3 Reasons Why You Need A Plumber To Unclog Your Toilet

Blog

Homes and business alike depend on working toilets for anyone who comes inside. Without a working toilet, you would have to figure out another way to go to the restroom. Instead of trying to handle the clog on your own, you can turn to a plumber to come out and get to the bottom of it for you. They have all the necessary tools and techniques to come in and get it taken care of without causing any damage to your toilet or your system.  Here are some common reasons why it is in your best interest to bring in a plumber.

Using something more than a simple household plunger can cause extensive damage to your toilet.

If you have a simple plunger at home or in the office, you can try that first. However, you shouldn't do anything beyond that. Attempting to use drain snakes and a bunch of chemicals will only end up causing a number of problems to your system and toilet, especially when you have no idea what you are doing with them in the first place. The professional versions powered by a small motor tend to work the best, but they shouldn't be handled by anyone other than a licensed plumber.

It might be much more than just a simple clog.

A clogged sink or toilet could be more than just a small clog that needs to be flushed out. It could be something wrong with your sewer lines that needs to be taken care of. These lines can end up sustaining damage from corrosion, tree roots, and much more. If that happens, a clog is typically going to be your first sign that something is amiss. The plumber can determine if there is something more than just a simple clog when they come out to take care of the problem.

There is a chance that the toilet could end up backing up and overflowing everywhere.

Trying to unclog the toilet with something other than the plunger could end up causing the clog to get worse and overflow into your home or business. You don't want wastewater backing up inside of your space. It can be a major health hazard and something you don't want to mess around with.

When you look at the information above, you can easily see why it is in your best interest to hire a professional plumber to come take care of the clog for you.
