Wondering how professional drain cleaning works and whether it’s worth it or not? Read on for the facts.


How the Pros Clean Drains

When you hire a plumber to professionally clean your drains, they will begin by using a special camera mounted to a cable that can be inserted into the drain in order to visually inspect the inside of the pipes and determine the nature and location of the clog. Once the clog has been located, your plumber will use a heavy duty drain snake to dislodge and remove the blockage. 


Why Have Your Drains Professionally Cleaned?

It’s Better for Your Pipes

If you have a nasty clog that can’t be solved with a plunger, call a plumber instead of reaching for a bottle of liquid drain cleaner. Store-bought drain cleaners contain corrosive chemicals that actually eat away at your pipes and cause damage over time, whereas having your drains cleaned professionally will effectively remove your clog without harming your pipes.

Stop Recurring Clogs

If you’ve noticed that your drain clogs pretty regularly, it’s likely that you have some blockages that are just getting broken up and moved around periodically, then clogging things up in a different spot, or you may have a buildup of oils or grease in your pipes that causes debris to stick and form clogs easily. Professional drain cleaning will completely clear your pipes, so you won’t have to worry about pesky recurring drainage issues anymore.

Prevent & Get Rid of Foul Odors

Even if your drains aren’t noticeably clogged, it’s a good idea to have them cleaned periodically to prevent and get rid of undesirable odors. Food bits, grase, shower products, and bacteria all stick to the inside walls of pipes and can create some pretty nasty odors that waft up through the drain and stink up your house. Yuck! Keep your drains fresh with routine cleaning.
