When you find your drain is clogged – indicated by the foulness wafting up from it or a puddle that never seems to quite go down the drain – save yourself the trouble of making a mistake bigger than you may think you can and letting someone from our team at Hall’s Plumbing come over and take a look at any clogged drain issues you may be having.
However well-intentioned you may be, chances are that at some point you are actually going to end up doing damage by trying to unclog a drain by yourself. We can help you with our training in identifying various issues and correctly using plumbing tools intended for freeing up clogged drains by professionals.
Though chemicals may seem the fastest solution, they can actually lead to damage in the longer term. Apart from being non-environmentally friendly downstream, these chemicals can even end up pooling right out front in your own yard if the issue is actually a crushed or damaged pipeline to your city’s sewer. Chemicals may seem to successfully clear the clog locally, allowing your sink to drain again, but they do not assist with the health and proper maintenance of your drainage system for the long haul.
For one thing, these chemicals are not only rough on the clogs themselves, but they can act to more readily deteriorate the materials of your pipes and plumbing system. Your system simply may not be able to handle the chemical reactions that occur in the pipes in order to remove the clog, which can also lead to damaging effects in your pipes that are more readily noticeable. Chemicals can also not be combined well with other methods – such as when the chemical fails and you reach for the plunger. You can splash corrosive chemicals back up in your direction with these attempts and cause yourself bodily injuries. Why settle for a temporary solution that is riskier than it may seem at first glance? Call us as your plumbers to re-establish proper drainage the safe way.
