Drain Services in Stoneham

Keeping Your Pipes Free & Clear, Also Serving Medford, Woburn, and Medford

Drain cleaning seems like a simple task that all plumbing companies approach the same way, but nothing could be further from the truth! At Silco Plumbing & Heating, we want our customers to understand the ins and outs of drain cleaning services and maintenance, so we approach it a little differently than other companies.

We utilize video technology to go beyond standard expectations and give our customers the opportunity to see what is actually going on inside their drains. Through new technology, we send a small video camera down the length of an underground drain to locate any cracks, erosion, or root intrusions.

We offer a range of residential and commercial drain services in Medford, including Stoneham, Medford, and Malden including:

By performing a drain inspection, we will be able to locate the exact location of the problem, diagnose its cause (corrosion, collapsing, or root intrusion are all possibilities), and re-line the pipe. Our expert technicians identify the problem beforehand so we can solve it accurately.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drains

At Silco Plumbing & Heating, we understand how drains play an important part in the operations of your home or business. Our technicians take the time to address all of your questions and concerns that you have while we are working on your pipes.

How Can You Decrease Your Risk of a Clog?

There are a few methods you can use at home to prevent a clog before it begins. A clog that affects just one sink or bath can generally be treated with over-the-counter products available at local stores to help solve the problem. An enzyme treatment used once per month on all the sinks and showers in the house will significantly decrease the chances of a clog.

A mainline clog, however, is a bit more serious and requires a skilled plumber to rectify the issue. Call Silco Plumbing & Heating as soon as possible. However, if you would like to prevent a mainline clog from ever forming, a mainline enzyme treatment is also available. This product should be used seasonally to prevent large clogs in the whole system.

Why Does My Toilet Bubble When My Tub or Shower Drains?

If you notice your toilet bubbling when you're using other bathroom fixtures, odds are you have a clog in your pipes. Your toilet is the lowest drain in the bathroom, so when the pipes are filled with water that can't drain quick enough the excess air will be forced out through it, causing the bubbling. Depending on the severity of the clog, your toilet and eventually sink will start to overflow if you continue to shower or drain the tub too fast. If you notice your toilet bubbling, it's best to stop using your bathroom fixtures until a plumber can show up in order to prevent overflowing and flooding.

Why Do I Need a Regular Cleaning Program?

We recommend home and business owners start periodic cleaning programs to ensure existing problems do not grow worse. You should clean your drains and plumbing system wherever possible to ensure clogs do not occur, pipes do not burst, and worsening conditions do not force your hand. If your plumbing system is well-maintained and clean throughout the year, the chances of needing a major repair significantly drop, saving you money in the long run. When you save money, you can invest in plumbing upgrades to increase efficiency.

Our Plumbers are Always Ready to Help

While every home is certainly different and no two drain systems are completely alike, you can be sure of one thing: if you want to avoid clogging and other drainage issues, proper maintenance is crucial. There are a few things you can do at home to ensure that your drains stay unclogged. It’s always best to avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning your drain, as these could do severe damage to your plumbing.

Instead, try running hot water through the sink after each use to help with debris buildup, or use vinegar and baking soda for cleaning purposes. Should you still run into a clog even after performing this maintenance, our Medford drain cleaning specialists can quickly solve the problem.
