Don’t let drain cleaning mistakes lead to expensive damage!

When it comes to your plumbing system, keeping your drains clean is a very important part of preventative maintenance. Without drain cleaning, not only are you at a higher risk of getting clogs, but you are also likely to come into contact with dangerous bacteria and mold. However, if you don’t know what you’re doing, a simple drain cleaning mistake could lead to big issues down the road. Check out our latest blog to learn about the drain cleaning mistakes that we’ve already gone over. Keep reading for more drain cleaning mistakes to avoid:

#3. Disconnecting your pipes.

If something gets put down your drain and stuck in your pipes, you should never try to disassemble them on your own. If you don’t have experience with plumbing, it’s all too easy to make a mistake when disassembling and reassembling your pipes. In fact, rather than fixing the original problem, you are likely to cause more damage, which can lead to costly repairs.

#4. Putting foreign objects down your drain.

Although a drain snake can be a helpful tool for cleaning your drains, you should never try to use a makeshift drain snake, like a wire hanger or any other tool. Makeshift tools just aren’t effective, and unfortunately, if you end up dropping your tool down the drain, you’re likely to end up with a much bigger problem on your hands.
