What is Drain Cleaning Good For?

Drain cleaning is vital to keep your home’s plumbing in good working order. However, drains can become clogged with materials, including hair, soap scum, and grease over time. When this happens, it can cause all sorts of problems, including slow drains and bad smells.

Drain cleaning removes all this built-up material, leaving your drains clean and clear. Doing this regularly is essential, especially if you have many people using your drains (like in a busy household). Drain cleaning can be done in several ways, including with chemicals, manual augers, or hydro-jetting.

Chemical drain cleaners are the most common and typically the easiest to use. They’re also the most affordable option. However, they are harsh on your pipes and may not be effective on all types of clogs. Manual augers are an excellent option for more challenging clogs, but they can be tricky and require a bit of elbow grease. Hydro-jetting is the most effective way to clean drains.

No matter which method you choose, drain cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home’s plumbing. It’s best to do it regularly to prevent problems down the road.

What Causes Drain Clogs?

Several things can cause drain blockage. The most common cause is accumulating organic or inorganic materials within your drain. Examples of such materials include:

  • Hair
  • Grease
  • Dirt
  • Soap

As these materials accumulate, they’ll impede the free flow of sewage, leading to a slow-moving drain. Ignoring the problem means the clog will worsen until the drain is completely sealed, leading to backed-up sewage and septic system problems.

Prime Reviews

“Nothing but good words to say about the team at Prime Plumbing. I had a severe leak in my kitchen. Previous contractor did not install my new sink and garbage disposal correctly. I called Prime, they sent Ryan (just excellent) and he clearly explained what the problem was and provided several solutions. I agreed to the terms and Ryan did a bang up job with the repair and clean up. I will definitely call Prime for my plumbing needs.”

“The service we received was beyond our highest expectations. We made a last-minute call expecting to have a technician arrive the next day, but we’re lucky enough to have a technician in the area. He was appropriately covered for COVID-19, extremely personable, professional and very knowledgeable about our make of jacuzzi tub. We received a prompt diagnosis and on the spot repair with minimal interruption of our household.”
