drain cleaning

As a homeowner, you know how important it is to keep the drains clean and free of debris.
However, drain cleaning is not always as easy to do as one might think. And, liquid drain cleaners have proven to be very ineffective.
Over the years, substances we pour down the drain eventually stick to the sides, and the drain becomes smaller.

Grease and oil should never be poured into a drain. They are the main culprits of drain clogs. Outside drains can also become clogged by tree roots.
As strange as this might sound, it’s not a rare occurrence. Tree roots can grow into the outside sewer pipes.
A professional plumber can best determine the cause and best solution of a drain clog…whether inside or outside.
If tree roots are causing the blockage, an electric snake unit will be needed to clear the roots and restore drainage to your home. Cleaning out the pipes with a snake may need to be performed on an annual basis, depending on what type of use your drains receive.
Inside, professional plumbers clean all types of drains including toilets, tub and shower drains, and floor drains. They have the tools and supplies needed to quickly, safely and effectively unclog the drains.
So if you have a stubborn clog that will not drain, you are probably best served to contact an experienced, local plumber

Your piping system can be very much neglected in many households. Like an appliance, pipes must be kept clean so they can function at optimum conditions. Intake pipes pose no problem because they carry only clean water. On the other hand, drain pipes and sewers can be as dirty as you can imagine.

You should always try to dispose of grease, oils and fats directly into the bin in the home or through commercial filtering units in a commercial environment, otherwise as mentioned in the post you are liable to get issues with your pipes and / or drains.
