Why Do You Need Professional Drain Cleaning Services?

If you have a clogged drain in your home or commercial facility, it’s important to get it taken care of right away. If you don’t address the situation immediately, even a simple clogged sink drain has the potential to cause all kinds of problems, including damage to your property and your health. Stagnant water caused by blocked drain pipes can emit a musty odor. This unpleasant smell can travel up into your living or working area, making for an uncomfortable environment. This is a sure sign that it’s time for a professional drain cleanout!

A clogged pipe can also allow water to leak into a foundation. This not only weakens the structural integrity of a building, but it can also let water in through the floorboards, causing them to stain and weaken over time. If a clogged pipe is left unattended for too long, it could lead to flooding and stagnant water, which attracts and breeds mildew, mold, and unwanted insects — all of which are serious health risks.

A professional drain cleaning is an effective and affordable preventative measure to ensure the health of your plumbing system, but unfortunately, emergencies still do happen from time to time. If you ever find yourself in need of a trustworthy technician, you can count on Western Washington’s leading drain clearing company.

Troubleshooting Clogged Drains

When a drain gets clogged, many homeowners try to solve the problem on their own, turning to a couple of common DIY remedies. Using a plunger might work in some situations, but it can also push the clog further down into the pipe. This creates an even bigger, harder-to-reach problem in the future. People often try to eliminate the clog with a store-bought, chemical-based liquid drain cleaner, Harts Services highly advises against using chemical cleaners because of both the potential negative environmental impacts and the effect it can have on your pipes, contributing to the corrosion of your pipes and entire plumbing system

The equipment we might use to clean your drain and bust serious clogs include:

  • Toilet Augers
    A toilet auger works the opposite way that a plunger does. Rather than dislodging the blockage with negative pressure, it actually pushes into the blockage, working further into where the obstruction is taking place. The auger or “snake” is then used to push the clog out of the drain pipe, leaving a clear path for water to flow freely. The auger’s corkscrew-shaped tip helps force it further down into the clog, making it easier to clear.
  • Mainline Cable Machines
    For blockages in the main sewer line, which are usually more than 30 feet away from localized blockage in the house, a mainline cable machine is needed. Although some big-box hardware stores have these available for rent, we recommend that you hire a professional due to the extreme force and skill required to operate.
  • Hydro Jetters
    A hydro jetter is a pump-and-hose system that uses high-powered water jets to clear residential and commercial drain pipes. Most high-pressure water jetters will operate with up to 4,000 PSI of pressure and will push anywhere from 2–18 gallons of water per minute through a pipe.
