Every house and building has that one sink or drain that seems to clog all the time. No matter how often you plunge it, it happens again and again, and that quickly gets tiring. Drain problems happen for many reasons. And lots of times, it’s a much easier fix than you assume. On the other hand, if you’re not an expert, trying to fix something might cause even bigger issues. For example, if you try to clear a drain line on your own and get the snake stuck in the line, you are better off selling your home and moving out of the country (by the way, if you do decide to move long distance, we recommend checking ou verified movers). All jokes aside, here is why you should let the pros clear your drains.
1. Prevent Future Clogs
Did you give a thought to why that drain always clogs again and again? All the chances are that there’s something in the pipes that your plunger can’t remove.
However, whatever is in your pipes still constricts water flow. The obstruction in the pipe catches all the hairs, grease, or soap every time you use the drain, and that new material accumulates. When it’s hardened, no amount of plunging can make it go away.
Experts have commercial-grade tools that could clear most stoppages. But more importantly, the tools and methods used by an experienced plumber are designed to clear stoppages in a way that they will stay clear for longer periods of time.
2. Drain Chemicals are Harmful to Your Pipes
Of course, there are many other DIY methods for cleaning a drain besides plunging. Most of the time, when people want to try to fix the problem on their own, after a plunger, they’ll use a chemical drain cleaner. And we highly recommend, staying away from chemicals. You see, acid is a big part of chemical drain cleaners, and they work by eating away at the clog. However, they often don’t stop there. The acid can’t distinguish the clog from your pipes, and it may start destroying them too. This is an irreversible process, so every time you use chemicals, it takes off some of the pipe material.
3. Locate Potential Problems
When they come to take care of the clog, plumbers will also do a checkup of your pipes. They’ll look for problems you might have missed, and they’ll tell you if you’ll encounter some in the future. Moreover, they’ll let you know how you can deal with them and if there’s anything you can do to keep them from getting worse.
If you just bought a new house, this is a great way to check the state of your plumbing. Not only will you get all of your drains cleaned and up and running, but you’ll also hear about:
- Possible corrosion or rust
- Root intrusion
- Offsets and breaks
- Wear and tear

They’ll come with all the tools they need, and they’ll get to the bottom of it. And even if something unexpected happens, they’ll know how to deal with it.

So, those are the biggest reasons to have your drains cleaned by the pros. It’s a solution that is easy, safe, and that’ll last. If that’s what you want, you know what you need to do – call the experts.
