Say Goodbye to Clogged Drains, Smelly Septics & Standing Water in Your Home

Plumbing repairs are critical when the water in your home is blocked. Standing water and sewage odors are not only off-putting, they can be unhealthy for your family. We fix all blocked drains so you get back to your life quickly and economically.

Our plumbers will unblock your drains and get your water flowing again. For expert drain clearing in Raleigh, Fayetteville, and neighboring communities in the Triangle area, call (910) 822-2866 or schedule online now.

Some of the most common clogged drain challenges we can fix for you ASAP include:

  • Clogged baths and shower drains: The most common cause of bathroom clogs is definitely hair. Hair can build up, creating clumps that stop water from flowing freely through your drains. 
  • Clogged toilets: A toilet that won’t flush is unpleasant, unsanitary, and just a nuisance. Our team will work quickly to get your toilets working properly again.
  • Clogged sinks and dishwashers: Food waste, oil, and grease can all lead to your drains clogging. Try to avoid putting any of these items down your drain and always clear dishes of food before putting them in a dishwasher.
  • Sewer backups and sewage backups: If wipes, sanitary napkins, or other non-flushable items have been sent down your sewer, it will cause your sewer to clog and backup. It’s extremely important to treat any issues with your sewer quickly.
  • Sewage odors or bad food/septic smells inside your home: Unpleasant odors lingering around your home are a likely sign that you need drain clearing. Food waste and other debris can gather in your drains, get moldy, and then emit that smell back into your house.
  • Gurgling or bubbling toilets, showers, washing machines, and dishwashers: If you’ve noticed bubbling water around your home, you should call for professional drain cleaning! Gurgling water can indicate something isn’t working right in your drains.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, you need fast, reliable drain clearing. Our plumbers will diagnose and repair your clogged drains quickly and professionally.

Other clients need sewer line inspection and repairs

Some plumbing issues are harder to spot because they really live way underground. While these pipes may be hidden from us, they are exposed to natural elements making them more susceptible to blockages, corrosion, leaks, and other damages.

The most common problems that can affect your sewer line include:

  • Tree roots
  • Corrosion especially with outdated piping materials
  • Debris buildup, including hair, grease, and other materials
  • Soil shifts and levels changes that can cause misalignment or damage in the pipes

To fix sewer line issues, we use video camera inspection to see the exact cause of the pipe problem, including its location so we can plan for a solution right away. Once we isolate the problem, we will give you multiple options for solving the problem so you can choose one that best fits your needs and budget.

In the unfortunate event that your sewer line is beyond repair, we offer minimally invasive methods in replacing your pipes.

Drain Cleaning FAQs

Do I need a professional drain cleaning service or can I DIY it?

DIY drain cleaning typically uses corrosive chemicals and harsh tools like drain snakes. Both options can damage your drains and force blockages deeper into your pipes. Professional plumbing teams have access to a variety of methods and tools to remove blockages without harming your pipes.

How do I prevent drain clogs in the first place?

Grease and hair are the most common causes of residential drain clogs. To dispose of your oil-based grime, pour it into a resealable container before throwing it in the trash. A simple mesh screen or drain cover will keep your drains clear of hair. Reserve leftover food and coffee grinds for the compost heap instead of your drains. It’s best to remove and clean your drain stopper regularly, too, so that it will remain effective.

How often should sewer and drain pipes be cleaned?

Your drains should be cleaned at least once a year. Your sewers need a professional cleaning every 18 to 22 months. That doesn’t absolve you from regular maintenance, though. It’s good practice to clean your drains with a gentle cleanser or scalding hot water every month. Your bathroom drains are particularly prone to hair clogs, so it’s best to check them regularly to ensure there is no buildup. An inoperable drain can be expensive to repair, but a little extra thought and care will go a long way toward keeping those plumbing bills down to manageable levels.

When should I replace or repair a drain or sewer line?

Cracked drains and sewer lines are relatively easy to repair, but serious damage could require a replacement. In general, your brass and copper pipes need replacement every 40 to 70 years. Cast iron has a life span of about 75 years, but PVC can last even longer. External factors can end your sewer line’s life span prematurely, so be on the lookout for signs of breakage. Broken sewer lines cause gassy odors, mildew, and insect infestations. If you spot those red flags, seek out a professional diagnosis. With the right scoping equipment, we can find the source of the problem and decide whether an entirely new line is required.
