Some Causes of Blocks and the Solutions through Drain Cleaning
In order for users in a building or house to have a smooth and effective activities, there should be a provision of clean water and effective waste drainage. Through proper drainage of waste from the building, a healthy and safety environment and use of the owners and tenants are secured.
There are several reasons why drains could end up into a blockage. And so when this incident happens, you would require the services of a skilled plumber to carry out cleaning of the drain. With the services of a plumber, the wastes will be properly drained from the building and reassure users of a clean environment.
We would resort to drain cleaning of our building when at one point or another drains are blocked. There are several reasons why there is blocked drains. An example would be too big foreign objects that are flushed down the toilet and are too big to pass the drain. Sometimes, hair are washed down the sink, have accumulated in the drainage pipes, and would result to drainage blockage. Know that grease and fatty substances too that are washed down the sink could get stuck on the sides of the drainage pipes causing blockage.
Also, when leaves are not properly swept and disposed off in garbage will find their way easily into the drainage pipes causing a blockage, and also the roots of trees, because of their nature to get water or moisture, can crack the pipes thereby causing a blockage.
One of the ways that a plumber can conduct drain cleaning is with the use of a hydrojetter. With water that is under very high pressure, a hydrojetter would release it and thus remove all the dirt that are blocking the drains. Lowering the hydrojetter into the drain, the plumber pushes it until it reaches the area where there is a blockage. The blockage are then broken down into small particles because of the pressurized water, particles attached on the sides of the pipes are removed, thus allowing wastes to freely flow without obstruction.
Referred to as the drain auger is the drain snake, another method to solve drain blockage, and this instrument has wires that are pushed down the drain up to the location where blockage is happening. The wires at the end of the cord will then be turned by the motor of the instrument causing the obstructions to break down into small particles, then these particles are pushed down the drain and there is a free flow of waste down the drain then.
Where the location of the blockage is, is an important consideration so that the plumber can perform drain cleaning efficiently.
