When to Use Professional Drain Cleaning Services

Although it may seem illogical to call a professional drain cleaning company whenever there is a problem with a clogged drain, it might just be the best way to go, especially for those on a septic system rather than a public sewer system. The reason is because many of the methods a homeowner might consider can actually be damaging to the system.

When to Use Professional Drain Cleaning ServicesChemical drain cleaners should be used only as a last resort to unclog pipes because they are harmful to septic systems. Needing to use them often is also a potential sign of a bigger problem, which will only get worse if ignored.

The best method for drain cleaning is to use professional equipment that is safe both for the lines and the septic system, but owning one of these machines doesn’t make sense for the typical homeowner.

Another reason to use professional drain cleaning services is that they are trained to be able to diagnose the cause of the clog and thus be able to give advice on how to avoid a recurrence. For example, often toilet drain problems are a result of flushing items that are not designed to disintegrate quickly, such as baby wipes, facial tissue and feminine products.

One of the best ways to avoid clogs in the first place is to have routine drain cleaning services performed. By keeping all the drains cleaned and running smoothly, there is less chance of buildup of things such as food, waste, grease, and hair.
