What Are Some Signs That Your Home Needs a Professional Drain Cleaning?
Professional drain cleaning improves internal plumbing performance all around. There are several signs to look out for when determining whether or not professional drain cleaning is necessary. One sign is recurring clogs, which can result from excessive hair becoming lodged into the drains.
Another sign is slow drainage. Slow drainage eventually leads to clogging and can indicate significant buildup. Multiple clogged drains can be a nuisance and should be addressed immediately because this indicates that there is a significant amount of damage for a property.
Sewer odors are another sign that cleaning may be needed. Water flooding is considered a very serious problem that comes from clogging and can pose a health risk due to the accumulation of standing water.

How Can You Tell If Your Gas Line Has an Issue?
Natural gas should be odorless in nature, so when there is an odor present, one should consider getting a gas line inspection.
Other signs that your gas line needs attention include:
- A hissing noise: There should never be a hissing problem when working with gas appliances.
- Aged lines: This can lead to leaking as seals and gaskets lose strength due to routine wear and tear.
- Little heat: Whenever there appears to be too little heat, an obstruction may be the culprit, which can be addressed with a professional technician.
- Visible damage: The lines can appear to be visibly twisted and dented. If the lines need to be repaired or replaced, a technician can make that determination.
for Alexandria, VA
Quick response and solved my problem.
Dorrit - Alexandria, VA
The Plumbing Dr is great! They respond quickly, each time I've used them they've resolved the problem. After diagnosing the problem they offer a range of options and are able to clearly explain the benefits of each one, but never put any pressure on me to select the most expensive. They work very cleanly so no residual mess to clean up. It's likely possible to find cheaper service, but you'd have trouble finding better.
Quick and Easy
Nel - Alexandria, VA
Had a leaky spigot. Called and got an appointment for the next day. They called ahead and had an earlier opening. Technician showed up on time, took a look and walked me through best and worst case scenarios. Luckily it was a best case. Work was done within 30 mins, and everything's good to go. Plus I have suggested work to keep the problem from reoccurring and an estimate for that.
Great service, tolerable price with good explanations.

Dr. Larry was very informative and did a great job.
Very thorough and informative
Cindy - Alexandria, VA
The "doctors" were very polite and thorough. The pricing setup is by "package" and they seemed a little high at first - jetting, video inspection - and did a very thorough job. They kept me informed every step of the way and let me watch the video in action, clearly showing the break in the line. They gave me an estimate for the major plumbing repair and it was reasonable.
Overall great experience
