Yes—really! We know that there are certain plumbing issues homeowners wouldn’t dream of touching on their own—such as ruptured main water lines or sewer lines. However, there are a lot of plumbing problems that homeowners consider to be rather “minor,” only to learn the hard way that professional plumbing services could have saved them a lot of time, money, and headache. That is the case with clogged drains. Today, we’ll talk about why you want professionals on the job.
Just remember that not all “professionals” are equal. Some, in fact, really push the limits of what you could consider professionalism! When you hire a Sunny Plumber to help you deal with your clogged drain issues, however, you can count on nothing short of the most professional response and the most lasting results. Be it a burst sewer line or something “minor”—not our take—like clogged drains, we always bring our best to every service that we complete.
Why Can’t I Just Clean My Drains Myself?
Well, you can do that. Or, at least, you can try. Don’t misunderstand what we’re saying, here. There are certainly instances in which you’ll be able to remove a clog from your drains. If your toilet backs up after you use it, for instance, you can definitely go ahead and try to resolve the issue by using the plunger that we hope you have in your bathroom. The same goes for your shower. In some cases you may need to plunge that drain. In others, you may be able to remove a very shallow clog that is right up near the drain opening itself.
However, the likelihood of you resolving more stubborn clogs in an effective manner is pretty slim. You can try using those chemical drain cleaners that you see advertised in glossy commercials if you want, but we’re here to tell you that they’re ineffective at best. At worst, they’re caustic and bad for the environment. Snaking out your drain may seem like a better option, but without the experience that a professional plumber has to draw on, you’ll likely wind up removing only part of a clog.
The Sunny Plumber Difference
There are different ways in which our team might deal with your clogged drains. In some cases, snaking the drain may be the way to go. In more complicated instances, we may opt for scour jetting service. This is a highly specialized service that not all plumbers can offer. With scour jet services, we’ll use water—highly pressurized water—to blast away any stubborn clogs in your drains.
Clogged drains are more than a mild inconvenience, especially when you’re trying to get your family out the door to work and school in the morning. There are many instances where you can take your time with DIY projects, but this just isn’t one of them. When your drains slow down, gurgle, or back up completely, the right course of action is to pick up your phone and call the plumber in Torrance that you can trust.
