Drain Cleaning

Drain Cleaning

Over time, your home’s drain lines accumulate grime, hair, food, sediment and other matter, which can gradually create blockages. If you have a blocked drain line, don’t rely on store-bought drain cleaner to solve the problem—this will only provide a short-term fix at best. What’s more, drain cleaning products can damage your pipes and bring potential safety risks. A better solution is to call a plumbing company that can provide professional-grade drain cleaning services. Oro Pro Plumbing is adept at solving drain problems and has the equipment to handle all types of situations.

The most common plumbing tools used for drain cleaning are the sewer snake and the hydro jetter. A snake is a flexible auger that bores a hole through the drain line to clear the obstruction. A hydro jetter is a machine that clears drain lines with high-pressure water and different attachable heads. Based on the nature of your issue, your Oro Pro Plumbing technician will determine which drain cleaning method is best.
