Drain Cleaning

Dealing with a clogged drain is simply one of the more awful experiences most people will ever have to go through, and cleaning the pipes is not a pleasant task. Here’s the thing: clearing a clogged pipe can be difficult, folks. In reality, the more you wait, the harder and less enjoyable it becomes. More and more debris will cling to the muck that already clogged your drain, and eventually, enough debris will catch, leading to a full-blown clog with water coming back up.

Left unchecked, a serious blockage can cause the drain to back up completely or result in very slow drainage in your sink. If you’ve already tried store-bought chemical drain cleaners and they haven’t worked, it’s vital to call in professional services to clear any blockages and prevent future problems. Solutions at this stage can include using an auger or snake and hydro jetting.

Drain Snaking

What Is The Plumbing Snake

If a clog is bad, a plumber can use an auger or snake to clear the pipe. A plumbing snake is a flexible, long piece of cable that you can push into the drain. Once it is inside of the drain, you can rotate it around in order to remove the clog. There are two different types of snakes, the naked one (with a grab handle) and one that can cut through clogs with a spiral-shaped cone of wire.

Prevention Is Always Better

Even though a drain snake is going to work on clogs, you should avoid the need for drain scoping and drain repairs with a bit of prevention. Most of the clogs that we see every day are oil and grease-based.

Here is the problem as we see it, you have your dishes in the sink, and the grease residue is moving down into the drain (heading along with your soapy water). Even though the oils and the grease may appear to be gone, they are not just vanishing like magic.

The combination of hot water and detergent ensures that these are kept liquid. However, the moment that the combination stops working, they become solid and begin to settle. This means that the grease is going to start lining your pipes. Once you have this happen, it becomes a trap for bits of food, hair, and anything else that you may (accidently) drop down the drain. Minerals of the water can also lead to a bit of buildup.

Snaking a pipeline is an inexpensive and quick remedy for a bad clog. If the snake fails to clear the bad clog, it is time to break out the big guns and opt for hydro jetting out the drain clog.
