What Causes Commercial Drain Clogs?

The common culprits that form clogs in your drains are pretty similar to those that form residential clogs in your home. However, you don’t necessarily have control over what goes down your business’ drains — and you can bet they get more action in a typical day than a home with only a few people! That’s why commercial drainage can become clogged easier and more frequently than residential drains. These are some of the typical things that lead to blockages in your drains:

  • Grease or cooking oil
  • Food waste
  • Paper products — toilet paper, paper towels, tissues
  • Cigarettes
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Diapers and baby wipes

If you notice that a sink, toilet or floor drain is backed up in your business, don’t hesitate to call professional help. In the time it takes you to struggle with the clog, our team could show up and resolve the problem with effective tools. We want to make sure to limit the amount of downtime your business experiences and get those customers and employees happily playing their roles in your company again!

Snaking vs. Hydrojetting – Which One Do I Need?

Drain Snaking

  • Method: Drain snaking involves using a flexible metal cable with a rotating auger or blade attached at the end. The cable is inserted into the drain or sewer pipe, and the auger or blade is used to break up and clear away obstructions in the pipe.
  • Use Cases: Drain snaking is effective for clearing relatively minor blockages caused by materials like hair, soap scum, small objects, or tree roots that have infiltrated the pipe.
  • Limitations: It may not be as effective for completely cleaning the interior of the pipe or removing very stubborn clogs. It primarily works to create a passage for water to flow through.

Hydro Jetting

  • Method: Hydrojetting is a high-pressure cleaning method that uses a specialized machine to spray a powerful stream of water into the drain or sewer line. This high-pressure water can dislodge and remove grease, sediment, mineral deposits, and more from the interior of the pipe.
  • Use Cases: Hydrojetting is excellent for thoroughly cleaning the interior of pipes, removing accumulated debris, and even breaking up tree roots that have intruded into the sewer line. It can restore the pipe’s full flow capacity.
  • Limitations: Hydrojetting is considered a more comprehensive and longer-lasting solution compared to drain snaking, as it not only clears the immediate clog but also cleans the pipe walls, reducing the likelihood of future clogs.

Drain snaking is a practical method for clearing simple or partial blockages, while hydrojetting is a more powerful and thorough cleaning technique suitable for deep cleaning and maintenance of drain and sewer lines. 

The choice between the two methods depends on the severity and nature of the clog, as well as the desired level of maintenance. It’s essential to consult with a professional plumber to determine the most appropriate method for your specific drainage issue.

Vern's plumbing is outstanding! Their technician (Carlos) was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Removed and replaced the igniters in my Tankless water heater quickly. Great service, I can't say enough positive things about this company and its employees. I highly recommend them. Thanks again!

Everyone at Vern’s plumbing was excellent during the entire process. What started as a call about a leaking toilet lead into the replacement of an entire sewer line. Chris was truly amazing and worked diligently to help us figure out what our much bigger issue was. He walked me through each step to make sure I understood everything, and took the time to show me some of the more complicated plumbing in our home so that it will help me better understand any issues in the future. I am truly grateful for his patience. Kevin was also amazing as he worked really hard to preserve some of the more delicate plants in the flower garden that had to be dug up to replace the line, I am extremely grateful for his kindness and consideration of our home. I can’t recommend Vern’s plumbing enough!

We had a 80 gallon pressure tank blow and make a huge mess and left us with no running water to the facility. We called Verns plumbing at 9:30am, they had their technician Carlos here by 12pm. He even helped the elderly neighbors with their pool valves, just because they asked. Carlos and Matt worked til after 5 to fix the problem and inspect the system. They even had me test it all out before they left just to ensure everything was good to go. I cannot recommend this company enough. They are great!
