Clogged drains are a frustrating problem. Fortunately, plunging will typically take care the clog. However, when plunging fails it’s time to call a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington. Clogged drains are especially a problem in restaurant kitchens, hospitals, schools, and other facilities where cooking occurs, and also in public restrooms. If you have a clogged drain and need drain cleaning, contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington.
A plumber has numerous tools for resolving clogged drains. Modern plumbing begins with the use of a state-of-the-art sewer camera, a small but powerful, and waterproof, high resolution camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable providing a live view inside the drain and sewer pipe. The image is displayed on a monitor for the plumber to view. Once the type of clog is identified, and its location, our plumber in Arlington will determine the ideal solution to restore effective drainage.
When faced with difficult clogs, such as grease clogs, and tree roots, a higher technology is required. Hydro jetting is unquestionably the most effective drain cleaning tool available. Hydro jetting can even smooth the surface of the corroded metal sewer pipe, improving its ability to drain efficiently, without holding paper and other debris that can result in blockage.
Every household and business could benefit from periodic drain cleaning. Some will require drain cleaning more often than others do. Restaurants, for example, can benefit from monthly hydro jetting. However, for homes or businesses, when drainage begins to slow, it’s best to schedule service without waiting for a blockage to occur. The consequences of waiting can be drain damage, and the potential for disease when a sewer backup occurs. A Ben Franklin plumber in Fort Worth can provide the plumbing services you need to maintain efficient drainage.
There are reasons for repetitive clogs, the interior of drain and sewer pipes can narrow over time, due to buildup of scum and in some cases debris. A bellied pipe can be identified in the sewer line causing repetitive clogs. The video pipe inspection can identify a bellied pipe, for example, and hydro jetting will clean a pipe with a narrowing interior due to buildup, down to the pipe walls.
Periodic cleaning of residential drains and the sewer pipe can prevent clogs under normal circumstances. The ideal frequency will depend on your household habits, and the care provided with the use of drains. However, it is recommended for the average home to schedule septic and drain cleaning services every 2-3 years. On the other hand, a business resulting in heavy grease and food residue in drains, should consider scheduling professional drain cleaning each month to prevent drainage issues that may temporarily shut a business down.
