Understanding the Causes of Blocks and Solutions in Drain Cleaning
There is a need for users in homes and buildings to have clean water and draining system that is effective so that activities in the building will run effectively. Through proper drainage of waste from the building, a healthy and safety environment and use of the owners and tenants are secured.
There are circumstances that would have drains blocking. In order to carry out drain cleaning, you would then need the services of a skilled plumber. An owner or a tenant will be assured of a clean environment when the plumber will successfully drain the wastes from the building.
When there is a blockage of drains in a building, then drain cleaning is to be required. There are several reasons why there is 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. Other substances like grease and fats which we usually wash down the sink could get stuck on the sides of our drainage pipes.
Other situations that would result to drain blockage are leaves of plants which are not properly swept off and disposed in the garbage that could make their way into the drainage pipes, and also the roots of trees that can crack the pipes in order to get the water they need, and the cracking of pipes would lead to a drain blockage.
One of the ways that a plumber can conduct drain cleaning is with the use of a hydrojetter. A hydrojetter is an instrument that can remove any dirt that has blocked the drains through the very high pressure of water that it releases. 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.
Another solution for drain blockage is with the use of the drain snake, described as a long and flexible cord composed of wires, and are pushed down into the drain and reaching t the blocked area. 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.
