Vineland Drain Cleaning
Minimizing Damage & Maximizing Results in South Jersey
Thanks to hair, grease, food, soap, and the like, most people have experienced their fair share of slow or clogged drains. Attempting to DIY when it comes to cleaning or unclogging drains can do more harm than good, however. The harsh chemicals in many commercially available liquid drain cleaners are at best ineffective and at worst incredibly dangerous, with the potential to hurt you and your family, not to mention your pipes, sinks, and countertops. The experienced plumbers at Ben’s ProServ offer expert drain cleaning in Vineland and beyond to help you avoid damage to pipes and other plumbing fixtures while getting ahead of future plumbing problems.
Causes of Clogged Drains
While there are preventative steps you can take and signs you can look out for that indicate you need a drain cleaning, you may be uncertain of the cause behind the problem? In order to determine the nature and reasoning for the clog, it’s best to bring in a professional plumber. Our team of Vineland drain cleaning experts will be able to evaluate your plumbing system to determine the source of the clog.
What Clogs Drains the Most?
- Hair that has fallen down the shower or sink drain
- Build-up of soap scum
- Food waste that has been thrown down the garbage disposal, such as grease, eggshells, coffee grounds, pasta, etc.
- Dirt and other debris, such as sand
- Non flushable items tossed down the toilet, such as cotton swabs, tissues, feminine products, and diapers
- Tree roots
- Accumulation of minerals from hard water
- Excessive amounts of toilet paper
How to Prevent Drains From Clogging
Regular drain cleaning and maintenance can go a long way toward preventing plumbing emergencies. We recommend flushing kitchen sinks and bathtub / shower drains weekly with very hot or boiling water to help dissolve debris. Common household substances in combination with hot water such as dishwashing detergent or vinegar and baking soda can also be very effective for normal upkeep. Proactive professional drain cleanings from time to time are an excellent idea.
