Though it’s easy to assume once things disappear down the drain, they’re gone forever, that’s just not the case. Residue builds up on the pipe walls and accumulates debris, which leads to impeded drainage and eventually clogs.
At Craftsman Plumbing, we offer professional drain cleaning services to eliminate the debris that’s clogging your pipes. Our team of plumbing experts has the equipment and experience to reverse this frustrating problem quickly.
What Is Professional Drain Cleaning?
When people think of drain cleaning, images of goopy chemical cleaners, coat hangers, and buckets of hot water are usually the first things that come to mind.
While people have used these methods with varying degrees of success, that’s not what professional drain cleaning looks like. Depending on the type and extent of clog in your drains, professional cleaning is much more efficient and effective.
We can often clean out a simple clog with a motorized auger, sometimes called a “drain snake.” These tools automatically feed the cable through the drain and push the clog free.
If your drain clog is strong enough to withstand the auger, or you’re dealing with multiple clogs, hydro-jetting is the best solution.
What Is Hydro-Jetting?
In some cases, Craftsman Plumbing technicians must use hydro-jetting. This process involves shooting a powerful stream of pressurized water through your pipes to break up clogs and force them out of your drain system.
The pressurized water does more than simply dislodge and eliminate clogs. It’s powerful enough to clean away the residual residue on your pipe walls. Because of this fact, hydro-jetting is also used for pipe cleaning, even if there isn’t a clog.
Regular hydro-jetting of your pipes is part of our plumbing maintenance plan. It helps to loosen the residue and debris that will eventually lead to slow drains and clogs in the future.
How Do You Know If You Need it?
The signs that your home needs a drain cleaning company are pretty straightforward. If you notice any of the following problems around your home, it’s time to give Craftsman Plumbing a call.
Detecting a foul odor in your home but can’t pin down the source? It’s likely your drain. As residue builds up in your drains it attracts bacteria and organic matter that stick to your pipe’s walls. Over time, this odor will make its way up through your drain and into your home.
Multiple clogs throughout your home isn’t a coincidence. It’s an indication you have a problem with your main drain system. This may also point to an imminent sewer line backup, which you should address immediately. Call us, and we’ll assess the situation and come up with a solution immediately.
This is the absolute worst-case plumbing scenario. A sewage backup occurs when contaminated water makes its way back up through the plumbing into your home. It can seep through every drain in your house. Aside from smelling bad, it can actually make people in your home very ill.
If you’re experiencing a sewage backup in your home or notice any of the signs we listed, don’t hesitate to call us today. The plumbing professionals at Craftsman Plumbing are standing by, ready to help when you need us most.
Benefits of a Professional Drain Cleaning Company
While there are more than a handful of DIY ways to dislodge a clog in your drain, most of these are suitable for a quick, temporary fix to clear the pipe. However, none will actually clean it. A professional drain cleaning plumber will ensure that the job is done right the first time and cleaned thoroughly.
Minimizes the Chance of Clogs
Professional drain cleaning doesn’t just eliminate the big stuff stuck in your drain; it eliminates the residue stuck to your pipe’s walls that collects debris. Routine drain cleaning is the best way to stop clogs before they have a chance to form.
Protects Your Walls and Flooring
When clogs become a frequent occurrence, you run the risk of having your pipes weakened and damaged. Damaged pipes allow water to seep out into your flooring and walls, which will eventually lead to mold and rotting wood. In addition to the costly repairs you may incur, the accumulation of mold and bacteria can take a serious toll on your family’s health.
Keeps Your Drainage Moving Quickly
One of the telltale signs of an imminent drain clog is slow drainage. With routine drain cleaning, you are less likely to encounter this issue. Regular drain cleaning keeps your drains flowing freely. With so many other things that require attention in your home, your drains shouldn’t have to be one of them. Call us, and we’ll take care of it!
