Exploring the Difference Between Drain Cleaning and Sewer Cleaning

Our certified team at C. Lee Services will waste no time getting your drain or sewer lines flowing again. When it comes to expert sewer and drain cleaning in Akron, OH, you can always count on us. But while we, as professionals, may understand the difference between the two, many homeowners may not. Read on as we break down what makes these services unique.

Drain Cleaning

Drain cleaning is the process of removing clogs from individual drains in your home. This includes sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, and any other fixtures that have a drain. When debris such as hair, soap scum, grease, or foreign objects like small toys get lodged in these essential lines, it can cause slow draining or even complete blockage. Drain cleaning services can involve using drain snakes, augers, and hydro jetting equipment to break up the obstruction and restore proper flow.

As simple a task as it may seem, drain cleaning is best left to the professionals. Attempting to clear a clogged drain can lead to further damage to your pipes if not done correctly. Professional plumbers have the right tools and expertise to safely complete the job without resorting to harmful chemicals or causing any harm.

Sewer Cleaning

Sewer cleaning is a more extensive process that involves clearing out your home’s main sewer line. This line connects all of the drains in your home and carries wastewater to the main sewer system. Unlike individual drains, a blockage in the main sewer line can affect multiple fixtures and cause widespread issues throughout your home.

Your sewer and drain cleaning company will carefully inspect your main sewer line before cleaning it. They may use specialized cameras to identify the source of the problem, such as tree roots or buildup of debris. Once the cause is identified, they will use hydro jetting or other methods to keep your sewer line clean and prevent future clogs.

Whichever of these services you may need, it’s reassuring to know that C. Lee Services has the expertise and experience to handle any clog or blockage in your drain or sewer lines. From quick drain snaking to thorough sewer jetting and everything in between, we’ve got you covered. Contact our team today to request a service visit.
