Drain Cleaning Tips for Your Home

Nov 19, 2015

Just about every drain in your home is going to get clogged periodically. The choice you have to make is how to go about fixing the problem. Sometimes, drain cleaning is easy enough to take care of on your own. Other times, you might just be better off calling in some professional help.

Are Store Bought Drain Cleaners a Good Idea?

Sometimes, using a store bought drain cleaner might be just the way to go. This is assuming you have a minor clog. These cleaners work using a chemical reaction to break up and dissolve clogs. Using it doesn’t require anything in the way of technical skills; just open the bottle and dump it down the drain.

It is important to know that there are some potential down sides when it comes to using a store bought drain cleaning agent.

  • It might not work. If you’ve got a stubborn clog that has been building up over time, liquid drain cleaner won’t be enough.
  • Liquid cleaner is also a short-term fix. While they might get the drains flowing, they won’t scrub or scour the pipes. You can bet that clog is bound to come back in the near future.
  • Another issue is that you are dumping some pretty powerful chemicals down your drain. Not only will that have an environmental impact, but could also be very dangerous for children or pets.

What is the Advantage of Hiring a Professional Plumber?

Professional drain cleaning will address more issues and provide a much more long-term solution. In a kitchen drain, grease, fats and soap builds up in the pipes. Bathroom drains become clogged with hair, grime and toothpaste residue.

At Donley Service Center, we use powerful, effective solutions to make sure your drains are completely unblocked. Our technicians will run a camera through your pipes to get a good idea of what kind of blockages are causing you problems.

Once that’s done, we can come up with the best solution for your situation. If you want to clean all the pipes in your home and make sure every clog is cleared out, a jetting service might be the right option for you. This involves running high pressure water through your pipes to remove any blockages.
