Why Schedule Professional Drain Cleaning Services?

You have most certainly run into a slow moving or backed up drain at some point in your life. Your first reaction—and one that you share with many other ill–advised homeowners—was likely to run out to your local Vancouver hardware store and purchase a chemical drain cleaner. Believe it or not, this is really not a practice in which you should partake. Those cleaners are environmentally unsound, and they can corrode pipes if used frequently or on certain materials. Plus, they may clear enough of the clog for the cleaner to move through, but will almost definitely leave some behind. When you schedule professional drain cleaning, chemicals are unnecessary, and the job will be completed thoroughly.

Signs That You Need Drain Cleaning

The most obvious sign that you need professional drain cleaning is, of course, a backed–up drain. If you are standing ankle–deep in water after showering, or if you must go do some chores while you wait for sinks to drain, then professional drain cleaning is obviously a good idea. However, this is not the only instance in which such action is advisable. If your drains are gurgling but draining, it likely won’t be long before they begin to fail in the latter. Also, any foul odours coming from your drains may be due to build–up.
