Kirkwood, Missouri Drain Cleaning
There are tons of drain cleaning hand tools available in stores for every type of drain problems. And though most homeowners would prefer to drain clean their properties, most often, they still end up calling professionals to fix a mess they created.
Here at NuFlow St. Louis, we advise our customers to use their better judgment when it comes to using DIY solutions to their sewer or pipe problems. A single wrong move can cause serious trouble and serious expenses.
We serve several areas including Kirkwood in the St. Louis metro area. Our team is experienced in handling requests from commercial, industrial, and residential property owners. Since 2012, we’ve provided trenchless sewer technology-based services, and we continue to do so because of the great results of this new and modern method.
How we work
For us to provide the best and accurate solution to a certain situation such as a clogged drain, we always start by conducting an initial inspection. Instead of just grabbing that plunger and unclogging the toilet, we first inspect the drain pipes to see if there are underlying problems related to the clogging.
After the initial inspection, if we determine that the issue is a buildup of scums and dirt and particles, we move forward to the next step, which is to clean the drain pipes with a hydro jet. A hydro jet is a cable, sometimes called rod, inserted into the sewer pipes. As its name suggests, a hydro-jet has water coming out in strong force that serves as the ‘cleaner.’ The water’s strong force will break down the buildups and wash away those particles down the sewage.
Symptoms of a serious drain problem
We advise our customers that if they experience any of these symptoms, they may have serious drain problems.
- All drains are clogged, or water seems to flow slowly. It could mean that there is an obstruction in the drain pipe where all these different drains of the house meet under.
- The smell of sewage gas coming out of the drains is another serious symptom as this is hazardous to the health of those living in the property. This cannot be resolved by simply pouring a drain cleaner bought from the store.
- Sewage backups are common among drain problems, too. It can mean that the drains have collapsed, making it unable to function as it should.
