Drain Clearing Services We Offer in the Chicago Area

Our clogged drain services are designed to remove the blockage completely from your system. When we complete the job, there should be no trace of the blockage, allowing water to flow through your system smoothly.

  • Plumbing Inspection Camera

    A sewer line inspection camera is a long, robotic snake with a tiny camera at the end. It allows our plumbers to have a real-time look at what’s going on in your pipes. We can run the camera down your plumbing system and view the blockage on a remote screen. An inspection camera allows us to pinpoint the problem with accuracy.

  • Hydro Jetting

    During hydro jetting our plumbers use specialized tools to push highly pressurized water through your plumbing system. This water can break apart and remove problematic buildup inside your pipes—including grease, mineral and limescale buildup, random debris, and even large items like tree roots.

Leading Causes of Clogged Drains

The main cause of clogged drains is foreign objects that do not belong in the pipes. Homeowners often put things in the system that their pipes or septic tank cannot flush. As a result, these items get lodged in the pipes, which prevents other items from flushing out. Eventually, the pipes get blocked. Here are some common items that cause clogged drains.

  • Hair

    Hair is pulled down the drain and into the pipes in the shower or bath. Over time, hair can intermingle with soap and shampoo residue, creating a blockage that will eventually clog your bathroom drain. You can buy an inexpensive drain guard at many hardware stores to avoid this.

  • Dirt

    If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you will accumulate dirt on your clothes. If there is only a small amount of dirt, it shouldn’t affect your washing machine, but it could clog the draining system over time. Dirt can also clog your bathtub if you regularly wash your pets in the tub.

  • Paper Products

    The only paper product meant to go down a drain is toilet paper; even using too much of that can clog your toilet. Paper can easily become thick and clog drains if you aren’t careful. Flushable wipes may be the worst offenders of this.

  • Tree Roots

    Tree roots seek out moisture in the soil, and if there are any small cracks in your piping, they could begin growing into the pipes. Not only will this create larger cracks in your pipes, but it will also clog the system.
