Drain Cleaning Do’s and Don’ts for your Lake Forest Home

Do you take care of your drains? We often think of our plumbing system as giving us pressurized water throughout the various appliances, fixtures, and faucets, but the other half is equally important. Our wastewater needs somewhere to go. Drainpipes, the sewer line, and your septic tank need to be routinely maintained just like any other part of your home that you want to perform well. But drain cleaning is not something that should be undertaken by just anyone. Only a professional plumber has the training, equipment, and know-how to ensure that your drains are cleaned thoroughly and safely. Amateur, DIY plumbing is not advised. You could end up causing more harm than good.

Call Saddleback Plumbing today for excellent drain cleaning services throughout the Lake Forest CA area.

  • Do. Make sure you hire a professional plumber for drain cleaning. When you call a certified plumber, you know that you’re dealing with an experience professional who knows exactly how to approach your drain cleaning need. Whether you have a partial blockage, slow drain, or simply want to stay ahead of any problems with a preventive plumbing solution, we can help. While plungers and augers are popular tools used to dislodge clogs, nothing beats hydro-jetting. This powerful method ensures that the interior of your drainpipe is cleaned thoroughly by utilizing the blasting power of a special compressor, and the range of a 360° swivel-head nozzle.
  • Don’t. Your drains are not invincible, and you cannot expect them to last long if you are indiscriminate about what goes down them. There are numerous clog removal products available at your local grocery store, and while it is tempting to allow a harsh chemical to do the work, it is not advisable. Putting harsh chemicals down your drains can lead to serious issues with your drainpipes. Attempting to use an auger in your home can also lead to pipe damage—not all augers are alike, so make sure that you hire a pro for any drain cleaning service.

The results of our Lake Forest CA drain cleaning speak for themselves.
