The Risk of Clogs
Drain lines play a simple yet crucial role in keeping living spaces sanitary. Their one job of delivering waste and wastewater out and away from the premises is rarely interrupted from the outside but is commonly inhibited internally. Non-biodegradable debris and other muck can get stuck in the drain line and prevent the proper flow of waste and wastewater. Though the minor symptoms of a clog are easy to brush off, ignoring a clog can make way for bigger problems such as:
Prevention and Unclogging
The best way to deal with clogs is by preventing them from happening, but it is impossible to completely eliminate the possibility. Still, you can reduce the risk of clogs with some mindfulness and gadgets:
You can also take some extra precaution by rinsing drains regularly. We recommend rinsing drains with hot water once a week and with vinegar and baking soda once every few months. Finally, arrange a professional hydro jetting drain cleaning once every couple of years for like-new, clean drains.
What Is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting has become a popular option for drain cleaning because it offers safe and thorough results. This process begins with a video inspection of the drain line, the goal of which is to evaluate the condition of the drain as well as to locate the blockage.
Then, the blockage will be blasted with pressurized water to break it down and flush it away. This pressurized water is capable of tearing through even dried concrete, tree roots, and some metals, but our plumber will adjust the water pressure according to the toughness of your pipes. If your pipes are too fragile, then we may recommend a pipe repair or replacement.
