Pipe Clog Services in Portland and Gresham, OR
Slow drains are minor annoyances that can build up and cause clogs and constant backups. At Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc., our experienced technicians can identify the cause of your pipe clogs and use green, eco-friendly methods to get the blockage out. Your Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA sewer lines will be restored and you'll be free to go about your day.
What's Clogging Your Drains?
Every day, we throw out hundreds, even thousands of household debris into waste bins and kitchen and bathroom drains. While most of these items pass through harmlessly, solid objects can become trapped and attract other material, eventually causing a clog.
At Apollo Plumbing Service Inc., we use the latest and most innovative solutions to maximize our customer's savings. The first thing our capable technicians will do is to locate the source of the pipe clog problem. For this, we use a special camera affixed to a flexible fiber-optic line.
Each drain in your house may have a specific material that's causing the problem.
- Kitchen Sink: The main culprit for clogged pipes are kitchen grease and food particles.
- Bathroom Sink: Hair is shed whenever we take a bath or a shower. Residue from soap, shampoo, and toothpaste often get stuck inside the pipes.
Shower: Dirt, skin flakes, and soap scum build up as calcified matter and shrink your pipe's inner diameter and flow over time.
- Toilets: A clogged toilet can bring the day's activities to a halt. Flushing incorrect items down the toilet, including baby wipes, dental floss, and feminine hygiene products can stay in the pipe and cause immediate backups and overflow.
Apollo Drain Cleaning Methods for Removing Clogs
At Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc., we recommend trenchless technologies and use the eco-friendly way to clean drain pipes whenever viable, but may still expertly execute traditional methods depending on the pipe condition.
Snaking, or cabling entails the use of a coiled metal that's fed down to any open drain. Our expert technicians maneuver the snake to dislodge stuck debris and restore flow. This is our recommended method for clearing out hair and solid objects stuck in your shower or bathtub drains.
Our technicians can operate a rotating cable with a blade attached and feed it down the problem pipe. The blades cut through the accumulation of calcified matter, tree roots, soap, grease, and other objects to restore sewer function.
Instead of using commercially-produced drain cleaning chemicals, our technicians use highly pressurized water to clean your pipes. The hydro jetting equipment puts out jets of water, taking away clogs formed due to hard water, scale, and mineral buildup. Moreover, all grease, soil, dirt and tree roots are dislodged and carried away to the nearest municipal treatment plant. In the end, you'll have a new pipe that has a restored diameter.

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.
