Municipal Drain Cleaning Portland
Clogged drains are incredibly frustrating when discovered. They prevent municipal facilities from performing adequate waste removal when it is most needed. This is especially important in restaurants and school systems, where sanitation is held under extreme scrutiny for the safety of the public. If blockages are causing problems in such areas, this could point to a bigger issue in the underground systems as a whole.
Should such problems arise, professionals are needed to ensure the safety and sanitation of the buildings the problem is residing within. This is where Apollo Plumbing service steps in. Having serviced Portland’s drain and sewer pipe needs since 1984, our experienced and fully licensed technicians are able to professionally and efficiently deliver expert care when it comes to cleaning and maintaining your pipes. Our guarantee ensures that we always show up on time and quickly perform the work required to get your drains running free and clear once again.
Drains become clogged when grease, hair, dirt and soap scum build up within the pipes, restricting the water flow and reducing the capacity for you to use your utilities. When this debris builds up too much, complete blockages can occur, increasing your risk of flooding in your building. It is important that your employees or students are educated on the proper material that is allowed to be flushed down the toilet in order to reduce the risk of clogs, as well as the importance of using a catchment system for disposing of grease rather than using the kitchen sink.
Getting rid of a small clog may be easy, but if it is occurring too often you will increase the chance of severe damage occurring in the sewer pipe walls. Without paying due care to the health of your pipes, you will eventually have to pay thousands of dollars for a complete repair. With routine maintenance and immediate action when clogs occur, you can reduce your costs and prevent your system from requiring more extreme repair.
Apollo Plumbing Service are committed to delivering the preventative maintenance and due care that your pipes need in order to function perfectly. We start by inspecting the length of your pipes using a camera, identifying problem areas in order to accurately diagnose the point of restriction and what is causing it. We then develop the most optimal strategy to solve the issue for good.
There are a number of methods that we use in order to remove the clog from your system. The easiest and most common way is to use an industrial drain snake. This flexible device is pushed through your pipes until it reaches the clog, at which point it becomes rigid enough to push and loosen the clog with the help of steel brushes. While snaking can remove hair, grease and other small debris, more difficult blockages may require the use of hydro jetting devices. A hydro-jetting machine forcibly breaks down blockages using high-pressure water and can tackle extreme blockages caused by tree roots. This is the ideal solution for pipes that require a more direct approach. Our team will be able to accurately diagnose your issue to determine exactly which method is the most appropriate for the problem you are experiencing.
Clogged drains are an unavoidable part of life and can pose a problem for even the most experienced janitor. In these times, turn to Apollo Plumbing. To discuss your options call us today.
Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Karen Johnson at Apollo Plumbing Service. I have had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Karen. Her knowledge and expertise is a huge advantage to my entire office. I know if I am in a pinch I can call the office and talk to someone! Their customer service is truly amazing, and I have had compliments from customers in the past.

We are a Wendy's Restaurant franchisee in Vancouver, Washington and I want to personally thank Scott and his crew at Apollo for invaluable and excellent service to our restaurants over the last several years. We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
