Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Even if you take good care of your drains by covering them and avoiding pouring any liquid fat, oil, and grease down them, sometimes clogs are inevitable. If you have a clogged drain, it is incredibly important that you do not attempt to unclog it yourself because this could lead to a large leak and more costly repairs.
Instead, call one of our expert plumbers to repair your drain. Our Greenville drain cleaning technicians will provide you with the service you need to get your plumbing back in working order. We have state-of-the-art equipment to determine what plumbing solution will be needed, including drain cameras, snakes, and rooters.
Clogged drains can be caused by:
- Tree roots
- Flushing non-flushable items
- Buildup of debris over time
- Buildup of soap scum, oils, or cooking grease
- Poor plumbing design
- Low-quality plumbing hardware

How We Handle Clogged Drains
When you call our professional plumbers for your slow-moving drains, we can help you get to the root of the problem. We recommend avoiding store-bought chemical drain cleaners, which can actually hurt your pipes and cause more problems than they help. Instead, trust a professional plumbing team to address the need.
At Waldrop, we start our drain cleaning service with a video inspection of your drains to find the root of the problem. This allows us to tackle the actual issue, rather than simply guessing at what the problem is. Then, we clean the drain or sewer line with powerful hydro jetting technology or eco-friendly Bio-Clean that safely flushes away the clog, without damaging your pipes.
Give Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air a call at (864) 641-4011 to learn how you can protect your drains with professional drain and sewer cleaning services.
Hydro Jetting for Sewer Cleaning
While Bio-Clean is an effective solution for drain problems, if you need sewer cleaning, you may be better served with hydro jetting services. Hydro jetting uses powerful streams of water to loosen clogs and get the drain flowing freely again. Hydro jetting is effective at resolving most types of sewer clogs, including roots.
Contact Waldrop to discuss hydro jetting for sewer cleaning in Greenville. Call (864) 641-4011 for more information about this service.
Bio-Clean for Safe Drain Cleaning
Call us today to learn more about Bio-Clean® — our safe and eco-friendly solution to your drain concerns. Using natural bacteria and enzymes, this product can clean a drain without harming pipes or leaving harmful chemical residue behind. Best of all, Bio-Clean works quickly, so you won’t be waiting all night to use your water again.
Professional Drain Repair
In addition to clogged drain repair, you can count on Waldrop for leaking drain repair. Over time, the material your drain is made of can begin to corrode, degrade, and eventually crack with normal use, resulting in a leak. If there is water pooling under your sink or damp areas and signs of water damage, you might have a leaking drain and are in need of leak detection services. Not only do leaking drains cause water damage, but they also result in a huge waste of water. A higher-than-normal water bill is often an indication that you have a plumbing leak somewhere.
When our plumbers arrive at your property, we will perform a video camera inspection of your drain lines. Once the source and location of the leak have been identified, we’ll get to work performing any necessary repairs or replacing the drain entirely if needed.
Drain Cleaning FAQs
WHY SHOULD YOU AVOID LIQUID DRAIN CLEANER?
Liquid drain cleaner is made of toxic chemicals that can damage your drains and your pipes. If you have a clogged drain, this product can do more harm than good. Instead, invest in professional drain cleaning that will start with a video inspection.
WHY IS A VIDEO INSPECTION IMPORTANT FOR A CLOGGED DRAIN?
A video inspection gives your plumber the chance to find the clog. By finding the clog and treating it directly, you will have more success in getting the drain flowing again. A video inspection gives the right information to fix the clog.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CLEAR A BLOCKED DRAIN?
Using the right equipment, a plumber can remove a block from your drain in just a few minutes. It does take a little longer to find the clog, but once it’s located, it can quickly get blasted away.
