If you’re looking for a team of professionals who knows what they’re doing, then you don’t need to look any further than us. We understand drain cleaning in Richmond, TX and we can make the entire process easy for you. 

Today, we’re going to take a little time to run through everything you should know about drain cleaning. Drain cleaning is important to make sure that your home is hygienic, efficient, and smells good. Let’s get into the important facts you should know. 

Drain Cleaning 101

Here are a few key facts that you should know about drain cleaning and your home.

Chemical Drain Cleaners Are a No Go

The first thing we want to let you know is that your answer to any plumbing-related problem is never going to be a chemical drain cleaner. Trust us, we understand the temptation. You notice that your drains are moving a little slow and the scent they’re giving off isn’t the best, but you’re not sure if it’s to the point where you should grab that chemical drain cleaner off the shelf and make your way up to the checkout. It seems promising. The label tells you that it can eat away at a clog in no time and leave you without problems. 

While chemical drain cleaners might solve the issue for a short time it can lead to bigger issues and cause more expensive repair in the end. Chemical drain cleaners are designed to dissolve the clog but grease & grime may simply just move around in the pipe. They can also eat away at the lining of your drain pipe, which can lead to premature replacement of pipes. 

Hydro Jetting Helps Us All

Hydro-jetting is the use of highly pressurized water to get the grime out of your home’s pipes. The best thing about hydro-jetting is that it is low impact but highly effective. Although the technology is fantastic, it’s something you need to make sure our professionals take care of. We’re the ones who can make certain that investing in this type of work is worthwhile. 

Video Pipe Inspections Cut Through the Mess

If you want to make sure that the drain cleaning you receive is highly effective and as fast and precise as possible, then we suggest a video pipe inspection. Video pipe inspections are great because they allow our professionals to look directly into your pipes and see what’s going on. This eliminates any potential time wasted and helps you get relief faster.

There Are Signs You Should Note

Make sure that you note these signs:

  • Slow-moving drains
  • Gurgling sounds

  • Multiple clogged drains throughout your home
