Clogged drains are a common problem in any household, and sooner or later, you’re likely going to have to deal with them. Ideally, you should be very careful about what you toss down the drain, and avoid sending down foods such as hot grease or fibrous vegetables, which may result in a clog.
When a clog does emerge, you may be tempted to address if with a store-bought cleanser, or perhaps a snake form the local hardware store. Such measures rarely do the job the right way. Instead, you should always call in a trained plumber to get the measure dealt with properly.
Why Use a Plumber?
Store-bought solutions can work, after a fashion. However, they are intended to adopt a one-size-fits-all format when it comes to clogs. That will usually be enough to open up the clog and restore the flow of water, but it often leaves pieces of the clog in place. That means the clog will re-from a few weeks or months later, forcing you to apply the same half-measure over and over again. Even worse, the application of a harsh cleansers or grating snake to the same spot over and over again can cause damage to the pipes themselves.
Contrast that with a professional plumber, who brings specialized tools to the job along with years of experience in treating clogs. That allows the plumber to accurately assess what’s caused the clog, then apply the precise tools needed to resolve the issue. The clog is cleared up the right way and you don’t have to keep applying the same half measures over and over again. In the long run, that saves you both time and a lot of headache.
