Drain Cleaning

Drain Cleaning throughout the Virginia Beach Area

Eric V is a very honest hard working young man who knows what "customer service" really means. I really appreciated his honesty and his desire to do the job right. After the initial pressure washin... More g of the sewer lines on 8/10/15, I was told by another technician (not Eric) that we would be fine after $495.00 charge. On 9/22/15 the other technician had to come back and pressure wash the pipes again because we were backing up again for another $495.00. So, now I was angry because we had only gone past the 30 day warranty by 12 days and we had to pay another $495.00. We also had to pay for a video scoping of the line and we were given a discount for that procedure (that cost $250.00) which I was told was a discounted rate from $325.00. Eric was the technician who came to do the video. He said the pipes were cast iron and looked to be in good shape and the last five feet before the city line had some roots in it that should be removed. That would require installing a two way clean-out for $450.00 and running a big snake to cut the roots. Eric did this job after much work at trying to remove a bush that was sitting over the pipe and discovering the water line ran directly above the sewer pipe. He was honest and hard working as I stated earlier. So, this job cost a total of $1,690.00 and probably would not have cost that much if Eric had been the first technician we saw. Eric did only what needed to be done and didn't try to "sell" a bigger job. I would call American Mechanical again as long as Eric was my technician. That is my honest review."

Signs You Have Clogged Drain

ThinkstockPhotos-457099639 resizeThe more obvious signs of trouble include slow drains or completely clogged drains where the water is not going down at all. In addition, a clogged drain might also cause the following:

  • Pools of water when you try to shower
  • A sink full of dirty water while doing the dishes
  • Rising water levels in your toilet after flushing
  • Foul odor
  • And more.

Many drain clogs are caused by rotting or organic material, making them not just plumbing problems, but potential health issues as well. Foul-smelling drains that are also clogged can harbor dangerous bacteria. Odors can also be caused by leaking and backed up water. If you notice an odd smell coming from one or more of your drains, contact us immediately.

Is It Time for Professional Drain Cleaning?

While many property owners are hesitant to call for professional help if they think they can unclog their drains on their own, there are several signs that indicate it’s better to leave the job to your plumber. If you experience any of the following six signs, consider having a professional examine your system:

  1. Recurring Clogs.
  2. Multiple Clogged Drains.
  3. Slow Drains.
  4. Low Water Pressure.
  5. Sewer Odors.
  6. Standing Water.
  7. Drain Inspection

Whether you’re having noticeable issues with your drains or not, we recommend that you get your drains checked at least every two or three years to head off problems and ensure the integrity of your plumbing. Routine maintenance is, after all, much less costly than an extensive repair for a problem that has gotten out of hand.

Our technicians have access to the right tools and equipment to perform long-term drain cleaning solutions. While many consumer chemical products claim to clear drains without mechanical assistance, they are often harmful on your pipes and the environment, and are short-term fixes.

Our long-term solutions include inserting a drain cable, or snake, into your pipeline. This consists of a specialized machine that drives a cable and cleaning head through the whole of the pipe, rather than just burning a hole through debris with acids or other caustic substances. A professionally-snaked drain is a much safer method of clearing your clogged drains.
