Drain Cleaning Tacoma


Did you know that there are houses in the greater Tacoma area that still have cement and clay used for their sewer drain pipes? Roots from trees and near by bushes can actually invade these older types of plumbing and force their way inside to where all the nutrients are. While this might be great food for the plant, this is actually horrible for your plumbing, and very soon there after, you might be faced with a Drain Cleaning emergency.  After the roots enter the plumbing pipe, they begin to spider web out from the entry point, in search for more food. But in doing so, they can start a blockage. After they pile up more and more debris around themselves; this simple root can actually completely clog up your drain.

But before you rush off to the nearest tool rental place, or sit down in front of your computer to become a five minute pro at Drain Cleaning, consider some of the consequences.

Clogged Drains Tacoma

It is a cable like tool with the possibility of snapping back and causing cuts, bruises or even worse. Not to mention the damage that the snake is able to do to the plumbing itself. This doesn’t even take into consideration the fact that the rooter snake that you rent is more than likely not the highest quality piece of equipment and might not even be in the best of repair.

Sometimes a desperate home owner will run to the nearest hardware store and pick themselves up some chemical drain cleaner. After dumping it down the drain with a little water for good luck, they wait for the harsh chemicals to eat its way through the clog, not even giving second thought to what all those chemicals are doing to their plumbing pipes. This five minute fix can actually end up costing you thousands in the long run.

Harsh chemicals can actually do more damage to your plumbing pipes than the clog in the drain. And this can lead to you having to replace pipes that aside from the clog, had nothing wrong with them.
