Are you considering having your drains professionally cleaned, but are unsure whether it’s really worth it? Professional drain cleaning can be incredibly beneficial in a number of ways, including preventing costly repairs down the road.
Benefits of Professional Drain Cleaning
Any plumber worth their salt will tell you that professional drain cleaning is absolutely recommended and worth it. Here are the top reasons why you should hire a professional to clean your drains once a year or so.
Professional drain cleaning helps prevent clogs before they impact your system. By removing small bits of debris and buildup, your pipes are kept clean and that debris will not move around and eventually create a nasty blockage. This means that you can rest easy knowing that your drains are clear, and you won’t be surprised by a sudden clog that ruins your day.
Reduces Costly Repairs
Keeping your drains flowing smoothly with regular professional cleanings will significantly reduce the likelihood that you will have to pay an arm and a leg for drain repairs later. Investing in drain cleaning services annually is a lot less expensive than sporadically having to call in an emergency plumber to unclog a difficult blockage or repair a burst pipe.
Reduces Unpleasant Odours
All that gunk that sticks to the inside of your pipes can do more than cause clogs, it can also send unpleasant odours up out of your drains, resulting in a smelly kitchen sink or shower – yuck. Having your drains professionally cleaned helps get rid of bacteria, food bits, and other buildup on the inside of your pipes, which means your drains will be smelling fresh, and you don’t have to worry about unpleasant odours lingering around your home.
Doesn’t Damage Your Pipes
One of the biggest advantages of professional drain cleaning techniques over DIY ones is that professional techniques will not damage your pipes. Many people’s first reflex in the face of a stubborn clog is to reach for a bottle of liquid drain cleaner. However, drain-cleaning liquids are full of corrosive chemicals that eat away at clogs but, unfortunately, also eat away at your pipes, eventually resulting in weakening, cracking, and leaking. Vision’s experienced technicians use specialized tools that will clear your pipes without damaging them.
How is Professional Drain Cleaning Done?
So, how exactly does professional drain cleaning work? It is a comprehensive process that employs advanced techniques such as camera inspection and hydro jetting to ensure thorough and efficient results.
Camera inspection is typically the first step, where a small, waterproof camera is inserted into the drain to visually inspect its interior. This allows our skilled technicians to identify any blockages, cracks, or other issues with precision. Once the problem areas are pinpointed, hydro jetting comes into play. This method utilizes a high-pressure water jet to blast away debris, grease, and any other obstructions within the pipes, leaving them clean and free-flowing.
