Do I Need Professional Drain Cleaning?

kid-in-bathPlumbing systems are more complex than many homeowners realize, due to the fact that so much of the plumbing system is hidden from view. Sure, you have exposed fixtures like your toilet or your faucets, but you also have a lot of drain pipes, your main water and sewer lines, and other components that are completely hidden from view. There is a lot that can go wrong with any plumbing system–though scheduling professional plumbing services with a company that uses the best materials available will definitely cut down on the risk.

Perhaps the most common problem that homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems are clogged drains. Unfortunately, the cause of most drain clogs can often be traced back to user error. Taking some simple precautions will help to reduce the risk of drain clogs, but eventually you’ll encounter one. When you do, we strongly suggest you schedule professional drain cleaning in Tucson, AZ. Today, let’s talk about why.

Professional Drain Cleaning Offers Great Results

There are a few options that homeowners frequently turn to when they want to clean out their drains on their own.

First, you may remove the p-trap under a sink and try clearing that out if the clog is inside it. That is not always the case, though. Oftentimes, the clog is further down the line. Also, that’s not really an option if the clogged drain is in a bathtub.

Next is the chemical cleaner. These are readily available and easy to use. However, they are more of a bandage than a cure. These cleaners often remove just enough of the clog for the cleaner itself to move past. That leaves a lot behind, and that remaining clog will build up once more before long.

Using a hand auger is a better option. However, there is still a good chance that you won’t be able to actually reach the clog with such an instrument. Plus, an untrained individual may simply force the auger through the clog, leaving a donut behind in the pipe. Again, this will allow for build-up once more before long.

The Better Option

Schedule your drain cleaning with us! We have equipment at our disposal that is not readily available to consumers. This includes scour jet equipment that lets us blast clogs away using highly pressurized water. We also have video pipe inspection equipment that will let us peer deep into the system, locating tough-to-find clogs and also assessing the success of our efforts.

Don’t just ignore gurgling or slow-moving drains in your home. It may not be an emergency in the way that a burst hot water tank is, but it’s still a big problem. These clogs are not going to loosen up and remove themselves. It takes a skilled, professional plumber to get the job done right. That’s the only kind of plumber you’ll find on The Sunny Plumber Tucson’s team. We are happy to ensure that your plumbing system succeeds! Just contact us if you have any concerns about the drains in your home.
