Much as we’d like to tell you otherwise, you are eventually going to run into problems of some kind with your residential plumbing system. In some cases, such as a ruptured water heater or a sewer backup, you are very obviously going to need to call in professional plumbers. Other problems, however, may seem like issues that you can handle on your own. Before you decide that this is the case and then skip over calling the pros and try to handle the job on your own, you may want to reconsider that stance.
Sure, something like a slow-moving or backed up drain may not seem like a plumbing emergency. That does not mean, however, that you don’t need professional plumbing services. There is a big difference between getting water to go down the drain and actually cleaning out that drain for lasting effects, you see. When your drains are being stubborn, we strongly recommend that you schedule professional drain cleaning in Tampa, FL.
We know, we know. You can run out to the local hardware store, or even most grocery stores, and buy those miraculous drain cleaners that you can just uncap and dump into your drains in order to clean them out. The problem with this is that they are not going to do a thorough job of it.
Sure, those caustic chemicals will probably break up the clog–but likely only enough to allow the cleaner to pass through. That means a substantial chunk of the clog may be left behind, and that means that further clogs are only a matter of time. While using a drain snake may be a better option, untrained individuals may simply force that snake through the clog, leaving much behind and resulting in the same issues.
So how do you know if you’ve done a thorough job of cleaning your drains? Well, you can’t, really. You can run the water and see if it goes down the drain, but that is about as much information as you’ll be able to glean. Our plumbers, on the other hands, can take a peek right into the drain itself.
We have video pipe inspection equipment that allows us to not only pinpoint the clog, but to assess the overall job that we’ve done in cleaning the drain. That eliminates the guesswork and helps us to guarantee a job well done. Only then is our job, well, done!
After a while, even the most ardent DIY enthusiast is going to get sick of the inconvenience that clogged drains can lead to. Running out to the store for more and more chemical cleaner, ugly rings in plumbing fixtures resulting from long drain times, etc.
Working with trained professionals may not be as cheap as home remedies, but it is definitely more effective and more convenient. Plus, the initial–and still fairly minor–expense of having your drains professional cleaned is well-worth the long-lasting results that will eliminate the need for buying more products to clean seemingly perpetually clogged drains.
