Many homeowners rush out to buy drain cleaning chemicals the moment they experience a major drain clog. While these are readily available at most hardware stores, they are not the best option in most situations. They don’t do a good job of clearing the drains, they could damage the pipes, and the chemicals are dangerous, especially around children and pets.
A Better Option
Many clogs are due in part to an excessive buildup of fats, oils, and grease (FOG). These substances solidify as they cool down in your pipes, allowing for the slow buildup of residue along with debris that collects along with the FOG over time.
To remove FOG and other tough clogs, we recommend calling your local plumbers for professional drain cleaning services—but only if your contractor offers the use of hydro jetters. Hydro jetting not only removes blockages from your drains, it also prevents them from coming back.
The Power of Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting is the use of a thin hose that can blast out water at an extremely high pressure. It has a nozzle that shoots out water in 360 degrees. The high-pressure water jet clears the sewer of any debris inside of the pipes, and it eliminates greasy residue in the drains.
Hydro jetting can be used as a way to remove blockages, but it works well for preventing clogs too. A professional may use cameras to look inside your drains after hydro jetting service to ensure they are completely clear, reducing the chances of a major drain clog in the near future.
Preventing Grease Buildup
The most important thing is that you do your best to prevent grease from building up in your drains in the first place. When cooking with fats, oils, and grease, allow the liquid to cool before getting rid of it in a separate trash container. Some grease is bound to make its way down the drains anyway, so use cold water when you are using your garbage disposal to break up fats and make it easier on the drains.
