Understanding the Causes of Blocks and Solutions in Drain Cleaning
All buildings need to be provided with clean water and effective draining of waste so that internal activities will run smoothly. With a proper drainage system of waste, the owners and tenants of a building are ensured of a healthy and safe environment.
Sometimes, drains would end up blocking due to some reasons. And so when this incident happens, you would require the services of a skilled plumber to carry out cleaning of the drain. An owner or a tenant will be assured of a clean environment when the plumber will successfully drain the wastes from the building.
At some point we will experience blockage of our drains, and it is during this time that drain cleaning is needed. There are many occasions that would cause blocked drains. An example would be too big foreign objects that are flushed down the toilet and are too big to pass the drain. Sometimes, hair are washed down the sink, have accumulated in the drainage pipes, and would result to drainage blockage. Usually, we wash down grease and fatty substances down the sink and this would result to blockage of drainage pipes once they get stuck on the sides of these pipes.
Also, when leaves are not properly swept and disposed off in garbage will find their way easily into the drainage pipes causing a blockage, and also the roots of trees, because of their nature to get water or moisture, can crack the pipes thereby causing a blockage.
One method of which a plumber can perform drain cleaning is by using a hyrdrojetter. This gadget releases water which is under high pressure and will remove any dirt that is causing blockage in the drain. Lowering the hydrojetter into the drain, the plumber pushes it until it reaches the area where there is a blockage. With the use of the pressurized water from the hydrojetter, blockage will result to small particles, substances that are on stuck onto the sides of the pipes will be rid off, and so allowing the waste to flow freely out the drain.
Referred to as the drain auger is the drain snake, another method to solve drain blockage, and this instrument has wires that are pushed down the drain up to the location where blockage is happening. The wires are then turned by the motor resulting to breaking down the obstruction into small particles, then these small particles are pushed down the drain thereby allowing free flowing of wastes.
Where the location of the blockage is, is an important consideration so that the plumber can perform drain cleaning efficiently.
