Drain Cleaning Methods We Use
When you choose professional drain cleaning from Zoom Drain of Lehigh Valley, our
experts will first perform an inspection of the affected drain to be sure
we have an accurate understanding of the condition of your plumbing system.
From there, we can determine the best method to use to clean your drains.
Our methods for drain cleaning in Allentown include:
PowerSnake service – Using a flexible steel cable outfitted with a blade, our PowerSnake
machine rotates as it moves through your drain, cutting through any clogs
and clearing away buildup from the walls of the pipes.
ZOOM Jetting® service – Our very own water jetting system uses powerful, high-pressure
jets of water to blast through sludge, debris, grease, and even tree roots
to thoroughly clean out your drains and clear clogs without damaging your pipes.
Eco-friendly care products – We use and recommend several maintenance care products to help
minimize buildup and clogs. These include bacteria-based drain cleaners,
gentle herbicides to slow the growth of tree roots, and more.
We do not recommend store-bought liquid drain cleaners. These are typically
very caustic and do not take into account the many variables present in
household drain clogs. They can cause damage to plumbing systems and produce
hazardous fumes, and they often just don’t work very well. Drain
cleaning from our Allentown drain specialists offers you peace of mind
and can save you money in the long run.
How to Prevent Drain Clogs
Keeping your drains free and clear of clogs isn’t difficult, but
it does take some vigilance. Here are some tips from our drain experts
for preventing drain clogs and maintaining clean drains:
No foreign matter: Be careful about what washes down the drain. Never pour cooking grease
down the drain, and keep eggshells, coffee grounds, baby wipes, medication,
hygiene products, and other items out of drains, as well.
Run hot water: At least once a week, run hot water through all of your household drains.
This will help break down grease, oils, and other buildup and keep drains
Use drain traps: Cover drains with a mesh screen or trap to catch hair and other debris
before it washes down the drain and accumulates in a water-slowing clog.
As we mentioned, we do not recommend store-bought liquid drain cleaner.
If you wish to try unclogging a drain before calling in the professionals,
we highly recommend using a simple plunger. This method can be surprisingly
effective for many clogs and does not harm your drains or plumbing system.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Services in Allentown
Zoom Drain of Lehigh Valley, we offer trenchless sewer and drain repair. Traditional excavation methods
are invasive and can cause damage to your yard and landscaping, so we
prefer to utilize trenchless repairs and replacement whenever possible.
Trenchless methods are much less invasive, often requiring just two small
holes, one on either end. Depending on the condition of your current drain
lines, we may recommend our ZOOM PowerPipe™ trenchless solution,
which is also known as pipe bursting, or we may recommend ZOOM Pipe Relining,
a seamless, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner. We also serve
Easton and other areas of the Lehigh Valley.
