Your Drain Cleaning Services questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does drain cleaning cost?

The cost of drain cleaning can vary quite a bit depending on the specific situation. On average, you can expect to pay $100 to $275 to clean one drain, whereas you’ll spend $175 to $600 to clean multiple drains or the main line.

The exact cost will depend on factors like the severity of the clog, the accessibility of the drain, the equipment and methods needed, and your location. Getting quotes from a few local plumbers is recommended to find the best price.

How often should drains be cleaned?

Experts advise scheduling professional drain cleaning every 1 to 2 years, with larger households possibly requiring more frequent maintenance. Regular monthly cleaning using non-toxic enzyme cleaners or a mixture of vinegar, baking soda, and hot water can effectively dislodge and flush away debris such as food particles, oils, and hair, helping to prevent significant clogging issues.

Signs you should schedule a drain cleaner include:

  • Slow drainage
  • Unpleasant odors emanating from drains
  • Gurgling noises in pipes
  • Water accumulation in basement drains
  • Backups in tubs, showers, toilets, or sinks
  • When it’s been over 2 years since the last pipe cleaning.

How long does drain cleaning take?

A simple drain cleaning service, such as snaking the drain, may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete.For more complex clogs that require techniques like hydrojetting or video inspection, the service may take several hours to complete.

Most drain cleaning services typically take roughly 1 to 3 hours to finish, but this can vary based on the type of clog, severity, type of plumbing, and access to the plumbing system.

Can cleaning a drain make the problems worse?

Cleaning a drain can possibly make the problem worse. Improper or excessive use of chemical drain cleaners, as well as not addressing the root cause of clogs, can potentially make drain problems worse over time by damaging pipes. Experts recommend using manual methods or calling a professional plumber to properly clean drains without causing further issues.

What questions should I ask a drain cleaner?

Ask potential drain cleaning services these important questions:

  • Do you carry the necessary licenses, bonds, and insurance?
  • Are your employees compensated on an hourly basis or through commissions?
  • What is your level of expertise in the field of drain cleaning?
  • Do you provide a guarantee or warranty for the services rendered?
  • Can you supply references along with their contact details?
  • What are your operating hours?
  • What additional fees apply for emergency services outside regular hours?
  • How quickly can I schedule an appointment with your service?
  • What recommendations do you have for preventing future plumbing problems?

How do I choose a professional drain cleaning service?

Before hiring a drain cleaning service in your local area, it's important to take the following precautions:

  • Ensure the plumber you select is licensed, bonded, and insured, and has been operating in the industry for at least five years. This helps guarantee their expertise and accountability.
  • Look for plumbers who specialize in drain cleaning services, as they will be equipped with the necessary sewer line cleaning equipment and expertise to handle the job effectively.
  • Review the company's customer reviews on platforms like HomeGuide and Google to gauge their reputation and quality of service.
  • Avoid simply going with the lowest estimate, as this could indicate a compromise in quality. Extremely low, "too good to be true" pricing may result in hidden charges or the need for costly repairs down the line.
  • Be wary of potential scams, as many drain technicians work on commission-based pay structures, which could incentivize unnecessary or overpriced services.
  • Obtain a detailed written contract that clearly outlines all the fees and charges before the work begins, and never pay the full amount upfront.

My almost deaf elderly in-laws needed a plumber do to a blocked toilet, and of course this happened on a Saturday. I jumped on Yelp and started calling around and discovered that most companies were not available until later that evening, it was around 12:30 pm when I started. I finally called Solid Plumbing & Drains and Mario answered his phone right away and was sure he could have someone out there in 2 hours. He stated that if they could make it sooner they would let us know, and sure enough they called and were able to arrive within an hour. Mario and his crew were unable to reach the obstruction with a snake and determined it was further down the line. Since there was not an exterior clean-out Mario had to remove the toilet and to clear the blockage....
