Pipe cleaning for congested pipes
Pipe cleaning is the process of cleaning out the buildup of dirt and residues in a pipe which prevent the proper flow of air or fluid through the pipes. The best pipe cleaning method is pressurized water. Unlike your standard pressure washers the psi (pounds per square inch) for pipe cleaning is extremely high, with psi up to fifteen thousand, and in some cases even higher. For pipe cleaning the pipe is opened on both ends if possible, then the hose is hooked to one end, pressurized water is then forced into the pipe forcing the debris to unclog and flow out the other end of the pipe. It’s best to leave pipe cleaning to the professionals due to there specialized equipment and because of the knowledge of the cleaning process there is less chance of anything going wrong and more chance of the pipes being throughly cleaned out.
In some pipe cleaning processes a frequency is added to the pipe once filled with water to help loosen the debris, the frequency is fluctuated and sent through the water, these fluctuations can help loosen debris which is stuck to different degrees, and again the debris particles will flow out the other end of the pipe and leave the pipe cleaner then it was before and help the flow of the pipe.
Another pipe cleaning process is to add in a stopper or, as it’s also called, a bullet, then when the pressurized water is sent through the pipe the bullet is forced through as well scraping out anymore residue that has been left behind. This step in the pipe cleaning process is often times done at the end to get any left over debris the other process’s may have left behind. After all the processes have been done you are left with throughly clean pipes that have a fast and smooth flow to them and keep you machinery running to full capacity due to the flow not being hindered anymore.
