DRAIN CLEANING

Clogged drains? We are professional drain uncloggers!

Reimer Home Services offers prompt and friendly service, along with a strong commitment to effectively addressing blocked drain issues and sluggish drainage in residences across Albany, NY. Whether you reside in the vicinity of Albany, Schenectady County, Saratoga County, or their neighboring areas, chances are high that you’ve encountered the annoyance of slow-flowing drains or drain clogs.

Bathroom vanity sinks frequently become obstructed due to the accumulation of hair, soap, and toothpaste, resulting in drain clogs. The drains of bathtubs or showers are prone to blockages caused by trapped hair, which ensnares residues from shampoo and soap. Kitchen sink drain passages can become impeded due to the buildup of food particles and grease. Even with the advanced flushing mechanisms in modern toilets, instances of toilet drain clogs can still occur, especially in households with young children who tend to be liberal with toilet paper or have a penchant for “misplacing” toys and small objects. Bathroom vanity sinks tend to get filled with hair, soap, and toothpaste, causing clogs. Tub or shower drains are known for getting clogged with hair, which traps shampoo and soap residue. The kitchen sink drain flow gets obstructed by the accumulation of food particles and grease. Toilets these days have superior flushing technology; however, it is still possible for a toilet to clog, especially if you have little ones around that are overly generous with toilet paper or prone to “misplacing” toys and other small objects! 

Our professional drain cleaning services encompass a comprehensive range, including the use of a drain snake, to ensure the efficient and effective restoration of drain pipe functionality. We specialize in addressing issues with toilet drains and sink drains, employing expert techniques to ensure the smooth flow of water and prevent future blockages. Trust Reimer for reliable and skilled plumbing solutions that cater to your specific needs.

If pipes pose a plumbing issue, our expertise covers their clearing or replacement.

Beyond the substances that find their way into drains, the nature of drain pipes within your household can contribute to the problem. In residences with a historical context like those in Scotia & Glenville, the presence of galvanized drain plumbing often leads to sluggish drainage and complete blockages. The root causes are twofold: the aging of galvanized steel drain pipes and the gradual reduction in the diameter of the inner drain aperture over recent decades.

Galvanized steel piping features fittings with sharp angles, creating significant obstacles for waste to navigate through. This intricate design can result in notable hindrances to the flow. Conversely, contemporary constructions in areas such as Clifton Park and Malta opt for PVC piping, a material choice that mitigates the gradual constriction of the pipe over time.

For your drain cleaning needs and any matters concerning drain plumbing and drain pipes, our solutions encompass a wide spectrum, ranging from remediation to replacement. Trust us to adeptly handle these challenges and ensure the uninterrupted functionality of your plumbing system.

    Common Drain Cleaning & Drain Clearing FAQs

    Why is my drain slow and gurgling?
    Can I use a chemical drain cleaner to unclog my drains?
    What tools and techniques do professionals use for drain cleaning?
    How often should I schedule drain cleaning maintenance?
    What signs indicate I need professional drain cleaning?

    Why is my drain slow and gurgling?

    Slow drains and gurgling noises are often caused by a buildup of debris, grease, or hair in your pipes. This accumulation can hinder proper water flow, leading to slow drainage and air bubbles causing gurgling sounds.

    Can I use a chemical drain cleaner to unclog my drains?

    While chemical drain cleaners may provide a temporary fix, they can also damage your pipes over time due to their corrosive nature. It’s best to opt for professional drain cleaning services, as we use safe and effective methods to clear blockages without harming your plumbing.

    What tools and techniques do professionals use for drain cleaning?

    Professional plumbers utilize a variety of tools such as drain snakes, hydro-jetting equipment, and camera inspections. Drain snakes help physically remove clogs, while hydro-jetting uses high-pressure water to break down stubborn debris and clear the pipes. Camera inspections allow plumbers to identify the exact location and cause of blockages.

    How often should I schedule drain cleaning maintenance?

    Regular drain cleaning maintenance is recommended every 1-2 years to prevent clogs and maintain optimal drainage. However, factors like usage, the number of occupants, and the age of your plumbing system can influence the frequency.

    What signs indicate I need professional drain cleaning?

    Look out for signs like slow drainage, recurring clogs, foul odors, gurgling sounds, and water backups. These indicators suggest a potential blockage or plumbing issue that requires the expertise of a professional plumber to address effectively.
