Keeping your drains clear of debris helps promote its health and integrity. These clogs and debris can restrict water flow, but could also cause damage to the drain. Unfortunately, debris collections happen inevitably. To help combat these complications, Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services offers the quick and effective hydro jetting to the Arlington Heights area.
What Is Hydro Jetting, & How Can It Safely Clean The Drain Lines In Arlington Heights Homes?
OInstead of relying on chemical cleaners, hydro jetting just uses pressurized water. Chemical cleaners can contain hazardous components like sodium hydroxide and lye. If these were to come in contact with food, they could have serious health outcomes. Additionally, chemicals could cause damage to the drain and pipe, especially if it already has eroded areas. They may not remove all of the clog as well, which leaves it to collect debris and grow again.
In comparison, hydro jetting is environmentally safe and the technician takes precautions to make sure the drain can handle the water pressure. They perform a drain inspection before they begin the cleaning process. This helps the technician identify the blockage, as well as its density and length. The inspection also shows if the drain is strong enough to handle the pressure of the hydro jetting.
If the drain meets the standards, then the technician can proceed. A hose with a specific nozzle will be inserted into the drain, just below the clog. The surface of the nozzle is covered in small holes to allow the water to exit in different angles. This helps to remove the clog because the water is not limited to one direction.
The hose is attached to a portable tank that keeps water pressurized as 4000 pounds per square inch (PSI). The power of the pressure allows the water to blast through dense clogs and break it into small particles that can be safely washed away. It’s also capable of scraping away mineral deposits that are stuck to the drain’s walls.
The Benefits Of Feltner’s Sewer & Drain Hydro Jetting Cleaning Services
While beneficial for formed clogs and blockages, hydro jetting is also useful as regular drain maintenance. With the included inspection, additional problems can be identified before they start to manifest with serious symptoms. But the hydro jetting can also remove any forming blockages before they become serious, which can save you both time and money.
Having it done professionally also has benefits, as snaking the drain without professional help may only exacerbate the problem by pushing the clog down further. These clogs can get up to three feet in length, and if they are accidentally pushed farther down, they could become more difficult to remove. It’s also possible that the snake will only partially remove it, leaving you to continuous deal with it as clog rebuilds.
