Why You Should Hire a Plumber for Clogged Drain Repair
Clogged drains are a nuisance. And considering how much debris and material go down the average drain, it’s no surprise that they’re one of the most common household plumbing problems. However, most people never consider calling a professional plumber, relying instead on drain cleaners or home remedies they see online.
As we’ll see, these methods aren’t always the appropriate solution, and hiring a pro is the way to go.
Home Remedies Don’t Always Work
Maybe you’ve seen home drain cleaning remedies online, or you have a parent or grandparent that’s passed them down. These drain cleaning solutions can work on minor clogs, but they’re ineffective against thick obstructions like tree roots, grease, and hair. More often than not, using home remedies is a waste of time. Hiring a professional gets the job done more quickly.
Drain Cleaners are Dangerous
The next time you’re thinking of using a drain cleaner to remove a clog, check the ingredients and warnings. These products use highly toxic chemicals that can burn your skin or damage your lungs if you inhale the fumes. And that’s not all. The chemicals used in drain cleaners, such as hydrochloric and sulfuric acid, can damage your pipes and fixtures, leading to pipe ruptures and water leaks. To ensure your personal safety and the safety of your plumbing system, hire a professional.
You May Need Professional Tools
Some clogs are so deep in your plumbing system they require specialized tools to remove. At best, the average homeowner has a plunger, and that’s it. Professional plumbers have advanced tools at their disposal like hydro-jets, augers, and drain snakes to remove obstructions.
While clogged drains are a fact of life, you don’t have to waste time and money or risk your plumbing system to fix them. Call the professional plumbers at Jerry’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for safe, effective clogged drain repair.

Santa Maria Sewer Drain Service
Unfortunately, clogs don’t stop at your sink, shower, and tub drains. Sometimes, they happen in your sewer line, which can be tricky to fix.
The main sewer line can be blocked by tree roots, grease, hair, mineral deposits, and other stoppages resulting in sewage backing up into the home. With nowhere for the wastewater to go but back into the house, a sewer drain clog should be considered a plumbing emergency because of the potential health hazards, possible destruction of valuables, damage risk to your home or office, and more.
Another problem that results from blockages in the main sewer line is that it stops the drains throughout your house from emptying. Imagine not being able to flush the toilet, use the shower, sink, or any appliance that empties into the main sewer line.
A clogged sewer line requires the help of a professional with professional tools because it’s difficult to know exactly where the obstruction is and what material you’re dealing with. Our plumbers use endoscopic cameras to quickly identify the cause and location of the problem and devise the best, safest way to remove it.
