What You Should Know About Drain Cleaning

If you have ever had a clogged drain, you know how quickly things can move from slow sink drains to a complete clog. This problem is as inconvenient as it is costly. If you want to keep your drains clean, you should become acquainted with the drain cleaning services available to you.

When it comes to your home’s drain cleaning, there are a few things you should be aware of, and Option One is the team that can help you with that. We are plumbing experts in North Carolina, South Carolina, Arizona, Wyoming, and California.

How Do Drain Clogs Form?

Your plumbing system works hard every day. Even minor failures can have a cascading effect and result in a clog. To avoid future clogs, try to avoid the following:

  • Hard Water

Hard water is usually a component of your water system. However, it does not stay that way as the sediment eventually settles at the bottom of the pipes. It is critical to handle hard water since it might clog your home’s plumbing system.

  • Inorganic Waste

You do not want to throw anything down your garbage disposal that is not food scraps, and you do not want to flush anything that is not organic waste. If you do, you will end up putting yourself on a fast track to a clogged drain.

  • Fat, Oil, and Grease

Many homeowners are surprised to realize that pouring fats, oils, and grease down the kitchen drain causes costly, unnecessary sewer blockages. The environment is also affected when these spills overflow into storm drains and directly into the bay damaging the habitat of local fish and wildlife . These blockages can cause devastating sewage backups directly into homes and businesses.

Now that you understand how drain clogs form, you should become acquainted with how the Option One team tackles them.

How We Handle Clogs

There are two basic methods we use to deal with a drain clog. We either use a motorized drain snake or hydro-jetting services.

A motorized drain snake is a more sophisticated form of an auger. Our skilled and experienced plumbers dig down into clogs, break them up or remove them with a corkscrew motion. We understand that you have access to augers as a homeowner, but we do not recommend that you use them on your own. Professional service provides you with the assurance that the job is done right the first time.

Hydro-jetting is another method we might use to clear your drain clog. With hydro-jetting, a highly pressurized stream of water is blasted into your drainage system. This clears your drains of any hard water deposits or other dirt and debris accumulated over time.

Why Should You Put Your Trust in an Expert?

You should always seek the help of an expert for your residential plumbing problems. We have said it before, and we will say it again because it is so important. With professional plumbing services, you can ensure that your plumbing needs are met now while also keeping your plumbing system in great shape in the future.
