Slow Drains? Avoid the Snake and Call a Professional
Have you just learned to live with slow running drains? Maybe you know to keep your handwashing sessions brief and once the drain gets bad enough, you do your own “de-clogging” task to temporarily relieve the problem. Not only should you settle for slow running drains in your home, but your DYI remedies may be doing more harm than good. For homeowners who are plagued by frequent drain clogs, it is common for them to eventually resort to a plumbing tool called the “snake".
A plumbing snake may or may not remedy your clogged drain. However, there is a good chance it will damage your pipes, scratch your porcelain or fail to get to the root of the problem. These are risks you shouldn’t take when it comes to your plumbing system. A better idea is to schedule a professional drain cleaning.
Your drain problems can have various causes and only a professional is qualified to give you an accurate diagnosis. It may be that multiple plumbing fixtures are backing up at the same time, and a thorough drain cleaning can resolve the issue. In other cases, you may have galvanized steel pipes that are notorious for clogs. Therefore, replacing your pipes could be the most long-term solution.
Regular Drain Cleanings Are Important
Do you get your drains cleaned on a regular basis? Customers that do typically save hundreds on their plumbing bills by treating small problems conservatively before they become major plumbing disasters. Regular drain cleaning also prevents odors in the home due to debris, food particles and grease that inevitably build up over time. You’ll be surprised at how fast your water comes out and how much cleaner your home air smells after a professional drain cleaning.
