Drain and Sewer Cleaning
We find the root of the problem every time—no matter how stubborn your clog is, it’s no match for Paul's Plumbing. We have more than 25 years of plumbing experience and are ready to assist you in a fast, friendly and professional manner. We also offer emergency services for when that clog catches you at the worst possible time.
Main sewer lines are the largest drains in a home. All other household drains lead to the main sewer line. The main sewer runs underground from the house and connects to a city sewer line. Your main sewer line can become clogged from the debris those other household drains wash into it or by tree roots that penetrate pipe joints from surrounding soil.
If the main sewer line clogs, toilets and drains throughout your house will begin to backup. This is usually a very stressful situation for homeowners and it can happen at any time. Paul's Plumbing will cut through the clog and clean the main sewer pipe from either a cleanout or even from the roof if needed.
No Cleanout? Let Paul's Plumbing install one for future ease and cost savings. See FAQ for information on if you need to have a cleanout installed.
Kitchen drains clog over time. They run slower and slower as greases, soaps, fats and detergents build up on the inner walls of the pipes and eventually cause blockage. Paul's Plumbing specializes in kitchen plumbing jobs and will cut through the clog and remove all debris. Your kitchen drainpipes will be as good as new.
Laundry drains back up occasionally with debris, soaps and fabric softeners. And sometimes they are on the same drain line as the kitchen sink. When you start your dishwasher and washing machine at the same time and a build up has started there could be a problem. We promise to clear the clog and let you get back to your laundry cleaning.
Shower and tub drains present their own challenges. The clog culprit is usually hair and soap buildup in the trap and drainpipe. When you're taking a shower you should never see standing water in the stall or tub. Properly functioning drains should carry the water away almost instantly. If water covers the shower floor and your feet, you have a clogged shower drain, which will eventually become completely blocked. We will use a tub and shower drain cleaning machine to cleanse the drain of any and all debris, restoring it to new condition. Bathroom sink drains may become clogged with hair, toothpaste, soap and grime. Paul's Plumbing provides many bathroom plumbing solutions and sink drains are one of the more common problems we solve. We will remove the clog and thoroughly clean the entire pipe so your sinks will drain like new.
Toilet drains are sometimes overwhelmed with toilet paper and even the occasional kid's toy. We can solve the problem with a drain machine that feeds a spinning cable into the toilet drain. The cable has special spring loaded blades on the tip that will cut through any obstruction while hugging the inside wall of the pipe and thoroughly cleaning it to restore full drainage and powerful flushes.
Floor drains are common in basements, laundry rooms and garages. They may also be found on patios and driveways as well as older bathrooms. These drains are equipped with a trap that should be kept filled with water to prevent odors and sewer gas from escaping. Test drains occasionally to make sure they are aren't clogged and are ready to carry away water and prevent flooding. Dirt and debris can clog floor drains but Paul's Plumbing can open them quickly to restore good drainage.
