3 Reasons to Schedule Professional Drain Cleaning

sunny-plumber-vanSometimes you just want to get something done. Sometimes that means doing it yourself. We know that most people out there aren’t going to try and do anything crazy, like replace their entire sewer line on their own. There are certain plumbing projects that homeowners are more inclined to try and take on themselves, though. Cleaning one’s drains, for instance. Something that surprises a lot of people is the fact that this too is a service best left to the pros.

Professional drain cleaning in Phoenix is always going to be your best option. We know it doesn’t necessarily sound like a job that only professionals can handle. We know that you can buy various materials down at the hardware store that will “clean” your drains. But we also know that these materials have, at best, very limited success—especially in the long term. And we can all agree that cleaning your drains on a regular schedule isn’t exactly something you want to deal with!

Liquid Cleaners? Limited Use.

The first thing that most homeowners think of when their drains really slow down are those commercials. You know the ones. Slick animations. Incredible claims. Foaming agents. All that. Look, if you want to give liquid drain cleaners a go before you opt for professional drain cleaning, that’s fine. Sometimes they’ll do the trick. When you’re dealing with a clog that is at all stubborn, though, you’re probably not going to get too far.

In many cases, this harsh chemical mixture is only going to free up enough of the clog for some water and the cleaner itself to move past it. That means that a lot of the clog can get left behind. And that means that it’s only a matter of time before that clog starts to reform. So even if it seems like the cleaner did the trick, those results may be fleeting.

Drain Snakes? Amateur Results.

Again, snaking out a drain may not be the most complicated thing a plumber has to do. But that doesn’t mean that just anyone can do it well. Without the skill of a professional plumber, and the tools and equipment they have to evaluate the success of their efforts, snaking out a drain is really just a best guess.

Yes, you may clear the clog. Or you may just force the snake through the clog. And you may think you got it! Only to have the drain slow right back down again. That’s a frustrating situation, and it’s one you can avoid by working with professionals.
