Drain cleaning, and especially the kitchen drain, comprises a large part of the service calls a plumber in Fort Worth receives. Fat, oil, grease and food particles are the primary cause of a kitchen drain clog. With extreme care, kitchen clogs can be drastically reduced.
In the kitchen allow grease to cool and pour into a sealable container. Dispose of it in the trash, or take to a recycling station. Don’t just scrape plates; wipe plates with a paper towel and dispose of in the trash. Use paper towels to remove all of the grease possible, and use a spatula to scrape away stuck on food from pots and pans. You can also save leftover fast food napkins for this purpose.
While grease and food are the main problem in the kitchen, hair and soap are the distinct source of bathroom clogs. In the kitchen, showers and tubs, drain screens will go a long way in preventing solid material from contributing to drain clogs. In bathroom sinks with popup valves, it isn’t possible to use a screen. However, use a basin for shaving, and dispose of it outdoors to prevent hair from clogging the drain.
In a typical situation, drain clogs develop slowly over time, and drains will become sluggish before a complete blockage occurs. When all drains are slow, and especially if accompanied by gurgling at other low points, it typically indicates a clogged sewer line. These can be signs of an advanced clog and the potential for sewer backup. Contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth for effective drain cleaning.
Other issues with drain clogs include recurring clogs. Recurring clogs are due to a problem that is not being resolved by drain cleaning. This situation calls for the services of a professional plumber who will provide a video pipe inspection to identify the nature and the precise location of the clog or its causes. Clogging can occur due to different types of clogs, or damage to a drainpipe or sewer pipe. A video pipe inspection takes the guess work out, enabling the effective treatment by a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth. Our drain and sewer pipe services will put an end to recurring clogs.
For example, grease clogs are a common reason behind recurring clogs. Traditional plumber’s tools can’t thoroughly remove a grease clog due to the nature of it. Soon, the remaining clog has captured new grease, and resulting in yet another clog. Short of replacing the pipe, hydro jetting is the only truly effective means of ridding your pipes of grease.
Furthermore, hydro jetting cleans so thoroughly, it ensures clean pipes for an extended time, especially when you exercise caution in what goes down the drain.
What Hydro Jetting Does
Hydro jetting uses highly pressurized water with forward and reverse jets operating for a full 360 degrees, providing the effective removal of clogs, including grease and even tree roots in sewer lines.
