Drain clogs rank among the most common problems homeowners have to deal with here in Dumont, NJ. The go-to option is to purchase a chemical cleanser from the local grocery store or perhaps a snake from a hardware store. But these options adopt a one-size-fits-all approach, which rarely deal with the problem in an effective manner. They usually do just enough to open the clog, but leave residual material behind, causing the clog to reform again very quickly.
That’s why you need to call in professionals to handle any stubborn clogs in your system. Not only do they bring formal skills and experience to the problem, but proper equipment as well: equipment that is prohibitively expensive for homeowners who only have to deal with clogs infrequently, but invaluable for those who unclog drains for a living. Here’s a list of three of them to give you some idea of what we’re talking about.
1) HIGH END CHEMICALS
Most store-bought chemicals are very harsh on your pipes and can even lead to injury if you aren’t careful. Professionals, on the other hand, rely on products like BioSmart drain cleaners, which clean the pipes safely and don’t cause any lasting damage to the environment.
2) MECHANICAL SNAKES
Mechanical snakes bring a lot more power to the clog than store-bought snakes do. Furthermore, many of them use rotating heads which can be swapped out, ensuring that the head matches the unique nature of the clog. That helps ensure that the plumber gets the entire clog, instead of just punching a hole in it and leaving it at that.
3) VIDEO PIPE INSPECTION
Video cameras have gotten so small they can fit on your fingernail. That allows plumbers to lower them on a cable into the pipes themselves and get a close look at the nature of the clog. It provides unparalleled accuracy and allows the plumber to select the right tool for that particular clog.
