Commercial Drain Cleaning
A small clog here and there can be easy to fix, but if your drains are clogging regularly it could be causing damage to your plumbing’s interior and can lead to bigger problems in the future.
Why Is My Drain Clogging?
Bathroom Drains – Drains in bathroom sinks and showers usually become clogged when dirt and hair bind to soap scum on the walls of your pipes. The grime accumulates and restricts water flow to your fixtures.
Kitchen Drains – Put enough food down the drain on a regular basis and you’re sure to run into clogs every once in a while. However, the most common reason kitchen drains clog is not due to the amount of food, but the type of food. Grease and oil are the main substances to blame for kitchen sink clogs, as they cake onto the walls of the drain pipes quite easily.
Toilets – Clogs can happen in your toilet because of attempts to flush too much at once, or because items that are not meant to be flushed are placed in the toilet. Posting signs that warn employees and customers against flushing items like diaper wipes and feminine hygiene products can help to reduce the frequency of clogs.
Why Should I Have A Professional Clean My Drains?
Even if you’re able to unclog your drains temporarily, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a bigger issue lurking inside your plumbing system. Snaking drains and flushing them with chemicals can sometimes do more harm than good. Here are the benefits of professional drain clearing and cleaning:
Professional plumbers are equipped with hydro-jetting and rotor-rooting tools that enable them to clean your drains better than any store-bought product can. They are educated on which cleaning solutions are best to use and will avoid the use of anything that will harm your pipes.
Getting your drains and pipes cleaned on a regular basis helps extend the life of your plumbing and will significantly reduce the amount of plumbing emergencies that occur.
Commercial drains can be more difficult to clean than the plumbing in your home, as they get more use and are likely more intricate in structure. Hiring a professional who is well experienced with commercial plumbing will ensure that the job is done right.
