Drain Cleaning

Do you find yourself standing in 6 inches of dirty water every time you take a shower? Is there a fetid pool of water ever-present in the bottom of your dishwasher? This is no way to live — or operate a business. Call Desert Edge Plumbing, Ogden’s favorite drain cleaning company. 

What Causes Slow Drains?

Slow drains are common and are due to the buildup of minerals, food, hair, soap residue and more. You may have tried big-box-store drain cleaner to get rid of your sink clog, but with limited success. Most often, effective drain cleaning to remove tub, toilet or sink clogs must be done with a power snake (manual snakes are only good for burning calories and building frustration). 

Sink clogs are especially prevalent here in Utah, where our water is very hard. Without a water softener, the minerals can build up quickly inside pipes and reduce their diameter precipitously. This causes the water to drain so slowly that it backs up into sinks, tubs, shower stalls and appliances. 

Drain Cleaning Services in Ogden

When you call our drain cleaning company, we come to your home or business prepared with the tools we need to get the job done. 

With kitchen sinks, the culprit is often food or grease. We clear the debris out, leaving your drains clear and open again. With bathtubs, the clog is usually hair, combined with products such as shampoos, conditioners and soap. When your toilet is clogged, it can be from using too much paper, but chances are the clog is caused by other items that should not be flushed, such as tissues, flushable wipes, paper towels, dental floss, feminine hygiene products and your kids’ toys. 

Mineral deposits, however, cannot be removed with a snake. Sometimes hydrojetting can help with mineral deposits, but if they have been building over decades, they may have fully solidified.

Sewer Line Cleaning

Rooter service is so-called because roots often penetrate sewer pipes underground, blocking the path of sewage to the town or city sewer line. This is only one of many issues that can cause a sewer backup at your home or business. Others include a clogged or broken sewer pipe or an issue with the main line.  

Because a sewer backup is hazardous, it must be dealt with immediately. Before sewer line cameras were invented, this entailed digging up your entire sewer line with a backhoe to look for the clog. Today, our Ogden drain cleaning company does a sewer line camera inspection to identify where the clog is, saving you money, mess and aggravation.
