Why You Shouldn't Clean a Clogged Drain Yourself
When you suspect something is wrong with your drain, the last thing you should ever do is try digging around in it with DIY techniques or pouring store-bought chemicals into the opening.
Below are some common methods that we highly recommend you do not use, and why.
Chemical Cleaning Solutions
Not only can these be hazardous to store, but they can also cause irreversible damage to your pipes over time. In the worst cases, you may end up having to repipe far before it should be necessary.
Don’t take that pot of water to your drains, because you’re risking any fat, grease, or soap scum moving further along the pipe before settling once again.
Poking around blindly into your pipes can accidentally cause breakage. Before you know it your pipe is leaking, causing a much larger problem to handle.
How often should I have my drains professionally cleaned?
The frequency of professional drain cleaning depends on various factors, including the usage patterns, the age of your plumbing system, and the presence of any underlying issues. As a general guideline, it is recommended to have your drains professionally cleaned every 1 to 2 years. However, this can vary based on specific circumstances. Here are some factors to consider:
- Household Size and Usage: If you have a larger household with more people using the drains frequently, you may need more frequent professional cleaning. Increased usage can lead to faster buildup of debris and potential clogs.
- Type of Drains: Different drains within your home may require varying cleaning frequencies. For example, kitchen drains, which often deal with grease and food waste, may require more frequent cleaning compared to bathroom drains.
- Older Plumbing Systems: If you have an older plumbing system, it may be more prone to buildup and clogs. In such cases, more frequent professional cleaning may be necessary to maintain optimal drain function.
- Previous Drain Issues: If you've experienced recurring drain clogs or blockages in the past, it may indicate an underlying problem that requires regular professional cleaning to prevent further issues.
- Preventive Maintenance: Regular professional drain cleaning can serve as a preventive measure to keep your drains clean and clear, reducing the likelihood of clogs and plumbing emergencies.
- Professional Assessment: Consulting with a professional plumber can provide insights into the condition of your drains and the recommended cleaning frequency based on your specific situation.
It's important to note that these are general guidelines, and the specific cleaning frequency may vary based on individual circumstances. Consulting with a professional drain plumber from Zoom Drain of Delaware County can help determine the ideal cleaning schedule for your drains based on their expertise and a thorough assessment of your plumbing system.
