Taking Care of Perimeter and Interior Drains

By on March 5, 2017

Clogged drains happen to everyone, and they are not fun. If the drain is completely blocked, the bathtub, shower, sink or toilet become full of water. At this point, the offending blockage must be removed through all that built up water and chances are that the homeowner will not be able to clear it using household remedies or drain products. Once you call a professional plumber in, you’ll be looking at an expensive bill. The more stubborn the blockage in your drain is, the higher the cost can be. If you have multiple clogged drains in your home at any given time, you will wish you had taken the precaution to preventive have your drains inspected.

How Do Clogged Drains Happen?

Carelessness is the number 1 cause of clogged drains. Kitchen sink drain clogs can take place when you don’t use the drain strainer to catch particles of food and rubbish from falling through the drain into the pipes. A buildup of these particles can easily clog the drain. To make matters worse, cooking grease and/or oil can build up in the pipes (or on a developing clog). In the toilet, the flushing of excessive toilet paper is the main culprit. Flushing items not intended for the toilet is also a main cause of clogged toilet drains. Items such as baby wipes, paper towels, and sanitary napkins can singularly or over time cause a stoppage. Bathroom sinks, showers and bathtubs can become clogged when hair gets caught in the pipes and builds up. Items such as shampoos, soaps, toothpaste, hair gel, exacerbate the problem as they produce a build up that further adds to the blockage.

Unfortunately, some clogs can occur as a result of problems that have nothing to do with what you put into your drains. Scale, tree roots, deterioration of pipes that are rusted and crushed drain lines have also been known to cause plumbing problems. These are problems that occur in the perimeter drain tile Vancouver. It’s a problem that can only be fixed with professional equipment in most cases.

Drain Clog Remedies

You can attempt to clear clogged drains yourself by using acids or other chemical products designed for this purpose. These chemicals, however, can actually be harmful to your pipes, your fixtures, your health and the environment. Luckily, there are also natural methods of clearing drain blockages. One such method involves running boiling water through the drains on a regular basis. Another method employs baking soda and vinegar. Simply pour vinegar into the clogged drain, and then sprinkle it liberally with baking soda. Let the mixture sit in the drain for at least 15 minutes, then pour boiling water over it to rinse and hopefully wash the blockage away.

Inspect and Prevent Instead

The plumbing system in your home is just like any automobile, machine, or tool. It is a system that requires routine examination and maintenance. You can be vigilant about what’s going on with your drains and pipes and perform part of the inspection yourself, as you are most familiar with how the perimeter drains Vancouver behave. In order to truly avoid the hassle and expense of seriously clogged drains you must have all of your household drains inspected on a regular basis by a qualified plumber.

As a preventative measure, you should also have a plumbing technician snake all of your drain lines once a year or so. If you experience drain clogs very often or your pipes are susceptible to blockages, you may wish to have your drain lines snaked more often. The major drain connections should periodically be subjected to video inspections.

It is very important to have your drains inspected on a regular basis to prevent problems that can be not only expensive, but also very annoying!

Cleaning Heating Vents in Your Home

By on November 7, 2016

Cleaning the heating vents or as many people like to call them… ducts, enhances the quality of air in the home. Dirty vents; keep the occupants in a home at a constant danger of contracting respiratory complications.

Therefore, furnace ducts or furnace vents should always stay clean so that the homeowner can protect himself and the other occupants from the following health hazards.

Health Hazards in Dirty Heating Ducts

To begin with, dirty ducts pollute the air inside the home. Once there is air pollution, the occupants are at risk of contracting numerous illnesses. Unbelievably, 50 percent of all diseases come from polluted air inside the house. Add that to the fact that about 60 to 90 percent of people spend most of their time in the house while with the windows and doors closed for the better part of the day, and you see how, unclean heating vents can easily lead to health problems. Dirty vent ducts also expose people to allergies due to the constant exposure to fungi and other pathogens. Therefore, this explains why many people suffer from respiratory illnesses.

Actually, seniors in a residential home with dirty ducts increases their chances of contracting Asthma, which means that such people would remain safer outdoors rather than indoors. Apart from seniors, children breathe faster, inhale more air in very breath they take, and they spend a lot of time close to the ground heightening their chances of catching illnesses associated with untidy ducts. Fortunately, homeowners can avoid such problems and illnesses by cleaning the ducts to keep the air fresh after every five years, the maximum time required before you call a duct cleaning company. The best way to remedy dust build-up is to hire a heating or furnace repair company Kelowna who can also clean the vents.

Central Heating Vents

Fundamentally, this system is usually placed in one specific part of the house to supply warmth to all the other rooms inside the house or office. To provide the heat, the central system uses furnace vents. The heat ducts play a major role by providing the entire house with warm and clean air especially during cold seasons thereby giving the homeowner a better alternative as compared to heating the home using logs, coal and other fuels. However, to ensure that the warmth produced does not pose any threat to the health of the occupants; homeowners must clean the vents regularly.

Another area to consider when getting this type of service done is the dryer vent for your laundry machine. With constant use the dryer accumulates lint that can easily catch fire thus you should consider regular dryer vent cleaning. In fact, of all the elements in this kind of system, a plugged dryer stands out as a fire hazard.

Conclusion

Duct cleaning for central heating vents helps in keeping the house safe from health and fire hazard. Homeowners who cannot find time for cleaning can hire a professional cleaner. Overall, a residential home with clean furnace ducts offers a safe environment to the occupants in all seasons. Therefore, ensure that you clean your system regularly.
