Why is Drain Cleaning Necessary?
Every day, drains keep your home or business sanitary by washing away dirty water, loose hair, bits of food, and other waste products. When the drain pipes work correctly, these waste materials travel down your drains into the sewer system. However, it’s common for debris to begin accumulating inside your drain pipes, eventually forming blockages that prevent water from flowing correctly.
Here are some key reasons to consider professional Chicago drain cleaning:
Drain Cleaning Services Offered in Chicago
Bathroom and Kitchen Drain Cleaning
From sinks to showers to garbage disposals, bathroom and kitchen drains are some of the most frequently clogged in homes and businesses. From shower stalls to sewer drain cleaning in Chicago, Roto-Rooter’s professionals have seen it all, and we’ll make sure your bathroom and kitchen drains are flowing flawlessly by the time we’re done.
Bathroom Sink Drain Cleaning
Bathroom sink drains may accumulate a sticky mess of soap scum, hair, and hygiene products over time, reducing water flow and causing unpleasant odors. Roto-Rooter makes quick work of such clogs, restoring your bathroom sink drain to full functionality.
Bathtub Drain Cleaning
Bathtub drains accumulate a sticky mixture of soap scum, hair, and hygiene products, reducing water flow. Roto-Rooter offers expert bathroom drain cleaning services to clear clogs and restore proper water flow.
Floor Drain Repair in Chicago
Floor drains, which you might find anywhere from a shower to a laundry room, basement, or workshop, are also susceptible to blockages due to their sunken structure. These larger drains can suffer from some incredibly tough clogs — but with Roto-Rooter’s industry-leading array of tools, there’s nothing our technicians can’t tackle.
Outdoor Drain Cleaning Services
Outdoor drains protect your building’s yard and foundation from water damage. If you’ve noticed standing water in your yard, patio, or around the edges of your building, call Roto-Rooter ASAP to get your outdoor drains serviced. Our experts service outdoor drains of all kinds, including trench drains and culverts. And we offer specialized techniques like high-pressure water jetting that can clear larger diameter drains and restore your outdoor drains to good working order.
Maybe you’re dealing with an older drain with off-grade pipe that’s not up to the challenge of drainage today, or maybe upgrading your drains is on your list of home improvement projects. Whatever your reasons, Roto-Rooter is your go-to source for drain replacement in Chicagoland, and our decades of expertise allow us to find the perfect solution for your project.
Drain Excavation in Chicago
If a blockage in your sewer drain is especially severe, and drain cleaning is no longer effective, your sewer line or other buried pipes might need to be excavated and replaced. That might sound like a scary process — but with Roto-Rooter’s expert service, there’s no need to fear. Our plumbing professionals have decades of experience in pipe excavation and replacement, and we know how to minimize the inconvenience while protecting your property.
Commercial Drain Cleaning in Chicago
From restaurant kitchens to shop floor drains, commercial drains often require a different level of service and expertise. Fortunately, Roto-Rooter has you covered with expert Chicago commercial drain cleaning services, including water jetting and other heavy-duty industrial and commercial drain cleaning techniques. We know the unique needs of commercial customers and bring the expertise you need to solve your drain problems with minimal business downtime.
Commercial Roof Drains
In addition to floor and sink drains, Roto-Rooter provides commercial roof drain cleaning to Chicago using mechanical or high-pressure water jets to clean roof drain pipes and water collection drains from one end to the other. Commercial roof drains include gutters, scuppers, downspouts, and inner drains. A clogged commercial roof drain can damage your building and its contents, especially if your property has a flat roof. Roto-Rooter will work with you to create a drain cleaning maintenance schedule for your roof.
Residential Roof Drains
Residential gutters include gutters, scuppers, and inner drains connecting underground drainage systems. Leaves, twigs, insect nests, and plant life can clog a residential roof drain, causing water to pool on or near your roof, where it can rot wood trim or leak into attics. Roto-Rooter has the tools and safety equipment to clear the underground pipes that connect your roof drains to storm drains.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you know if your drains need cleaning?
There are several tell-tale signs that your drains need cleaning soon. Some are obvious, while others can slip by if you don’t know what to look for. Keep an eye out for these key signs that your drains need to be cleaned:
- Water is slow to drain out of your sink, shower, tub, or other fixtures
- Water doesn’t drain at all, even with drain covers fully open
- Offensive odors are coming from your sink, shower, or other drains
- Toilets flush weakly, with low water pressure
- You regularly find tiny flies or other household pests in and around your drains
- Sewage is backing up into your home
How often should drains be cleaned?
If your drains aren’t experiencing any obvious problems, a yearly drain cleaning is usually enough to keep your pipes clean and clear. Don’t put off this annual cleaning, however. Clogs can begin building up deep inside your pipes long before you notice them, and regular cleaning helps destroy these blockages before they become a problem.
Some drains need to be cleaned more often. Drains in commercial and industrial establishments may need a quarterly or monthly cleaning since they often handle a much higher volume of water and waste than residential drains. Outdoor drains and older drains of all kinds may also require more frequent cleanings to keep them tidy.
Can I clean my drains, or should I hire a professional?
It’s sometimes possible to remove a minor drain clog yourself. Check out our drain cleaning tips for expert advice on how to unclog a drain. You can also help keep your drain clear by using preventative products like Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield, an enzyme-based cleaner that helps break down grease and other things that can clog your drains.
However, serious blockages often require professional experience and equipment to clear. If you’ve tried our tips and your drain is still not flowing correctly, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Roto-Rooter.
