How Do I Clear a Drain Blockage?

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? One moment, you’re washing dishes or taking a shower, and the next, the water just refuses to drain away.

It’s like your home is telling you, “Clean your room!” But in this case, it’s your pipes that need help because you have a clogged drain. We at Barker and Sons Plumbing see this day in and day out. So, how do you clear your drain?

The Culprits of Clogged Drains

Drain blockages often start quietly, building up over time until they demand attention. In most homes, the usual causes include accumulated hair, soap scum, grease, and food particles.

Even things that seem harmless, like rinsing off plates or washing hair, can lead to a buildup that narrows the pipes and reduces water flow.

At Barker and Sons, we have the perfect remedy, hydro jetting, a spa treatment for your pipes. It can blast away years of gunky buildup and restore them to their original, free-flowing condition.

Routine Drain Maintenance

Our routine drain cleaning maintenance service is your best defense against unexpected blockages. Think of it as regular health check-ups for your pipes, ensuring they’re clear, clean, and functioning at their best.

Our skilled technicians use a variety of hydro jetting machines to fit all different sizes of pipes. We insert a hose into the affected pipes and blast the clog with as much as 3,500 PSI worth of water pressure. It’s thorough, effective, and, most importantly, gentle on your pipes but tough on clogs.
