Why Do I Need Drain Cleaning Services?
On a daily basis, all sorts of different grime goes down your drain system: waste water, hard water, soap, food particles, oil, grease, hair, and hygiene products are just some. Over time, these products build up on the sides of your pipes. As old pipes deteriorate and corrode, the grime problem just worsens. Your pipes can become so coated in grime that your drains completely close, resulting in unsanitary drain backup problems.
It is best to have your drains cleaned before they become so clogged that you have backups. The main signs that you need drain cleaning services are:
• Multiple clogged drains
• Slow draining drains
• Foul smells coming from drains
• Overflowing toilet
• Water backing up into drains
Having your drains cleaned not only keeps your drainage system working and prevents overflows and backups, but it can also increase the lifespan of your pipes. Drain cleaning will flush out soap scum and hard water buildup – both of which can deteriorate your drains. In this way, drain cleaning can save you considerable money in the long run.
Hydro Jetting Drain Cleaning Services
Hydro jetting is usually the best method of drain cleaning. It is fast, affordable, non-invasive, and environmentally friendly. This revolutionary technique uses high pressure jets which spray a stream of water inside your pipes. The pressurized water dislodges all clogs, debris, mineral buildup, and other buildup in your pipes, leaving them completely clean.
Sometimes drain problems are not caused by buildup, but a larger clog that blocks water flow. Hydro jetting can remove many clogs, but not hard clogs such as from tree roots which have grown in sewage pipes. In these cases, we will use a drain auger (clog rooter services) to get your drains flowing again.
Drain Cleaning Services FAQs
Why shouldn’t I use drain cleaner in my drains?
Drain cleaning chemicals only work in certain limited situations, such as when organic waste is blocking the drain. They should never be used when the drain is completely blocked. Drain chemicals aren’t only bad for the environment and potentially very dangerous to use, but can actually eat away at your pipes and cause cracks and leaks. It is better to use a solution of vinegar and baking soda as a DIY method of drain cleaning.
Can you clean sewers and drain mains?
Yes! Sewer and drain mains can also be cleaned with hydro jetting. For tree roots in sewer mains, we can clear them with a drain rooter.
When should I have my drains cleaned?
If you have an old home, you should ideally have your drains inspected before you experience problems. Don’t wait until you have backups to get your drain cleaned. Call for drain cleaning services the moment you experience slow-draining drains or other problems.
How can I tell if I have a sewer drain problem?
Sewer drain clogs will usually result in backups and problems with multiple fixtures. By contrast, buildup in your drainage system will usually first have symptoms like slow-draining drains and odors.
What can I do to prevent drain clogs?
Take steps to avoid getting debris and grime down the drains. Use drain catchers in all drains and regularly empty them. For kitchen drains, scrape plates thoroughly before putting them in the sink and never pour oil down the drain. Only put biodegradable products into toilets.
