When Is Drain Snaking an Ideal Solution?

When Is Drain Snaking an Ideal Solution?

At Snowbridge, we often recommend drain cabling or snaking when it comes to drain cleaning in Breckenridge, CO. Done with a flexible cable with an attached auger that breaks up debris, it's a technique we routinely use to clear away blockages and other obstructions. Today, we're going over some of the situations where snaking can be an ideal solution.

A Plunger Is Not Working

In some instances, a plunger is all that is needed to free a clogged drain. But if a plunger isn't doing the trick, don't keep trying since doing so could worsen the clog. Give our team a call instead, and we will use a professional-grade snake to remove the obstruction and restore drain flow.

Clogs Are Not Too Deep Within the Drain Line

Drain snaking tends to be most effective when clogs have not made it deep down the pipes. We usually employ this method on clogs affecting toilets, sinks, tubs, showers, and other drains where mild or moderate clogs often occur towards the upper portion of the line.

Tree Roots Need to Be Cleared Away

Other drain cleaning services like hydro jetting are sometimes more appropriate for tree roots. However, it may also be possible for a drain snake to break up tree roots that haven't spread too far within the affected pipe. We will first perform a camera inspection to get a better feel of which cleaning method to use.
