If you’re having trouble with your drain, the first step is for us to perform an inspection. This allows us to determine where the problem spots are, and therefore helps us determine what solutions you need.
Oftentimes, this will necessitate cleaning your pipes to get rid of the dirt, grime, and roots that can build up over time. Below, you’ll learn more about the two advanced drain cleaning techniques we use: mechanical and hydro-jet.
Hydro-Jet Drain Cleaning
Hydro jets force high-pressure water through the drain, which allows us to break down the buildup currently causing problems. The pressure is high enough to handle all kinds of build up, including tree roots.
Before cleaning your drains with a hydro jet, we’ll need to inspect it. Because this an extremely effective, high-powered technique, it’s not good for weaker pipes.
Mechanical Drain Cleaning
Mechanical drain cleaning, also known as scraping, is useful if the deposits in your pipe have calcified and are extremely difficult to remove. Essentially, we insert a device into the drain. It then moves through the pipe, scraping away all of the build-up.
Because it doesn’t require water to flow through your drain, it’s especially important if other methods are proving ineffective. It’s one of the more corrosive forms of drain cleaning since we’re scraping the pipe, which is why we need to pair this technique with our cured-in-place pipe replacement technique.
Why is Drain Cleaning Important?
There are a number of reasons why you may need to get your drain cleaned. We’ll perform an inspection to make sure, but various types of buildup are often responsible for draining problems, since the water is unable to move past the buildup in an efficient manner.
We also need to clean your drain before using our cured-in-place pipe replacement method. This is because your current pipe needs to be at its proper diameter and our materials need to be able to properly attach to it.
In some situations, you may be able to clean your drain yourself with a snake. However, hydro-jets and mechanical drain cleaning are both stronger, more advanced solutions that need to be performed by a professional plumber.
