How milling machines handle blockages in drain pipes

Clogged drains in Calgary can cause major inconvenience at homes and businesses, disrupting daily routines and posing health hazards. While traditional drain cleaning methods can be effective, they may not work in all cases. Fortunately, The Drain Doctor™ now offers an advanced solution to this problem with its powerful milling machines.

The drain cleaning expert uses the milling machine to handle blockages in drain pipes

Before we delve into the world of milling, let's explore the common culprits behind drain woes:


·       Grease Buildup: This is a common issue in commercial kitchens. Over time, grease buildup causes stubborn blockages by attracting food scraps and coating the inside of pipes.

·       Roots: Tree roots can sneak into even the smallest pipe cracks, causing significant damage and hindering water flow.

·       Debris: Various objects, from toys to feminine hygiene products, can end up in drains, causing blockages that can be difficult to clear.

·       Mineral Buildup: In hard water areas, mineral deposits can accumulate inside pipes, gradually constricting the passage and causing slow drainage.


Milling Machines: The Clog-Crushing Champions

Milling machines are powerful tools used to clear tough drain blockages. They work by rotating a cutting head through the blockage, gradually breaking it apart and pushing it through the drain.


·       Cutting-Edge Technology: These machines utilize a rotating head with specialized cutting tools. These cutters can be customized depending on the type of blockage.

·       Soft Blockage Slayers: Milling machines easily break down greasy clogs or food waste accumulations into smaller particles that can be flushed away with water.

·       Stubborn Blockage Shredders: Stubborn blockages, such as roots, are easily removed by powerful milling machines that grind through obstructions and restore proper drainage.

·       Minimal Pipe Disruption: Unlike some drain cleaning methods that can damage pipes, milling machines operate precisely, minimizing the risk of harm to your plumbing system.
