Drain Cleaning Expert Removes Clogs In Chula Vista 

Clogs in household drains are an inconvenience that many people attempt to resolve with the quick fix of pouring drain-clearing liquids and hoping for the best! However, this approach can be dangerous and corrosive. While the clog may resolve, it often reappears, creating a negative spiral of repeated use without addressing the underlying issue.

The inconvenience of clogged drains is unpleasant and disruptive. It can keep you up at night. While some clogs do resolve on their own with some patience, others are persistent and will not clear without professional intervention. 

Household drain-clearing liquids should not be used at all, as their mere presence in a household, especially with small children, poses a safety hazard. 

Drain snaking, while effective in removing certain clogs, should not be attempted by amateurs. Using a snake incorrectly with an inappropriate size or amount of force can severely damage pipes, which can be quite costly to repair or replace.

How A Plumber Removes Stubborn Clogs

It is best to call a licensed professional plumber to remove clogs unless you are one yourself. The technician will arrive to first inspect your property before commencing any work. Beyond preliminary assessments, plumbers are equipped with video camera technology that aids in the thorough examination of pipes to locate the specific location.

Hydrojetting plumbing services offer an environmentally friendly solution that uses the power of high-pressure water to blast away clogs and cleanly remove debris from pipes. Hydrojetting effectively removes stubborn clogs, even tree branches, without the use of chemicals. 

For pipes that are too old or fragile to withstand the power of hydrojetting, a plumber will use a snake or auger to gently break through the obstruction. 

When To Call A Plumber

If your toilet clogs multiple times a week or has a clog and doesn’t respond to a plunger, this is a red flag situation. Multiple appliances or fixtures becoming clogged at the same time is another red flag. These issues almost always indicate a serious clog.

Thinking about all the things we flush and wash down our drains can be dizzying but it is important nonetheless to be aware of the potential causes of buildup.  In the kitchen, grease, oil, food particles, sauces, coffee grounds, spices, and even dishwashing detergent can build into clogs. The reality of detergents clogging sinks is ironic, but you can avoid the predicament by choosing low-residue, low-sudsing formulas without thickening agents. Many brands now offer biodegradable formulas that use the power of natural enzymes rather than foaming agents to achieve a clean wash with minimal drain buildup.

In the bathroom, a myriad of items, including dental floss, diaper wipes, makeup wipes, q-tips, cotton balls, soap scum, thick conditioners, facial masks, microbeads, toothpaste, and feminine hygiene products, can lead to clogs.

These are unfortunately not an exhaustive compilation and what can cause clogs. There are a plethora of substances and products involved in keeping a household up and running. A resistant clog is like gridlock traffic; it is frustrating and it leads to nowhere!
