We have found here at The Twin Home Experts that the only way to get rid of them is to completely re-mediate wet areas and sanitize as well as completely dry down the affected soils. If it's a drain line, the clog has to be cleared completely and the ultimate way to get rid of them is by scour jetting the line, this deep cleaning application does wonders with respect to the inner walls of the pipes from all the build up. The issues with your typical rooter cable are, yes, it will clear the clog, but it doesn’t clean the walls of the pipe entirely, it's important to accomplish this because the adult drain flies can stick around for awhile. The bottom line to getting rid of them is to get rid of the food source.
If you're thinking about using a tough drain cleaner or even bleach, then think twice. We have a lot of confidence in our The Twin Home Experts Double Impact drain cleaner, but it's not tough enough to shoo those pesky things away.
Follow our Twin Plumbing advice here above and we can be sure that you will be left alone from the drain flies, the plumber and the pest control companies. As always, folks, thanks for reading our blog today.
