Las Vegas Drain Cleaning & Camera Inspections
We Know how to Handle Tough Clogs & Other Problems
One of the most common plumbing issues that homeowners face is clogged drains. There are numerous things going down your drains every day that contribute to the buildup of debris within the pipes—things like hair, soap, grease, dirt, and food waste. Even if water were the only thing going down your drain, over time, the minerals from the water would still accumulate on the walls of the pipes, leading to slow drains and blockages.
When one of your drains is clogged, we highly recommend you do not use store-bought cleaners. These typically only provide a temporary solution and can even damage your plumbing system. Instead, call in our Las Vegas drain cleaning and camera inspection pros at Hydro Plumbing. We use safe and effective methods to give your drain a thorough cleaning.
Professional Camera Inspections for Your Drain
Our video camera inspections take the guesswork out of drain repair. When your sink is draining slowly or not at all, our high-tech video equipment will identify the source of the clog. Once we determine the nature of the blockage and where it is located, we can select the best method for clearing your drain.
Benefits of a Camera Inspection
Drain camera inspections help provide us with the most complete information about your entire drain system. By collecting video footage of your plumbing, we get to skip a lot of trial and error when trying to identify the source of whatever issue you're currently facing, as well as pick up the beginnings of potential future hazards like tree roots pushing their way through small cracks or the beginning signs of deterioration. A camera inspection can also help prepare your home for a bathroom remodel by ensuring that your pipes can handle the increased water flow.
You don’t really think about the internal workings of your plumbing until something goes wrong, and at that point you could be dealing with some serious repairs. Spotting warning signs that your drains need to be cleaned is a great to stop future problems in their tracks.
Common signs your home needs drain cleaning include:
- Clogs: We’re starting with the most obvious. If you are experiencing a clog, or multiple clogs in the same drain, it is clear you need a professional to look at that drain. It could be that you have excessive buildup, which would make hydro jetting a potential solution.
- Slow drainage: Maybe you don’t have a clog, but the drains of your sink or shower aren’t moving as quickly as they used to. This can be due to either debris buildup or leak, so a camera inspection can help pinpoint the problem to receive a more accurate fix.
- Gurgling: The “blub, blub” noise coming from your drain might not seem like a big deal, but it is a warning sign that bigger issues might not be too far behind. It could indicate clogs and if pressure continues to build, it can cause a burst pipe.
- Unpleasant odor: If you notice a foul sewage odor, you might be experiencing a clog further down in your system, leading to waste buildup.
Common Causes of a Clogged Drain
The best way to keep your drains clear of debris and clogs is to know what the main culprits of these blockages are. In our experience, the most common causes of a clog include:
- Food waste is the number one cause of clogs in your kitchen sink. You should never try to flush food of any kind down the drain, even if you have a garbage disposal. It may delay the problem from building up, but you will inevitably need to call in a professional to clear it out after a while.
- Dirt can easily start to build up and clog your drain, especially in the shower or bathtub. It’s best to wipe off as much as possible outside your home – in particularly dirty situations, you may even want to hose yourself off in the garden before taking a shower inside.
- Hair is especially frustrating because it can bind with other substances like soap scum, grease, and more to quickly build up a blockage, usually in your bathroom ink or other bathroom fixture.
- Soap is another major culprit. Using soap to get clean is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing but be aware that you will likely need to clear out the buildup every now and then. Setting up regular drain cleanings can help prevent you from needing to pay for a complete clog removal.
- Tree roots often cause the most serious clogs, and will likely need to be fixed with a complete pipe replacement or repair. The longer you wait to get this problem fixed, the larger the roots will grow, leading to a far more expensive fix.
