If our customers knew what their home’s drain system looks like after a year of heavy use, they’d be astonished. Material gathers in places throughout the drains, often far from sinks and toilets where it’s hard to reach but can still cause problems and increase the chance of other clogs. At bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of San Antonio, we help our customers in Helotes, TX keep their drains sparkling on the inside with whole house drain cleaning service, allowing them to focus on other aspects of life rather than dealing so much with slow sinks, toilet backups, and emergency plumbing calls. By removing the accumulated material stuck to pipe walls and forming clogs, the cascading causes of drain problems are eliminated and any further drain issues tend to be local and easy to fix with a simple, single fixture drain cleaning service call. Removing the deeper causes to drain issues also helps avoid recurring drain problems, where a toilet clog is actually a symptom of slower draining pipes due to obstructions in the walls or between floors. Our plumbing experts have extensive experience with the details and fine points of drain operation, such as the slight tilt that horizontal drain pipes need to have to drain properly, and they can approach your drain cleaning with a professional plumber’s mindset.
Video Inspection and Plumbing Experience are a Powerful Combination
Our skilled plumbers know the drain plumbing of houses like yours and can visualize how the wastewater flows from fixtures to piping, all the way down to your sewer line. It helps them to make effective drain cleaning visits, since they know what they’re dealing with and can evaluate your situation expertly. We now have technological tools for plumbing as well as experience, and we can visualize the insides of your pipes using tiny video camera equipment, checking the condition of the pipe material as well the causes of any flow problems such as clogs and objects lodged in your drain lines. Video imaging is a helpful part of our whole house drain cleaning service since we can see developing clogs and their content. This helps us plan our cleaning strategy accordingly. We can also provide you with information about the condition of your plumbing that may help you make decisions about future plumbing care. If your pipes are starting to wear due to corrosion, for example, you can plan for their replacement and avoid damage and disinfection expenses from drain pipe leaks. The same benefit is available for water line pipes and sewer lines, helping you to get an overall picture of the state of your home’s plumbing. As an informed homeowner, you can plan more rather than react, and relax more as well.
Cutting Through Pipe Obstructions with Auger and Snake
Reaching into your drain pipes with our auger, snake, and other tools helps break up clogs so they loosen and flow down your drain, and retrieve objects that are blocking your drains and can’t be easily broken up, like plastic toys. Our drain cleaning service, using video as well as these deep-reaching tools, can remove even a series of clogs forming along the way down your wastewater pipes, clogs that sometimes result in emergency plumbing calls where the first clog removal improves flow somewhat, but there’s another, and another, before the drain is fully cleared. With the whole house drain cleaning service, we perform a reset so any clogs you experience in the next year or so should be simpler to address and from basic causes such as classic toilet clogs or hair in your shower drain.
A Clean Sweep with Hydro Jet Power
There’s an extra benefit of a whole house drain cleaning service where we’re aiming for generally clean plumbing rather than a targeted resolution of a single sink or toilet problem. That’s our use of hydro jet pressurized spray to clear the insides of your pipes. While we might use it for stubborn individual clogs, in this case we’re using high-pressure water sprayed into your pipes to clear out remaining material after clog clearing that could form the basis of new clogs right away. We’re giving you a head start where your pipes don’t have the usual “gunk” lining the walls and gathering more over time, and that helps avoid deeper plumbing issues from redeveloping sooner than they should.
Drain Hygiene for Your Family’s Health
Before they form clogs, the waste materials going down your drains may gather not far from the drain entry, decaying if they’re organic material such as food, and forming a place where bacteria can grow. This can lead to unhealthy water in your sink, even from splashes as water enters the drain, along with odors and other concerns. If you experience sink backups, of course, unhealthy water is flowing up from your drain and into your sink, hopefully not further onto your floor. When we perform drain cleaning service, we know that it’s important to keep your drain hygienic from the top and down your pipe, and our service will reflect that. We may also make recommendations about what not to put down drains in order to limit the material that can host bacteria. Your family’s health, safety, and peace of mind are important to us, and we use our plumbing experience to improve the hygiene of the plumbing fixtures throughout your house.
