When you hear the word plumbing, you may immediately think of the faucets and the fixtures that deliver clean, potable water into your home. Can you imagine how less convenient that service would be, though, without the drains in your plumbing system to dispose of that water? Your drains play a vital role in your home, which is exactly why you should be concerned with keeping your drain lines in great working condition.
Clogs are easily the most common problem that homeowners may experience with their drainage system. Just because they are so common, however, does not mean that you don’t need professional services to resolve them. The best way to deal with a clog is to eliminate the conditions that lead to them in the first place. That may not always be possible, but professional drain cleaning in New Port Richey, FL will help you to keep your drains flowing freely.
What Causes Clogged or Slow-Moving Drains?
There are a lot of reasons as to why your drains could become clogged or start to move slowly. Some of these are definitely beyond a homeowner’s control. For instance, it is actually possible for tree roots to make their way into a drainage system, blocking the pipes as they seek out water. You may also have hard water that is leaving deposits in your drains. This can restrict water flow.
However, most drain clogs are actually the homeowner’s fault. Hair is a major cause of clogged shower drains, for example. Food getting into the kitchen drain is also very common. Even if you are careful to avoid getting food scraps in the drain, you may wind up with grease in the drain if you don’t dispose of it properly. Grease can congeal when it cools down, causing clogs.
Can’t I Clean My Own Drains?
If you’ve ever been in a hardware store, then you definitely know that there are plenty of products that you can buy that will let you “clean” your own drains. If you’ve used these products in the past, however, you probably know exactly how ineffective they really are.
Harsh chemical cleaners, for instance, aren’t a good option. They may clear just enough of the clog to allow water to flow throughout it. They definitely are not going to effectively and thoroughly clear that clog, though, and it is only a matter of time before the clog reforms.
Drain snakes may be a better option, but again, it’s putting a bandage on a wound. If the clog is not that deep in the system, sure, you may be able to pull it out. However, if the clog is deeper, you likely won’t be able to reach it. Worse, you may force the snake through the clog, thinking that you’ve cleared it, only to leave much behind.
