What is drain cleaning?
Drain cleaning is when a plumber uses a gentle approach to clear up your clogged drains of debris. Most people think they can just go buy a drain cleaner at the store. Well, you can, but it is not very advantageous to do so. Drain cleaners you buy at the store contain harmful chemicals that cause pipes to erode. Over time this can cause you to have to replace all of your water pipes and have a big mess to clean up. Plus, most chemicals simply do not work. The objects that obstruct the drain path cannot be easily taken away by chemicals. That is why it is best to consult a plumber. A plumber uses tools just for drain cleaning that will not cause any harm to your pipes. Best of all, your pipes and drains will be clean. It’s best to have a professional clean your pipes and drains. Having a plumber do it will save you money in the long run and save you from the worry of harm coming to your pipes and drains. Your whole house has water pipes running through it. It takes routine maintenance and repair to make sure they work and keep working. A simple drain clogging can turn into another drain clog, then another, then a huge mess. You do not want a simple drain clogging to turn into a disaster. So, get your drain cleaned a.s.a.p.!
Where are the drains in my house?
The most commonly problematic area for drains is the bathroom. The average person flushes the toilet 5-6 times a day. And a lot of those times it gets plugged. Toilet clogging is mostly due to foreign objects like diapers, baby wipes, and other objects being flushed down the toilet. These other objects do not disintegrate like toilet paper does, so it goes into your septic tank or in the drain and blocks it. The toilet is not the only thing that can get plugged in your bathroom. The sink and shower are common places as well. Toothpaste, hair, toiletries, grime, soap, and other objects can cause blockage. Also, jewelry is often dropped into drains. That is where a plumber comes in handy, to clear those obstructions. A plumber can also very carefully retrieve your lost jewelry. Floor drains normally located in basements, laundry rooms, patios, garages, and driveways are meant to stop and prevent flooding. But even these drains get plugged from time to time. These need to be cleaned as well.
Drains that become plugged can also cause there to be a backup of sewage. The biggest, most severe problem with drainage is when the sewer line or septic tank plugs up. When that plugs, you will have overflow in your house and even possibly outside. This overflow is sewage. This sewage can be very harmful; it contains a lot of germs, viruses, and bacteria. This problem should be taken care of immediately!!! You do not want your whole house to become contaminated and have it leaking everywhere. A plumber can stop this incident and save you and your family from suffering from health side effects.
