Ask a Sacramento Drain Cleaning Specialist: Do I really need a professional?

If you’ve ever been standing over your bathtub's drain, watching the stagnant water slowly drain down your pipes, you know how frustrating a clogged drain can be. A bad clog can quickly become a major problem as toilets and bathtubs get backed up: sooner or later you’ll need to take action. If your first thought is to grab some chemicals and pour until it works, think again. What you really need is local Sacramento drain cleaning specialist that can properly identify the issue and provide you an effective resolution.

Here are some of the issues you might run into with the do-it-yourself approach:

Store bought chemicals: It says “cleans drains in no time” right on the box! What could go wrong right? Right? These solutions are great when built up gunk is what ails you, but what about when the problem is greater? Having a technician fully inspect your system with a camera is the only way you’ll actually know if the solution you’ve used will properly address your issue. You may putting a bandage on a bullet wound while the real issue lurks in the shadows.

Using a snake or jetter without training: You just stick it down the drain and let it do it’s thing right? Wrong. Very Wrong. Using a snake without the proper training will not only fail to solve the issue, you also run the real risk of causing major damage to your pipes. This won’t only be expensive to fix, but will also cause collateral damage to your home. Never let anyone who isn’t properly trained and certified in the equipment work in your home without supervision.

Hiring a second rate plumber: Everyone has “a guy” when it comes to home services, but you might want to think twice before you give him or her a call. Only a trained professional can properly assess this issues. You may end up with an overly larger bill for a very minor problem, and if they don’t have the supplies, you might be waiting days before your issue can be fixed.
