Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning

Why Is Drain Cleaning Important?

A silent and efficient drains are essential to the completion of many daily tasks. Bathing, toilet usage, cooking and cleaning all require the use of clean water. When you are aware that there is a problem with your drainage systems, address the problem immediately. By preventing damage beforehand, you can save time and your money. Your drainage systems can become clogged with hair, soap, and other everyday items you may have initially thought wouldn’t cause an issue. Essentially, any object other than water that enters your drainage system can be a hazard.

Hydro Jet Drain CleaningThere are a variety of reasons to why your drains become blocked. In different areas of the house or building, it is helpful to keep in mind the dangers that can pose to your drains. In bathrooms, the most common cause is soap and hair build up. In kitchens, the most common cause is grease, oil, and food debris.

At first, your drainage will gradually get slower before the damage spreads to the entire system. It is also important to keep in mind that water seeks the fastest exit when your drains become blocked. This exit will most likely be out of your sink drains and toilets, and can possibly overflow onto your floors, resulting in an expensive repair bill. You may see that the overflowing water is not clear which means that it is riddled with bacteria as the water is often mixed with raw sewage. The overflowing water can also cause damage to your walls and furniture if it accumulates.

Your clean drainage system operates on an effective pressure balance. This pressure balance can become dangerous if disturbed as your pipes can crack or even burst. In the end, you must deal with an expensive mess that your insurance policies may or may not cover. This is why proper drain maintenance is so important.

What Are The Dangers To A Blocked Drain?

A clogged drain is initially a small problem. It simply tests your patience in the beginning but your intelligence in the long run. The longer this problem persists, its potential threats become deadlier. The biggest danger lies in its damage to your health and home.

When small objects, random debris, and grease can gradually accumulate in your pipes, your clean water will become stagnant. With enough buildup, stagnant water will emit a musty odor that will permeate your house with an unhealthy and unpleasant atmosphere. Meanwhile, the water can also seep into foundations and corners of the house that can weaken its structure. The moisture that comes from the walls or floorboards can lead to discolouration, warping, or water stains. In addition, stagnant water attracts pests, mosquitoes, and other insects that carry diseases and germs. This makes the area prone to mildew, mold, and bacteria infestation.

How Is Drain Cleaning Conducted?

It is beneficial for you to be aware of what is going down your drain. Initial prevention is the best and most effective method to keep your drains clean. But mistakes can happen regardless. To get a better grasp of how drain cleaning works, it may help to get a general idea of how your drainage system works as a whole.

There are many different pipelines in your house, or building, that serve two different primary purposes. First, you have the pipes that extend from your toilets, tubs, showers, and sinks into the ground. These pipes are what makes it possible for you to get clean water when you turn on the faucet, hose pipes, washing machines, or anything you have in your home or building. Other pipelines take away the waste that comes from the toilet or elsewhere. These pipes eventually lead to your local sewer or septic tank. While it is inevitable that other debris will enter your pipes, excessive amounts can cause extensive damage if not handled immediately, properly, or even not at all.

A common and do-it-yourself method of cleaning your drains is purchasing solutions that you simply pour down your sink. However, as most chemicals are potentially harmful to your drains, we recommend using these products for proper drain cleaning maintenance. Another method is to mix vinegar and baking soda, and flushing out toxins with boiling water. However, some drain problems, unfortunately, cannot be so easily fixed and require professional services for effective cleansing.

Professional drain cleaners will first examine your drains with a camera designed to go smoothly into your drainage system to identify clogs and damaged drains. This initial examination will save plumbers a lot of time as it determines exactly where the problem is and how to address it. In some cases, tree roots can infiltrate your pipes, especially if their material is older clay and cast iron. As tree roots grow, the amount of damage done to your pipes will also increase. If tree roots are present in your drainage systems, we would use a hydro jetter to effectively eliminate them.

