We all experience a clogged drain in our homes from time to time. Our first instinct is to grab the plunger and solve the problem ourselves. After all, professional plumbing services can be expensive, and we can save some time by just handling it right away. However, what appears to be a simple clogged drain may be more serious than that, and a plumbing expert may be required so that the problem does not become any worse than it is. Listed below are just a few drain repair services that would be best left to a professional plumber.
Despite your best preventative efforts, every homeowner has to face a clogged drain every now and again. When you think of how often the various drains in the typical home are used, you’d think it would happen even more than it does.
Even though calling in a professional plumber will solve your clogs, it probably isn’t necessary for minor clogs. Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry room, be prepared and keep it simple.
A standard-issue plunger is definitely one of the most unglamorous pieces of equipment you’ll use in your DIY efforts. However, it is one of the simplest and most effective pieces of equipment you will use, and it works for most small to medium clogs in sinks, tubs, showers or toilets.
Here’s a scenario that happens all too often….potential homebuyers shop around for that perfect home, make an offer, get a mortgage approval, get a home inspection and become homeowners.
Then, two months or five months or eight months down the road, they are on the phone with a plumber because there is an inch of water in the laundry room or there is some other plumbing-related issue.
If the home passed its inspection with flying colours just a short time ago, how can there possibly be any problems with the plumbing?
