Functional drainage systems are something we take for granted every day. Think of all the oils, food, grooming product, waste, and other assorted gunk that finds its way into your drains. It’s no wonder that drains occasionally suffer from terrible blockage. You’ve probably felt the effects of these clogs in the past: reduced draining speed, strange gurgling noises, and eventual backflow. If you’re noticing these symptoms in your home, it’s time to search for plumbing drain cleaning services.
Effective drain service goes beyond simple plunging, though that may be a small part of it! The most effective plumbing companies understand the long-term causes of clogs and cut the problem off at the source. That means a thorough cleaning of the lining of your pipes, where slime and oils attract waste particles as they flow down the drain.

Sewer Drain Cleaning
All of your home's waste water, whether it originates from a washing machine or a toilet, eventually finds it's way into your sewer drain line. Several smaller drain pipes feed into the main line and out to the city sewer. Blockage may obstruct any given point along the path, though it may take months or years to develop.
In the worst case scenarios, impeded drains may redirect waste water back into the house. This can cause serious sanitation concerns as water starts to flow up through the drains. If the ever happens for your family, discontinue use of that drain for the time being and call our Marietta, GA drain cleaning service at 404-475-3009. Be sure to communicate with the whole family that the area is off limits until the professionals clear it out!
Common Clog Problems
There are multiple hazards that can impede your drain flow. Believe it or not, a common source of plumbing frustration is tree root growth. Roots, sensing the presence of water coming out of your sewer line, extends towards the pipe. With sufficient pressure (and time), roots can crack your sewer line and start growing into the pipe! At that point, extensive repairs or even replacement may be necessary.
Hard water content is another serious problem that can damage your appliances and drain pipes. Like oils and lipids, mineral content may adhere to the side of your drains and snag waste particles as they flow by. The problem slowly escalates over time until the section is completely clogged (or you’ve neutralized it with timely sewer cleaning).
Cleaning Out Your Drains
The method used to clean your drains determines how long the results will last. Simple plunging provides some relief, and it typically removes the majority of the offending mass from the pipe. However, the gunk that allowed the clog to form in the first place will still be there.
Store bought cleaning chemicals offer even weaker results. Sure, they’ll punch a hole in the blockage so that draining can slowly resume. While those chemicals eat away at the blockage however, they’ll also corrode the interior of the pipe. This weakens the integrity of the pipe and reduces its lifespan. When that small hole in the blockage fills back up however, the process starts all over again.
The most effective cleaning solution available now is drain jetting. Also known as hydro jetting, this process uses a high-powered water spray to obliterate blockage (even roots) from your drain pipes. It also eliminates the gunk lining the inside of your pipes for lasting results.
