Understanding the Causes of Blocks and Solutions in Drain Cleaning
There is a need for users in homes and buildings to have clean water and draining system that is effective so that activities in the building will run effectively. A healthy and safe environment is ensured to the owners and tenants of buildings if there is a proper drainage of waste from these buildings.
Sometimes, drains would end up blocking due to some reasons. It is during this time that the services of a plumber with the right skills to carry out the drain cleaning will be needed. An owner or a tenant will be assured of a clean environment when the plumber will successfully drain the wastes from the building.
We would resort to drain cleaning of our building when at one point or another drains are blocked. There are many occasions that would cause blocked drains. One instance would be too big foreign objects that are flushed down the toilet that cause blocking. Another situation is that hairs may be washed down the sink and have accumulated in the drainage thus causing blockage of the drain pipes. 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.
Other situations that would result to drain blockage are leaves of plants which are not properly swept off and disposed in the garbage that could make their way into the drainage pipes, and also the roots of trees that can crack the pipes in order to get the water they need, and the cracking of pipes would lead to a drain blockage.
A plumber can perform drain cleaning with the use of a hydrojetter. This gadget releases water which is under high pressure and will remove any dirt that is causing blockage in the drain. The plumber will lower the instrument into the drain and pushes it until it reaches the blocked area. The pressurized water will then break down the blockage into small particles, will also get rid of the particles on the sides of the pipes, thus allowing the water to drain drown the waste freely without obstacles.
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. With a motor, the wires would be turned making the objects causing obstruction to breakdown into smaller particles, then these particles are pushed down the drain also allowing wastes to flow freely down the drain.
Where the location of the blockage is, is an important consideration so that the plumber can perform drain cleaning efficiently.
