Every property owner worries about discovering a costly and time-consuming maintenance issue such as a leaking or broken pipe. But at Gladiator Rooter & Plumbing, there’s an easy and affordable way to prevent drain problems, and we are happy to help with out drain cleaning services.
Many homeowners in the Piedmont area are unaware that scheduling annual drain cleaning service with a licensed plumber is the best way to keep their pipes in excellent condition. When it comes to the proper function of your sewer system, it’s always better to be proactive than to wait until something goes wrong. However, if you already have clogged drains on your hands, a thorough drain cleaning can remove any buildup or debris and get the water flowing correctly.
Most homeowners will eventually have to deal with the reality of clogged pipes, often forming when grease, hair, soap scum and other common household debris accumulates in the drain pipe and resulting in slow drains and even backups.
Removing a partial clog is always easier and less harmful on the pipes, so you should call Gladiator Rooter & Plumbing immediately if you have begun to notice the water from your sinks and showers draining slowly. A sewer drain that is completely blocked can cause serious problems on your property. When a sewer drain becomes fully clogged, it prevents the water and waste from flowing into the municipal sewer system. With nowhere else to go, the wastewater and sewage then backs up into your home, creating a health hazard in the form of toxic bacteria.
Though your first impulse might be to reach for a bottle of chemical drain cleaner, avoid it at all costs. Though they are marketed as an ideal solution for people struggling with clogged pipes, they are made of harmful chemicals that can actually cause more damage to your plumbing. Calling Gladiator Rooter & Plumbing to clean out your drains and resolve your clog is the best way possible way to ensure the long-term health of your pipes.
Sometimes, a simple plunging or pipe-snaking procedure works well for minor clogs. However, larger and more severe clogs call for the use of powerful, professional-grade plumbing tools. In these situations, we recommend a process called hydro jetting.
As the name implies, hydro jetting involves using a highly pressurized stream of hot water to break up the clog into smaller pieces and wash it away into the sewer. Even the toughest blockage, such as tree roots or rocks, is no match for a hydro jetting procedure. Hydro jetting is a highly versatile technique that is safe and effective for cleaning any size, type or material of pipes and drains.
The other major advantage of the hydro-jetting process is that it not only removes the obstruction at hand, but also eliminates any sludge and debris on the interior of the pipe that might eventually form into another clog.
At Gladiator Rooter & Plumbing, we can clean any drain safely and affordably, saving homeowners in Piedmont money in the long run.
