It’s important for business owners to be proactive to prevent plumbing problems in their commercial buildings. While your plumbing system may not be at the top of your priority list, it’s crucial to call emergency services as soon as an issue arises, such as a clogged drain. Continue reading to learn about three common commercial drain cleaning services your business can benefit from.
Drain snaking is a very common drain cleaning service and is one of the simplest methods of clearing a clogged drain. It is typically the first method a plumber will use to clear the blockage, and uses a drain snake or drain auger. Plumbers have drain snakes that will reach deep into the sewer pipes and remove the clog, but a different method may be required.
If snaking the drain doesn’t work, the plumber may move on to a video inspection of the pipes to determine the location of the clog. This allows the plumber to have a better idea of the best way to clear the blockage. Businesses in the food industry should have their pipes cleaned on a regular schedule, as fat, grease, and food waste can quickly cause blockages.
Hydro jetting is the most aggressive method for drain cleaning, as it uses a strong stream of water to clear the most stubborn clogs. While hydro jetting is often very effective, a disadvantage is that the method can damage old or weak pipes, causing damage to your commercial drain system. This is why video inspection is an important step, as the plumbing technician can inspect your pipes to know if hydro jetting will be useful or not.
