Drain Repair

Sometimes our drains can begin to back up, and we have to pay expensive fees to repair them. The damage caused by a drain backup can be significant if left untreated. Using chemical home remedies can either be ineffective or harmful to your health and plumbing. The best option is to opt for preventative drain cleaning services to help prevent issues in the future, which can save you money in the long run.

Potential Risks

If your drain begins to back up or omit a foul odor, it can start to damage your pipes. Hiring a repair company that doesn’t have an excellent reputation, certifications, or proper training and experience can lead to additional problems or a recurrence of the same problem if the pipes aren’t properly cleaned and repaired. The most severe issues in your plumbing can lead to expensive repairs and headaches that could have been avoided with regular cleaning, inspection, and maintenance of your plumbing.

What Causes Blocked Drains?

Knowing what can cause harmful clogging in your drains can help save you time and money by avoiding specific materials from going down your pipes. The most common causes of drain blockage include:

  • Hair and soap scum buildup. Invest in a drain guard for all of your drains to help catch potential hazards, including hair and excess soap. Cleaning your drain guards frequently will help avoid an accumulation of the items that can obstruct your drains.
  • Dirt. Mud can be damaging to your pipes, so it is best to shake off any excess materials from your body and clothing prior to washing them.
  • Food and oils. You can start your own composting system to help benefit your pipes and the environment by reducing food waste from going down your drains. Compost can be used to feed plants, so you could start a home garden. Oil should be blotted off from any food you are tossing, or gathered into a receptacle and thrown away rather than poured down the drain. Garbage disposals are meant to catch small food particles, not for tossing everything into your kitchen sink.
  • Coffee grounds. These can be used as mulch for your plants or thrown into the garbage.

Drainage Cleaning & Unclogging

When it comes to household maintenance, keeping drains clean and unclogged is something that can often be overlooked—until it’s too late. Improper maintenance can lead to clogged, dirty drains that you might not notice until the drains start backing up with water, leading to a foul, rotten smell. Not only are backed up drains unpleasant, but the water back up itself can also lead to bacteria growth and germs as various types of waste become trapped. This can increase the chances of waterborne diseases or other health hazards. One way to ensure this doesn’t happen is by keeping the drains in your home clean on a consistent basis, and $25 Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help you make this a reality.

Why You Should Avoid Store-bought Drain Cleaners

The alarm goes off. Time for a nice, refreshing shower before work! You turn on the water – no issues, your water pressure is fine. However, before you can finish cleaning your body, lathering & rinsing your hair, and singing your rendition of your favorite song – you notice it. Again.

Your shower is becoming a bath. You’re standing in inches of water and the drain, while making the occasional glug, isn’t doing its job.

Most homeowners – including your dad, as it turns out – would recommend you hit the store and grab some Drain-o-tron Super-Clean liquid and send that burning down your pipes. Job well done, right?

Wrong. Chemical drain cleaners are kind of a big problem. Please review some of the problems we identify about the drain cleaners from the store:

Why Chemical Drain Cleaners are a Problem

Drain cleaners are sketchy for your health

Drain cleaners are made entirely from synthetic chemicals. These chemicals are powerful because their purpose is to break down and fully dissolve the debris inside of your drain that is stopping it up. Let’s think about that: what would a chemical compound need to be made from in order to completely break down the various materials inside of your drain? Is that the kind of chemical compound you want to make contact with on your skin, or in the air you breathe?

The dermal absorption or inhalation of these chemicals is dangerous for you because they are

Drain cleaners are chock full of powerful chemicals that work by literally dissolving away the hair and grime that’s slowing your drain’s function. Like bleach on steroids, drain cleaning chemicals leave behind vapors long after use which stick around and can harm you and your family.

Drain cleaners poorly affect your pipes

Let’s go back to the chemistry lesson. Your drain cleaner can tear through hair, coagulated hygiene products, and whatever other debris is lurking in your drain. It’s corrosive. This means that over time, your drain cleaner could also corrode your pipes. It’s a problem. Many drain cleaners are made with hydrochloric acid and other chemicals that can degrade the condition of your pipes and cause damage to the surfaces of your bathtub, sink, or other drain surroundings.

Drain cleaners just don’t work that well 

You just want a trustworthy and functional drain. So, you’re willing to face the problems listed above to get the results you want, right? Listen, before you make that choice, please know this: the drain cleaners you’re buying at the store don’t work that well. Here’s why: If you’ve got a superficial clog resulting from your long, flowing locks or lost bits of bar soap, fine. Your drain cleaner will tear through your clog and you’ll be back in business – assuming you’re okay with the problems listed above. But, what if your draining problems aren’t coming from a clog?

Your sewer line might be broken. You might have a caving pipe. How would you know? If you pour your drain cleaner into an issue like this, it may still resolve the issue temporarily. However, you’re really just applying a very unreliable fix to a problem that is probably getting worse.

There’s good news, here. We can fix your drain problems without poisoning you with chemicals. Professional drain cleaning is safe for your health and the health of your family. With us, you can also be sure that your actual drain problems are diagnosed and tended to – instead of masked with chemicals.
