Many residential, commercial, and industrial real estate owners are well aware of the fact that keeping the drains, drainpipes, and sewer pipes clean on a consistent basis is an important piece of the property maintenance puzzle. That being said far too many property owners are unaware of the fact that attempting the job themselves is dangerous, costly, and for the most part ineffective. Cleaning the drains in a proper manner is not as simple as going down to the local hardware store, purchasing some of that off the shelf liquid drain cleaner, and pouring it down the drains.
In all actuality the drain cleaning agents do little more than slightly chip away at the buildup of water scales, food grease, food particles, hair, soap scum, and shampoo residue that builds up on a daily basis. For example, have you ever experienced a clogged drain in the sink and used the liquid drain cleaner to clear it? If so you will notice that the clog only goes away for a short period of time, like a few days or a week. That is because the drain cleaning agent only removes enough of the clog that the wastewater can pass through.
The debris quickly builds right back up to the point that it blocks the drain all over again. It ends up turning into an endless cycle of pouring the stuff down the drain. In essence you are literally pouring your money down the drain instead of effectively solving the situation. The chemicals in the liquid drain cleaner also eat away at the drainpipe and sewer pipe materials. The bottom line is that the more you use the stuff the more risks you are taking that it will permanently damage the pipes.
On the other hand, a professional plumbing contractor, like Northridge Plumber has the proper tools and equipment to keep the drains clean on a regular basis without taking the risk of damaging the system. For example, a popular method that many plumbing contractors use is called Hydro Jetting. The procedure incorporates the use of a high-tech machine to spray pressurized water through the drainpipes and sewer pipes in order to completely flush them out. When the correct amount of water pressure is used all of the gunk that is clinging to the interior surface areas of the pipes is simply washed away.
If too little water pressure is used than it will not effectively clean the pipes. However, if too much water pressure is used it can actually crack and break the drainpipes and sewer pipes which can lead to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars of repair work in the future. That is why a hydro jetting machine should only be used by a professional plumbing technician. They are both experienced and trained to know exactly how much water pressure is required based on the age and condition of the pipes, along with the material that the pipes are made of.
