The First Step is Always a Chicago Sewer Inspection

Before our plumbers perform any type of sewer repair, cleaning, or replacement, they will first perform a thorough Chicago sewer inspection. During a typical inspection, our sewer specialists run a CCTV camera down your sewer line. They do so to get an inside view of your sewer system, which allows them to prescribe cleaning, repair, and replacement work more accurately. Without an inspection, our plumbers would have to dig massive trenches to access your sewer line. Nobody wants that.

When to Call Our Chicago Drain Cleaning Company

Knowing when it’s time to call in our professional Chicago drain cleaning company is not as complicated as it may seem. Basically, if you’re facing any of the following plumbing problems, then it’s time to get on the phone to get ahold of our professional drain cleaners:

  • Slow-moving drains
  • Bubbling or gurgling noises coming from your drains
  • Foul-smelling drains
  • You notice other backed-up plumbing appliances and fixtures
  • It’s been more than a year since your last professional drain cleaning
  • Whenever you get a sewer inspection that shows signs of drain buildup or obstructions

Before we prescribe the appropriate drain cleaning or plumbing repair services, our team of plumbing professionals will always perform a thorough sewer camera inspection.

During a sewer camera inspection in Chicago, our plumbers insert a CCTV camera, attached to a drain snake, into the affected drain line. Under the supervision of our plumbers, the camera snakes its way through your drain line, giving you and our plumbers an inside view of your drainage system. Armed with the knowledge provided by the camera inspection, our plumbers will prescribe the best and most appropriate drain cleaning or sewer repair services for your needs.

Chicago rooter service is just another method of drain cleaning. However, unlike more traditional drain cleaning methods, rooter service is designed for significant obstructions.

During rooter service in Chicago, our plumbers use a drain snake with a rooter auger. An auger is nothing more than a drill bit that was explicitly designed to break apart and remove drain line clogs and obstructions. Typically, we reserve rooter service for the clogs and blockages that more traditional snaking and drain cleaning can’t handle.

Unfortunately, even rooter service in Chicago sometimes can’t handle extremely severe obstructions like tree roots and fatbergs (piled up grease, fat, and toilet tissue/wipes). For those more significant clogs and blockages, our Chicago drain cleaning company often recommends hydro-jetting service.

Hydro jetting is yet another method of drain cleaning reserved for the most significant clogs and obstructions. Unlike rooter service or traditional drain cleaning, hydro-jetting employs highly pressurized water to break apart clogs and obstructions.

To help wrap your head around exactly what hydro jetting is, it helps to compare the service to more traditional pressure washing. Both tools use pressurized water to break apart and clean messes. However, hydro-jetting machines utilize water under pressure several magnitudes higher than the pressure washers you can rent/purchase at your local hardware or home improvement store.

Moreover, since liquids do not compress under pressure, the additional forces present in hydro-jetting machines translates directly into more significant cleaning power. In fact, hydro-jetting is so powerful that it can break apart tree roots and other seemingly solid drain line obstructions! Cool, right?

Why You Should Never Use Chemical Drain Cleaners

Never, ever use chemical drain cleaners. Reasons that you should avoid using chemical drain cleaners in Chicago include:

  • They can cause damage to your pipes
  • Chemical drain cleaners are harmful to the environment
  • They can cause damage to your septic system
  • Chemical drain cleaners often do not work as well as they should, leading to worse clogs
  • They are caustic, corrosive, and highly toxic to people, children, and pets
