Sewer and Drain Cleaning
There are few things that are worse than the sewer smell that occurs when a drain is severely clogged. When you call our Lee's Summit plumbers, we will send out a professional to provide sewer and drain cleaning services and help eliminate the stench of the sewer. Below are the steps we will take. If you have any questions about our sewer and drain cleaning process, we are more than happy to answer them for you!
Our plumbers will first locate the clogged drain. We will save you the time and hassle of locating the clog, as this can require some practice. We also don't want you to have to deal with the mess. We professionally clean up after ourselves for a reason.
When the issue is just in one location, then we'll know that we need to clear the drain attached to that fixture. If there is a clog in the main system, none of the drains will work, and it will become obvious fast. Our first and easiest step will be determining if the problem is with a fixture trap such as the toilet. If that doesn't work, we will use a machine to punch a hole through the root of the clog in the main system. Once the hole is punched we can remove the obstruction or debris that is causing the clog.
Because we respect your time and property, we will bring plenty of buckets and towels. Removing clogs can sometimes get messy, and we will not allow damage to occur as a result of removing the cleaning plug.
We will plug the machine into an outlet. We will use a grounded outlet for safety. When the machine is approximately three feet from the cleanout opening, the machine will be set to the "Forward" position. We will use a footswitch to feed the cable to the drain.
As we feed the cable into the drain, the clog will become apparent when the tension in the cable increases. We also listen for the motor to slow down. Once we locate the clog with the machine we are able to remove it. We will then clean the sides of the pipe with a tool. Finally, we will pull the cable back up while using a hose at the same time to clean it off. This takes care of two things; not only is the cable clean, but we can ensure the clog is fully removed as the water goes down the drain.
Before we leave, we will replace the cleanout plug that we pulled out earlier. We want to seal the threads, so we'll make sure to bring Teflon plumber's tape. We might use an expansion plug if the fitting is too damaged or rusty from the moisture caused by the clog.
