Drain Cleaning is Best Left to the Professionals

October 11, 2013

Drain CleaningThose seeking a Richmond plumber need look no further. Here at Tap Roots Plumbing & Heating, we offer drain cleaning services, remedying clogged drains with the utmost professionalism. From sinks to toilets, a clogged drain is not only inconvenient, it can also cause expensive water damage to your home if left untreated.

There are many reasons why a drain may clog. The most basic cause is residue build up over time. Hard water can cause calcification, which can then trap hair and other debris in your drain. Soap can also be a culprit, leaving a film behind that is a magnet for attracting clogs. In either event, you will soon find yourself with one big mess on your hands.

Methods for Cleaning Drains

A traditional method of clearing a block from a clogged drain involves snaking the drain, which can break up blocks and send them on their way. High power water jetting is another option. A pressurized jet of water is sent down the drain in attempts to burst the clog. This option offers an additional benefit, as the force of the water can remove build up, thereby preventing future clogs from occurring.

While it may be tempting to unclog a drain on your own, it is not recommended. Chemical drain cleaners can be expensive, as well as harmful to children and pets, and many times they simply do not work. With professionals like Tap Roots Plumbing & Heating, you can rest assured that the job will be done right the first time. Give us a call at 604-222-1282 to discuss your plumbing issues.
