The Methods We Use for Drain Cleaning

January 16, 2024

When cleaning or unclogging drains for your home, you may be inclined to give DIY cleaning a try. However, it’s worth noting that DIY cleaning, including chemicals, plunging or even snaking, often does more harm than good without actually addressing the problem. The safest and most efficient method is to call on drain cleaning services in Port Charlotte, FL by the professionals at Bullseye Home Services.

We offer three types of drain cleaning in Port Charlotte, FL: snaking, drain descaling and pipe hydro jetting. Learn more about the differences between these cleaning methods below:


Drain snakes, also known as plumbing augers, consist of a corkscrew or bladed cable in a metal tube. A hand crank sends the corkscrew into the clogged drain until it reaches the blockage and either breaks through the clog or grabs it and retrieves it. Motorized drain snaking in Port Charlotte, FL has enough power to break through tree roots.


Pipe or drain descaling removes built-up minerals and rust, often in cast iron drains, that can eventually accumulate debris and lead to a clogged drain in Port Charlotte, FL. Scale removal is typically done with spinning or scrubbed abrasives, chemicals or hydro jetting. The process smooths drain interiors and restores drain flow.


Hydro jetting involves blasting high-pressure water in pipe interiors with a nozzle. This method, used by a trained Bullseye Home Services plumber in Port Charlotte, FL, is an effective way to clear heavily-clogged drains, tree roots, pipe rust and scale.
