Chances are, you clean your floors, your kitchen, your dishes, and bathroom. You probably actually clean a number of things in and around your home on a daily or weekly basis. One thing that many people forget to clean is their drains.
Drain cleaning isn’t just about making sure your plumbing is in pristine condition, it is about ridding your pipes of dangerous contaminants as well as any debris that could be slowing your water pressure. The best way to ensure your plumbing stays in top working condition is to maintain it with occasional hydro jetting.
What Is Hydrojetting & Why Choose It
Hydrojetting is a process that uses high levels of pressure and a steady stream of water to blast away any debris or blockages in your pipes. This process is safe for the environment, your pipes, and of course your family.
Unlike store-bought chemical cleaners, hydro jetting won’t burn your skin or eyes and will protect the integrity of your plumbing. Store-bought drain cleaners are typically lye-based.
Although lye has been used for years in soaps and detergents, the amount found in these cleaners can ruin PVC pipes due to the thermal reaction that occurs. Periodic pipe and drain cleaning are important to prevent illness from spreading.
Because the insides of your plumbing and pipes are almost always moist, it can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. While snaking a clog might remove the physical clog, hydro jetting will blast away any bacterial growth like E. Coli and Legionella.
Money Well Spent
Hydro jetting services aren’t going to be the cheapest option but are by far the safest and healthiest. The average cost of hydro jetting depends on the severity of the clog and the types of drains that need to be cleaned.
If this service is seen as a regular part of the maintenance of your home, the cost will be lower than an emergency treatment for a major blockage.
You might expect to spend anywhere from $150-500, but the lower end of that cost is far more likely on well-maintained pipes. Also take into consideration that although the cost of services may seem higher, clean pipes will allow for optimal water drainage and little chance of overflow. With completely clean pipes, there is no biofilm or physical barriers for other potential problems to cling to.
