There’s never a good time to have a clogged pipe, but during the winter could be one of the worst. Don’t be a hero and try to clear the drain yourself just to save money. A professional will do the job quickly and with more lasting results, and that’s a better investment in the long run for your Lawton home.

5 Good Reasons NOT to Do It Yourself

1. It’s gross

Clearing a drain can be a truly disgusting job. You never know what you’re going to pull out of there, and you never really know if you’ve got it all.

2. It’s really gross

Seriously. There are often unpleasant odors associated with clogged drains. And those odors may stick around after the drain appears to be unclogged.

3. You may not solve the real problem

Without a professional’s tools and knowledge, you may be clearing the drain well enough for now, but the root problem may persist. That means you’ll be at it again before long. Not only that, but attempting to solve your plumbing issues without proper plumbing knowledge could actually exacerbate the situation.

4. You could make things worse

If you have not taken care of the real problem then it’s going to continue and get worse. By the time you realize your efforts have been unsuccessful, the problem may have become more complicated, taking a plumber more time and costing you more money.

5. There’s a reason you don’t work at a home improvement store

If you wanted to spend all your time in the plumbing section of your local hardware or home improvement store, you probably would’ve gotten a job there. Besides, the cost of all those new tools adds up, and there’s a good chance you’ll never even use them again.

5 Good Reasons to Call a Professional

1. We’ve seen it all

There’s pretty much nothing an experienced plumber hasn’t seen, so don’t worry about the embarrassment of having a professional clean out your drain. Those years of experience also mean the expert you call will know exactly what to do for your particular situation.

2. Honestly, we’ve seen everything

In case you don’t think we were serious, it’s true. We’ve literally seen everything. We can’t be grossed out and we won’t judge you.

3. We’ll solve the problem

You can count on a professional to get to the root of the matter, whether it’s a simple clog, corroding pipes, missing parts or leaks. When the job is done, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing it will last.

4. We’ve got all the right tools
