correctly. Drains transport wastewater filled with debris away from your home. A drain clog can wreak havoc on the home and create a messy situation. When you notice a sign of a clog, contact us immediately.
Non-Invasive Drain Cleaning
Our plumbing experts perform extensive drain-clearing systems to ensure your pipes are as good as new. We can perform video camera inspections to determine the extent of your drain clog. Our plumbing experts will determine if your pipes will benefit from HydroScrubbing services, trenchless services, or another approach. We utilize innovative plumbing techniques to ensure water flows freely through the pipes.
As the first part of any Kamloops drain cleaning process, inspection involves a thorough look into your pipes by one of our drain cleaning specialists. We’ll use visual inspection first if we do not suspect you have drain damage. If you are frequently experiencing clogs, water leaks, gurgling noises, or foul odors coming from your drains, we’ll use our video equipment to take a look further along into your drains. You could have an unsuspected issue, such as invasive tree roots.
This is the next part of our drain cleaning process. After giving your pipes the go-ahead with video camera inspection, we’ll use this powerful solution, also known as hydro jetting, to blast buildup, debris, hair, soap scum, grease, or whatever else is lurking in your drains through to the city sewers. If we find that you have broken pipes during inspection, we will recommend a different resolution, such as drain pipe repair.
The Risks of DIY Drain Cleaning
The only reason you should attempt to clear a clog yourself is if the clog is small. It’s best to contact our plumbing professionals to ensure your safety and prevent property damage. Commercial drain cleaners easily irritate your skin and eyes and can also damage your pipes. While you can sometimes clear a clog, it’s typically only a temporary solution. Our plumbing professionals will eliminate your clog and ensure your pipes are as good as new.
Treating All Types of Drains
We commonly treat your pipes with environmentally friendly enzymes in our Enzymatic Drain Care and highly pressurized water. We treat all types of clogs and drains, including:
- Clogged Kitchen Drains – Kitchen drains quickly get clogged with fats, grease, soaps, and other food.
- Clogged Bathroom Drains – Toothpaste, toilet paper, soap, and hair clog your drains over time.
- Clogged Utility Room Drains – Utility floor drains often get clogged with dirt and debris that can lead to flooding and poor drainage.
- Clogged Sewer Drains – Your sewer drain carries away wastewater filled with debris and sewage that easily causes blockages.

Frequently Asked Questions About Kamloops Drain Cleaning
What Are the Signs of a Clogged Drain?
We understand the stress of finding sewage backup or fighting with a slow-moving drain. The most common signs you may need residential drain cleaning include the following:
- Slow drains or blocked-up drains
- Gurgling in your toilet
- Foul odors around your drains
- Backed up drains
- Strange soggy areas in your yard
- Backed up toilets
What Causes the Need for Kamloops Drain Cleaning?
The average household puts their drains through the wringer. Between flushing feminine hygiene products to washing grease down the drain, we put our sewer pipes at risk for a drain blockage, a busted pipe—or worse yet, a sewer backup. If it comes to that point, you can trust our reliable sewer system backup service to remedy the situation quickly; however, wouldn’t you rather prevent it from happening in the first place? Knowing what causes the need for Kamloops drain cleaning can help.
Rule of thumb: never put the following down your bathroom sink, kitchen sink, toilet, or shower:
- Cotton swabs
- Baby wipes
- Feminine hygiene products
- Toys or small objects
- Grease or food
Hair is another big cause of clogs, so to ensure a nasty clump of soap scum, hair, and dirt doesn’t form in your shower drains, we recommend using a drain catcher.
How Often Should I Clean My Drains?
It’s common for British Columbia homeowners to constantly “clean” their drains using home remedies such as chemical drain cleaners, a drain auger, and even a solution made from baking soda, hot water, and a cup of vinegar. None of these solutions are truly effective at drain cleaning and are quick fixes that may or may not help dissolve or remove clogs. When you get professional drain cleaning, you’ll only need the service once per year. Cleaning drains once annually is enough to keep your drains in excellent condition; however, you should still follow these basic maintenance and prevention tips to prevent clogs and drain damage year-round.
- Do not use chemical drain cleaners
- Put grease in the trash, not down the drain
- Use a drain catcher in your shower
- Don’t flush food scraps down the toilet
- Never flush feminine hygiene products
