Can I get rid of clogs on my own?
In today’s “do-it-yourself” world, when your drain line backs up the first thing that may come to mind is “I’ve got this.” You make a visit to the store to purchase some liquid drain cleaner, come home and pour it down the drain, and then wait for the magic to happen.
In some cases, liquid drain cleaners can provide a quick but temporary solution. If you are having back-ups, there is an issue with your drain line and the severity of the issue could vary greatly. There could simply be a backed-up sewer line, but it could also be a broken pipe, or there could be something lodged deep in the drain. Unfortunately, liquid drain cleaner won’t solve any of these issues.
If you decide to give the “do-it-yourself” liquid drain cleaner approach a try, be sure to exercise caution because the chemicals can irritate your skin, eyes, and nose. And, unless you want to be on a perpetual cycle of temporarily clearing the clog and heading back to the store to make another purchase when it happens again, you should consider calling Advanced Drain Line Solutions to have your lines cleared in a professional, safe, and effective manner!
