Looking for Drain Cleaning in Edmonton? Call Pro-Essential!

Are you wondering if you need to call in a professional drain cleaning service? If you hear noises coming from your drains, start smelling rotten food, have water backing up in your sink(s), a slow draining sink and tub, or simply wish to take good care of your property, you need a professional drain cleaning company.


Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Services

Have you noticed any of the following signs that you need a drain cleaning service?

  • Do you hear gurgling coming from your drain piping?
  • Do you have a rotten food smell coming from your kitchen sink drain?
  • Is the water backing up out of your kitchen or bathroom sink drain?
  • Is your shower draining slowly or is water pooling around its drain?
  • Does running water in the bathroom sink cause the toilet water to bubble?
  • When was the last time you did any drainage maintenance cleaning?

Causes of Clogged Drains

Over time various things can cause a clogged drain:

  • Clogged Kitchen Sink Drain: Over time, the walls of your kitchen sink drainage piping collect deposits of detergents, soap, grease, fat and food scraps that end up going down the drain no matter how careful you are.
  • Clogged Bathroom Sink Drain: Like kitchen sinks, no matter how careful you are to not let the wrong things go down the drain, the walls of your bathroom sink piping collect deposits of soap, hair, toothpaste and other things that fall into the sink.
  • Clogged Toilet: Put your hand up if you have been guilty of using too much toilet paper and clogging up the toilet. Maybe your child or pet dropped something in the toilet bowl and it got flushed. Things can get trapped within the intricate drainage system of your toilet, causing a backup when the toilet is flushed. Plunging might not solve the problem.
  • Slow Draining Tub and Shower Drains: Like your sinks, the walls of your tub and shower drain piping collect deposits of soap and hair as it washes down the bath and shower drain.
  • Floor Drains: Patios and driveways, laundry rooms, basements and garages should all have floor drains. These are there to drain the water way during a rain or flood. Over time though, your floor drain piping can become clogged with tree roots or debris from construction, or become broken. When this happens, the water that is supposed to be drained away to the city connection backs up at the drain hole.
  • Perimeter Drain System Flooding: Depending on how old your building or home is, your gutter downspouts could be sending the leaves and needles that have washed into the gutters from melting snow or rain right into your perimeter drainage system, causing a blockage. Roots can also be a cause of perimeter drainage blockages. The rock from winter roadways can build-up as well, causing blockages and proper drainage.


Benefits of Using a Drain Cleaning Service

When the drains in your home or building are not working properly it can be frustrating. More often than not, you cannot really tell where the initial problem lies because in many cases there are many small problems adding up to one big problem.

  • Using the latest technology for drain cleaning, your drainage system will be cleaned with the safest and most environmentally-friendly methods and products.
  • Save on the cost of personally owning the advanced drain cleaning tools our professionals use.
  • Using the monitor attached to our camera and line locating device, we can see the direction of flow, as well as bends in the piping and how deep the line is underground or within a wall. This avoids unnecessary damage when locating a problem.
  • Clear clogged drains without damaging your piping with harsh chemicals.
  • Eliminating the annoyance of slow drains saves you time now and lets you avoid the bigger problem of a full blown drainage clog later.
  • Lower the risk of future plumbing emergencies by knowing potential problems now, before they become an emergency.
  • Eliminate the bad odors in your home caused by residue building in your pipes.

Causes of Damage to Perimeter Drain Systems

After we have inspected your perimeter drainage system we will be able to tell you the cause of the damage to your system. We can detect if:

  • There is some kind of blockage or buildup of sediment in the perimeter drain system
  • The line draining your storm water off the property (“sump outlet line” in most cases) is not getting to the city storm system due to damage and/or blockage. (usually tree roots)
  • Your sump pump(s) do not have enough capacity for the amount of water it/they need to pump out of the system or if it/they are broken


Once the inspection is complete you will be given an estimate detailing what your options are to repair the drain system. We have all the equipment needed, including power snake and hydro jetting equipment. If lines are broken or collapsed we can recommend qualified companies to repair it.


Before starting the perimeter drain flush it would be ideal if there are building plans available or knowledge of the storm sewer system in order to reduce the troubleshooting time of the building’s perimeter drainage system. If building plans are not available we are still able to address the problems. Pro-Essential Sump & Trap Service Inc. will use power snaking or hydro jetting to resolve issues, and if necessary camera lines to identify and locate drainage issues.


Perimeter Drain System Maintenance

On completion of your perimeter drain repair or replacement we will advise you on the appropriate maintenance schedule for your property:

  • The number of times per year we recommend you have the drains cleaned
  • What future perimeter drain system improvements you should plan for in the future
  • Yearly or bi-yearly inspections
