If you’re like most homeowners, you hate the thought of having your Toronto drains cleaned. Not only does it mean spending money, but there’s the inconvenience of having to arrange for a plumber to visit, co-ordinate your schedule and generally deal with the hassle. So the less often you need to do it, the better. Now, with the hydro-jet method, you can ensure a much more thorough cleanse and hopefully reduce the frequency of Toronto drain cleaning – and the likelihood of flooding and water damage.

Here are 5 benefits of using hydro-jetting to clean your drains:

Benefit #1: Complete Cleaning

Hydro-jetting is the ultimate technique for cleaning drains. The plumber injects the pipe with a high pressure water stream that cleans out all debris completely, leaving the pipe clear for water to flow through it without obstruction. Traditional snake-type drain cleaners break up the debris, which can re-clog further down the line, but the jet of water removes it completely. It also prevents self-healing clogs of substances such as grease from re-forming if some material remains.

Benefit #2:  Residue Removal

Toronto drain cleaning using a hydro jet removes all substance residue from the walls of the pipes. Substances that commonly block Toronto drains include:

  • Sand
  • Soap
  • Grease
  • Ice
  • Mud

All of these are capable of leaving residue behind after they are broken up, which is often left caked to the sides of the drain. It’s impossible for the snake to reach the walls of the pipe, so the residue remains there for additional material to cling to, causing future blockages. The high power jet of water blasts the residue out, either at the same time as the debris or shortly after it has cleared the initial blockage.

Benefit #3:  More Maneuverable

Cleaning Toronto drains can be a risky business, because many of the homes have aging infrastructure and pipes that are rusted and could do with replacement. However, when your drains are blocked all you want is to remove the clog, preferably without damaging the pipe. Hydro-jet cleaning uses a pulse flow, which allows the hose more maneuverability inside the pipes. This enables the plumber to target the site of the blockage and by-pass areas that may be vulnerable to damage, and is particularly useful for moving around tree-roots when those are the reason for the clog.

Benefit #4: Banishing Bacteria

Bacteria that settle in your drains cause an endless array of problems. From harbouring disease through to causing foul odours, bacteria are responsible for many issues. The hydro-jet method of Toronto drain cleaning removes all bacteria and leaves the drain pipes squeaky clean and fresh. If you’re experiencing odd smells coming from your Toronto drains, there’s a strong possibility that hydro-jet cleaning will make a huge difference.

Benefit #5: Saving Money

The greatest benefit of using hydro-jet cleaning for your Toronto drains is the financial benefit. Because this method of cleaning gets the drains so completely clear and fresh, it’s not necessary to have twice-yearly cleaning any longer. After a cleaning with a high pressure water stream, your plumber will conduct a camera inspection of the pipes to make sure they are completely clear. This type of detailed cleaning secures your pipes against clogs for several years and saves you money on Toronto drain cleaning in the long term.