Basement Drain Cleaning Services

People are often more familiar and knowledgeable about common plumbing fixtures than they believe. By using these utilities on a daily basis, you develop a general idea of how they operate and general cleaning procedures. Rooms such as basements and utility rooms are often less familiar for most people. This means that it can become a struggle to determine an effective solution if leaks or flooding occurs. Here are the services Hy-Pro Plumbing & Drain Cleaning offers if you are unsure of how to fix or address your problem.

  • Leak Repair

If your floor drain is becoming an issue, give Hy-Pro Plumbing & Drain Cleaning a call for fast access to an experienced professional.

Basement Drain Cleaning Tips

Similar to typical drain cleaning habits you should develop, basements normally have a sump pump where frequent testing is recommended to prevent flooding.

Floor Drain Cleaning

Similar to your drains in your kitchens and bathrooms, floor drains are equipped with traps underneath. These traps can become clogged with dirt and debris which will result in flooding as rain and sewer water can accumulate. Don’t forget to check your floor drains in your basement as part of your monthly drain checking routine. However, if you notice that there is an issue that you cannot fix or are confused on what steps to do next, contact Hy-Pro Plumbing & Drain Cleaning for quick access to an experienced professional.

Frequently Test Your Sump Pumps

As sump pumps are another common drainage system located in basements, it is recommended that you test it frequently to ensure it is functionally appropriately and effectively. Sump pumps divert found water into nearby ponds, storm drains, or wells. If there is a problem with your sump pump, your floors can become flooded and damaged, especially after heavy rain.

To test your sump pump pour a bucket of water into the pump pit. The mechanism should turn on and begin to pump water away. If you notice an issue with your sump pump, schedule a free consultation with an experienced professional with Hy-Pro Plumbing & Drain Cleaning.

Keep Your Trap Seal Full

It is common if your basement floor drain is not getting a lot of use. If, however, there is no water in your trap seal, this may allow sewer gasses to diffuse. Therefore, it is important to keep your trap seal full of water. To do this, occasionally pour a bucket of water down the drain.

Laundry Room Drain Cleaning Services

As there are appliances, plumbing fixes, pipes, and faucets in and around your house, there is a lot that has to be monitored. Unlike appliances in the kitchen and bathroom, laundry room plumbing is often harder to navigate. When your washing machine is out of commission or your utility sink is failing to work properly, that can cause a problem in your daily productivity as more time and resources have to be used to clean your clothes. To ensure that you do not need to spend more time than necessary for fresh and clean clothing, Hy-Pro Plumbing & Drain Cleaning can help you with a variety of services.

Laundry Room Drain Cleaning Tips

The most common type of buildup you will find in your drain lines of your laundry room is lint. The biggest advice is to check your drains and hoses on a daily basis. Keep in in mind that your washing machine involves drain lines and that it is recommended to keep these clean to prevent flooding.

Use Strainers

The use of strainers on drains will prevent hair, soap, and lint from entering and clogging the drain lines.

Outdoor Drain Cleaning Services

While you can become so fixated in maintaining your drains within your house, do not forget to check the great outdoors. You may use your outdoor fixtures for watering gardens and other outdoor activities. Now, your downspout drain must send the water away with the help of your pipes.

Outdoor Drain Cleaning Tips

Cleaning your outdoor pipes can be a tedious and messy task. In case you are up for the challenge of cleaning your outdoor drainage system, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Regularly Clean Your Downspouts And Gutters

Downspout and gutter maintenance services are especially important in the fall, spring, or after heavy rain, be certain to check your gutters, downspouts, and outdoor drains of any debris and leaves that may have accumulated.

Check For Tree Roots

Tree roots can destroy your drain and sewer lines. By pouring a root destroyer chemical into them twice a year, you can eliminate the problem before it grows. If you want to reach your sewer line, pour the product into your toilet bowl and flush. While this is a valid option, we do not use chemicals to remove your roots. Instead, we implement the use of a hydro jetter to effectively destroy tree roots.

Unplug And Drain The Hose

This is recommended if you live in an area with below-freezing temperatures during the winter. By unplugging and draining the hose and attaching a winterizing cover over the fixture, you will be protecting your outdoor faucet and the rest of your drainage system.
