The bathroom is the most important part of your home: the first place you visit when you wake up in the morning, and the last place you visit before going to bed at night. All of those uses mean that clogs and inevitable, and unfortunately bathroom clogs can be some of the toughest in your house.
Bathroom clogs are tough in part because they’re composed of materials that can be very hard to break up. Toothpaste, for example, can form a blockage with the strength of cement, while tangled human hairs are extremely hard to break. Add to that such materials as make up, toilet paper, human waste, and even children’s toys flushed down the drain (you’d be surprised how often this happens), and you have the makings of a serious clog.
Store-bought solutions usually consist of either a chemical cleanser or a mechanical snake, neither of which is especially effective in dealing with bathroom clogs. In the worst cases – such as a chemical cleanser attempting to dislodge a plastic toy – the results can be dangerous, and they rarely have the power to clear the entire clog away regardless.
Professional plumbers, on the other hand, can use efficient methods like motorized snakes and hydro jetting. That ensures that the clog is cleared away the first time, and won’t just re-form a few weeks or months down the road. Considering how stubborn bathroom clogs can be, and how much they can disrupt vital parts of your day, the professional touch is the ideal way to take care of them. They also have the experience to swiftly identify the cause of a bathroom clog and apply the proper solution.
