Why Clean Sewer and Stormwater Drains?

Chances are, with your fast-paced lives, cleaning your stormwater and house sewer drains isn’t at the forefront of your mind. It’s one of those jobs you’ll get to one day, and if you’re not experiencing issues, why clean it? The answer is simple: it’s less hassle to clean them on a routine basis than to wait until something catastrophic goes wrong. Blocked drains or a burst pipe are no fun and not worth the stress and expense when an affordable solution and fantastic service are so readily available and affordable.

High-pressure Water Jetter for Cleaning Pipes

High pressure water jet clearing is one way to keep your pipes running clear. It has a flexible hose with a nozzle that cleans the interior walls of your pipes. If we find a build-up of oil, hair, or other debris, the pressure of the water will clear that blocked drain. With technology like an underground CCTV camera, we can see what we’re up against before blasting them clean.

Reasons To Clean Your Drains Regularly

There are many good reasons to have a professional team regularly clean your drains:

  • Removes unpleasant odours – When we professionally clean your pipes, we remove debris that gets trapped and starts to smell, including food particles and other items.
  • Saves money – It’s worth mentioning that catching issues before they lead to major damage protects you from a significant cash outlay to fix a more severe problem.
  • Reduces the likelihood of blockage – A clear drain is a happy one. It also means it’s less likely to experience a blockage.
  • Improves lifespan – You’re minimising the damage to your drainage systems by cleaning them regularly.

The four clear signs that your drains are overdue for cleaning include the following:

  • Unusual noises – If you’re hearing gurgling noises, it’s usually a sign there’s insufficient airflow through your pipes. Now is not the time to wait. Booking in for professional cleaning will help clear up the problem before it becomes an emergency.
  • Slow drainage – If your kitchen or bathroom sink is taking its time draining water, it’s a sign that something is stopping airflow and, in turn, water from getting through your pipes easily. 
  • Overflowing toilet – If your toilet is overflowing and dripping onto your tile floor, it’s unsanitary and can cause further issues throughout the house, such as water damage to walls and floors. 
  • Strange smells – If there’s an unpleasant odour that you cannot locate, it could be a sign you require the type of deep drain cleaning that only plumbers can perform. Most likely, the smell is from food waste breeding bacteria and causing blocked drains.

What are the benefits of using a professional plumber for drain cleaning?

Using a plunger or bottled drain cleaner doesn’t get as deep into your drainage system as our team can. With jet blasting equipment, you can expect to catch problems early and clean the area without using harsh chemicals. Investing in plumbing services is the safest way to manage your drains because over-the-counter options can destroy your pipes and cause corrosion.

What’s the best way to avoid clogged drains, especially after a professional clean?

The best way to avoid a future plumbing disaster is to follow these tips:


  • Pour leftover fat and oil into a jar and not into the sink.
  • Don’t put food down the sink, especially grounds of coffee, egg shells, meat, bones, and grains. Scrape leftovers into your garbage bin.
  • Remove any hair around the sink to avoid a build-up.
  • Don’t flush foreign objects such as sanitary items, toys, or wet wipes down the toilet.
  • Regularly check tree roots in the yard to ensure they are not infiltrating your sewer plumbing.
  • Choose Canberra Plumbing to clean your drains at least once a year.
Are emergency call-outs needed for drain cleaning?

Cleaning your pipes is not an emergency unless they are clogged and causing other problems. If you’re uncertain, we recommend contacting our team and sharing your concerns. We will deliver great service promptly.

Are same-day appointments available for all plumbing services?

Canberra Plumbing and Drains, as well as our sister company, Woden Valley Plumbing and Gasfitting, pride ourselves on providing our clients with fast service. Alternatively, we will make an appointment on an alternative day if the issue isn’t an emergency. We always suggest being clear about what you need so that we can help you as soon as possible.
