Understanding The Different Drains And Why Consider Hiring Drainage Cleaning Services
Our drainage cleaning services are not only meant to be an answer to blocked drains; they are also necessary for the proper maintenance so that drain problems can be prevented. Drains are designed to channel waste that can be liquid, solid, or semi-solid. Most modern drain systems are easy to handle, however some drainage systems tend to require a more technical approach thus needing an expert’s touch.
Common Home Drainage Systems
The drainage system is a network of intricately connected conduits designed to direct waste into a central containment area. In your home, the system is made up of interlinked drains running from the bathroom, kitchen, and utility room, and all are expected to work correctly. Each is designed to handle a particular type of waste and faces a certain risk of blockage. As such, the delivery of effective drainage cleaning services involves a deep understanding of the various drains and the waste they handle.
The drains in the kitchen tend to handle greases, soaps, fats, and food particles that are often washed down the sink. The flow of waster will soon slow down to a point where the homeowner will opt to use a plunger or get a bit creative with baking soda and hot water to unclog the drain. But such an approach is only a temporary answer. Professional plumbers at Smith and Son Plumbing can exclusively provide lasting solutions.
The bathroom drains handle waster from the tubs, showers, toilet, and bathroom sink. It is possible to have a problem with the toilet drain because it is overwhelmed by items that should not be flushed down the toilet. A backed-up tab or shower drain is often an issue caused by hair and fibers that were washed down the drains.
Utility Room Drains
Here you will account for waste from the patios, laundry rooms, and garages; these areas tend to have unique drainage that includes floor drains. Given the nature of the waste that these drains handle, unclogging and cleaning them may not be done the same way as that of the bathroom or kitchen.
The outside drain is installed to help in the management of rainwater, to direct it to the central drainage system or away from the house to the yard. The gutters have downspouts that channel rainwater to drains, but the water may bring with it some debris that includes leaves and small twigs that can block the drain and cause a backup.
How To Tell You Have A Clogged Drainage System
We always work based on the philosophy – prevention is better than cure – and thus fashion our drainage cleaning services around this philosophy. We do give simple tips to our clients to help them maintain free-flowing drains and to know when they are blocked. Some of the noteworthy signs of clogging include:
- Water backing up and out of the sinks, toilet, shower, and bathtub drains
- Water flowing slowly down the drains
- Bubble forming when waste water flows down the sink or when you flush the toilet
- Hearing gurgling noises coming out from your drains
- A foul smell coming out of the sink drains
Drain cleaning is not just about unclogging your drainage system and getting rid of the foul odors, but also about helping maintain it so that it serves you for a long time. The use of DIY methods such as hot water and baking soda will only go so far before you ultimately need an expert’s touch.
