Why Can’t I Do It Myself?

We understand that there are a lot of homeowners out there that excel in handling jobs around the house themselves. In this day and age, with a DIY instructional video for just about anything to be found on the internet, it can be hard to draw the line between what you can do yourself, and what should be left to the pros.

For many homeowners, the idea of hiring a professional to clean their drains may seem strange. After all, you can just run down to the store to buy some liquid cleaner or a drain snake, right? Well, sure — but that won’t get you the results that professional cleaning will.

Drain cleaners are caustic chemicals that are not eco-friendly, and they are likely only going to clear out enough of the clog for the cleaner itself to pass through your pipes. It is not a good solution for the thorough cleaning of a drain. A hand auger (snake) may be a better option, but you still run the risk of forcing the snake through the clog, thinking that you’ve gotten it all only to learn the hard way that you’ve left much behind.

What Professionals Can Do
