Getting a clogged or slow-running drain is a frustrating problem for any homeowner. Whether it’s a clogged toilet, sink, or tub — attempting to unclog a drain just isn’t fun.
Every year, people use plungers and store-bought chemicals to dissolve the blockage. But these methods may only make things worse. Luckily, drain cleaning is a popular plumbing service that, when done right, can save hundreds of dollars in the long run.
When you get a clogged drain professionally cleaned, you will be ensured that the methods used for cleaning will not damage the pipes. For instance, to clear up the blockage, we use a snake — that’s a coil of wire that’s lowered downpipes to break any buildup. In some cases, plumbers will open a completely clogged drain to pump out the water and extra debris.
You can also prevent a clogged drain by properly maintaining your pipe system. Using drain cleaning products even when no blockage is present can keep debris from sticking to your pipes. You can also have steel mesh covers installed over the drain hole so that solids are caught before it causes a backup. You can also clean kitchen and bathroom drain with baking soda, for easier unclogging.
With proper maintenance, your kitchen and bathroom drains can save you time and money. When you have persistent problems, that’s when you should call us at Air Solutions.
