Drain Cleaning & Clog Repair in Bend
Think about it: every single drop of liquid that flows into your home has to flow out again – and all of that water can only exit one way – through the drains in your house. And when the water in your home isn’t flowing out – that’s when you need to call Mr. Rooter. Mr. Rooter’s service technicians are carefully trained in all aspects of drain care, and we’ll help you care for and maintain this crucial aspect of your plumbing system.
When water starts running slowly anywhere – that’s the warning bell; something is going wrong somewhere in the drainage system of your home or business. You’ll be tempted to try the DIY system first, after all – it’s just a slow drain, how hard can it be? But you need to be aware that even a drain cleaner you buy yourself in a store can be corrosive to certain pipes, not to mention dangerous. More importantly, that slow drain is usually the symptom of a larger problem that will get worse with time – no matter how many bottles of drain cleaner you pour down it! Only a skilled plumber with the right equipment can truly diagnose and take care of the problem completely. At Mr. Rooter our technicians receive specialized draining in the vital area of drains and drain cleaning.
In your home the main culprits of drain disasters are sinks, bathtubs, showers and toilets, followed by garbage disposals, dishwashers and even washing machines. Hair, soap, oils, toothpaste, grease, food, lint – and sometimes a stuffed toy or two down the toilet – the things that go down your drains that aren’t supposed to go down your drains would astonish you. People seem to have a hard time remembering that toilet paper and waste are the only things that a toilet is designed to handle. And if you’re a business owner, you’ll be dealing with paper towels and feminine products as well. Once a clog gets started, more and more debris will get snagged on it, narrowing your pipe’s circumference, slowing the water flow, and before you know it – you have a major blockage in some pipe that’s behind your wall, in your basement or even underground. That’s when you need one of the master plumbers at Mr. Rooter. Our plumbers have state-of the-art equipment that includes video cameras that can get to the problem and take a snapshot of it, saving you the cost of ripping out walls and flooring to figure out what’s going on. They also have the specialized instruments specifically designed to unclog whatever size or kind of drain you have – no matter how big or small the pipes are.
Finally, maintenance of your plumbing system is something most people don’t even think about – until the unthinkable happens and you’re faced with repairs that aren’t in your budget. And whether you’re a home owner or a business owner, the fact of the matter is that Central Oregon is in a flood zone, and most homes and businesses have a floor drain in their basements to keep homes and businesses from being damaged in the event of a flood. That’s why flood insurance is so necessary when you purchase a home or business in these areas. But – unless it floods – do you know if you’re basement drain is actually in working order? Not unless you schedule regular maintenance inspections with a Mr. Rooter plumber. We will track your yearly inspection dates and contact you when it’s time for your annual or bi-annual inspection. Then, we only come out and perform the inspections when it’s absolutely convenient for you, because we’re on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and we never charge extra for after-hour calls. So call us when you’ve got a problem, no matter how big or small, we can fix it and fix it right the first time, and then help you maintain it! At Mr. Rooter we do it all and we do it so it stays done!
