Should I Clean My Own Drains?
Some homeowners like to do their own work on their home, and we respect that. However, it’s always a good idea to make sure that what you are doing will help your home, not hurt it. If you want to give drain cleaning a shot before you give us a call, here’s what we suggest.
Start with a chemical solvent. You can buy these from your local hardware or home goods store. Most of the time, they’re pretty easy to use. Following the directions on the bottle, you pour the solvent into your drain, wait a specified period of time, then run water down the same drain. If everything has gone according to plan, the solvent will have dissolved your clog and you’ll be home free.
The only danger when using these solvents is that they can damage your pipes. If you forget about them and leave them in too long, they can eat away not only at your clog, but at the material that makes up your pipe, too. If this happens, you may end up with a much larger repair on your hands.
Some homeowners like to rent plumbing snakes from their local hardware stores and try to use these to dislodge or remove drain clogs. While this can work, we discourage it unless you have a plumbing background or you are willing to take a big risk.
Unfortunately, the snakes you can rent are of an inferior quality when compared to the ones actual plumbers use. They are easy to get caught in the twists and turns of your pipes. When this happens, you absolutely have to call a plumber. If the plumber can’t dislodge the snake, then you are facing some major pipe replacement. Unfortunately, this can cost a lot more and take a lot longer than just calling a plumber in the first place.
No one likes to have a clogged drain, but we can unclog it for you quickly and easily. Our plumbers drive trucks equipped with top of the line equipment, including some of the best plumbing snakes around. They are trained to use them well, so that they will dislodge your clog without a problem. Let us show you why so many people trust Southern Trust.
