Shreveport Drain Cleaning
Sick of Clogged Drains? Call Mark Johnson Plumbing!
Have you ever spent time and effort unclogging a drain only for the clog to return mere weeks or even just days later? The problem is that while you may have solved the clog temporarily, you didn’t address the fundamental reason for the clog in the first place: an accumulation of debris and grime on the inside walls of that particular drain line. While drain snakes or augers might dislodge blockages, they don’t clean the inside of your drain lines, and that means the issue can and will return before you know it.
At Mark Johnson Plumbing, we offer the solution to solve your drain obstructions for good: a thorough and comprehensive drain cleaning service from one of our Shreveport drain experts. A drain cleaning service goes beyond just removing your clog: it also scrubs away the refuse that has built up on the walls of your drain line.

Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
Drain cleaning is one of the most important, yet overlooked, plumbing services. Your drains and sewer lines are designed to protect your home by safely transferring wastewater away from it. However, when they become clogged or damaged, they will often fail to function properly. Having your drains cleaned at least once a year is the best way to avoid drain-related issues.
Some of the most common signs that you need drain cleaning include:
- Slow drains: When your pipes become clogged, it is much more difficult for water to pass through your drains. This will result in slowly draining sinks or showers.
- Clogged toilets: The occasional clogged toilet is nothing to worry about, but if your toilet always seems to be clogged, this is a sign that there are problems with your sewer line.
- Overflowing toilets: Just like with clogged toilets, the occasional overflowing toilet isn’t cause for concern. However, if your toilet is overflowing on a regular basis, something is wrong with your sewer line.
- Foul odors: When your pipes are functioning improperly, it is common for sewage gas to build up inside of them and release through your drains.
- Gurgling sounds: When your pipes are clogged, water struggles to pass by the blockage, which often results in the sound of water gurgling. You’ll hear these gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your sink or shower drains.
How Drain Cleaning Works
Drain cleaning goes beyond a typical clog removal service, taking care of both the clog itself and the reason for the clog in the first place. As drains age, they accumulate a wide variety of gunk and debris from general day-to-day use. This is unavoidable and eventually leads to pesky clogs that are a real nuisance to deal with. However, a drain cleaning service eliminates the clog and the debris on the walls of your line to prevent the issue from returning.
A drain cleaning service can remove all of the following:
- Soap scum
- Skin cells
- Fecal matter
- Food waste
- Fats & oils
- Mud & sticks
- Accumulated dirt
- Corroded metal
Drain cleaning is typically done with a process known as jetting, which involves using a specialized tool that sprays a high-pressure jet of water all along the walls of your drain line. The tool is fed into the impacted drain line via the closest drain cleanout, and then your plumber makes several passes through the line to blast the debris off of the line itself. The dislodged debris is collected in a holding tank, where it can be disposed of properly without causing damage further down your drain line. The entire process takes only a few hours to complete and only requires a standard hose connection and electrical plug.
Jetting is possible in a wide variety of different drains, including lines as small as under one inch to as large as four inches or more. That means this process is suitable for everything from bathroom sinks to kitchen drains to showers, tubs, and everything in between!
Shreveport Drain Cleaning Methods
Various methods are used to diagnose problems throughout the drain system by our professional drain cleaners in Shreveport. For leaks hidden deep within your walls or ceilings, cameras and listening devices can be used, and motorized augers can be used for clogging caused by tree roots or other debris. Leaks within the system are detected using electronic equipment.
