The Clogged Drain

Clogged drains, though common, are still a problem best left to a professional. While there are hundreds of chemicals, bottles, vinegars, and more commercial products designed to correct this type of issue, these items may do more harm than good.

  • Minimum Effectiveness: These chemicals oftentimes only dissolve the tiniest portion of the clog—just enough to allow a little water to flow once again. Sure, the drain works once more, but in all reality, this is a temporary fix. In a short while, you’ll be back at the general store buying more drain cleaner.
  • Acidity: The biggest problem with these cleaners is their high acidity. Because these products don’t completely remove the clog, you’ll have to use them again before long. Frequent of chemicals and acids can overtime dissolve the pipe joint itself creating a much larger mess, and a much more expensive repair.

The Alternative

The other option is to hire a professional trained to assess and solve situations exactly like this. Our licensed plumbers use drain snakes and pipe rodding to eliminate clogs, thus removing the problem entirely instead of putting it off another day.
