The holidays are notorious for being stressful on your mind and body, but all that delicious food is pretty tough on your drain pipes as well. It is, hopefully, unlikely that that you are pouring ounces of pan drippings from the Christmas roast down your drain, but some of that fat still gets down there. Washing all the dishes from the holidays in your sink has been hard on your drain pipes. So now that the new year has begun and you’ve probably already abandoned New Year’s resolutions, why not do something for your drains that can have a lasting effect all year long?
Hydro-jetting is, without a doubt, the best way to clean your drains. A drain snake may break up clogs, but it doesn’t clean those pipes very well. Liquid drain cleaners run a big risk of actually damaging your pipes and should be avoided. However, hydro-jetting can not only break up clogs, but they can actually clean the inside of your pipes so you run a much lower risk of clogs reforming in the near future.
What a hydro-jet does is it uses high water pressure sprayed out forward and to the sides to break up anything in its path and stuck to the walls of your pipes. Conversely, if you were using a drain snake, it would auger through the blockage in front of it, but it would not clean the walls. Anything cleaned from your pipes would be purely coincidental instead of purposeful. As hydro-jetting removes and wears down anything on the pipe walls, it makes it difficult for new potential clogs to catch again.
