As the name suggests, drain cleaning concentrates on clearing and cleaning your drainage, enabling water to pass freely through your plumbing system. This is normally done using various methods, such as chemical agents and electric clogs. However, most people prefer the more traditional and clean, natural method of hydro jetting.
With this method of drain cleaning, a technician inserts a large tube into your drainage pipe or the main sewer line, removes any blockages, and then uses pressurized air to blast away the buildup. This type of hydro jetting usually takes less than ten minutes and can be scheduled for service on an as-needed basis. If you need your entire plumbing system flushed, it might take several days, but this is normally done on a regular basis, especially if you have a lot of blockages in your drains. In fact, if you are getting ready to have a root canal, then scheduling hydro jetting before you get the procedure could save you some pain, as well as prevent unnecessary damage to your feet, hips, and other vital organs.
If your home has a blocked drain, then it’s likely that your plumbers will recommend that you schedule regular drain cleaning service in order to clear out all of the accumulated gunk in your drains. Keep in mind, however, that many older homes have pipe deterioration that can result in sewer backups and backed up drains. It’s important to make sure that you always follow your plumber’s recommendation regarding the frequency of your drains’ clearings.
