It happens all too often, your drain is clogged and you have tried everything and cannot relieve the clog, so in exasperation, you finally call your local Collinsville plumbing company. We are here to tell you that you don’t have to wait until you are frustrated and your plumbing system is showing symptoms to call in a 24-hour plumber. At Culler Plumbing Services, we offer professional drain cleaning services to the residents of Collinsville and the surrounding Metro East Illinois area.

In today’s post, we are going to visit just a few reasons that you should enlist the services of your local plumber for drain cleaning regularly, rather than doing it yourself.

Before we dive right in, let’s discuss some of the differences between professional drain cleaning and what you can do yourself at home. Professional drain cleaning includes a variety of safe plumbing techniques that can accurately and effectively remove the clog without damaging your drains or pipes. We use camera inspection technology to find the clog and formulate the best plan to remove it. While the camera is in your plumbing system, we can also find other issues. If the clog is the typical buildup of hair, soap, and dirt, we can easily use a motorized drain auger. For tougher clogs, we can use water jetting services, that when done correctly, can remove foreign objects, stubborn sludge, hardened scale, grease, and even tree roots. We guarantee our work and have more than 25 years experience, so you can rest assured that your plumbing system is in good hands.

Prevent Damage

To the average homeowner, the clogs are what is causing damage to their residential plumbing system. However, a lot of the times, it is what homeowners do to attempt to relieve it that cause the majority of the damage. Common damage related to drain cleaning includes harsh chemicals corroding the pipes, which can actually break down the pipes and cause costly leaks, without even relieving the clog! Some homeowners attempt to push the clog through the pipes using high water pressure, which can cause your pipes to burst. And, worst yet, some homeowners will disconnect the pipes to gain better access to the clogs, which may work. However, putting the pipes back together can cause leaks that cause severe water damage.

Work is Guaranteed

One of the biggest advantages of having your plumbing system professionally cleaned is that the work is completely guaranteed. A trustworthy plumbing company will be licensed, bonded, and insured to protect you, your home, and the plumber performing the work, so you won’t have to worry. If anything does go wrong, the plumbing company has an obligation to fix it. Whereas, if you do it yourself, you’ll still have to call your Collinsville plumbing company to come to make repairs after the fact. At Culler Plumbing Services, we go a step beyond and offer a satisfaction guarantee.


If the fiscal and safety advantages of professional drain cleaning aren’t reasons enough, perhaps the convenience is! Most homeowners do not have the tools or skills required to safely and effectively relieve tough clogs and must do research and purchase supplies. When you call a professional plumbing company, you get the plumbing service you need, without having to do it yourself! That means you don’t have to concern yourself with whatever is causing the clog or cleaning the inside of your pipes.

How to Know You Need Professional Drain Cleaning Services

As we mentioned earlier, you don’t have to wait until there are symptoms to have your residential plumbing system inspected and drains cleaned. If you have owned your home for a few years and have never had your drains cleaned, we can do a camera inspection and let you know what we find. This way, we can prevent symptoms of backups by taking care of the issue before it becomes a big problem. If you are already having plumbing problems, some of the indications that you need professional drain cleaning services include sluggish or slow drains, clogged drains, or drains that backup.

At Culler Plumbing Services, we have been offering professional drain cleaning services to the residents of Collinsville and the surrounding Metro East Illinois area for more than 25 years. We have the tools and skills necessary to quickly clean your pipes and relieve even the toughest clogs. We come prepared with a fully stocked plumbing van and, because we charge by the job, not the hour, you can be sure that the job will get done quickly.
