Clogged/Slow Drain Repair

When you have a clogged drain, you want a company that you can trust to handle the job quickly and efficiently. B.L. James & Son provides all of your plumbing and drain care needs, from emergency services to preventative maintenance programs. We have offered top-quality service at competitive prices throughout the Arlington VA area for many years. Our reputation for reliability and integrity is unparalleled in the industry.

A clogged or slow drain can quickly render a kitchen or bathroom useless. It can cause terrible odors and damaging floods. For anyone in Arlington, VA B.L. James & Son has the tools and knowledge to quickly clean your drains so you can get back to your life. Drain cleaning is best done by a professional because caustic chemicals can damage your pipes and cause even more costly damage. We have tools such as snakes, which is a coil of wire that threads down pipes to break up blockage and clear the pipe quickly. We also have modern drain cleaning equipment like jetters, wChich deliver pressure at about 1750 psi and clear any blockage in the sewer lines which might be the underlying cause to the clog.

Of course, regular drain cleaning can prevent these annoying clogs. Common items around the home such as hair care products, chemical cleaners, food matter and even grease can cause a clog over time. This can pose a serious health risk in any home or business. Using a drain cleaning product from time to time when there is no clog present can slow down this type of buildup, as well as cleaning kitchen and bathroom drains with baking soda weekly can prevent the most common drain clogging issues.

We provide regular drain cleaning maintenance as well as 24-hour emergency service. Because we know that when your kitchen sink doesn’t drain, your home becomes an inconvenience rather than the safe haven it should be. We take our commitment to excellence seriously and will only call the job completed when we know your issue is solved.

How often should I have my heating and air conditioning system maintained?

Maintenance should be performed twice a year. Once before the extreme summer weather and once before the extreme winter weather. Regular maintenance will ensure that your unit will last as long as possible without needing repairs. And believe us it will save you money in the long run, by keeping up the efficiency and cleanliness of your unit. Additionally, some warranties require regular maintenance in order for the warranty terms to be met.

Do you provide free estimates on installations?

YES! We will give you a FREE in-home estimate for an HVAC system or Water Heater. Don’t pay hundreds of unnecessary dollars just for the inspection. Our technicians will work with you to find the best equipment for your home and family’s needs at a price that fits your budget.

What is the average life expectancy of my HVAC system?

An air conditioner can last up to 15 years. But this is ONLY with proper maintenance and servicing. A unit that is not properly cared for may only last 10 years before it starts needing frequent repairs.

Why is my water bill so high?

An unexpected increase in your water bill is a sign that you have a leak. Even if you don’t see the leak, you could have a hidden one.

Why is my electric bill so high in the winter?

Many customers will not notice when their heat pump system is not working. A high electrical bill can be caused by the supplemental heat kit operating to heat your home without heat pump heat. Ensure your system is working properly before the cold days of winter.

What are the benefits of tankless water heaters?

Although some people are perfectly fine with a traditional hot water heater, there are several benefits to using a tankless hot water heater. They never run out of water and can save you money.

Should I use chemicals to clear my drain?

When used too frequently, drain cleaning chemicals are bad for your pipes. They could cause the pipes to deteriorate. There is no replacement for a licensed plumber.
