The Benefits of Regular Drain Service
In most homes and business, the drains and their health elicit barely a thought. Their function, however, the continual removal of excess water and waste, is indispensable. Most of the time, drains operate perfectly well, even with a little constriction from areas narrowed through mineral or waste accumulation. The attitude of insouciance in regards to drains can change rapidly, however, with the appearance of a full-blown clog or obstruction. More than an inconvenience, clogs can quickly evolve into emergency situations, especially those located in the main sewer line. To avoid this problem, along with the repair damage it might entail, schedule drain cleaning as another requirement of regular maintenance. If you do, you will experience a host of benefits.
Fewer Clogs: Clogs cover a broad spectrum of severity, from a minor issue with your kitchen sink, to the major problems created through blocked sewer lines. Blockages can develop from many sources, from buildups of soap scum, to food waste or foreign objects like baby wipes, to the intrusion of tree roots. Preemptive drain cleaning services from our team can not only flush these materials before they create a total clog, but also identify problematic areas in your piping predisposed to clogs.
Less Sluggish Drains: Many people simply deal with sluggish drains. They allow water to stand in their sink or tub before it slowly drains away, and consider the expense or effort of drain cleaning not worth the trouble. This represents a bad practice, however, as it can encourage a host of problems. Standing water, for example, will encourage the growth of mold or mildew, and create an unpleasant odor. Also, any sluggish drain will eventually succumb to a full blown blockage, a situation that can result in the need for costly repairs.
Reduces Odors and a Cleaner Environment: Clogged and dirty drain lines, whether your sewer or the drains located inside your home, often produce a foul odor. This can come from the remnants of rotting food, bacteria, and, if your sewer line, actual human waste. As dirty drains get dirtier, these odors will become more prevalent. To encourage a cleaner, better-smelling home or office environment, regular drain cleaning is vital. Poor drainage, especially that associated with your sewer line, can also result in leakage. When you sewer line begins to leak into your yard, you will not only deal with strong odors, but also unsanitary conditions. Exposure to sewage can make you sick, while its existence in your yard will serve to attract rodents and other pests.
Our Plumbing Drain Cleaning Services
At LA Plumbing Company, we offer three standard varieties of non-invasive drain cleaning techniques. These include:
- Drain Jetting
When it comes to drain cleaning in the home, we will typically use a drain snake. An affordable and effective method of drain cleaning, snakes are preferred by many contractors and homeowners alike. Ineffectiveness in larger pipes, such as sewer lines, and the inability to totally clear certain clogs represent the only drawbacks of a drain snake. An alternative method, rodding, provides for the more comprehensive cleaning of a clogged pipe. Rodding can be performed by hand or machine, and consists of a flexible, jointed rod that is pushed through the line to clear blockages. An attachment head with razor-sharp teeth, chosen to fit the exact width of your problematic line, attaches to the end of the rod. Rodding will completely obliterate almost any obstruction, the debris from which gets removed through the subsequent flushing of the pipe.
Another popular method of residential sewer cleaning is drain jetting. This involves the use of specialized equipment that sends a highly pressurized jet of water through a pipe. This jet will blast through almost any blockage or obstruction, and furthermore wash the remnant materials down your line and into the municipal sewer. As overall drain professionals, we offer all of these preceding drain cleaning services, along with a couple of other practices for improved drain function.
