What Our Plumbers Know About Drains and Drain Cleaning?

What you won't hear from other plumbing companies is that you can prevent your drains from being clogged in the first place.

The truth is that a properly installed and vented sewer line that is in healthy shape will not ever clog unless there is foreign debris in the drain. Foreign debris is defined as anything that does not belong in your drain or toilet such as q-tips, handy wipes, paper towels, feminine products, roots, etc.

When our plumbers are called to your house to clear your clogged drain, you can be assured that they have not only the appropriate equipment to clear your drain but also the knowledge to provide you with a solution to prevent you from having to call us back again.

Tips for Home Owners

Having a plunger on hand allows home owners to use their muscles and not chemicals to loosen the clog, which is effective and safe. When just one drain is clogged it usually means that the problem is local and may be removed with proper plunger techniques. Home owners will want to prepare boiling water to pour directly into the drain this will help loosen the clog as the homeowner begins to plunge the clog free.

When all else fails the home owner may then have to contact us to help them eliminate their clogged drains. Safely attempting to clear the drain on their own may help the plumber recognize the problem quicker which will bring the resolution of the problem as quickly and safely as possible.

How to Clear Clogged Drains Safely?

Any times people rush out to the grocery store to purchase liquid drain cleaners. This is neither the safest nor the most efficient way to clear clogged drains. In fact, some of these products when they come into contact with different cleaners can cause an eruption of the product. The other potential hazard of these products is that they can form hard build up if too much has been added that is virtually unremovable.

Finding the right ways to clear clogged drains in the Santa Cruz area will allow homeowners to clear clogged drains as safely as possible. Home owners who familiarize themselves with tools needed and questions to ask before a problem like this arises will be able to safely attempt to clear the clogged drain on their own. One of these questions may be what can I do to be prepared for the next clog? The answer may be very simple and that is making sure you have a plunger on hand.
