Drain Cleaning Clears Clogged Drains

When a clogged drain develops, it is important to call professionals for Drain Unclogging. These services use special tools and equipment to remove drain clogs effectively. Most plumbers also offer emergency drain cleaning services. Homeowners must be aware of the signs they have a drain clog developing so they can take quick action to get rid of the clog and protect the normal function of their plumbing systems.

Common Reasons for Drain Clog Development

Any type of plumbing drain can become clogged. When a clog develops, homeowners must take immediate action to ensure the clog is handled appropriately. Individuals should never attempt a DIY approach to drain cleaning. Doing so can cause the clog to worsen and could lead to greater expense. The following are some of the common reasons a drain may become clogged in a home:

  • Tree roots are one of the most common causes of sewer drain clogs. Invasive tree roots can grow into the lines and cause damage. With Sewer Cleaning, these roots can be broken up so the lines are made clear.
  • Food is another common reason for drain clogs. Food should never be sent down the toilets or drains because it can cause major clogs. Food scraps should only be composted or put in the garbage disposal.
  • Drain clogs may also result from hair buildup. It is wise for homeowners to install drain screens over their drains to keep hairs from collecting inside the pipes. Hairs can slowly build up over time and create formidable clogs.
  • Clogs also develop from fats, oils, and grease. Even if a homeowner is careful not to flush oil and grease down their drains, buildups can occur from washing dishes that are greasy. Although it can take years to occur, full clogs will eventually happen if the drain lines are not flushed regularly.

What Can Homeowners Expect From Drain Cleaning Services?

It can be difficult to pinpoint the precise location of a drain clog without the right expertise, tools, and equipment. Professional plumbers use special cameras that can go deep into the lines so a clog can be discovered right away without tearing up the landscape unnecessarily. The camera allows the plumber to pinpoint the precise location of the clog so the correct action can be sought.

Hydro jetting is one of the most effective methods of getting rid of a drain clog. High-powered water is sent down into the drain line to flush it out. The high water power can break up grease, food, hair, and tree root clogs with ease. This method even cleans the buildup that is on the walls of the pipe so future clogs are less likely to develop.

Snaking is another option for getting rid of clogs. Snaking uses augers that are sent deep into the pipes. These devices remove stubborn clogs efficiently. With a professional snake device, many types of clogs can be removed, including those caused by hair.
