What do drain cleaners do to my pipes?
Drain cleaners are chemicals and they can be quite caustic. Older pipes are much more susceptible to degradation from drain cleaners because the older pipes become porous providing a place for the chemicals to reside and continue to eat your pipes from the inside out. Some people have PVC or plastic pipes. Certain chemicals interact with plastic creating heat, which over time can cause the pipes to bend, warp, melt, or even burst. We do not recommend chemical drain cleaners as you can tell. Plus, drain cleaners terrible for the environment. Before you pour a bunch of chemicals down the sink, please call a plumber for your Santa Rosa drain cleaning needs.
How much does drain cleaning cost?
Drain cleaning costs vary from home to home and business to business. A lot depends on the amount of plumbing you have, do you have a clog, and where specifically is that clog. For example, a clog from a laundry drain may be a little more expensive due to the labor intensiveness of having to move the washing machine and getting access to the drain itself. Typically, we charge anywhere between $150 to $400 for drain cleaning and clearing out a clog. The cost alone makes a great argument to perform annual drain cleaning with a Santa Rosa Plumber.

How often should you clean your drains?
Over time our pipes accrue debris like oil and hair and this debris build up until your drain becomes obstructed. The goal is to never get to a complete blockage, which I am sure you are all aware would be a plumbing emergency. Santa Rosa Plumbing Service (Link) recommends an annual drain cleaning. The point is to remove debris that may be building up before it becomes a problem. Once you have a layer of debris in your pipes, it becomes much easier for more debris to latch on and build up at a much faster pace. That is why it is important to clean your drains even when you don’t notice any of the symptoms. Drain cleaning annually is also a great way to maintain the efficiency of your plumbing.
Do you need drain cleaning or sewer cleaning?
Good question! We unfortunately don’t know until we inspect the property. Be sure you understand the difference between drain and sewer lines. Drains collect all the water and deliver it to the sewer lines, which then removes the water from the property and to the communal sewer. If your sewer line is clogged, you have a big problem on your hands. We recommend you have your sewer lines inspected and cleaned every 18-22 months. We perform video inspections of your sewer lines, which gives us an excellent view of what is really going on. The average cost of a sewer line video inspection can range anywhere from $250 to $750. There is quite a it of variability in sewer lines from home to home, which is why there is such a large price range. Give us a call today to schedule your sewer line inspection.
