Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
The plumbing system in most homes is largely forgotten, but it’s all homeowners can think about if their drains become clogged. Dirty drains are filled with bacteria that can back up into the home along with dirty water, and the drain may become completely unusable if the problem is ignored. This is why Doug Turner Plumbing is proud to offer drain cleaning services for people throughout the Houston area. A trusted name since 1987, Doug Turner Plumbing has experts in drain cleaning, and they can help homeowners with almost any drain related problems, now including drain cleaning.
It’s best to use mechanical means to clear a clogged drain because chemicals can be both unpredictable and dangerous. Using the wrong chemicals on pipes can cause serious damage as it eats away at the copper or PVC piping. If the chemicals interact with something in the pipe, they can blow back into the fixture and burn skin if the homeowner is standing in the area. Fumes are another hazard posed by chemicals, even those that are readily available at the local hardware store. The most frustrating aspect of many chemical cleaners is that they are minimally effective at actually removing clogs. Snakes, balloons and other mechanical means are far more effective and safe. There’s no risk to the homeowner or the plumbing system, and customers can rest easy knowing that the blockage has been fully removed and the clog will not pose a problem again.
Some drain clogs are the result of hair or grease in the drain, but others arise from tree roots or broken pipes. When extensive repairs are required, it’s important to have the work done by licensed professionals who will provide high-quality work and finish the work as quickly as possible. Doug Turner Plumbing offers repair services to handle larger problems and ensure that plumbing systems are working smoothly.
