Drains are the pipes that carry the water and sewage you use daily out of your home into the city sewer system or septic tank. Plugged drains can create a mess that is smelly and dirty. The professional plumbers at Kurt Bohmer’s Plumbing are experts in clearing drains and getting your drain system working again. Kurt Bohmer’s Plumbing offers state-of-the-art drain cleaning equipment and specializes in high-pressure hydro jetting. We have sewer cameras that allow us to show our customers the exact problem they are dealing with.
We also use state-of-the-art sewer and drain cameras to inspect a pipe, ensuring there are no breaks in the line and no roots have grown into it. Electronic locators are used if an inspection shows a “belly” (low spot) in the pipe or to pinpoint any issues that may cause problems in the future. Fixing drains can be done affordably and effectively with the right tools on the job.
Common Causes of Drain Clogs
Most people are surprised by how icky and gross their drain lines become simply from what they put down their drain lines and toilets. Some of the more common household items that lead to clogged drains include the following:
While you cannot prevent some of these things from going down the drain, like hair and soap, you have complete control over most other things. For example, pouring hot grease down the drain, even when running hot water, does not entirely remove it.
As the grease cools, it congeals and sticks to the insides of the drain pipes. Over time, the more grease you pour down the drain, the bigger the blockage becomes. Eventually, the drain pipe becomes clogged, and you need our drain solutions to remove the grease.
In addition, any organic matter stuck inside the drain pipes will decay and begin to stink. So, it is also common to start smelling foul odors coming from your drains.
Don’t Drain Cleaners Remove Clogs and Clean Drain Pipes?
Most people turn to drain cleaners they pick up from the grocery store or hardware store to remove clogs or clean drain pipes. The problem with these products is they can do more harm than good.
For starters, the chemicals used in the products can be highly corrosive and toxic, damaging your drain lines. Next, they do not clean your drain pipes as they are not formulated to break down all types of materials that get stuck inside the drain pipes. Most importantly, they are not good for the environment and can contaminate reclaimed water supplies.
So, instead of using drain cleaners, if you cannot remove the clog yourself with a plunger, you can count on our drain cleaning solutions in San Fernando.
