Clogged drains can be hazardous to your health and the plumbing system of your house. This is why it’s important to schedule professional drain cleaning in Mesa, AZ at the first sign of a clog issue. At Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of Phoenix, we don’t recommend dealing with the clog yourself, as you may end up damaging your pipes or even injuring yourself. Here are some of the different methods we use for unclogging:
Drain Snaking or Drain Augering
Auger cleaners or snake cleaners typically come in two types - manual and motor-driven. These cleaners use a long cable that is strong, flexible, and thin enough to travel through the openings with ease. Drain snaking is ideal for getting rid of small clogs and clumps of hair and debris in your system.
In an air-burst cleaner, carbon dioxide, air, or other gas is used to dislodge the clogged drain. The unit is made of a built-in compressor and gas cartridges to initiate the flow of gas. The pressurized gas from the unit travels down and forces itself through stagnant water, unclogging the debris or other substances collected in the pipes.
Hydro jetting uses a high-pressure water stream that blasts through the pipes to break up the clogs. With pressure as high as 35,000 PSI, the water is pumped into the hose that is fitted with a nozzle and into the drain. Any debris collected inside the pipes is removed and all blockages are cleared instantly.
Hydro jetting is a gentle yet effective way to get rid of built up hair, soap scum, and other soft particles stuck. It’s also powerful enough to remove any roots inside your pipes. Since this method uses strong blasts of water, our drain cleaning company conducts an inspection beforehand to ensure that your pipes are stable enough for the procedure.
