When you think of cleaning your home, we’re willing to bet that you don’t think of cleaning your drains.

However, maintaining clean, clear drains in your home is vitally important if you hope to get the most from your drain and sewer system.

Instead, dial our number to schedule professional drain cleaning in Northern New Jersey. With Mark Lindsay and Son Plumbing & Heating Inc on the job, you can count on exceptional drain cleaning services. This will benefit you in a few different ways.

When Should I Schedule Sink or Shower Drain Cleaning?

You may think that spotting a clogged drain will be pretty straightforward. While a completely clogged drain may not be difficult to spot, though, it is really in your best interest to unclog a drain before a total blockage occurs. Here are a few signs to help you realize that it’s time schedule drain cleaning.

  • Standing water in bathtub/sinks
  • Foul odor coming from drains
  • Gurgling or hissing sounds during draining
  • Water draining slower than usual
  • Water coming up from other drains during drainage

The foul odor mentioned above may be the result of a clog in your drain, and the gurgling or hissing sounds can occur as water is forced down past a clog, forcing air up the drain. Don’t let drain clogs get out of hand, potentially disrupting pressure levels within your drainage system. Schedule professional drain cleaning when yours start slowing down.

Hydro–Jetting, Drain Openers, and More

When the time comes to unclog drains, many homeowners simply run out to buy the chemical cleaners that we all see ads for on television. We urge you to reconsider, though, as these chemical cleaners seldom remove clogs completely. Instead, they’ll typically clear just enough of the clog in order to let the remainder of the cleaner through, giving the illusion of an unclogged drain, while leaving behind enough of the clog for it to build back up before long.

We use a few different methods in unclogging drains, and with much better results than you could hope for by doing the job yourself. We will use drain openers when appropriate, but we also have the advantage of knowing when they are beneficial, and when to use other methods. We also offer hydro–jetting services, in which highly pressurized water is used to blast away clogs and to scour the interior surfaces of pipes. Call us for effective sink drain cleaning.

Benefits of Unclogging Your Drains

When you have clean, clear drains in your plumbing system, you won’t have to worry about issues of hygiene, such as standing around in dirty shower water as the tub drains. You also won’t see those dirt rings appearing in your basins as frequently as you would with standing water. Plus, the risk of backups into your home is greatly reduced.

There are a few ways in which you can help to avoid clogged drains in your home. Remember to:

  • Use drain screens when doing dishes
  • Clean whiskers out of the sink, rather than rinsing them down
  • Put only appropriate materials down your garbage disposal
  • Remove hair from the drain after showering
  • Schedule professional drain cleaning at the first sign of trouble

We look forward to helping you enjoy a great performance from the drains in your home!
