There are certain jobs around the house that no homeowner is really going to consider taking on his or her own self. Replacing an electrical panel, for instance, is something that very obviously demands the skill and expertise of a licensed, qualified individual. Other household projects, however, don’t seem quite as intimidating. Drain cleaning, for example, isn’t going to put you in harm’s way, right? So why not just do it yourself? The primary reason is so that it is done right!
While it is certainly not the most complex jobs that our plumbers in Golden, CO are tasked with completing, drain cleaning is a very important job nonetheless. It is one that you want to be done right the first time, every time. Read on to learn why drain cleaning is best left to the pros, and then dial our number to schedule service.
Where’s That Clog?
One of the greatest obstacles in trying to clear a clog from the drain is pinpointing the source of that clog. Sure, you’ll probably be able to feel the resistance of a stubborn clog. What if that clog is deeper than you thought? What if the clog is actually way down in the sewer line? This is vital information to have.
Now, you obviously cannot peer deep into your drainage system — but we can. We have video pipe inspection tools that will allow us to locate problem points within your pipes, if necessary. Our plumbers are going to be better prepared for clearing out your drains and cleaning them effectively. There is no point in going into the service blind.
Is the Job Done?
One important part of any job that one undertakes is knowing when the job is done. But how do you do that when you are trying to thoroughly clean out a drain? By simply waiting for the water to start flowing down that drain once more?
Well, that may be the obvious answer, but it can be deceiving. You see, most homeowners turn to liquid chemical cleaners when trying to clean their drains on their own. The problem with this is that such cleaners may simply clear out enough of the clog to let the cleaner itself flow down the drain. The same is true when trying to clear a clog with a hand auger. You may just force the tool through the clog, leaving some of it behind.
That means that the pieces of the clog left behind are already giving the next clog a headstart. Instead of attempting to do the job on your own, and guess if it is done right or not, leave the job to our professional plumbers. We have the drain snakes and hydro-jetting equipment that we need to have your drains fully operational once more.
