Stubborn clogs can’t be removed by pouring conventional chemicals down the drain. These chemicals can damage the inside of the pipe and ultimately cause more harm than good. In order to keep your pipes running smoothly, here are some of the best ways to keep them clean.
Avoid Rinsing Excessive Debris Down the Drain
The sinks in the bathroom and kitchen meant to flush waste water rather than hair, large chunks of food, and grease. By ensuring that these particles don’t get rinsed down the drains as frequently, this can help prevent clogs from forming.
Dispose of Cooking Grease in the Trash
Grease can pose a major threat to the inside of your drains. Cooking grease is hot and liquidized, but after it cools, it becomes very solid and harder to clean. If it cools and solidifies, it can lead to a clog forming around it by trapping other particles and slowing down the flow of water. Rather than rinsing it down the drain, it is preferred to throw the excess grease into the trash. After cooking up a serving of bacon, it can be tempting to just dump it all down the drain. After all, you’d think the water would just carry it away.
Schedule Drain Cleaning Services
While these tips are effective as preventative measures to help ensure that clogs don’t form, professional help may be required in the event that a massive clog forms in the pipes and causes serious problems. If that happens, we have several options to keep the pipes clean and clear. A popular method that we provide is called hydro jetting. We use a hose to stream high-pressure water into the pipe and forcefully remove any clogs in your drain pipes. This process is eco-friendly, using pure water to push out blockages without harmful chemicals or needless digging. In addition, we also employ drain snake cleaning to remove smaller clogs, as well as recover rings that were accidentally dropped in the drain.
