Drain Cleaning in Fremont, CA

When your standing ankle-deep in water during a shower, your toilets constantly overflowing, a sink stoppage has rendered your kitchen usable, and your dishwasher is coming to have all the makings of a miniature pool – it might be time for a drain cleaning.

As you can tell, clogged drains can be the source of many of your most common household problems, and are usually caused by a blockage of some sort. Blockages range from residue and sludge build-ups, to large objects and even tree roots.

When things like cooking oil, hair, food, or other items build up inside your drain lines, they eventually turn into stoppages that either completely backup or slow down your home’s draining process. At this point, most homeowners turn to over-the-counter drain cleaners advertised in their local retail stores for a solution, not knowing that they might inadvertently be making heir problem even worse.

That’s because over-the-counter drain cleaners are actually bad for your families health and for the health of your home’s pipework. Not only do drain cleaners NOT dissolve everything in your drains, but they are also corrosive to older cast iron and copper pipings, and can actually weaken these types of pipes over time. For those looking for a greener solution, keep searching because they’re also really bad for the environment.

Common Causes of Drain Clogs

There are many different ways to clog a drain:

  • Hair
  • Soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Other sanitary products
  • Dirt
  • Food waste
  • Toys
  • Small objects
  • Calcium and mineral deposits
  • Tree roots

Determining the exact cause of your drain clog helps us choose the best option for unclogging that drain. For example, standard drain cleaning equipment often isn’t strong enough to remove tree roots, and it requires extra steps to prevent regrowth. Knowing the real causes behind your clogged drains can help keep your plumbing system healthy, save money and frustration, and catch other plumbing issues before they become big problems.

Drain Snake Vs. Hydro-Jetting

Drain Snake

A hand-operated drain snakeSnaking a drain with a hand auger, plumbing snake, or drain snake has been the go-to method for unclogging tough drains for several decades. The long, steel cable capped with a coil can effectively displace clogs in older pipes and first-time clogs, though more aggressive methods may be necessary for other kinds of drain clogs.


our team uses the latest technology like hydro-jetting for drain cleaningHydro-Jetting is the industry standard in drain cleaning, and it works by blasting out the clog with a jet of pressurized water from a specialized hose fed into the drain clean out. This blast effectively flushes out even the worst of clogs – and years of residue build up along the way. It’s generally the best drain cleaner for a wide variety of jobs, though the equipment’s size can be a problem for tighter spaces and the strength can damage significantly older pipes if used incorrectly.
