3 Reasons You Should Get Your Drains Serviced Today

Taking care of your drains is not a do-it-yourself job. Here are three reasons to get your drains serviced.

1. Prevent the Drain from Clogging Again

A drain that clogs repeatedly requires valuable time to plunge the drain to get it open again. What's worse the process has to be repeated again and again, sometimes as often as every few weeks.

A drain that keeps clogging usually has residue that has built up inside the pipe. Clogs happen when something that would normally flow through gets caught in the narrowed space. Plunging the drain moves whatever got caught but it doesn't remove the residue, which will lead to another clog. Luckily, our plumbers can get your drain open and clear the buildup to keep the drain from clogging again.

2. Plunging the Drain Didn't Unclog It

When a drain is running slow or not at all, you may attempt to open it yourself with a plunger. When that doesn't work, a liquid drain cleaner is a next thing they reach for. We advise against the use of liquid drain cleaners.

While these caustic liquids are sometimes effective, they can damage your pipes. Liquid drain cleaners form acid that is meant to eat through the clog. Over time, the drain cleaner will eat through the clog and the pipes. Leaving you with a costly repair.

3. Professional Service is Safer than DIY

There's another reason to have your plumbing serviced rather than using a liquid drain cleaner. Liquid drain cleaners are toxic chemicals that can be harmful to you and the environment. Our plumbing service is safe for people and the environment.
