Clogged Drain Cleaning Services Near Me

If water is draining slowly, not at all or your drains have an unpleasant odor, you may have a blockage. Drain clogs are often caused by foreign objects being flushed into the pipes, such as sanitary wipes, toys and hair. Often cleaning a drain by yourself will not yield successful results, as hardware products are not as safe or effective to use as professional equipment. Scott McLeod Plumbing is happy to help with all of your Rancho Cucamonga drain cleaning needs!


Drain Cleaning FAQs

What is the best way to clear a clogged drain?

The most effective approach for clearing a clogged drain is determined by the severity of the blockage and the type of drain. For mild obstructions, a plunger or drain snake can be useful. Clogs can be broken down with natural solutions such as baking soda and vinegar. Professional plumbing services using technologies such as hydro-jetting or augers can clear tough blockages while preventing pipe damage and future problems.

How can I prevent clogged drains in my home?

Preventing clogged drains involves simple maintenance practices:

  • Use Drain Screens: Install screens to catch hair, food particles, and debris.
  • Dispose of Grease Properly: Avoid pouring grease or oils down drains.
  • Regular Cleaning: Flush drains with hot water and vinegar to prevent buildup.
  • Be Mindful of What Goes Down: Dispose of non-flushable items properly.
  • Schedule Maintenance: Periodically inspect and maintain plumbing systems.
  • Professional Inspections: Hire plumbers for regular inspections to detect and address potential issues before they escalate, ensuring smooth drainage and preventing clogs.
Is it possible to clean a clogged drain by myself?

Yes, it's possible to clean a lightly clogged drain yourself using simple at-home methods. These can include straightening a wire coat hanger to hook and remove obstructions, pouring a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, or using boiling water to loosen the clog. However, caution is advised to avoid damaging your pipes, and the use of caustic drain cleaners should be avoided due to their potential to corrode pipes.

Thorough Drain Cleaning Solutions

Clogged drains can be bad for you and your property in several ways. Clogs can become a breeding ground for bacteria to thrive and can contaminate your water, and they can also lead to leaks that damage your property, including the foundation. Therefore, it is essential to find the blockage and remove it completely.

At Scott McLeod Plumbing, we have the tools and the experts to quickly, safely and effectively unclog your drains. We use camera inspections to locate the blockage and determine what the best method is to fix it: mechanical cleaning or hydrojetting.

With mechanical cleaning, or drain snaking, we use a machine that rotates a flexible cable made of piano wire that cuts through and obliterates the blockage. Hydrojetting involves blasting high-pressure water through the clogged pipes, destroying the blockage and allowing water to flow through freely. These are the safest and most effective methods of drain clearing.

How Our Drain Cleaning Process Works

Step 1 - Identify The Blockage

Using our sophisticated camera inspection system, we visualize your drain line to see where the clog is located and what type of blockage it is. This helps us determine which drain cleaning method will be most successful.

Step 2 - Clear The Blockage

With either our mechanical cleaning or hydro jetting tools, we destroy the clog and get your drain flowing correctly again.

Step 3 - Double Check

Another peek with our camera will help us confirm we've removed the entire blockage - we won't stop working until we are confident the job is done.

Step 4 - Wrap-Up

We'll go over what we've done with you, and provide you with tips and tricks to help you avoid this type of clog in the future.

What Are The Most Common Causes Of Clogged Drains In Rancho Cucamonga?

To understand how to defeat a clogged drain, you have to know what's causing the problem. We've rounded up the usual suspects:


Grease and other fats from cooking are a big cause of clogged drains. Ever heard of a fatberg? Look it up (or, rather... don't). When grease goes down your drain it eventually congeals and solidifies into a blockage water just can't get past.

Soap & Soap Scum

When you're bathing or showering, the soap you use is doing a great job at getting you clean - but it might be causing other problems further down the line. Both soap and soap scum can clog up your pipes, particularly when they team up with other things on this list.


There's a reason your drain has those little holds to try and catch hair before it goes down. Hair can quickly stick together and create a clogging mass, so do your best to keep it away from your drains.

Things That Don't Belong

This might seem like a given, but there's one thing (other than your waste) you should flush down the toilet - toilet paper. Wipes (even those marked flushable), feminine products, paper towels - if you attempt to flush any of those down you're actively building a clog.

How Do I Know If I Have A Clogged Drain In My Rancho Cucamonga Home?

Here are some of the signs something's amiss:

  • Gurgle, Gurgle - Does your drain sound like it's trying to clear it's throat? It probably is.
  • What's That Smell? - Nasty odors coming up from your drains means you've got something decomposing in there that's not moving down the line.
  • It Won't, You Know, Drain - The obvious sign, but one people will ignore because they don't want to deal with it. If water is slowly going down your drain - or not at all - call the professionals.
