Unsure of how to relieve clogs drains if you can’t use these solutions? Read on for 4 things you should know about professional Bergen County drain cleaning.
1. THE PROFESSIONAL ROUTE IS THE BEST WAY TO GO
Clogged drains can be relieved with professional drain cleaning services. What’s more, is they should be relieved by a professional, not with damaging store-bought liquid drain cleaners. Do you know how those store bought solutions work? The ingredients in them do eat through what’s clogging your drain, but they do so by using caustic chemicals which are toxic to you and bad for your drain pipes.

2. PROFESSIONAL DRAIN CLEANING LIQUIDS ARE LESS HARMFUL
We offer BioSmart drain treatment. It is a liquid drain cleaner, essentially. However, it clears your drain pipes without toxic chemicals that can harm your pipes and pollute the environment. It contains special enzymes and bacteria, which break down and digest clots of grease and organic waste that can cling to the inside of your plumbing system. Any residue that’s left behind will be flushed away and safely managed by the septic system.
3. THERE ARE MULTIPLE EFFECTIVE DRAIN CLEANING METHODS
We urge you to consider the use of BioSmart drain treatment over the solution you may have purchased from the hardware store. But sometimes a stubborn clog needs more than that. This is where drain snaking or hydro-jetting comes in. Drain snaking involved the use of an auger on a long cord to drill through whatever is clogging the drain, allowing water to flow freely through the pipe again.
Hydro-jetting scours waste and other items that can be clogging up your drains, leaving your plumbing in the condition it was in before it developed clogs.
4. THERE ARE MANY CAUSES OF DRAIN CLOGS
Some are not always within your control. For instance, you might have a tree root in the backyard infiltrate your sewer system through a tiny leak. Not only is this a huge inconvenience to your landscaping and your home, but it almost always requires a sewer line replacement.
Other drain clogs though, are pretty preventable. For instance, your kitchen sink is prone to clogging issues from the wrong items being put down the garbage disposal. This includes FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) and fibrous food products such as celery stalks and corn husks.
