Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Services
When it comes to comprehensive drain services, our highly trained plumbing technicians feel like they’ve seen and heard it all! Which is why we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive from homeowners just like you, throughout Phoenix.
Why is water coming out of my drain?
Are Drano and other chemical cleaners safe for my drains?
No! We always encourage customers to stay away from chemical drain cleaners as they can be extremely damaging to your home’s plumbing system. The reason they are so harmful is they don’t differentiate between your clog and your pipes, meaning they will eventually eat away at your plumbing, which can mean expensive repairs or replacements for homeowners. Another important thing to note is that they rarely clear the clog completely ― often they just break through it, which means you’ll experience the same clog again soon. There are some DIY methods of drain cleaning you can attempt, but if these don’t work, just give us a call and we’ll take care of it ASAP!
Why call a professional for drain cleaning?
When you can’t clear a clogged drain on your own, there’s no shame in calling on a professional! Our highly skilled plumbing technicians have the innovative tools and equipment to get rid of your clog completely, and give your drains a thorough cleaning in the process! The best part of enlisting the help of a professional to clear your drain clog is that they will ensure your drain is completely free of buildup or damage, often extending the service life of your pipes significantly.
What causes drain clogs?
