Do I Need Professional Drain Cleaning?

Ever wonder if professional drain cleaning is really worth it? Well, the short answer is yes. Here’s why.

Why Get Professional Drain Cleaning Done?

Professional drain cleaning is recommended because it is a reliable way to remove clogs fully without damaging your plumbing system. Often, when you unclog a drain yourself, it doesn’t actually get rid of the clog, it just breaks it apart and/or moves it around, which means that the same materials might cause another clog in the future. Having your drains cleaned by professionals is an effective way to get rid of stubborn blockages, but you should also have it done from time to time as preventative maintenance, even if your drains aren’t noticeably clogged.

How Often Should I Have My Drains Cleaned?

We recommend having your drains professionally cleaned about once a year. This gets rid of any excess debris inside your pipes and helps to prevent severe clogs before they happen. You should also watch for these common signs that your drain is due for a cleaning.

Signs it’s Time to Have Your Drain Cleaned

  • Your sink drains slowly
  • Your sink backs up frequently
  • The drain clogs over and over again
  • Your DIY plunging efforts aren’t getting rid of the clog
  • You hear gurgling coming from the drain often
