Often, homeowners will use store-bought chemicals in an attempt to keep their pipes clear. Unfortunately, these cleaners are caustic and will cause damage to plumbing overtime. Additionally, these store-bought cleaners, if they work at all, will not completely clear the pipes. They can only remove superficial blockages meaning more severe blockages can occur and your pipes may not be draining as well as they should.
A professional drain cleaning by a licensed plumber can do wonders for your home's pipes. Rather than use caustic, ineffective and dangerous chemicals to clear drainage lines, a professional plumber will use a drain pipe snake.
Drain pipe snakes are used by professional plumbers to reach deep into your home's pipes. They are good for clearing any blockages caused by organic matter, such as hair. Professional drain cleaning not only removes established blockages but can also remove potential blockages by eliminating material build up on the walls of the pipes. A plumber clearing or maintaining your pipes using this method can also tell when a foreign object has been introduced into the pipe causing a potential blockage.
Professional drain cleaning can also bring to light existing problematic conditions within your home's plumbing. Damage, such as cracked or eroding pipes, can be discovered during a professional drain cleaning that can lead to necessary repairs that keep your plumbing flowing free and clear and correct drainage issues.
Much of the east coast of the United States experiences heavy rains from thunderstorms that roll through the area during the summertime. Keeping your drains clear of debris and potential clog-causing material can mean a reduced chance of water back up and flooding.
