There are several ways a plumber can clean your drains. The most common method is to insert a nozzle deep down into the drain, then high-pressure water comes out of the nozzle to clear out the drain. The pressure is high enough to clear out any debris that is on the pipe walls that can cause clogging. Another way plumbers clean out drains is the use of motorized drain snakes. The snake is a long metal coil that goes into the drain until it reaches a clog. At that point, the motor rotates the snake until it breaks up whatever is causing the clog.
A drain that seemingly takes forever to empty can surely be an annoyance, but even worse is one that's completely clogged and won't drain at all. If you reside in the Miami or Orlando, FL area, you can always count on Express Trenchless Sewer Line Repairs to be there with drain cleaning services.

If your home has drains that seemingly clog quite a bit, there are some simple things you can do to prevent clogging.
We at Express Trenchless Sewer Line Repairs do not recommend using cleaners that contain harsh chemicals. Rather, use a "green" or environmentally-friendly one to prevent and clear slowly-emptying drains. You can also use ½ cup of baking soda followed by 1 cup of vinegar and wait for about 10 minutes. Then, rinse the drain with hot water.
Secondly, never ever dump grease from cooking down the drain. Throw it out with the trash instead. If you prefer, pour the grease into a container such as an empty coffee can to harden before placing it in the trash.
Also, run hot water through your drains. Ideally, this should be done after each use. If you have drains you seldom use, be sure to do this on a weekly basis.
Finally, use strainers whenever possible and keep them clean.
Clogged drains are inevitable unless proper maintenance is provided to your pipes. You know you have a clog when water begins to redirect itself and cause anything from backups and flooding to slow drainage and low pressure.
Common causes of clogged drains include tree roots, fat, oil, grease, feminine hygiene products, and hair. If you hope to prevent clogs, calling our plumbing contractors and keeping a watchful eye on your property is crucial. If you know you have trees with large roots, keep up on the maintenance. Make it known in your home about keeping food waste, hair, and other items away from your toilet and pipes.
