When your sewer lines and drains are blocked, it can result in your home flooding. Some things that cause these blockages are dirt, grime, and grease. On top of the water damage to your home, this can lead to costly repairs that will put a huge hole in your wallet. For some helpful tips and information on clearing clogs with water jetting continue reading our blog.

What is Water Jetting Drain Cleaning?

Water jetting is a special and efficient way of cleaning and clearing out your clogged drains. It is a high-pressure hose with a specialized nozzle on the end, that’s connected to a machine that will pressurize the water. The machine will push the water through the nozzle head and begin to clean and clear out the pipes. During this process, debris and other things that have accumulated over time will begin to flush out.

The Importance of Clearing Clogs and Blockages

When there are blockages in your sewer line, the drains inside the structure begin to backup and overflow to places where water isn’t supposed to go. As a homeowner, you are responsible for maintaining your pipes and making sure they are clean. You will typically find things like food scraps, grease and sludge buildup, and other debris clogged into your drains. Water jetting will typically cut straight through this debris with ease and cause them to flush out. This type of drain cleaning is eco-friendly as well; instead of using corrosive chemicals that will cause harm, this is done in a way that won’t damage the environment.
