Most people will take matters into their own home when it comes to maintenance, especially to save money. If it’s just a simple clog, a quick use of a plunger could be an easy fix. But sometimes small problems can hint to a larger issue somewhere in your system. That’s when it’s more important than ever to call a professional.
Plungers are a Temporary Fix, Not a Permanent Solution
If you’ve tried using a plunger or even an auger to remove what you thought was a simple clog and that didn’t work, it’s probably time to call in a professional. When this happens it’s likely the source of the issue lies beyond the reach of a plunger or auger. If you start seeing water backing up into other drains in your home when the toilet flushes, you’re probably have a more serious issue that needs professional attention.
Flushed Foreign Objects Flushed Down Your Pipes
Life happens and sometimes your belongings end up in your toilet bowl. Foreign objects are often the culprits of toilet clogs that you can’t diagnose or plunge away. They can even cause damage to your sewer septic lines if they get too far. Hiring a pro would solve your issues like this in the most efficient way, as well as protect your pipes and plumbing from experiencing further damage if attempted unclogging is done incorrectly.
Hidden Issues within Your Pipes
If you can’t see an issue but can smell it, there’s problem a hidden issue you need to take care of. This could include a hidden leak behind a wall or beneath the floor causing unseen and sometimes irreparable damage. A smell may be the result of mold which ultimately causes respiratory issues. If you suspect a hidden issue, your best course of action is consulting a professional. There’s little that you can do on your own and you certainly don’t want to go and cause further damage.
