Drain Cleaning Services for Every Part of Your Home
Tree Root Infestation Removal & Repair
Your drainage issues could be caused by a tree root infestation of your plumbing system. At an early stage, it can be corrected with a powerful tool like a hydro jet. At a later stage you might be looking at the replacement of portions of your pipes. Kay Plumbing Service will be straightforward about repairs and keep hidden fees out of your receipt.
Specialized Snake Drains & Plungers for Unclogging Drains
From specialized snake drains – also called augers – for every size of pipe to plungers that are created to have especially strong seals for unclogging tough blockages in your toilet, we can get your drain working again in no time.
Plumbing Inspection to Diagnose Issues
Garbage Disposal Maintenance & Repair
If your garbage disposal has been making strange sounds, is smelly or not working properly, it could be time to call a plumber. We can unjam or replace disposals with dull or stuck blades, motor issues, and more.
Hydro-Jetting Technology for Stubborn Clogs
If nothing is working, you may need to call in “the big gun”: a hydro-jet. This tool sends high-pressure water through your pipe to break up and clear the blockage. A hydro-jet’s flexibility and length means it can reach deep into your drain and take care of the hardest-to-reach blockages.
Sewer Line Inspection & Repair
Have you been having backups, slow drains, stinky smells from plumbing, skyrocketing water bills, or inconsistent water levels in your toilet? All of these could be signs of an issue with your sewer line, and they require immediate professional attention.

Frequently Asked Questions
When is it time to call a professional?
Issues that look small on the surface could be indicators of larger problems. Don’t hesitate to call a professional plumber if you have stinky smells coming from the drain or gurgling as liquid passes through it, are having to repeatedly unclog the same drain, have had water backing up through a pipe or draining slowly, or have leaking or broken pipes.
Why is my sink or tub draining slowly?
Most likely, you have a blockage in your drain. Blockages are usually caused by something going down the drain that shouldn’t, like hair in a shower, grease in a kitchen sink, or anything beyond human waste and toilet paper in a toilet.
How do I unclog a drain myself?
This largely depends on the type of clog you have. You might use a plunger, a drain snake, a hot water and salt or dish soap mixture, or other solutions.
Can I clean drain pipes myself? How often should I clean them?
Yes, and it’s recommended that you clean your drains about once a month with a hot water and salt or baking soda mixture. Prevention is the best way to avoid drain clogs and backups.
Can I use chemical drain cleaners to unclog my drain?
We – and just about any plumbing company you might speak with – advise strongly against using chemical drain cleaners if you can help it. The chemicals are erosive to your pipes, potentially harmful to humans, pets, and the local environment, and often do not provide an effective solution.
How can I prevent a clogged drain?
No matter how careful you are, the eventual clogged drain is inevitable. The best way to avoid drain problems is to never put anything down that’s not supposed to go into it. For example, hair in your shower or grease in your kitchen sink.
