Drain Cleaning Services in Columbia, MO and
all of Mid-Missouri

Slow or clogged drains can be a sign of a more serious issue. It’s important to have great water quality. Hard water creates build up that can snag other debris (hair, grease, organic material) causing a clog. Many people believe it is okay to use a caustic liquid to clear these drains. It’s really not a good idea. Those retail drain cleaners can damage your pipes, leading to leaks and significant damage to your walls, floors and other areas of your home. The proper solution is professional drain cleaning from MasterTech Plumbing, Heating and Cooling.

Most people think of drains as those things found in the kitchen sink, bathtub/shower, bathroom sink, washing machine, etc. Those drains flow into the main sewer line. This line is often accessible via a floor drain, which you might recognize because it is a big hole covered by a lid with many holes in it. Most often this floor drain is near your water heater and/or HVAC system to allow those units to drain into it.
Your garbage disposal also ultimately flows into the main sewer line. Putting food scraps down your garbage disposal can lead to grease build-up in your pipes, which can ultimately lead to a major blockage. It’s best to scrape off and wipe out bowls into a garbage can before rinsing them in your sink. If your disposal becomes jammed or causes a blockage, it’s time for professional drain cleaning.

Never pour liquid cooking oil from a fryer or grease from a skillet down your drain. Once it solidifies, you’ll end up with a plugged sink drain that will need professional help to clear & clean it out. It could also be a significant contributor to a blocked sewer line, and trust us, you don’t want that to happen!

If your sewer line gets clogged, it can create all kinds of disgusting, and expensive, problems in your home. Contaminated water, raw sewage, and other nasty stuff can fill your bathtub, rise up out of the floor drain and cause your toilets to overflow. You’ll want professional drain cleaning services from MasterTech to get this problem fixed, and then we recommend hiring a professional restoration company to ensure it is properly cleaned up and your health is protected.

      What Causes Clogged Drains?

      The most common cause of clogged sewer lines is roots. Trees, shrubs, bushes, etc send out underground tentacles to bring in water and nutrients. Unfortunately, these roots often invade into sewer lines where they have cracked or broken from ground settling. The roots then snag solid waste, mud, rocks, hygiene products, and wipes which leads to a blocked sewer line. Root intrusion is not “normal” in a sewer line, and if you are dealing with it year after year, then it’s likely that more comprehensive repairs are needed. (i.e. relining or excavation and replacement). The first step is to have the sewer drain line professionally cleaned, then have it inspected with a camera. MasterTech offers a FREE camera inspection under these circumstances ($200 value)!

      Do please understand that in some circumstances, the solution to a blocked or clogged drain requires a more significant repair. This can include:

      • clearing the sewer line and using a specialized process to “reline” the interior of the pipe
      • excavating a portion or the whole sewer line to replace it with modern materials designed to resist cracking/breaking and root intrusions

      Fortunately, MasterTech is well-versed in drain cleaning services to get your drains flowing again and keep them in working order. We use a variety of methods to clean your drains. Our Master Technicians will provide you with a written, fixed price up front and get your approval before starting any work. Call us today to schedule a service call.

      Jon, the tech who came out, was very professional and friendly. I felt comfortable having him in my home, he worked quickly and efficiently, and he... was able to answer all my questions without making me feel like an idiot! I emailed them this morning, they responded quickly and Beth suggested their service plans, one of which I signed up for.

      Dillan was excellent. He came for my yearly inspection. He could have rushed through the process, but instead he made a recommendation and ended up... spending time in the attic installing a part that could save me more money and headaches down the road. In other words, he didn't cut corners. I appreciate that kind of top-notch service.read more
