Use pipe insulation to prevent sprayer snarls
If you have to jiggle the hose as you pull out your kitchen sink sprayer, chances are the hose is catching on the shutoff valves. For smooth operation, slip 1/2-in. foam pipe insulation over the pipes and shutoff handles. Tape it if it won’t stay put. Get the insulation at home centers for about $3
Wrap pipes in adhesive-backed felt
Running hot water can cause copper pipes to expand and grind against pipe hangers and joists. So pick up some adhesive-backed felt at the hardware store and cut it into strips. Then remove each hanger and wrap the pipe before refastening the hanger
Use a shop vacuum to remove hard objects
When a hard object like a toothbrush, comb or toy plugs a toilet or drain, a plunger may not be the solution—it might only push the obstruction in deeper. Instead, suck out the water and the obstruction with a wet/dry shop vacuum
What are the benefits of effective drain cleaning?
Removal of bacteria: Standing water in a clogged drain is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Aside from the health issues, bacteria can produce unpleasant odors from your drains and make your home smell unsanitary. Professional drain cleaning can eliminate these issues.
Fewer drain problems: Blockages can develop over time. There is likely debris accumulating in the pipes right now. During professional drain cleaning our team is able to spot any problems that can cause issues down the road. We can even identify problems farther in the sewer line, such as tree roots infiltrating the system.
Natural solutions are safe on pipes: Our drain cleaning services do not use harmful chemicals that can speed up the deterioration of your pipes. You will only receive safe, efficient solutions that work, such as snaking or hydro jetting.
