Why You Should Hire Professionals to Handle Your Drainage Issues in Oregon

The occasional clog or water backup may initially seem manageable, and you may be tempted to try one of several well-known home remedies. These seemingly safe cleaning strategies are not recommended by professionals and can in fact do unintentional damage to your pipes. 

You should not pour liquid chemicals down your drain, even if you bought them from a reputable store. While they may seem initially effective, these volatile chemicals have the potential to corrode and grind down your pipe interiors, jeopardizing their functionality over time. Because they may not fully address the root problems, you will likely have to use these liquid chemicals repeatedly, accelerating the deterioration. Furthermore, these liquid chemicals can be extremely dangerous and may seriously harm you if you inhale or touch them. 

While “drain snakes” can be useful in a pinch, they will only puncture clogs and allow water to temporarily pass through. These crude tools do not fully resolve the residue accumulations that are likely causing the backups in the first place. 

Only licensed plumbers can meticulously evaluate your drainage issue and implement more comprehensive and effective solutions. Avoid the urge to pursue home remedies and get your pipe system the professional attention it needs.

When Should I Schedule Drain Cleaning in Oregon?

Drains and pipe systems naturally accumulate hair, food, grease, sand, and other types of residues over time. While your pipes are likely capable of processing a majority of this debris, some will inevitably cling to the sides of your piping’s interiors. If your pipes are not regularly cleaned, this debris will grow and harden, creating troublesome clogs. 

Most drainage and piping systems should be cleaned every few years. Larger or more sophisticated piping configurations may warrant more frequent attention. Our drain cleaning services in Clackamas County include a full assessment of your property’s drainage network and a recommended maintenance schedule.

It is always best to address possible clogs as quickly as possible. Clogs will typically become more severe and difficult to remove over time. You should consider getting your drains and pipes checked out by a professional as soon as possible if you recognize one or more common warning signs.

Your pipes may need an emergency cleaning if you notice:

  • Unusual bubbling, gargling, or trickling noises
  • Foul odors with no apparent source
  • Water drainage difficulty
  • Multiple apparent and recurring clogs
  • Significant and consistent drops in water pressure
  • Sudden and seemingly unjustified increases in your water bill

How to Prevent and Resolve Drainage Issues

Initiating and investing in a consistent preventative maintenance schedule can help keep your drains and pipes in top form. In addition to regular cleaning, you should also be careful about what goes into your pipes. Try to avoid putting food and coffee down your kitchen drains, and you should attempt to keep hair and soap products from entering bathroom drains. A little effort can go a long way.

If you do notice signs of a clog, immediately scheduling an inspection and cleaning can help limit the scope of the problem. The longer you wait to address drainage and piping issues, the higher the repair bill will likely be.

When you hire our team at Scout Septic, Grease and Drain, we will work to diagnose the drainage issue as swiftly as possible. Our highly trained technicians use state-of-the-art camera equipment to assess the interiors of your pipes and identify the location and severity of clogs. 

One option for eliminating especially stubborn clogs is hydro jetting, a procedure in which pressurized water flushes all types of debris out of your piping system. Hydro jetting can be used as a preventative measure or as a targeted solution for tackling hard-to-reach obstructions. It may not be practical for older drainage systems with fragile pipes.

Our drain cleaning services in Clackamas County are designed to help you get rid of clogs for good. We will explore all available options and provide an accurate and fair estimate of what the cleaning and any necessary repairs will cost. We are also a full-service plumbing company and can also assist you with grease traps and septic tanks
