Why You Need To Clean Your Drains

The drain and sewer lines in your Elkhart home are a complicated web of piping. Even when you’re diligent about keeping food and other solids out of your drain lines, particles will start to build up. Over time, those tiny particles can create a clog, causing slow drains or even drain back-ups into your home!

To keep your drains running effectively, you need to clean them regularly. An annual professional drain cleaning will ensure the pipes in your home are obstruction-free, without the harsh chemicals that can harm your plumbing.

Regular drain cleaning also eliminates the bacteria and germs that can cause foul odors and attract pests into your home.

Church’s experts can help you clean your drains! Call us at 574-295-6844 to schedule an appointment or contact us online today!

Signs You Need To Clean Your Drains

A toilet that won’t flush indicates that something is clogging your drains, but other signs show a professional drain cleaning is needed in your Elkhart home. Knowing what to look for in keeping your drains and sewer lines working correctly is an integral part of home ownership.

Here are some of the signs you need to know:

  • Drains clear more slowly than usual.
  • Drains have frequent clogs
  • Multiple drains are clogged
  • Gurgling sounds are coming from drains
  • Odors come from drains

If you notice any of these signs, it is time to get professional help cleaning and clearing your drains and sewer lines.

When To Call the Drain Cleaning Pros

Some drain cleaning maintenance can be done by yourself. For basic drain cleaning maintenance, you may be able to use a baking soda and vinegar mix to help keep your drain lines clear. For a more thorough cleaning or to remove clogs, you should call a professional. 

The expert technicians at Church Plumbing & Heating use firm but gentle augers or snakes to clean drain and sewer lines. They know how to ensure your drains are clear and clean, so no bacteria, clogs, or gross smells remain without using harsh chemicals that can hurt your plumbing.

Have questions about drain cleaning services? We have answers. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

Are chemical cleaners actually bad for my plumbing?

Unfortunately, yes! Chemical drain cleaners are convenient, but the harsh chemicals that make them up are also harmful to the pipes in your home. The chemical compounds in the cleaners can cause heat to build up in your piping. This heat can damage and warp your plumbing, making it more likely for leaks to occur.

Chemical drain cleaners are also bad for the environment and septic tanks. Using a gentle mix of baking soda, vinegar, and hot water or professional drain cleaning services is best.

What is water-jetting in drain cleaning?

Water-jetting, or hydro jetting, uses high pressured water to clean and clear drains. The high pressure of the water can clear buildup and debris from your plumbing without using harsh chemicals.

It’s a safe and effective way to maintain your drain and sewer lines.

How long does a professional drain cleaning take?

Professional drain cleaning usually takes only a couple of hours. The drain cleaning project usually lasts less than three hours, from installing the tools and equipment to the final cleanup.

Of course, if you have a specific problem or clog, the length of time for the cleaning may vary. For more information on drain cleaning, view our blog on “How you can avoid an expensive drain  cleaning emergency.”

What Our Clients Are Saying

This was quite possible the best service call I’ve experienced. JD explained everything and worked with me so I could see how he worked through my radiator issue and we came to find a solution. He also listened and repaired my toilet so much better than the last person we had called out for the same issue. Church will be getting all my calls from now on. Thanks so much!

D. Dodwell

Kristi was top notch and provided A1 service. Very professional and pleasant. As always Church Plumbing was able to work around my schedule to accommodate me and complete my services.

T. Bay

I and my neighbors have used Church Plumbing & Heating for years and are totally loyal to this business because they deliver exactly as promised, efficiently and professionally, and at affordable prices. Recently, we had a seriously blocked kitchen sink, that one workman threw his hands up and said he couldn't fix it, and yet Church came out and fixed it in 30 minutes at a very affordable cost...

Q. Martin

Nick & JD were right on time, very nice guys & made quick work of relocating our kitchen gasoline (they had to do some ductwork too to get there!). I really appreciated how fast Church could respond to my appointment request & how easy communication was the entire project. Will be using again, will even try to request Nick & JD if possible. Thanks so much!

K. Peachey

Kristi was awesome! She drove an hour in a blizzard to come fix my furnace when I couldn't find anyone else to come help me so that we could have heat during this snowstorm. She was very nice and helpful as well!
