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. 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. 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. There are several reasons why there is blocked drains. One instance would be too big foreign objects that are flushed down the toilet that cause blocking. 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.
Other circumstances that would cause drain blockage in time are leaves which are not properly swept off and disposed off in garbage that would find their way into the drainage pipes, and even roots of trees, because they are attracted to moisture, will crack the pipes to get water and this could cause blocked drains.
A plumber can perform drain cleaning with the use of a hydrojetter. 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. The pressurized water will then break down the blockage into small particles, will also get rid of the particles on the sides of the pipes, thus allowing the water to drain drown the waste freely without obstacles.
Another method to solve drain blockage is the drain snake, which is a long and flexible cord that is made up of wires, and these are pushed down the drain to the area where there is blockage. The wires at the end of the cord will then be turned by the motor of the instrument causing the obstructions to break down into small particles, then these particles are pushed down the drain and there is a free flow of waste down the drain then.
In order to conduct an efficient drain cleaning, the plumber has to be able to identify the blockage location.
