Professional Drain Cleaning Services in Ventura County

Naturally over time, drains become clogged due to a build-up of sludge and debris until they’re eventually stopped up and blocked completely. This is caused by a variety of factors such as: soaps, hair, cooking grease, undissolved food particles like rice (which expands in water), and more. Before you know it, you’ve got a stubborn, gunky clog that requires drain cleaning and clearing from your local plumbing professional.

Regular store-bought drain cleaners can damage your plumbing pipes, as they use caustic chemicals and can corrode pipes over time. The safest solution for your overall plumbing system is to seek out professional drain cleaning services, which is safe on your pipes and extremely effective and inexpensive. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Gallegos Plumbing for help–we’ve seen just about any plumbing problem under the sun.

What Causes A Clogged Drain?

More often than not, tree roots grow into sewer lines due to cracks or shifts in the original sewer main pipes. Also, kitchen drains may clog due to food or oils and grease congealing in the drains. One daily tip we recommend for preventing build-up is clearing your plate of food into the trash before rinsing it off into the kitchen sink. Additionally, when using your garbage disposal, run the water for an extra minute or so to help wash off excess food debris.

Another major culprit of clogged drains in households is hair. When you shower, hair winds up in the drain, and that can create clogs that span several feet within your pipes.

Safe Methods and Eco-Friendly Drain Cleaners

Plumbing professionals are trained, certified, and insured to use industrial-strength equipment such as motorized drain augers and hydro-jetters to unclog drains and clear debris from your main lines and pipes. Motorized drain augers, also known as drain snakes, are more powerful than the manual drain snakes that can be purchased from hardware stores, and hydro-jetters are high pressure hoses that use water to clear your drains and pipes.

How much does it cost to unclog a drain?

The overall cost of unclogging a drain mostly depends on the cause and amount of build-up, as well as the method used to clean and clear the debris. Contact your local plumbing professionals today for an inspection and same-day quote.

Comprehensive Drain Cleaning & Repair and Drain Clearing Service

At Gallegos Plumbing, our team of plumbing professionals can handle drain clogs of any size and scope anywhere in your home. We install, clean, and repair drains in the following water appliances throughout your home:

Kitchen Drains

If you’re experiencing blockages in your kitchen sink, it could be due to an excessive build-up of soaps, detergents, fats, food waste, and more. More often than not, the inner walls of the pipes connected to your kitchen drain will be blocked by an accumulation of organic material. Our plumbers are experts at removing debris, so your kitchen drain can operate clog-free.

Bathroom Sink, Shower & Drain

When it comes to blockages and clogs in your showers and tubs, the major cause is a build-up of soap and hair in the trap. If you begin to notice that water is standing in the shower stall/tub or draining more slowly in a way that you can squeeze water under your feet, then you will need to call a plumbing professional to restore your bathroom to peak performance.

Toilet Drains

Clogged toilets are one of the most common issues our plumbing professionals come across. The toilet drain can be experiencing a direct clog or can be affected by another clog from an outgoing source in your home. Our team utilizes a spinning cable to clear your toilet drains and ensure they are debris-free.

Downspout Drains

Our plumbing professionals also specialize in clearing downspout drains, which are responsible for providing a path for water to move from your house through the rain gutters. These types of drains are typically connected to the city storm sewer system via pipes and can get clogged with leaves or other outdoor debris, resulting in back-ups in your plumbing.

Floor Drains

A floor drain is a flush with the floor surface and found in basement floors, laundry rooms, driveways, patios, and even bathrooms in older homes. For efficient water drainage and for the whole-house plumbing system to be in proper working order, floor drain cleaning and maintenance are required to avoid possible catastrophe and issues with the floor drains.

Outdoor Drain Cleaning

Standing water in your backyard or pool after a rainstorm can become a major plumbing problem of clogged drains which needs to clear immediately to avoid any further damage to the house plumbing system. Our team includes drain professionals who are trained and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies to handle outdoor drain stoppage or any other outdoor plumbing issue.
