The drainage is an important part of the house’s plumbing system as it helps transport used water out of the house. However, this useful part of the drainage system can be exposed to problems as well, and there will be a necessity for drain cleaning in Aurora and other parts of the Greater Toronto Area.
“Your household drain lines have attached air vents to allow for the best drainage of toilets and sinks. These vent stacks are located on your roof, so they can become clogged with leaves, bugs, bird nests and other debris. Here are some tips on clearing these vent stacks and keeping them clear.
You may have a vent that serves more than one drain. This is common. For example, you may have all of your bathroom fixtures on one vent.
Since the easiest way to clear these is to get up on your roof to do so, plan ahead. Always take extra precautions when you need to work up on your roof. A plumber’s snake is a super tool for clearing a vent stack. Carefully feed it down into the line, and work it back and forth to clear it out. This usually will take care of most clogs.”
Homeowners must also remember that the air vents aren’t the only components of the toilet at risk, as there are other possible sources of clogged drainage systems. Heavy rains and storms can have an adverse effect on drainage systems as these will bring leaves and other debris to the drain lines.
Incorrect pipe installation can also affect its efficacy, as well as other items that end up clogging the drain. If left unaddressed, these things can and make the problem much worse for the inhabitants of the house.
If the home’s drainage system does clog, it is important to call Aurora drain cleaning services to help set the drainage system straight. Servicemen like those who work for Harris Plumbing have the experience, knowledge, and tools necessary to make the drain cleaning job as quick and effective as possible.
A clean drainage line means an efficient plumbing system, which translates to a comfortable life at home. Households who feel that their drains aren’t working at full capacity should call a professional plumber for help.
