While very few people truly enjoy cleaning the bathroom, you try to keep it as clean as possible for your guests and your own health and comfort. But while you may scrub the toilet, tub, and sinks diligently, there’s still one portion you may always miss, the drains. The drain opening may be shiny and spotless, but the inside of the drains in the bathroom and the kitchen may be coated with grease, “sludge,” and a bit of debris here and there. This increases the potential for drain clogs, which can inconvenience you in some major ways.
Some people attempt drain cleaning on their own as a form of clog removal or drain maintenance by pouring drain cleaning liquids down the drain. These are generally found at most hardware shops and even many grocery stores, but beware: these are some of the most toxic chemicals available for consumers to purchase in stores. Furthermore, they can actually damage the pipes, and most don’t clear clogs completely.
Professional drain cleaning uses zero toxic chemicals, so that no damage is accrued. Instead, they use any of several tools including drain augers that reach deep into the drain pipes and latch onto clogs in order to pull them up through the drain. Or, a technician may use a different attachment to break up clogs and send them into the sewer. In some cases, technicians may have to use high-pressure hoses to blast water into the pipes and remove any stuck-on sludge.
Some experts even use video pipes to inspect deep within the pipes and make sure that clogs are completely taken care of and that no further problems may lead to clogging in the future. Drain cleaning is a service which can vastly improve the condition of your plumbing system, to the point that you’re unlikely to run into any major drain clogs for the rest of the year.
