Clogged sewer pipes can escalate into a plumbing catastrophe if Seattle residents do not actively clean them. Some common issues include standing water, blocked drains, and in extreme cases, raw sewage blockages. N.W. Sewer & Drain has compiled some general tips and knowledge about drain cleaning to maintain an actively working sewer line.

Be Careful with Using Store Bought Drain Cleaners

It may seem like an easy solution to buy store bought drain cleaners from a convenience store. However, the corrosive chemicals in these cleaners’ damage sewer pipes. When a Seattle homeowner dumps them down the drain, they often sit in pipes and eventually corrode the material. N.W. Sewer & Drain’s plumbing services can swiftly resolve clogged drains without the risk of chemical leaks. We use drain snakes to resolve blocked drains and restore water flow to pipes.

Drain Snakes are a Safer Option to Regularly Clean Pipes

Snaking is a more hands-on drain cleaning method that is best tackled by our plumbing professionals. Drain stoppages occur in bathrooms and sinks due to materials such as hair, grease, and soap scum forming in drain pipes. A main reason to conduct regular drain cleaning is to avoid chronic stoppages from these substances. A grade auger, called a snake, tunnels into pipes and removes pesky blockages without damaging the interior. If clogged pipes are neglected and cause standing pools of water, hydro jetting can solve the problem.

Hydro Jetting—A Deep Cleaning Solution to Clogged Pipes

Unlike grade augers, which have a limited reach into pipes, hydro jetting is among the most effective ways to fix congested pipes. Our plumbers position a hose into the pipes and switch on the nozzle that streams a high-powered jet of water. This blast of water reaches deep into sewer lines and can even remove tree roots. Seattle residents typically select hydro jetting when drain clogs threatens the entire sewer line with frequent backups.
