HUB Plumbing and Mechanical NYC offers the best in HVAC and plumbing service in New York City. Our professional technicians are highly skilled in a variety of plumbing and HVAC repairs and installations, including drain cleaning.
If you have a drain that needs to be cleared you may notice frequent drain clogs or slow-flowing drains. At these signs give our NYC plumbers a call to come to your home or business clear your clog. Our drain cleaning service is the best in the area due to our plumber’s expertise and the arsenal of techniques they may use to clear your drain or sewer lines. These include:
- Snake drain cleaning: The plumber inserts a flexible tube, called a snake, down the drain and rotates it to clear the inside of the pipe. This process may not be the best option in all clogged drain instances, in which case, the plumber may choose to use another option.
- Hydro Jetting: This process forces high pressure water jets down a drain to clear out the line with water.
Occasionally, the problem with a slow or topped drain is not in the drain pipe itself, but in the fixture trap. The trap is usually a curved pipe called a p-trap. The curve in the pipe prevents sewer gases from rising into the home from the drain. This trap may stop heavy objects, like rings, from being forced all the way to the sewer. Our plumbers can rescue an item that has fallen into the trap or clear the trap of a clog, if needed.

There are many methods to cleaning clogged drains. The most popular methods are a plunger and a harsh chemical gel or liquid cleaner. If you want to go green and keep the more toxic chemicals out of your home and pipes, then there are a few things to understand.
Green drain cleaners or “enzymatic” drain cleaners feed on the organic waste in the drain through enzymes. They then digest and reproduce creating “good” bacteria that continues to spread all without the use of harsh or dangerous chemical. Undoubtedly, this is better for your pipes and the rest of your home, yard and family.
If you don’t want to purchase a green drain cleaner, there are plenty of home remedy mixtures for unclogging your drain. Try pouring boiling hot water down the drain. Heat can be a great tool to loosen clumped or crusted waste. Mixtures of baking soda, vinegar, and salt flushed with hot water after sitting for 30 minutes to an hour can also help unclog most drains without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals.
The best way to keep your drain clean is through preventative plumbing maintenance. Clean your sink strainers and stoppers. Don’t pour just anything down your sink or shower drain. Avoid pouring grease and large chunks of food down your drain or disposal. Buy screen covers for your shower drain to avoid hair buildup.
