Drain Cleaning & Drain Repair in Colorado Springs
Your property’s drains are a primary indicator of the health of your plumbing system. Whether you own a residential home, a commercial property, an industrial site – or all three – in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas, maintaining a set of clear, smoothly flowing drains is essential. Why? The answer is much more involved than you might think.
Slow or clogged drains are an annoyance but can be a sign of much more serious trouble to come. In fact, if your drain becomes blocked, bacteria can develop inside your drain and present a health concern for all involved; if your drains back up completely, the resulting dirty, standing water can be hazardous to your home or business’s occupants. Fortunately, Hardcastle Heating and Air has years of experience handling drains and clogs of all types and can address your drain issues quickly and efficiently.
Common Causes of Drain Clogs
Whether you’re dealing with a home or commercial floor drain, sink drain, shower drain, or tub drain, your drains have been slowly collecting dust and debris over time. Eventually, this debris gathers on the interior of your pipes and hardens, forming a deposit that can narrow the diameter of the pipe, slowing the flow of water. Often, slow drains become completely blocked, though the nature of the debris that eventually blocks the drain can vary depending on the type of drain.
Commercial drains are often blocked by commercial waste dependent on the type of business you operate, while home drains can become blocked by a variety of material. The most common causes of drain clogs include:
- Cooking fats, oils, and greases
- Other oils and greases
- Food scraps
- Mineral deposits
We Can Resolve Any Drain Clog
While some clogs can be solved with a plunger, others are more difficult. Never pour harsh chemicals down your drains – doing so can harm your plumbing system and cause more issues than you resolve. Instead, contact a professional to help you address your clogged or blocked drain.
If you experience a slow, clogged, or blocked drain in your Colorado Springs home or business, Hardcastle Heating and Air can help.

Keep Your Drains Working Properly
Proper care and maintenance can help you avoid slow, clogged, blocked, or backed-up drains. Prevention is often as simple as avoiding the above-mentioned sources of drain clogs:
- Never pour cooking grease or oil down your drain.
- Avoid overwhelming your garbage disposal with food scraps and never rinse them down your other drains.
- Dispose of all motor oil and other commercial grease properly.
- Utilize hair screens on tub and shower drains.
- Pour hot water down your drains on at least a monthly basis to help clear residue.
- Install a water softener system to avoid excessive mineral buildup.
