When your sink empties a bit slowly, do you feel anxiety rising up? When it takes two flushes to get a clean bowl, do you wonder if it’s time to do something about it? As a homeowner, do you wonder if you’ve got a minor clog or a major issue? At Peach Plumbing & Drain, we’re here to handle our Atlanta, GA clients’ plumbing emergencies, and to help them avoid the midnight madness, overflow cleanup, and health hazards that drain clog problems can produce. Our drain cleaning service is maintenance for a critical part of your home’s inner workings — the wastewater disposal plumbing.
Spring Cleaning for Your Drain Pipes?
Of course! Like every other part of your home, maintenance and cleaning help keep your plumbing working right and providing you with a healthy place to live. We love to make your life simpler and more enjoyable, so we recommend that you schedule our drain cleaning service on a regular basis.
Ways You Can Keep Your Pipes Flowing, and Information You Need About Their Condition
There are some things you can do to try and keep your pipes clean, but it’s important that you understand what type of pipes you have, what their condition is, and how your solution will affect your plumbing in general. Your drain cleaning service not only provides thorough pipe cleaning and maintenance, but we also inspect your plumbing externally and internally as needed to make sure you know if you have potential problems.
A Few Simple Tips to Help Keep Your Pipes Clear
Buy and install drain screens and plugs to prevent hair and objects from entering sink, shower, and tub drains. If you’re upgrading your toilets, ask about models that put more force in the flush without using more water. Avoid sending solid material and grease down your kitchen sink, since they can linger in the pipes and grease can gradually coat your plumbing causing future clogs. Use plenty of water whenever you’re pouring food items down the drain, especially when you’re using a garbage disposal. Run the water for a few seconds after you turn the disposal off to rinse it out.
Pipe Inspections Help Provide the Right Drain Cleaning Solutions
Technology makes a big difference in plumbing these days. Our drain cleaning service can use video inspection and other systems to identify the location and cause of clogs and leaks, and to determine pipe condition on the inside. Corrosion or pipe damage can increase the likelihood of accumulating material.
Avoiding the Costs and Hazards of Emergency Drain Problems
All it takes is a brief distraction to turn a clogged drain problem into an emergency that could lead to water damage and health hazards. When wastewater overflows from your toilet or sinks back up, we come quickly because we know that your expenses can be significant and your family’s health could be in danger. Our drain cleaning service is one of the ways that we help you to keep the costs of unexpected plumbing problems down, instead planning ahead with maintenance and repair on your own terms and schedule.
Deep Cleaning Reaches Important Pipes that are Far Out of Reach
When you think about drain problems, you probably consider the pipe leading down from your sink and the p-shaped trap below. What about the pipes you don’t see, including tub and shower plumbing in the floor and wastewater lines in the walls? Clogs happen in these places, too, and they can be difficult to find and reach with cleaning equipment. Certainly, they’re beyond your store-bought solutions. Our drain cleaning service has the technology to locate clogs, grease accumulation, and other problems in your hidden drains and main wastewater lines, and make sure that you don’t have future problems that affect your plumbing throughout your home, producing overflows and damage in multiple locations. Technologies like video inspection show the results of our hydro jetting and other effective cleaning techniques.
Don’t Forget Sinks and Drains in Your Basement
Make sure that your laundry drains, utility sinks, basement bathrooms and floor drains are all clear and in good shape to avoid backups and overflows that you might not even notice for a while. Our drain cleaning service can make sure that these drains which have less gravity working for them don’t have material building up over time, and especially dried clogs from disuse that could be difficult to remove. If any of your basement drains show signs of backing up, this can be one of the first indications of sewer problems that we can also check out and help you avoid bigger whole-house backup problems.
Cleaning and Inspecting Sewer and Septic Systems
Working on your Atlanta, GA area sewer or septic system is something you should be able to plan, not an emergency that disrupts your family’s life and budget. The way to look ahead at this important maintenance and repair item is to have a video inspection of your sewer or septic line and have our drain cleaning service break any clogs that are forming. If we observe damage to the pipe from tree roots, pressure from above, or earth shifting, or if we see that your older pipe is deteriorating, we can suggest a range of solutions that may help make repairs more affordable and less disruptive. Patching, relining, and other work that avoids digging up and replacing the entire pipe and working with the city sewer line or septic tank can save a lot.
