Benefits of Our Drain Cleaning and Maintenance

Investing in scheduled drain maintenance is a good idea for several reasons, in that it allows us to:

  • Find any leaks, clogs, or cracks in your drain pipes before they become a more costly issue.
  • Spot small problems before they cause other plumbing components to break down.

  • Do install hair and food screens over your drains.
  • Do invest in regular drain cleaning from a trusted professional plumber.
  • Do run hot water down your drains once a week.
  • Do pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes, followed by hot water.

Clogged, smelly, slow-moving drains are not fun for anyone. Following these simple tips can help you avoid the headache of clogged drains in the future.

What Is Sewer Cleaning and Rooter Service?

Sewer lines take the most abuse of any plumbing fixture or piping inside a home. The sewer is where all of the drains from sinks, showers, appliances, and toilets meet. Once the piping meets at the sewer line, it dips down below ground to meet up with municipal sewer service or a septic tank. Since all of the waste in a home collects here, there is a huge probability that clogs will occur. When they occur, you will need a sewer cleaning service.

At First Choice Plumbing, our sewer service is dedicated to getting your sewers flowing again. We have a variety of tools and methods to unclog sewers. One of the time-tested methods for sewer cleaning is with rooter service. Rooter services are required when large clogs cause sewage backups inside a home. A rooter is a large machine that is designed to break up clogs, specifically clogs caused by invasive tree roots. Tree roots commonly find their way into sewer lines, where they will need to be removed. Otherwise, constant clogs will occur. Rooter service removes these tangles of tree roots and any other debris that may be clogging your sewer line so that your home’s drains can drain freely again.

Expert Floor Drain Installation

Having floor drains available can be necessary and, at the very least, convenient. Floor drains are usually found in commercial settings, where they make drainage and cleaning easier. They can be installed around the home for the same purpose. Many homeowners are opting to put drains in garages and bathrooms for easy cleaning and to protect the parts of their homes that aren’t waterproof. Floor drains can also be necessary for basements and places that are below grade to prevent the accumulation of groundwater and condensation that is common in these locations.

Whether you need floor drains installed in a residential or commercial setting, First Choice Plumbing is the best choice. Floor drain installation can be tricky since it is so vital that it be installed correctly from the start. Floor drains that are installed incorrectly won’t drain adequately and can leak and cause damage to your structure. By choosing First Choice Plumbing, you can rest assured that your floor drains are installed right the first time.
