Clogged Drain Cleaning: Mechanical snaking
Mechanical snaking or simply drain snaking is a straightforward way to remove stubborn clogs. Here’s how it works. The “snake” enters into the drain pipe. Then it breaks out the clog. The debris is then flushed further or pulled out.
Many people resort to using mechanical snakes when plunging doesn’t work. A great advantage of this is that the snakes can enter deep into the drain. They can get to the root of the problem. Contrast that with plunging. If you are using the plunger for more than an hour, maybe a better solution is to try mechanical snaking.
You can actually buy a drain snake from a hardware store. You can hold the drain snake and remove the clogs yourself. On the other hand, you can also ask professionals to do the snaking. They use powerful mechanical snakes that effectively remove clogs.
In many cases, maybe doing it yourself and using a tool from your local hardware store is enough. But in some cases, a powerful drain snake is the best solution. It’s especially effective for removing pretty solid clogs in drains.
Experienced pros can completely remove clogs and unblock drains in a much more cost-effective way. Some people are tempted to use harsh chemicals or try a bunch of different ways to remove clogs. They will try everything themselves to save on cost. However, with pros you can actually save time and money. Not to mention the additional hassles you’ve been spared from.
Now you know what is mechanical snaking. Let’s move on to Partial or Full Drain Replacement.
