How Professional Plumbers Clear Drain Clogs

Despite commercials and advertisements that indicate liquid drain cleaners eliminate drain clogs, licensed plumbers will tell you otherwise. Professional plumbers do not recommend these toxic products to homeowners because they are generally unsafe, and because they simply do not work in most cases. Instead, professional plumbers have the right tools and expertise to locate and remove all sources of clogging. Here is the process many plumbers use to extract blockage.

Finding the Source

First, the plumber will assess the location of the clog. If slow drains are confined to a bathroom, there is probably no major blockage in the main sewer line that leads to your home, and a plumber knows to address the biggest problem area first. The type of tool a plumber uses also depends on what type of blockage is clogging your drains. Common sources of clogs such as hair, tough buildups of mineral deposits, or even tree limbs in the sewer line may all require different equipment.
