Drain Cleaning, Drain Repair, & Drain Diagnosis
If you believe you have a clogged downspout drain you can easily verify your thought by testing the drain with your garden hose, this will let you know if you need drain cleaning. If the drain is 100% clogged then it shouldn’t take long before you see water start to back up and overflow out of the top of the drain.
If your drain is partially blocked then you might see a trickle of water out of the exit of the pipe and some overflowing at the top of the drain. Because a garden hose is usually the only thing you can test with and it will only provide a limited flow of water into the drain there is another possibility. Your drain may be partially blocked and not overflow except for in the instance of a heavy rain that can put a higher volume of water into your drain system then what was possible with a standard garden hose. If you suspect this is your problem the only way to know for sure is to have a drain camera inspection completed or be lucky enough to be in the right place watching the drain the next time you get a heavy down pour. We specialize in exterior drains only, therefore we have the heavy duty equipment necessary to trench through tough terrain including roots.
Fixing a drain problem that you can’t see is a big problem for most, so knowing if you need a drain cleaning can help. Because we know exterior drainage systems very well we can often make this task look easy. Years of experience in drain cleaning and using the proper equipment goes along way when it comes to getting a drain pipe cleaned or repaired.
Here at Professional Gutter and Drain, have heard through the community that most national chain rooter companies only send a one man crew out with a cleaning machine. Often leaving you with more questions than they answered. Unlike many of these national chain rooter companies, we send a two-man crew with a fully equipped truck. When we find the problem, we are happy to dig and complete spot repairs when possible. If you are having a problem with an exterior drain give us a call so we can send the pros out to see if you need drain cleaning and get the water to where it needs to go. Upon your request we will send a crew out on a service call to spend up to 2 man hours to trouble shoot/drain cleaning with our specialized equipment to determine the problem and/or fix the problem. We do everything possible to ensure that your drain lines are running properly and efficiently. Ultimately, what this does is ensures you the best possible price, and leaves a peace in mind that we are here to take care of you. If 2 man hours is not enough time to complete the required work or check the entire system we can stay longer for an additional cost.
If the service call doesn’t fix the problem then we will use the knowledge gained throughout the service call to provide an accurate estimate for the additional work required to fix the problem and we will credit a portion of the service call fee toward the repairs if the customer elects to have the work preformed by our crew. Service calls and any other additional work is always invoiced separately so you know exactly what you are getting into each step of the way. Please give us a call if you would like to request a service call or have questions.
