When a person is taking a shower and they notice that they’re standing ankle deep in water, that’s a sure sign that there’s a clog somewhere in their drain. If they use a drain cleaner from the local hardware store and it’s not any better, then there’s a good chance that the drain is clogged far from the surface. It might even affect other areas of the house. The homeowner might also notice a problem when they are washing the dishes. That’s when they know that it’s time to call a Drain Cleaning Boca Raton contractor.
A professional plumber has tools that go far beyond a snake and gel. He can begin with a small camera that can quickly locate the source of the problem. With this information, he can quickly figure out if it’s one obstruction causing all of the problems. He knows the best way to unclog the drain. If the drains are connected to a septic system, he understands which chemicals and procedures could affect the health of the system.
Drain Cleaning Boca Raton plumbers often use hydro-jetting equipment to deal with the most stubborn clogged drains. This specialized equipment consists of a hose and nozzle. The nozzle is designed to force through water at extremely high pressure. Usually it’s only a matter of minutes until the drain is running freely. The homeowner can relax knowing that they’ll be able to use their shower, toilet, and kitchen sink without facing a back up.
While it’s inconvenient for a homeowner to deal with a clogged drain, it can be devastating for a business that is open to the public. Businesses that serve food could even face closure. When a toilet backs up and overflows, it can result in some pretty nasty bacteria on the surrounding floor. If this happens in a restaurant, it can lead to bad odor and contamination. The liquid has to be cleaned up quickly and the area should be sanitized. Of course the area needs to be closed to the public until a plumber can arrive and deal with the clogged drain. Depending upon the city, a health inspector may have to verify the repair before the public can be served.
