3 Techniques Plumbers Use in Drain Cleaning

Drain clogs are perhaps the most common, persistent, and annoying of all plumbing problems you can encounter. Sometimes you can clear out clogs with a sink plunger, but if this doesn’t work, you need to call in the professional plumbers to handle the job. (Never use chemical drain cleaners; they are too toxic and acidic.)

There’s a way you can cut down on the number of clogs and slow drains in your home: schedule a thorough drain cleaning in Salt Lake City, UT from the expert team at At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air. A professional drain cleaning will clear out the debris and contamination in your drains and allow the water to flow freely through them. A yearly cleaning job will do wonders to cut down on the number of plumbing issues you experience.

Here Are 3 Professional Techniques Used For Drain Cleaning

  • Motorized drain snakes: Drain snakes, also called drain augers, are basic tools that you can purchase at many stores. However, these models aren’t very efficient at clearing out tough clogs to provide a thorough cleaning. For this, you need a plumber armed with a motorized drain snake that can drill down into heavy clogs and blockages and remove them or effectively break them apart.
  • Hydro-jetting: Hydro-jetters are the preferred tools of plumbers who want to provide a full cleansing to a drain. Hydro-jetters are devices that place scalding hot water under tremendous pressure and then blast it out through a nozzle on a hose that reaches down inside drainpipes. The scouring action clears away clogs but also eliminates build-up along the pipe interior. This does an effective job of wiping away grease, fat, and other food particles that can coat the inside of pipes. Hydro-jetting needs the work of trained plumbers because of the potential danger from the high pressure water.
  • Video pipe inspection equipment: Drain cleaning doesn’t have to be about guesswork. With miniaturized cameras mounted on long fiber optic cables, plumbers can receive visual feeds onto monitors to see exactly what a pipe’s interior looks like. These are invaluable tools for determining how and where to apply cleaning. Video pipe inspection equipment is also helpful for locating leaks and damage in your pipes.

You don’t have to live with persistent clogs and slow drains bogging down your daily routines. If you think you’ve experience one slow drain too many, it’s probably time for drain cleaning in Salt Lake City, UT. Call At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air today and talk to our experienced plumbers about delivering you quality drain cleaning through the best technology available.
