Top Drain Cleaning related questions

You are not required to supply your Tasker with tools for the drain cleaning job. Professional drain cleaners usually have all the equipment and materials required. If you do happen to have some tools on hand and want your Tasker to use them, you may let them know beforehand.

Simple drain cleaning jobs may take up to one hour to complete, including inspection. However, this may take longer depending on the nature and size of the blockage and the extent of the damage, if any. Be sure to ask your Tasker to provide you with an estimated completion time.

This isn’t recommended. We highly suggest that you leave the drain cleaning job to trained professionals. Any drain cleaning and plumbing work must comply with building regulations and guidelines. Plus, you’ll be saving yourself the risk of electrical shock, personal injury and other hazards.

You may spot signs of blocked drains when you notice unpleasant odors coming from your drain or when you hear a gurgling noise. You may also spot blockages on your toilets if they do not flush correctly or have an above-average water level.

What do drain cleaning services include?

Any household can have a blocked drain problem. Most people just use a plunger for a quick fix. But if that doesn’t work, then it’s best to leave the drain cleaning to professionals. Services may vary between Taskers, but generally, these are what you can expect when you book a drain cleaning service: 


Emergency drain cleaning

Professional Taskers on our platform know that any emergency drain cleaning needs to be addressed swiftly and efficiently. The faster your issue is resolved, you minimize the risk of any further issues such as flooding, pipe damage, or major repairs that cost more.  


We understand how frustrating it can be to look for an emergency service to fix drain blockages, especially if you’re in a hurry or pressed for time. It can be challenging to fit repair jobs on your busy schedule. If you need help with clogged toilets and sinks or require French drain cleaning near you, you can schedule your drain cleaning job on your terms for your convenience.


During your drain inspection and cleaning, your Tasker may find fixtures that contribute to the blockages or just need replacing in general. These fixtures like shower drains or the kitchen sink may need repair or replacing. If you’ve been putting off having a new sink installed, maybe now is the time to consider getting a new one. 


Sewer drain cleaning

It’s often hard to know when your sewer lines need draining since these are located underneath your property and rarely seen. If you have been experiencing frequent recurring blockages or see a backflow of waste or sewage on your sinks or toilets, it might not just be any regular drain cleaning job. These are tell-tale signs of your sewer drain being clogged up. It could be because of hardened grease, an overgrown tree root, or even a sewer line belly. 


Find a sewer and drain cleaning company near you to look at your sewer and inspect your pipes. They should be able to make an assessment and resolve your drain issues to put an end to your recurring blockages.


It’s important to note that there may be some backflow from sinks and drains in your home during the cleaning process. Besides looking for sewer drain cleaning near you, consider hiring someone to help you clean your kitchen sink, clean your shower and all other places where your pipes are connected. 


Hydrojet drain cleaning

Over time, our drains, pipes and sewers get packed up with dirt, muck, grease and all types of debris. Sometimes unclogging just won’t do the trick. To ensure you won’t have any blockages for quite some time, clean your pipes by booking a hydrojet drain cleaning near you.


This method of drain cleaning uses a hose and cleaning head that can unleash pressurized water between 7,000 PSI to 60,000 PSI. It’s power hosing the insides of your pipes, drains, and sewers. This solution flushes out all the dirt and debris and removes all sorts of harmful bacteria in the process. Not to mention that this method also keeps your pipes fresh, clean and improves their overall lifespan, practically saving you money in the long run.

Tufnell Park, Greater London

There is a foul smell coming from my bathroom sink drain, but it's not blocked. We tried using several products to clean it (one-shot, drain cleaner), but it still smells. We cleaned the U shape pipe under the sink, and it's all clean. No issues there. There must be some blockage somewhere else along the pipe...it probably needs flushing with some high-pressure water? I have no idea. I am not an expert. In trying to clean the pipes, we must have also moved the waste, and now it's leaking (just a few drops), so that needs fixing too. Ideally, we would like to replace it. We are looking for someone to come tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 22 November 2022
