It is crucial to keep the drains in your house in top condition so that your home is clean and hygienic. It is natural for homeowners to forget about their drains’ existence as long as they are free-flowing.

Drain Cleaning

Over time, your home’s drains accumulate wastewater and waste materials, such as grease, oil, and soap, just like any other structure in your home. Due to the years of wear and tear, the drain pipes suffer from clogs and further damage, which can cause costly repairs or replacements. We recommend drain cleaning regularly to keep your drains healthy, free-flowing, and damage-free. Unfortunately, many homeowners ignore their sewer and other drains until a clog develops, leading to extensive damages that owners could have avoided with proper care.

Sewer Drain Cleaning

The main sewer drain or sewer line removes all the wastewater from the other drain pipes and sends it to either a septic tank or the municipal sewage system. The sewer drain pipe is a 4-inch pipe, and it can often experience wear and tear, clogs, or other issues like tree root invasion that can cause damage to it. Just like all the drains in the house, you need to be highly mindful of damage to the sewer drain, as this can lead to structural damage to your home’s foundation. Regular maintenance and hydro jetting can protect the drain pipe from getting clogged or damaged before its lifespan ends.

Signs Your Sewer Needs A Drain Cleaning

As a homeowner, it’s good to be mindful of signs that indicate damage or clogs in your drain. Awareness of these signs can help you promptly contact a drain cleaning partner, ultimately preventing costly repairs and further damage to your plumbing system.

Slow Drainage: If you start noticing that water is draining slower than usual or pooling up in the bathroom or kitchen sink, there is a high chance that your drain requires cleaning or repair.
Lush Green Patches of Grass: If your sewer drain is broken, leaking, or damaged, you might notice exceptionally green patches of grass in your yard or lawn, depending on the drain pipe’s location.
Debris in Fixtures: If you notice debris or any other material coming out of your plumbing fixtures, chances are that there is severe clogging in your pipes, which could have resulted from clogs inside your drains.
Wet Spots: Are you noticing wet spots around the house on the wall, floor, or ceiling? A drain pipe leak might be the culprit behind this.
Maintenance Services

Maintenance Services

Home drain maintenance is an essential service that helps keep your drains functional and in good shape. Even though it may not seem as significant as other maintenance tasks around the house, it can save you from costly expenses like trenchless drain pipe repair and replacement in the long run. Regular drain maintenance helps prevent wear and tear, clogs, and other kinds of build-up and allows your plumber to spot any potential problems with the drainage system before they become severe.

We understand the importance of maintaining your drains and taking a proactive approach. A typical drain maintenance service begins with a visual sewer inspection that uses a high-definition inspection camera to look inside your pipes and drains. The camera captures video footage of the interior of the line, enabling the trained technician to identify any issues or obstructions that may be present.

Based on what we find in the video inspection, we will develop a personalized plan of recommendations to ensure that your sewer drain system stays in top condition. Often, the examination provides nothing more than peace of mind to the home or business owner. In some instances, we may suggest regular drain cleanings to remove buildup and debris as a preventative and proactive approach that helps to reduce recurring problems and extends the lifespan of your plumbing system.

Here are the drain maintenance services we offer:

Regular cleaning

Professional companies like Ben’s Plumbing use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques like hydro-jet drain cleaning to keep your drains clean and free-flowing. Hydro jetting, or water jetting, is a highly effective technique for clearing clogged or obstructed pipes, sewer drains, and lines.

Tree Root Removal

Tree roots can be pesky and spread quickly, causing significant damage and clogging the drains. Our main sewer drain cleaning service includes the removal of these roots and the clearing of your drains.

Grease Trap Maintenance

Establishments or factories that generate grease, fats, oils, and food waste should invest in great trap clearing to prevent plumbing problems. Grease trap cleaning is essential to proper waste management for commercial properties like restaurants, bakeries, food processing plants, and other businesses, as the main grease trap can easily get damaged or clogged.

Most homeowners do not need to be concerned with grease trap cleaning. Prevent grease buildup and keep your sewer line flowing by avoiding pouring grease, oils, fats, and food scraps down the drain.

For most homeowners, regular drain maintenance is optional. However, it can save you money in the long run by reducing the need for frequent repairs and replacements.

Cost Savings: When your drains are flushed or cleaned out regularly and managed properly, you will save money that would otherwise be spent on hefty repairs and replacements.
Prevention of Blockages: A clean drain means fewer clogs and other buildups that can cause blockages and backups in the house.
Improvement of Plumbing’s Lifespan: Damaged drains can lead to damaged and worn-out pipes, which can later damage your entire plumbing system and your home’s foundation. Regular maintenance helps prevent this.
Promotes Health and Safety: A properly maintained drain system keeps bacteria at bay and prevents pest infestations and other health hazards.

