Why is Drain Cleaning Necessary?
Drain cleaning in Atlanta is essential for maintaining the proper functioning of plumbing systems. Over time, hair, grease, soap scum, food particles, mineral deposits, and other substances accumulate in drains, leading to clogs and reduced water flow/drainage. When this occurs, users may notice slow-draining sinks, weak toilet flushes, foul odors, water backups in showers and tubs, and potential water damage to your property from backups and overflows.
Bathroom and Kitchen Drain Cleaning
Over time, kitchen drains may experience reduced flow and become clogged due to the accumulation of greases, soaps, fats, and detergents inside the pipes (learn why you should never pour grease and oil down a sink). Bathroom sink drains are also exposed to a host of drain-clogging substances. Soap scum, hair, beard trimmings, toothpaste, beauty products, and other substances often wind up going down the drain, sticking to the inside walls of the drainpipe, and gradually building up into a clog.
When you need emergency drain cleaning in Atlanta, you can count on fast, reliable service from Roto-Rooter. Our state-of-the-art Roto-Rooter sink machines skillfully cut through clogs, remove debris, and fully restore your kitchen sink drain to its original functionality.
Floor Drain Repair In Atlanta
Floor drains in basements, laundry rooms, and garages are designed to quickly drain away water. Should these drains clog, water can back up into these spaces and cause the damage they were designed to prevent. Because these drains are built into the floor, they can collect lots of debris over time. Believe it or not, many people sweep their floors and push dust and debris into floor drains instead of using a dust pan! Roto-Rooter technicians can thoroughly clean floor drains, removing clogs and obstructions to ensure that your floor drains will work as designed.
Outdoor Drain Cleaning Services
Outdoor drains include underground pipes connected to gutters, trench drains, channel drains, and sewer pipes. Roto-Rooter utilizes electromechanical Roto-Rooter machines to clean drains and clear blockages. Underground corrugated pipes require special care due to their ribbed construction and require the use of specialized hand tools.
Atlanta buildings and homes with older plumbing systems may suffer from water or sewer backups caused by damaged drains. Roto-Rooter plumbers can inspect drainage systems using waterproof video cameras on long cables to check for damage. If necessary, Roto-Rooter can repair or replace damaged drain lines as needed.
Drain Excavation in Atlanta
Roto-Rooter specializes in drain and sewer excavation. We can locate, excavate, and repair or replace drains using conventional digging techniques. We also provide trenchless, Zero-Dig pipe restoration services to repair or replace damaged pipes. This service is especially useful if the pipe is located beneath buildings, driveways, sidewalks, large landscaping beds, parking lots, trees, or other structures. Zero-Dig pipe restoration allows home and business owners to avoid the expensive collateral damage that is associated with conventional digging.
Commercial Drain Cleaning
Commercial drain clogs often require different cleaning techniques than residential drains, and commercial drains clog more frequently and are more likely to become clogged with tough-to-remove items, including mop strings, plastic straws, utensils, and other foreign objects. Commercial drain clogs in busy restaurants or institutional kitchens are often caused by foreign objects or by a buildup of food grease. If mechanical cleaning proves ineffective, Roto-Rooter provides high-pressure water jetting services to dislodge foreign objects and dissolve and flush out grease or sludge. Roto-Rooter has almost a century of experience cleaning commercial drains.
In addition to floor and sink drains, Roto-Rooter provides commercial roof drain cleaning to Atlanta businesses, using mechanical or high-pressure water jets to clean roof drain pipes and water collection drains from one end to the other.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you know if your drains need cleaning?
Any drain that drains slowly needs to be cleaned in order to restore flow. If more than one drain in the home or structure drains slowly, the problem may lie in your main sewer line that connects your home or business to the municipal sewer line. Roto-Rooter has all the tools and equipment required to thoroughly clean and unclog residential and commercial sewer pipes from end to end. Roto-Rooter’s sewer cleaning equipment is the best in the industry and is manufactured and assembled in Roto-Rooter’s own factory in West Des Moines, Iowa.
How often should drains be cleaned?
How often you clean your drain depends on both usage and what goes down the drain. Hair and grease, for instance, can cause serious clogs. Typically, older residential drains should be cleaned annually, while high-usage drains, such as those found in restaurants or institutional kitchens, may benefit from cleaning every three months. Commercial drains require more frequent cleaning, sometimes as often as every month. Roto-Rooter offers scheduled drain maintenance programs that greatly reduce the likelihood of a commercial clog that could impact your business.
Can I clean my drains or hire a professional?
Simple clogs can often be cleared using plungers or hand augers and drain snakes by homeowners. However, it's best to hire a professional drain cleaning service company for more stubborn clogs in branch drain lines or main sewers to ensure a thorough and safe cleaning. Professional-grade sewer cleaning machines can be dangerous in the hands of inexperienced operators.
