How to Clean a Drain
While there are a variety of over-the-counter drain cleaners on the market, these are often ineffective at breaking up larger blockages and also use chemicals that might corrode your pipes. At Route 66 Plumbing, we utilize the most advanced, commercial-grade technologies to provide gentle yet effective solutions.
Our plumbers vary your service depending on the location and severity of the clog. Two of our most popular drain cleaning solutions are hydro jetting and snaking.
Hydro jetting is one of the most effective methods for cleaning drains. This method uses a high-pressure stream of water to dislodge clogs and clear the drain. The hydro jetter attaches to the end of the drain snake to penetrate deeper into your drains. The water flushes out the clog and sends it through the sewer pipe. This method is effective at removing clogs that are made of solids such as grease, food waste, and hair.
Another way our plumbers clean your drain is by using a drain snake. This is a long metal cable with a hook on the end. The plumber feeds the cable into your drain and into the sewer pipe. The cable is flexible and moves around bends in the pipe to clear blockages. The plumber can pull the cable back out to see if the clog is cleared. If the clog is not completely cleared, we might recommend a more extensive cleaning.

How often should you get your drains cleared?In most cases, homeowners only need to have their drains professionally cleared as needed. If you suspect you have a clog, call Route 66 Plumbing to have your drains cleared out thoroughly. However, if your home has a history of clogs or if your home is older, you may want to have your drains cleared on a regular basis.
Can you get rid of clogs on your own?You can attempt to get rid of clogs on your own, but it is a better idea to have an expert plumber from Route 66 Plumbing clear your drains professionally. Commercial drain cleaners that you can buy at the store can irritate skin and eyes and also potentially damage your drains and pipes. Additionally, most DIY drain cleaners can only be used in sinks or tubs and not in toilets. If you decide to attempt to get rid of any clogs yourself, it will most likely be a temporary solution. Having a licensed plumber from Route 66 Plumbing professionally clear any clogs you have will ensure the job is done right and will prevent future clogs and additional problems that could arise from trying to get the job done yourself.
How can I prevent drain clogs in the first place?Some simple ways to prevent drain clogs in the first place are purchasing and using drain covers and strainers that can catch hair, avoiding pouring fats, oils, and grease down your garbage disposal, and always having routine drain cleaning done by a professional at Route 66 Plumbing.