Cost of Drain Cleaning & Repair

Regular drain cleaning with home remedies like vinegar and baking soda is effective if the problem is minor. However, when you have frequent blockages and backups, it is best to call a plumbing drain repair and cleaning professional to provide an inspection and resolve the issue.

Drain cleaning and repair costs vary depending on the problem’s severity, the drain’s location, and the extent of the repair needed. The price may be higher if you require drain cleaning or repair services outside regular business hours or on holidays.

If a video inspection is required to diagnose the cause of the drain issue, an additional cost may apply. The price of video inspections typically varies based on factors such as the inspection’s duration and the complexity of the plumbing system. Video inspections can be cost-effective in the long run by identifying the precise location and issue and providing your skilled technicians with the necessary information to clear or repair your drain.

Our team will assist you in making an informed decision and ensure you receive quality service at a reasonable price.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
What do plumbers use to unclog drains?

There are a few methods plumbers use to unclog drains. Often, before attempting to clear the drain, a plumber may conduct a video inspection to assess the cause and location of the clog. Video cameras are inserted into the drain and provide real-time video footage of the pipe’s interior, allowing the professionals to identify the most effective method for clearing the blockage.

Unclogging methods include snaking, rooter service, or hydrojetting. The specific technique to resolve the clog will depend on several factors, so consulting with a qualified plumber to assess your drain issues is always advised.

What is included in a drain cleaning?

A drain service usually begins with an initial assessment to determine the location and severity of the blockage. Once the plumber has identified the cause and place, they will use the necessary tools and techniques to clear it. After removing the blockage, the technician may conduct a visual inspection or use a video inspection camera to inspect the interior of the drain line. This inspection allows them to confirm that the blockage has been removed. The video inspection also will enable them to identify and address any underlying issues that may cause problems in the future.

It is essential to hire a qualified plumber like those at Ben’s Plumbing to perform draining clearing. Professional plumbing contractors will ensure that the job is done safely and effectively. The licensed plumbers at Ben’s Plumbing advise customers on maintaining their drains to prevent future issues.

How much does a drain flush-out cost?

A drain flush-out, or a drain flushing service, is a plumbing procedure used to clear debris, sediment, and buildup from a drain line by forcefully flushing water through the pipes. The flushing process typically uses high-pressure water jets like hydro jetting to dislodge and flush away obstructions.

The cost of a drain flush-out varies and depends on several factors, including the size and location of the drain and the severity of the buildup or blockage.

It’s essential to consult with a qualified plumber to assess your drain issue and determine if a drain flush-out is the most appropriate solution. Ben’s Plumbing can give a detailed cost estimate based on your specific situation and suggest the best action to address your issue effectively, ensuring proper drainage in your plumbing system.

Should I get my drains cleaned?

Even if you don’t have any apparent issues, regular drain cleaning is a proactive measure that can save you time, money, and headaches in the long run.

Keeping your drains clean and free-flowing helps prevent clogs, blockages, and backups before they occur. Removing buildup, debris, and potential obstructions from your drains will increase your plumbing system’s lifespan, give the homeowner peace of mind, add value to your home, and make for a healthier home environment.

A video inspection is the best way to determine if your drain pipes need cleaning. A licensed professional can conduct a video inspection and will provide you with a comprehensive assessment detailing the condition of your drain pipes, including any signs of deterioration, corrosion, or damage. This technique allows the plumber contractor to understand the current state of your plumbing systems and determine if you should invest in drain cleaning services.

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Our water heater decided to start leaking at 3pm on a Friday and the team at Ben's Plumbing got back to me quickly, got me a bid that wasnt outrageous, and scheduled me for their first slot on Monday morning. The installers arrived on time, were quick, thoughtful, and did great work. I'd totally recommend Ben's Plumbing to anyone.

Nic from Ben’s Plumbing was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING fixing the leak from our toilet yesterday with skill and finesse! Upon arrival, he immediately expertly assessed the problem(s) and proposed an excellent approach, with options, to resolve the issues. I had complete confidence in his capability to handle the expected and unexpected with this repair. I highly, highly recommend Nic (and Ben’s Plumbing) for any work, and we will be coming back again for additional projects and needed repairs at our house. Nic is an excellent communicator and explained everything clearly to a plumbing novice, answered all of my questions, was extraordinarily neat in opening up the drywall and then tidying up at the end of his work. Because of the blessing to me of Nic, I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that a trustworthy repair has been completed. Thank you, Nic, and Ben’s Plumbing!
