The Advantages of Early Drain Cleaning

You might be wondering about the difference between early drain cleaning and normal drain cleaning, and that’s a normal thing to think about! After all, you’re probably used to calling us for drain cleaning services when you’ve noticed your drains are either slowing down or suffering from a complete clog.

The truth is that you could gain more benefits from early drain cleaning than from calling us when it might be too late. Scheduling drain cleaning services by a plumber in Sewell, NJ yearly, in the same way you would schedule HVAC maintenance, is a great habit to get into. This would minimize the number of clogs you deal with in the long run, while also improving the quality of your plumbing system.

Today, we’ll go over all of the advantages of hiring a plumber for this kind of work before you’re in the middle of a crisis!

How Drain Cleaning Works

Look, a lot of homeowners envision strange things when they think about drain cleaning. If you close your eyes and imagine just a plumber flushing water down your drain or using some damp rags and a wire, then you’re way off the mark. Indeed, things have changed a lot since the 1950s when technology was still developing.

Plumbers have access to some pretty serious, heavy-duty cleaning methods that are incredibly effective at removing blockages, cleaning drain systems, and clearing our contaminants. Here are just a few examples of how a plumber can make a big difference to your drain.

Hydro Jetting

If your drains are covered in grime and need to be cleaned by some kind of magical and powerful cleaning device, then you’re better off with professional hydro jetting services. A hydro jet is basically an auger with a pressurized water spraying system on the end of it that sends powerful streams of water in all directions of your plumbing system.

By using all natural elements, (i.e. just water and pressure) it’s a natural cleaning solution for your whole drain system. It’s powerful enough to remove even the toughest grime and clear even the most stubborn drain clogs.

Industrial Plumbing Equipment

Sometimes you don’t need an intense hydro jet experience for your drains to be cleaned. Plumbers have all sorts of industrial-grade equipment to help clear your drain out and remove any budding clogs from the mix. This can be anything from an industrial-grade drain snake, to a specialized plunger that’s fitted to a specific size drain.

Video Pipe Inspection

If things are a little more complicated and you’re not sure of the condition of your drain system, then you can talk to us about video pipe inspection. Video pipe inspection is a process by which we send a tiny video camera into your pipe attached to an auger. This will then allow us to see the exact condition of your plumbing system, discuss what needs to be done next, and talk about whether drain cleaning services or drain repair services will cut it. This is perfect for hesitant homeowners who really want to know the precise condition of their drains.
