We’ve noticed that many people get creative when trying to unclog their drains, but when it comes to drain cleaning, creativity just doesn’t cut it. People scramble to find a substance to dump down the drain or an object to shove down in hopes of removing the drain blockage, but these DIY methods rarely ever work and are almost always more trouble than they’re worth. Learn a thing or two from these drain cleaning mistakes and when you find your drain is clogged, scramble right to the phone to call Rooter-Man Plumbers!
Drain Cleaning No-Nos
Using a coat hanger or other object to stab away at a drain blockage – While this might sound like a good, cheap way to unclog a drain, it almost certainly won’t work. The process of bending the object to fit into the drain is difficult, and it’s likely that you’ll damage your plumbing pipe. Some people even end up adding to the problem by getting another item lodged in the drain. At Rooter-Man Plumbers, we have the appropriate cable drain cleaning equipment for the job!
Store-Bought Drain Cleaning Chemicals – Success that people have with these is very limited and using them is risky. If your drain is completely clogged, the chemicals may sit in your pipe, causing damages. The chemicals are also hazardous and can cause burns to skin and eyes. Most of the time, they help a little but never enough, and it’s just easier and more effective to get professional drain cleaning service in Magnolia.
Using a garden hose to flush away drain blockages – While we appreciate people’s enthusiasm for drain cleaning, bringing the garden hose in for this job is never a good idea. You’re likely to make a mess and not even begin to resolve the issue. Our plumbers have hydro-jetting equipment specifically designed to safely and effectively clear your plumbing pipes.
