It’s easy to forget how much you depend on your drains—that is, until something goes wrong with them. At American Vintage Home, our plumbers know everything there is to know about drainage systems and provide drain cleaning in Oak Park, Wilmette, and the surrounding areas throughout the Chicago North Shore area. We’ll get your drains cleared and working properly so you can get back to your routine as quickly as possible.
No matter the source of your drainage problem, American Vintage Home can fix it. We service all types of home drains, including:
Bathroom sink drains
Main sewer drains
High-Pressure Water Jetting, Rodding & Camera Inspections
Each of our drain cleaning services is designed to guarantee a thorough and quality job. Here are some of the steps we may take to resolve your home’s drainage issues:
High-Pressure Water Jetting
Also known as hydro-jetting, this process uses high-pressure water to clear clogged drains and sewer lines.
Much like a pressure washer, the water jets can break apart and wash away grime, buildup, tree roots and other items that may be causing your drains to clog.
It is ideal for lines that range from 2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
Up to 200 feet of pipe can be cleaned from one access.
Our high-pressure water jet is capable of removing tree roots and other obstructions from sewers.
Drain & Sewer Rodding
The power rodding system uses a flexible metal cable with a sharp cleaning head that threads into the drain system and around bends and joints. The cleaning head is sized to the diameter of the pipe being treated. An electric motor then rotates the cable, obliterating obstructions in the pipe as it goes.
Power rodding is a great way to thoroughly clean your sewer of tree roots, waste buildup or foreign objects.
We have extensive rodding equipment of various sizes to ensure we always use the right tool for the job.
Rodding is a cost-effective solution to restore flow to your sewer.
If there is evidence of other problems with your main sewer line, we will use our sewer cameras to thoroughly inspect your sewer.
These inspections allow us to examine and evaluate sewer problems that can’t be solved with high-pressure water jetting.
From there, we’ll share our findings and recommend the right solution for you.
What Are the Benefits of Professional Drain Cleaning?
Are your drains still working but not like they used to? You might want to schedule a professional drain cleaning for your home in Evanston, IL, or the surrounding area. Regular drain cleaning will:
Reduce blockages. The worst blockages don’t appear out of nowhere—they build up over time. Timely drain cleaning and maintenance will remove the smaller clogs that often become bigger ones.
Lower your long-term expenses. The worse a clog is, the more it will cost to fix. Our drain cleaning service protects your system from serious clogs and minimizes your expenses.
Keep your home cleaner and more sanitary. Clogged drains immediately present a sanitation issue. Rather than risking a flood in your home, consider the hygienic benefits of routine drain cleaning.
Limit unpleasant smells. No one wants to live with foul odors. Professional drain cleaning effectively removes any blockages to keep your sewers working properly and odor-free.
Should I Use Chemical Drain Cleaners?
Any plumber will tell you that chemical drain cleaners are a big no-no—and it’s not because we want your business. In fact, you may have to spend more money on plumbing services later on due to the damage chemical drain cleaners do to your pipes. Even worse, liquid drain cleaning products rarely clear clogged drains, and the chemicals in the product can be harmful to both humans and the environment. Instead of wasting money on chemical drain cleaners, call your local plumbing company for drain cleaning solutions that actually work.
