Some Causes of Blocks and the Solutions through 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. With a proper drainage system of waste, the owners and tenants of a building are ensured of a healthy and safe environment.
There are several reasons why drains could end up into a blockage. In order to carry out drain cleaning, you would then need the services of a skilled plumber. With the services of a plumber, the wastes will be properly drained from the building and reassure users of a clean environment.
When there is a blockage of drains in a building, then drain cleaning is to be required. Blocked drains are caused by many circumstances. 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. Know that grease and fatty substances too that are washed down the sink could get stuck on the sides of the drainage pipes causing blockage.
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 method of which a plumber can perform drain cleaning is by using a hyrdrojetter. With water that is under very high pressure, a hydrojetter would release it and thus remove all the dirt that are blocking the drains. The instrument is lowered by the plumber into the drain and pushes it until it reaches the location where there is a drainage 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. With a motor, the wires would be turned making the objects causing obstruction to breakdown into smaller particles, then these particles are pushed down the drain also allowing wastes to flow freely down the drain.
In order to conduct an efficient drain cleaning, the plumber has to be able to identify the blockage location.
