What’s Clogging Your Drains?
Everyday, 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 Drain & Rooter 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 Drain & Rooter 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.
