Drain Cleaning in Reading, PA

Because drain cleaning is necessary to keep your sinks, toilets, showers, and other fixtures working properly, we make it a part of our routine maintenance. Clogged drains can be a nuisance to the entire plumbing system. The most effective way to prevent drain clogs is to clear your pipes on a regular basis, If you find yourself with a clog problem, contact our plumbers for help in Reading, PA and surrounding areas.[/caption]

We Help You Locate the Problem with Our Camera Inspection

If there is a blockage farther in the sewer line, we may use camera pipe inspection to determine the exact location of the clog so we can recommend the best course of action.

A flexible cable with a small camera attached is inserted into the pipeline. The cable follows the line, recording the pipe’s interior as it moves along. We see everything in real time on an attached video monitor. The camera inspection allows us to see exactly what is blocking your drains, whether it’s tree roots, corrosion, excessive grease, sludge, or other debris.

In addition to helping with blocked drain problems, sewer camera inspections are recommended before carrying out hydrojetting or sewer repairs/replacements.

What are Signs You Need Drain Cleaning?

There are many factors that indicate a drain cleaning is due.

A slow drain in your sink signals a blockage in your pipes. If left untreated, it can result in a completely clogged drain, which will require immediate attention.

If you notice other drains backing up when a separate drain is in use, this means there is a clog deep within the sewer line. 

Foul odors coming from your sink, toilet, or shower is another sign that it’s time to have your drains cleaned. Odors are often due to blockages that are rapidly collecting bacteria.

How Often Should You Clean Your Drains?

We recommend drain cleaning at least once a year or as needed.

For commercial drains, it depends on the type of drain and what is discharged into the drain. For example, a restaurant that may have grease or food scraps go down the drain occasionally will need a professional drain cleaning more frequently than a business that does not use their drains as heavily.

Usually a drain cleaning is necessary every 3 months or more. The Plumbing Works can set up and provide a drain maintenance program at your home or business to proactively clean your drains so larger plumbing problems don’t arise.
