Emergency Drain Cleaning Services We Offer in Northern Virginia

  • Drain Unblocking – One of the toughest pipes to clear out of your system is your main drain. Since all the other pipes feed into the drain, it can clog quickly. Unfortunately, the drain is deep in your system. So, using a home remedy or drain cleaner isn’t going to solve the problem. Using technology such as a hydro jetter, we can perform efficient, safe drain cleaning and drain clearing.
  • Sewer Line Cleaning – One of the most important components in your plumbing system is your sewer line. When it gets clogged, sewage can back up into your system and contaminate your water line. Cardinal Plumbing, Heating & Air can inspect your sewer line using an advanced drain camera. We’ll find the blockage and remove it, allowing the sewage to flow out of your plumbing system.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Drain Cleaning Services in Northern Virginia

If you plan on trying drain clearing on your own, you should be ready to work. The process’s first step is removing the filter from the sink. After you take the filter off, you should clean it well. There may be hair and soap scum stuck to the filter. To completely clean the filter, you might need to soak it in soapy water or a vinegar and water solution. Then, run hot water down your drain.

When you rely on professionals for drain cleaning, you can expect the process to take about two to three hours. During that time, the company installs all of the necessary equipment. They use a hose attached to a machine and a water tank. After putting the hose into your pipes, the expert sends high-pressure water through your pipes. The longest part of the process is the water pumping.

You should clean your drains once every two or three years. This frequency depends on the size of your household, the water you use, and how well you care for your drains. If you’re not cautious about the objects that go down your drains or have a particularly large home, you may need to call the plumber more frequently.
