Whether you’re dealing with a smelly kitchen drain, a clogged bathtub, or pipes that are continually making noise, a trusted professional can help take care of these issues. Sure, you can buy those as-seen-on-tv snake drains or use chemicals that are said to clean your drains but that often ends up being costly and ineffective.

Here are some reasons why you should choose a professional for your drain cleaning:

  1. Cost-Effective
  2. Prevent Damage to Your Pipes
  3. Reduces Clogs


If you’re trying to clean your drains yourself, the process is not only time-consuming but costly as well. When you hire a professional, you know exactly what to expect. They’re trained on doing the job efficiently, have all the proper tools, and can give you a clear estimate of how long the process will take. For example, if the clog is too far in your pipes to see, a professional may need to do a video camera inspection to identify the problem and where it’s located.

Prevent Damage to Your Pipes

Trying to cut costs can possibly lead to major issues later on. Drain cleaner sprays and foams often contain harsh chemicals that can eat away at your pipes. If used repeatedly, they can cause your pipes to leak or crack which can create serious damage to your home and require them to be completely replaced. These chemicals can also be toxic if they build within your pipes and cause issues like rust which can breed bacteria.

According to Home Advisor, the cost of installing or replacing plumbing in your home ranges from $357 to $1,955. But if your entire home needs new plumbing, it can cost between $7,500 and $15,000 depending on the size. By hiring a professional, they’ll clean your pipes properly and be able to spot issues you may not be aware of. In addition to preventing any unnecessary damage, this will also help your pipes last longer.

Reduces Clogs

While certain products can remove temporary clogs like food or hair that has collected near the top of your drain, there may be serious issues with your pipes that will need to be treated properly to prevent future clogs. As food particles get stuck in your drain, it can cause mold to grow, further damaging your pipes and causing your home to smell. A professional will be able to easily remove any build-up from food, hair, grease, oil, dirt, and more. This will help with the flow of water throughout your home and make the system more efficient.
