What’s all the fuss about drain cleaning? Every home has that one drain that just seems to clog all of the time no matter how often you plunge it. The water flows without trouble one day, then the very next the drain backs up again. Frustration just keeps building until you finally either decide to give up or do something about it.
Drain issues happen for all sorts of reasons, but there’s always something that can be done. So, don’t give up just yet, because the underlying issue is usually much less involved than you might think. Even if you’ve given up on your own DIY efforts, remember that you can always call in your trusted plumber. Calling in a professional is the natural next step to resolve your plumbing issues, and if that’s not reason enough for you to give us a call, here are a few more reasons why you should call in a professional next time your drains give you trouble:
- Professional care guarantees a job well done – This is the most obvious reason why you should call in a professional to clean out your drains because satisfaction is guaranteed. Professional drain cleaning just works; there’s no second guessing or worry that you did something wrong. When you hire a pro, they always come prepared with everything that they need to solve your plumbing issue, whatever it may be.
- A professional can prevent future clogs – If that drain that you keep “fixing” continues to clog, then chances are pretty good that something is stuck in your pipes that your at-home plunger just can’t remove. There may some kind of material constricting water flow that keeps catching other materials like hair, soap scum, grease, etc. So, when you clean the drain out, you get all of the new stuff that the blockage caught but not the blockage itself. This can be tricky to remove on your own, but a professional has the right tools to remove these blockages from your pipe walls safely, effectively and permanently.
- Professional removal is safer than DIY – When a plunger doesn’t work, people usually turn to chemical drain cleaners next. And, while it can get the job done, it’s rarely worth the cost, as these acidic chemicals can actually eat away at your pipes in addition to the clogged material. This means you could actually be doing permanent damage to your plumbing system that could eventually lead to other clogs, leaks, and even ruptures. A professional, however, won’t use harmful chemicals to clean out your pipes. Their methods are non-toxic, greener and safer, so they can clear your drains without causing any damage to your pipes.
- A professional can identify potential issues – Just as you go to your doctor for regular check-ups and preventive care, the same applies to plumbing maintenance. When you call a professional out, not only can they fix the problem at hand, they can check your entire system to make sure that everything is working in proper order and identify any potential problems that could give you a headache down the road. They’ll also give you advice on how to properly maintain your pipes so that the same problems don’t keep recurring.
