But Why Hire a Professional Plumber?

Sure, you could go do the drain cleaning yourself; by using drain cleaners however there is a risk by doing this as it might cause unnecessary damages.

Drain cleaners are not as effective and often only clear enough of the clog to allow the remainder of the cleaner to shoot past and down the drain. It won’t be long before what is left behind forms a brand new clog.

Hand augers or “snakes” may be a better option, but again, there is plenty of room for user error. They only have so much reach, so they are not particularly good for clogs that may be deeper in the system. Plus, you could wind up forcing through the clog, but not removing the parts clinging to the pipe. The remainder can trap materials as they pass through, and your pipes can quickly clog up again.

How Often Should I Have My Drains Cleaned?

How Often Should I Have My Drains Cleaned?

While it might not be something you think about bu having your drain cleaned is an important part of keeping your drain and sewer system in good condition. Despite this importance, however, most people don’t actually ever get their drains cleaned unless there is a problem.

If you want to make sure that your drains continue to operate to their full potential, you’ll need to make sure that they get the proper professional attention from Logical Heating & Plumbing solutions. With that in mind, let’s take a quick look at when you should have your drains cleaned.

Scheduling Regular Drain Cleaning

Drain clogs don’t happen all at once. They tend to occur as waste builds up on the walls of the drain pipe over time. As the waste continues to build up, the flow of water through the pipe will become restricted until it is completely cut off. In order to prevent that amount of waste from building up in the first place, it is a good idea to schedule drain cleaning for all of your drains at least once a year. That should be more than enough to make sure that your drains don’t clog, assuming normal levels of wear and tear.

When Problems Can Occur

Of course, sometimes problems just happen regardless of how prepared you are for them. Maybe you forgot to have your drains cleaned one year and now you are experiencing a clog. Maybe the drain is experiencing more use than normal and once a year isn’t enough anymore. Regardless of the reason, you should call for drain cleaning as soon as you suspect that a problem is developing with your drain. Faster responses means more damage prevented so don’t wait.

Still having a problem with your drain? Don’t wait until it’s too late. Now is the perfect time to start enquiring, so give Logical Heating and Plumbing a call. They will be on hand to answer any questions and can sort out the problem straight away.

Why Store Bought Drain Cleaners Are Not a Good Idea

Why Store Bought Drain Cleaners Are Not a Good Idea

Let’s take a look at why hiring a professional drain cleaning services are a much better option.

Having a drain clogged is every homeowner nightmare, so you might be tempted to just go to a store and pick up an off-the-shelf drain cleaner to take care of it. This is a mistake as store bought drain cleaners actually leave your drains worse off in the long run, even if they solve the immediate problem.

The Problem with Store Bought Cleaners

The reason that store bought drain cleaners are so effective at cleaning out the drains clogs is that the vast majority of them are highly corrosive. This eats through the clog well enough, but it will also damage the pipes. If you use store bought cleaners over a period of years to treat drain clogs, you will end up degrading your pipes to the point that they need to be replaced. Store bought drain cleaners also don’t completely get rid of the waste build-up on the walls of the pipe. This makes it easier for clogs to form in the future.

Professional Drain Cleaning

Professional plumbers such as Logical Heating & Plumbing Solution, are well aware of how damaging store bought drain cleaners can be, which is why they don’t use them. Instead, they use a couple of different procedure to get rid of clogs. Drain snaking is a procedure that involves using an auger on a long cable to drill through the clog. This is the most common method of drain cleaning. Hydro-jetting is also used, which basically involves firing a high pressure stream of water through the pipe to blast all of the waste out of it. These procedures clear up the clog without damaging the pipes.
