How Often Should I Clean My Drains?
Cleaning your drains can be a hassle sometimes. Using over the counter drain cleaners can often cause more problems then fix them. Let our team of expert plumbers help you. Our suggestion is even if you don't notice any specific sign that your drain needs to be cleaned, it's still best to have them cleaned at least once a year. Providing that routine maintenance will not only extend the life of your drains, but also it will allow the system to remain efficient as well as provide you with a little more peace of mind. If you haven't had your drains cleaned in the last year or so, give us a call and we'll send out our Harvey drain cleaning team to assist you!
What Causes Drains to Clog?
Drains and sewers in homes and businesses are designed to handle certain types of waste. When a foreign matter is unintentionally introduced into the plumbing, clogs become more likely to form since they were not designed to handle foreign debris.
Some of the foreign debris that commonly causes clogs can include:
- Animal Fats and Kitchen Grease: Kitchen grease should be discarded in the garbage. This is because the fats can deposit on the inner walls of drainpipes and reduce their flow. Eventually, the drain will be blinded by the build-up of grease.
- Tree Roots: A common cause of sewer back-ups is from tree roots penetrating old sewer lines. The roots enter the pipes seeking the water and catch debris, causing clogs.
- Un-flushable Materials: Toilet drains are only capable of handling human waste and toilet paper. Wipes, hygiene products, and paper towels don't flush well and easily cause serious clogs.
- Hair: Hair is the most common cause of shower and sink clogs. As hair washes down a drain, it can tangle around sink and bathtub stoppers. Installing hair catchers can significantly reduce the amount of hair that goes down a drain and prevent serious drain clogs.
When Is Drain Cleaning Necessary?
When customers realize it’s time for drain cleaning, its often already too late. Unless people know what to look out for, most people don't realize they have a clogged drain until a toilet is overflowing or the lawn is flooding with sewage.
Some of the indicators of blocked drains include:
- Noisy drains and gurgling
- Water doesn’t drain or slowly drains in sinks and showers
- Toilets flush slow
- Bad odors coming from drains
- Water leaks from sink drains and bases of toilets
These signs indicate that there is an active clog which could soon result in an emergency. In residential and commercial settings alike, drains can take a lot of abuse. To prevent an emergency caused by a clogged drain, many customers opt to have their drains cleaned before causing a bigger problem.
How Is Professional Drain Cleaning Done by Our Professionals?
At Moret Plumbing LLC, we use only the best equipment available to fix plumbing problems. Fixing drain and sewer clogs are no different. For most clogs, we use a state-of-the-art hydro jetting system to blast clogs loose and clean the inner walls of a pipe to fix the root cause of a clog. Most clogs are caused when debris clings to the sides of drainpipes. Traditional snaking of pipes may break clogs loose, but it does nothing to break the debris off this inside of the pipe walls. The inner walls are cleaned from all the debris by hydro jetting pipes, and water can flow freely. Therefore our Harvey drain cleaning system is so effective for routine drain cleaning services.
