A majority of the calls we receive are from residents that need help with plumbing issues that occur regularly in residential homes across the United States, and oftentimes they are common problems such as leaks, malfunctioning hot water heaters, or burst pipes. One problem that was presented from a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee was regarding the amount of buildup in their pipes that had created an almost impassable clog.
Residential homes are susceptible to falling victim to clogged pipes, however, the amount of fats, oils, and grease that gets cycled through the plumbing of some commercial restaurants can be alarming and create a clog situation much more quickly.
Upon arriving at the commercial location and learning more about the state of the pipes, our expert technician very quickly began the process of breaking through the clog with conventional plumbing tools to completely remove the debris. A traditional plumbing snake was the tool of choice for our technician, with the goal to clear the pipe of as much of the debris as they could.
Once the clogged material had all been removed and flushed out of the pipes, creating a nearly brand new condition of the flow of water and debris through the pipes, it was explained to the business owner that more regular cleanings would be necessary to keep the pipes from completely clogging like that again. They were also asked to consider them because of the amount of grease and other organic materials that are being flushed through the pipes daily.
