Unclogging Drains with a Drain Snake
Before we get to the unclogging process, let’s review the drain snake. There are many drain snakes on the market. Some come with cranks and other features, but the drain snake is essentially a slender and flexible auger about ½ inch in diameter. If you are unable to head to your local hardware store to buy one, you can put together a makeshift drain snake using an unraveled cloth hanger. You should be sure to cover the end of the cloth hanger with cloth to prevent scratching or damaging your drains though.
The process of unclogging with a drain snake is simple. Insert the drain snake into the drain, twisting and pushing until you feel and penetrate through the blockage. This should clear some way in the drain to allow waste and wastewater to flow through.
Steer Clear of Chemical Drain Cleaners
If you are dealing with a clog, then it can be tempting to grab a chemical drain cleaner to pour down the drains. These products are marketed as quick solutions, but you should know about the risks. The harsh chemicals in these products can corrode and deteriorate pipes, speeding up the expiration of your drains. They are especially harmful for septic systems that house “helpful” bacteria. The chemicals do threaten these bacteria.
Professional Drain Cleaning for Safe and Thorough Results
Unclogging the drains is certainly a solution but only a temporary one. If you are tired of pulling out the drain snake and elbow grease, then consider a long-lasting solution such as professional drain cleaning.
The plumbers at Rooter Hero Plumbing use hydro jetting technology to clean the drains safely and thoroughly. We start with a video inspection to pinpoint the blockage and assess the condition of your drains. If the drains are sturdy, then we blast the blockage with pressurized water. Hydro jetting is like pressure washing the inside of the pipes!
