Drain Maintenance Can Help Prevent Future Clogs

If there’s one essential thing in your home that you might not pay a lot of attention to, it’s probably your drains.

Most of the time, this isn’t a problem. You turn the water on, it flows down the drain and disappears. But what happens when one of your drains gets clogged?

What Can Clog Your Drains?

Everyday items that are routinely in and around your sinks, showers and toilets can cause annoying blockages in your drains. These include:

  • Hair
  • Soap scum
  • Food
  • Grease
  • Toys
  • Paper
  • Tree roots

You might say, but I don’t put any of those things in my drains. Most of us don’t, of course, but the truth is things like hair, grease and tree roots can build up in drains over time, eventually causing a serious obstruction.

So, how do you deal with a clogged drain, or better yet, prevent your drains from becoming blocked in the first place? With drain treatment and maintenance solutions by Feehan Plumbing, Heating and Cooling.

Drain Treatment and Maintenance Solutions

  • Treatment: Before deciding on the best method to treat your problem, a diagnostic test using state-of-the-art video technology is conducted to determine the cause of your blockage. Several options are available to effectively remove all types of clogs. Whether your issue requires the use of an electric or hand-powered snake, a power rooter, an industrial-grade solvent or enzyme/bacteria product, or a high powered water jet, Feehan Plumbing, Heating and Cooling has the tools and expertise to clear your clogged drain quickly and easily.
  • Maintenance: To keep your drains and pipes free and clear, it’s important to treat and clean your drains on a regular basis. This service can include biological agents that break down grease, paper and sludge as well as chemical products that prevent the growth of unwanted roots.
