Our Professional Drain Cleaning Services

While over-the-counter drain cleaning products might seem cost-effective, the long-term damage they can cause to your pipes can cost you more in repairs down the road. At A.B. May, we take a cleaner approach to drain clog removal, using chemical-free solutions to eliminate stubborn blockages. Depending on the severity of your clog, we may recommend hydro jetting, which involves using a high-pressure water jet to blast through grease, sludge, tree roots, and other debris easily.  

Signs You Need Drain Cleaning

Not sure if you have a clog in your shower, tub, or sink drains? Here are a few signs that indicate it’s time to hire a professional for drain cleaning:

  • Slow draining water: If you notice that water from toilets, sinks, tubs, or showers is slow to drain, there may be a blockage to blame.
  • Gurgling sounds: If you hear gurgling noises in your drains or pipes, air could be trapped due to a severe drain clog.
  • Foul odors: Unpleasant smells from your drains can indicate organic matter buildup that must be cleared.
  • Backups and overflow: Simultaneous backups in multiple drains are a sure sign of a blockage impacting your system.
  • Recurring clogs: Frequent clogs in the same drain can indicate a significant underlying issue that needs to be professionally assessed.
  • Water pooling in the yard: Standing water near the sewer lines in your yard can indicate a clog or blockage in the main sewer line.

Video Camera Inspections for Clogged Drains

The best way to address drain clogs is by pinpointing the precise location and cause of the issue. At A.B. May, our plumbing professionals use sophisticated video camera pipe inspection technology to snake a camera through your system and identify the root cause of your blockage. Once we find the clog, our team can assess the extent of the damage and determine the right method to clear it.

How To Prevent Clogged Drains

While having a trusted plumber is great, it’s important to understand how to avoid the need for drain clog removal altogether. Here are a few prevention techniques you can try:

  • Use drain screens: Install a drain screen in your sinks, bathtubs, and showers to catch hair, food particles, soap scum, and other debris.
  • Proper grease disposal: Avoid pouring cooking grease or oil down the drains, collecting it in a container, and throwing it away in the trash instead.
  • Mindful toilet flushing: Only flush toilet paper and human waste down your toilet — not paper towels, sanitary napkins, baby wipes, or cotton balls.
  • Clear away hair: Remove hair from your shower or bathtub drains regularly using a drain snake to extract accumulated hair.
  • Run hot water: After using the kitchen sink or garbage disposal, run hot water for several minutes to melt and flush away grease and food particles.
