When your drains develop a stubborn clog and require cleaning, it’s tempting to buy an over-the-counter chemical drain cleaner or a drain snake from the local hardware store. In many instances, this won’t provide a long-term solution, and may even harm your drains. Our professional Denver plumbers and drain cleaners can handle clogs far more effectively, safer for your plumbing system, and with greater long-term results than over-the-counter solutions.
This success comes from professional tools, the training and experience they’ve earned, and the ability to treat the specific clog with a tailored solution. Professionals use tools that are of higher quality than the average homeowner can pick up for themselves.
Here’s a quick look at three of the most common tools a professional drain cleaner uses, and why they are selected to solve specific issues.
Video cameras are now smaller than your fingernail, which allows drain cleaners to send them down the pipes on a cable and get an unprecedented look at the exact nature of the clog.
This is a length of hose fitted over the affected drain, which fires powerful pulses of water down the pipe to break the clog up. The process is effective, and yet also natural and environmentally friendly.
Hardware store snakes are reasonably inexpensive, but they tend to apply the same solution to every clog. Mechanical snakes employed by professionals not only use much more power to the clog, but they often have rotating heads, allowing the drain cleaner to fit the specific head to the specific nature of the clog. It makes for a much more thorough drain-cleaning operation.
