Professional Drain Cleanings
Professional drain cleanings are beneficial in many ways. They remove any clogs, build-up, or other debris in your drain pipes. They are an effective and safe way to clean your drains. Using a traditional snake or harsh drain cleaners can damage your pipes. Drain and sewer jetting uses a high-pressure water hose to clean out the pipes, which is very effective and faster.
For your bathroom drains, be mindful of what you flush, and use hair catchers to prevent clogs. Slow drains or backups are commonly caused by certain materials or waste products that shouldn’t be flushed or put down the drains.
Kitchen drains are susceptible to clogs from grease, food scraps, and other solids. Installing a garbage disposal will not completely solve this issue, but it can help. If you already have a garbage disposal, make sure you know how to operate it and what you can and cannot put in your disposal. Things like bones and coffee grounds can cause clogs and damage to the garbage disposal.
