Drain Clearing for Beginners

drain clearing

Drains form an integral part of any household, which means that drain clearing will, too. As your drain clearing professionals, we can provide all the inside tips and tricks of the trade when it comes to the upkeep and maintenance of your home drainage systems.

Why Would I Need My Drain to be Cleared?

Whether it’s a grease and residue build-up in your kitchen sink and pipes or a hair build-up blocking your bathroom drains, drain clearing is an essential part of all general household maintenance. Typically, drain clearing can relate to the use of a plunger, air burst drain cleaners, and handheld drain augers. If your drain is severely clogged, more sophisticated equipment, such as sewer jetters and electric drain cleaners, may be used.

How Do I Know If My Drain Needs to be Cleared?

Finding out if your drain needs to be cleared is a lot easier than actually clearing it. If you notice that your sinks or toilets (or any other opening leading to a pipe), is not draining as quickly or efficiently as it normally would or if it’s not draining at all, you can be assured that drain clearing is most likely needed.

Can I Clear My Drain Myself?

We’ve all heard the home-care horror stories, of drain clearer, reacting and home DIY jobs gone bad. It’s important to note that drain clearers are often made of harsh chemical substances that, if used incorrectly, can have severely harmful effects and which can be deadly in the hands of children. For this reason, drain clearing should be left to the experts who will not only have the necessary skills and expertise needed to handle all drain clearing necessities but the equipment and insurance, too.
