Here’s a new way to look at your drain cleaning service: pest control for the microscopic ones. As long as your drains are flowing, and you probably have more than you realize, nothing gets a chance to stick around and cause harm. Once your drains back up, you’ve got who-knows-what in your sink, overflowing onto your floors and beyond, and even filling up your basement. Tioga Contractors plumbing technicians help homeowners avoid these nasty images and keep their homes healthy and clean.
Different Drains Have Different Problems
Each of your drains has different characteristics, from the pipes and joints that carry waste to the types of waste that pass through. Aging, corroded pipes and tight joints can provide places for material to accumulate. Kitchen waste can be bulky, greasy, and often needs a lot of water to keep it moving down the pipes. If it doesn’t get this push, clogs build. Bathroom sinks get hair, grease, soap, and often objects that speed the formation of clogs. Toilets, much of the same. Showers and tubs backup from hair and thick soap residue. Your drain cleaning service has experience keeping each of these drains, and others in your home, clear and clean so they not only keep flowing, but avoid future build-up.
The Difference Between Maintenance Drain Cleaning Service and Emergencies
When you call for a slow or backed-up sink or toilet, you’re getting one fixture flowing again. It may be an acute case of things falling down the drain, or the accumulation of material in the pipes may have finally narrowed to the point where it needs a thorough cleaning. It’s an urgent, disruptive situation. You may have standing water in the sink, or an overflow from sinks and toilets that’s spreading bacteria and contamination and seeping into your floors and walls. Our people will auger, plunge, hydrojet and use other techniques to make sure you’re all set. You may need remediation services to ensure that the contamination is cleaned and mold or mildew doesn’t grow. Meanwhile, your other sinks, toilets, and other fixtures may be building up to the point where another emergency arises.
Maintenance cleaning helps prevent the damage and health dangers of drain emergencies. It also ensures that your home’s drain system gets a thorough treatment, including drains you don’t think of, like your laundry drain, utility sink, and even the drain in your basement floor. We make sure that your pipes have been cleaned to prevent build-up, getting you ahead of the game. We also make sure that your main drain pipes are in good shape, ensuring that a clog between floors doesn’t result in backups in all your upstairs drains. We’ll also check for sewer line issues, using video inspection if appropriate, helping avoid one of the biggest homeowner challenges you can face. After all, knowledge is power, and scheduling a routine sewer line cleaning or repair beats the alternative.
It All Flows Downhill — Except When It Doesn’t
Your home’s waste plumbing is a system, with smaller pipes from sinks and toilets joining larger pipes to carry your wastewater to your sewer and out to the street or septic tank. Clogs in the larger pipes do happen, and they are often harder to locate and clean. We have the inspection and cleaning technologies to do the job, and to make sure that you don’t have to deal with multiple backups because of a clog in a common line. When you find that you’re getting slow draining in several places, or your basement drain is suddenly backing up and making a mess, chances are there’s a traffic jam on the pipes leading your waste on its way. Our drain cleaning service can make quite a difference when we clear out one of these lines.
Drains You Don’t Think Of
Frequent use helps keep drains clear and allows material to flow on its way. Some of your drains may not see as much action, and if you suddenly start using them you could be surprised by a clog or backup. Your utility sink is one example, and what you pour down could make quite a mess if it overflows instead. Your basement drain is also critical, and needs to be ready to handle emergencies such as water heater leaks or large spills even when it’s been unused for years. You may also have guest bathrooms, basement restrooms, or other plumbing that doesn’t see much activity that could use an inspection and a visit from our drain cleaning service to ensure that the plumbing is in good shape.
