A clogged drain can lead to a series of complications that affect your living space's comfort, hygiene, and even safety.

Harmful Effects of Chemical Drain Cleaners

Many homeowners reach for liquid chemical drain cleaners at the first hint of a clog. However, these strong chemical solutions often do more harm than good when it comes to your plumbing. Chemical drain cleaners can be highly corrosive, posing a risk to the integrity of plumbing systems. Their harsh formulas can damage PVC pipes, cause older metal pipes to corrode, and may lead to leaks or pipe failures.

Regular use of such chemicals for clearing blockages can also harm household members, with the potential to cause chemical burns or respiratory irritation. They can disrupt wastewater treatment processes and harm the bacteria that break down sewage. Handling and storing these substances thus requires caution to avoid accidental injuries or long-term health issues.

Rather than risk your pipes and health with toxic chemicals, call us for safe drain cleaning solutions that remove clogs fully while leaving pipes intact. 

Our Drain Cleaning Techniques

We utilize the latest methods and equipment to clear clogs without damaging your plumbing. Our technicians strategically select the best approaches based on the nature of your blockage. 

Common techniques we use include:

  • Plunging generates pressure and suction, effectively dislodging simple blockages and often serving as the initial step in drain cleaning.
  • Drain snaking involves a flexible metal cable that threads into the drain to mechanically break up and extract clogs, sparing the pipes from chemical harm.
  • Hydro jetting utilizes high-pressure water streams to eradicate buildup and debris from the pipe's interior, ensuring a comprehensive cleaning.
  • Enzymatic cleaners use natural enzymes and beneficial bacteria to safely decompose organic pipe material, offering an eco-friendly cleaning alternative.
  • Video pipe inspection provides a precise internal view of the plumbing using video technology, allowing for accurate identification and localized treatment of blockages.
  • Rooter service uses powerful cutting tools to slice through invasive tree roots and hardened deposits, effectively clearing major obstructions from the pipes.

DIY methods can be a temporary fix but may overlook the underlying issues causing the blockages, leading to repeated clogs and potential system failure. Our methods are safe, effective, and environmentally responsible to clear drains and prevent pipe damage, so you don't have to turn to harsh chemical cleaners.

Tips to Prevent Clogs

Maintaining free-flowing drains is essential for the smooth operation of any plumbing system. 

Some preventative tips to help avoid the inconvenience and potential damage of clogged drains include:

  • Avoid disposing of grease, coffee grounds, and food scraps in your sink
  • Install strainers in sinks and showers to catch hair and debris
  • Flush drains with hot water regularly to help prevent buildup
  • Clean drains with a vinegar and baking soda mixture monthly
  • Refrain from using chemical drain cleaners that can corrode pipes
  • Educate household members about what shouldn't go down the drains
  • Schedule annual professional plumbing inspections for maintenance

Following these best practices minimizes the risk of obstruction. However, if a stubborn clog occurs, call American Rooter Services for a thorough drain cleaning to prevent future blockages and damage.
