How Does Snaking a Drain Work?

Snaking a drain involves twisting and coiling a specialized tool into drains to pull out or break up obstructions. The drain snake will be inserted directly into the drain in a slow, rotating motion to grab and pull out clogs in kitchen and bathroom drains that can be caused by a buildup of hair, food waste, toilet paper, mineral buildup, and more. Professional plumbers can effectively snake a drain to unclog them and dislodge any buildup while avoiding damage and scratches. 

When Should You Call a Plumber to Snake Your Drain?

If multiple drains in your home are backing up or an unpleasant scent is coming from them, you should call a plumber to snake the drain and perform an inspection to see if the cause of the problem is due to deeper issues. If you are unsure how to snake your drain you may want to call a plumber as soon as you experience a clog because if it is done improperly it could jam the obstruction tighter into the drain and cause a more serious problem. Professional plumbers have the best drain cleaning and diagnostic equipment available.
