Common causes of drain clogs and buildup include:
- Cooking grease
- Oils and beauty products
- Soap scum
- Coffee grounds
- Egg shells
- Food particles
- Baby wipes
- Feminine hygiene products
While it’s difficult to be aware of everything that goes through
your pipes, staying vigilant and trying to avoid washing any of the above
down the drain can go a long way toward preventing clogs.
Signs Your Drain Needs Cleaning
If you’re not on a regular maintenance schedule, you may be wondering
how to tell if your drain needs cleaning. The most obvious sign, of course,
is a stopped up drain. However, there are a number of signs to watch for
long before it reaches this point.
Call us for professional drain cleaning in Levittown if you notice:
- Slow-flowing drains
- Bubbling or gurgling noises while draining
- Foul odors coming from the drain
- Drain flies entering or emerging from drains
- Chronic or persistent clogging
Some of these issues can indicate a problem deeper within your sewer or
drain. Our specialists can perform an inspection to identify the root
of the issue and suggest the best course of action to resolve it.
Our Drain Cleaning Methods
At Zoom Drain of Bucks County, we have extensive experience cleaning drains and
sewers for homes and businesses throughout Levittown and the surrounding
areas. We have a few tried-and-true techniques we use to clean drains
and keep them clear, and we’ll recommend the best one depending
on your specific needs.
Our drain cleaning methods include:
PowerSnake – We’ve improved upon the traditional plumbing tool by outfitting
a flexible steel cable with a blade and attaching it to a machine, which
rotates the cable as it moves down through the drain to cut through blockages
and scrape away any buildup.
ZOOM Jetting® – Our proprietary take on hydrojetting uses high-pressured jets
of water to blast through clogs and essentially power-wash the inside
of your drains. This method is powerful enough to clear even stubborn
blockages like tree roots but safe enough not to damage your plumbing system.
Maintenance products – We will often recommend our aftercare products to maintain your
clean drain following our professional service. Bacteria- and enzyme-based
ZOOM DRAIN Bio™ and CitraJet® naturally eat away at organic
matter such as grease, hair, and food, while RootX® is a gentle aquatic
herbicide that discourages tree root growth inside your pipes.
Expert Sewer Repair in Levittown
Not every issue can be solved by drain cleaning. If your sewer pipes have
major blockage or damage, they may require repair or replacement. Our
Levittown sewer repair specialists are well versed in trenchless repair methods to minimize disruption to
your property while still delivering reliable, long-lasting results. These include:
ZOOM PowerPipe™ – We dig a small entry and exit hole—one on each end of the
damaged area—and feed a new pipe through to the other side, breaking
up the old pipe as the new one moves into place.
ZOOM Pipe Relining – This method creates a seamless new lining inside the existing
pipe to repair any cracks or leaks by inflating a liner covered in special
epoxy within the pipe and allowing it to cure in place.
While these methods are both minimally invasive and incredibly efficient,
sometimes traditional trenching methods are required. Rest assured our
sewer repair experts have the training and skill to perform more conventional
repairs when necessary.
