Power Rodding & Plumbing Repair Services in Illinois
Drain cleaning and power rodding consists of snaking a long, flexible tube the same diameter as the pipe and with a sharp cleaning head down the drain to the clog. Once the clog is located, the electric motor of the device is activated, spinning the head quickly, demolishing the obstruction and clearing your home or commercial drainage system. Our plumbing repair specialists do not recommend using harsh drain treatments and cleaning chemicals to unclog your drain. These chemicals can be dangerous and costly if used incorrectly.

- Run hot water through the drain after using the kitchen sink, to lear out any debris
- Rinse the kitchend rain with hot water and baking soda to clear them
