  1. How will you clean my drains?

The drain cleaning services used to clear your clogged drain will depend on the type of clog and the pipe material. The most common type of drain cleaning method is drain snaking, which involves the use of a plumbing auger. The plumbing auger is threaded down your drain pipe and rotated with the help of a small motor. On the end of the auger is a hook or claw. As the claw rotates, it breaks apart the clog. Once the clog is broken apart, water is flushed down the drain to clear the debris.
