Let’s talk about that one frustrating drain. You know which one we’re talking about. The one you have to watch slowly drain as you brush your teeth at night, or the one that, no matter how many times you use the drain snake or plunger, is always slow or clogged. You’re so frustrated wondering what to do that you hop online and start searching for DIY solutions.
The bad news is that no DIY solution, aside from what you’ve already done, is going to save you. In fact, most DIY solutions will make the problem worse or mess with your plumbing system in other ways. The good news is—you’ve come to the right place!
We’re going to talk about why professional drain cleaning in Bucks County is an essential service. By working with us, you can take care of that nasty clog once and for all.
Detecting a Drain That Needs Cleaning
We get it, many homeowners already know their drain is clogged. For anyone out there in this position, you can feel free to skip this section. For everyone else, it can be difficult to figure out whether or not your drains need to be cleaned. Unfortunately, it’s up to you to determine whether or not you need a plumber. We’ve listed some ways you can detect whether or not your drain needs to be cleaned by a professional:
- Gurgling noises
- Slow drains
- Clogged drains
- Foul odors
All of these can be symptoms of a clogged or almost clogged drain that requires professional attention.
The Benefit of Professional Service
Once you’ve identified that you have a drain that’s clogged and needs help, what next? You could head to the pharmacy or grocery store to pick up some store-bought drain cleaner to pour down there. And you could try looking up tutorials online for how to fix it. But none of these solutions will do as good of a job as you think they will. Only a professional plumber can address the root of the drain clog and clean it out accordingly.
Chemical drain cleaners often destroy the lining of your pipes in addition to the clogs. Sometimes they don’t even work at all! While DIY plumbing instructions can be fairly accurate, your average local plumber has the years of training and experience required to address your plumbing system.
Hire the Right Plumber
Plumbers have access to specific industrial-grade tools that homeowners don’t. For instance, a good plumber will have something called a hydro-jetter, which is a hose attached to a metal auger. Hydro-jetters use powerful streams of water to clear out any clogs or debris in drains, leaving them clear and ready for use. The only way you’ll be able to work with this kind of plumber is if you pay attention to their certification, experience, and training.
Be sure to work with a journeyman plumber or a master plumber who is certified to work on your plumbing system.
