There are lots of things that can go wrong with your Seattle pipes. They can clog, crack, break, collapse, backup, and more. Many people think that by cleaning out their pipes with DIY methods, their pipes will be fine. Unfortunately, this is typically doing more harm than good. Instead of using DIY methods, call in the professionals. They can do the job once, right, so you don’t have to worry again in the future.
Dangers of DIY Drain Cleaning
Your Seattle pipes are probably made of metal of some sort. Most drain cleaners are chemically-based. This means as those chemicals come in contact with the metal, they begin to corrode it. The cleaner is meant to sit and slowly work its way down the drain. This means that it is contact with the pipes for an extended period of time. Corroded pipes are more likely to crack, leak, or collapse entirely. This should always be avoided.
How Snaking Your Drains Can Cause Damage to Your Pipes
Putting a snake into a clogged drain may help with the problem, for now. However, it could also lead to a much bigger problem. If you push whatever was clogging your drain down into your pipes, it is not going to somehow break up and leave your pipes alone. Instead, it is going to catch on any residue you have in your pipes and cause an even larger clog. Plus, the snake could scratch the drain, leaving it in less than ideal condition when you are done. Unless you have the right tools, you need to make sure you leave the drain cleaning to us.
