You Will Absolutely Want This Plumbing Service Done Regularly

Regular plumbing services aren’t as exciting to homeowners as they should be. We know that there’s an idea in people’s heads about professional plumbers only being called as a last resort, and we’re here to shatter that misconception. The best kind of plumbing service is the preventative one because it keeps problems from happening and stops plumbing emergencies from occurring so frequently.

One of these preventative services that we’re going to vouch for today is drain cleaning in Champaign, IL. You might not think this is a vital service, but we have one word to dispel that myth—clogs. Drain clogs are the worst. They always happen at inconvenient times, they’re messy and unsanitary to clear on your own, and they can be downright hard to remove by yourself. Drain cleaning services offered by a team of professionals are designed to stop clogs in their tracks and make it so you rarely have to call for a plumber in an emergency.

Why Are Drain Cleaning Services Regular?

Drain cleaning services should be regular because they’re important for the health and wellbeing of your plumbing system. As drains get more and more clogged, which is an unavoidable thing to happen, they’ll cease to function as efficiently and you’ll be frustrated with the poor performance of your drains.

Drains will slow down, get clogged completely, and ultimately you’ll find yourself resistant to using certain appliances and drains in your home because of how poorly they perform. This is an unfortunate reality of homeownership and it’s why drain cleaning services are so necessary.

Now, if you invest in yearly drain cleaning services by a professional, you can avoid the slow degradation of your drains altogether. Our team has access to powerful equipment that will keep your drains clog-free no matter how intensely they’re used by you and your family.

“Can’t I Clean My Drains Myself?”

The short answer to this question is no, but we’d like to explain. While you can use a drain snake or a plunger to clear out some of the clogging material in your drains, the truth is that many clogs will be almost impossible to remove with just the tools of a homeowner. Our team has access to specialized equipment that makes it easy to remove even the toughest clogs very quickly.

For instance, a hydro-jet is a perfect example of a professional tool that will clean your drains entirely. Even drain clogs developed over years with paper products and other problematic materials can be blown away in a cinch with a hydro-jet—all in a few minutes! And, to top it all off, hydro-jets only use natural water to do the trick!

Avoid Chemical Cleaners

This brings us to our final point, which is the damage that can be caused when a homeowner tries to clean their own drain. Many people find the aisle at the grocery store full of chemical drain cleaners and think it’ll do the trick, but this is a big mistake. Chemicals will not only barely work at removing the clog in your drain, but they will also do damage to your plumbing system and cause adverse health effects as a result. It’s a good idea to stay away from these solutions.
