If you will know how to stop using and treating toilets like wash bins, putting filters into the plug holes so it will not catch food waste, broken soap, and hair, and if you will be flushing your drains with hot water once every week, then you will have a better place to live in.

In a lot of cases, the usual source of blocked drains is the build up of trashes and wastes inside of the pipes. Some of the trashes and wastes in the pipes will have something to do with the leaves, silt, grease, and litter as well. These trashes and wastes will not only be reducing the efficiency of the drains, they will also cause blocked drains if they will be left there to build up for a long period of time. that is why you also need to know that blocked drains will also cause some other problems that will really be bad for your property.

Every time blocked drains happen, there are a number of cleaning options that you can do and among them are the following: the electro-mechanical cleaning and the high pressure water jetting.

When it comes to high pressure water jetting, this will usually refer to the fastest, simplest, and most effective method of cleaning the drains depending on the type of blockage. What happens during this cleaning option is that the pipe will be fired with a continuous jet of water to blast away all the blockages and deposits in order to expel them out of the pipe.

While the electro-mechanical cleaning is mainly used for cleaning blocked bore pipes like sinks and toilets. Not like the water jetting, the electro-mechanical cleaning will make use of a rod that will be pushed into the pipe to get rid of the blockage using manual force.
