When you encounter a drain in your home that needs to be cleaned, your first instinct may naturally be to go pick up some store-bought chemical drain cleaner and pour it down the drainpipe. These "drain cleaners" contain acidic mixtures that can actually do more harm than good to the interior of your pipes. They can also leave behind toxic residue and fumes.
Instead of using these potentially harmful chemicals, you should contact a skilled plumber to perform appropriate cleaning. One of the best drain cleaning methods that exists is hydro-jetting. This motorized drain cleaning technology blasts a stream of hot water at a very high pressure through a nozzle at the end of a line which is snaked down the drain. Essentially, the water jets scald the interior of the drainpipe, breaking through the most stubborn of clogs.
What Are the Benefits of Hydro-Jetting?
Rid Your Drain of Any Clog: Hydro-jetting provides a very intense force of water, which is enough to break apart even the thickest of clogs. Hydro-jetting is so effective that it can even remove obstructions that motorized drain snakes are unable to.
Safely Clean Your Pipes: There are other drain cleaning methods, such as using store-bought drain cleaner, that will actually do more harm to your pipes than good. Even a mechanical device such as a powered drain snake can do damage if not used appropriately. However, hydro-jetting will not damage the inside of your pipes.
Comprehensive: There are cleaning methods such as drain snakes that will take care of large clogs. While this is effective, a hydro-jetter cleans out the whole drainpipe, blasting way deposits along the walls. Plus, different types of nozzle attachments allow your professional plumber to access every part of the drainpipe to ensure that no spot escapes.
Long-Lasting: Hydro-jetting helps to prevent further problems from affecting your drain pipes. This high-pressure scalding action makes it more difficult for material to accumulate inside the pipes again.
