Attempting to Fix the Problem Yourself
One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make when faced with a blocked drain is trying to fix the problem themselves. While some minor blockages can be cleared with a plunger or drain snake, more significant issues require the expertise of a qualified plumber. However, even with minor blockages, attempting to fix the problem yourself may cause damage to your pipes, which can be expensive to repair.
Ignoring a Blocked Drain
Ignoring a blocked drain can lead to more significant issues down the line. Blocked drains can cause water to back up into your home, resulting in water damage, and can even lead to burst pipes. In extreme cases, a blocked drain can cause structural damage to your home. It’s essential to address the problem as soon as possible to prevent these issues from occurring and to conserve water.
Calling a Plumber
Don’t wait until it’s too late—call a plumber at the first sign of a blocked drain. Experienced plumbers have the expertise and equipment needed to address even the most stubborn blockages. For example, high-pressure water jets blast away even the toughest blockages without causing damage to your pipes. Or sewer camera inspections to identify the root cause of the blockage, so the necessary steps to prevent it from happening again.
