A blocked drain seems like a simple thing to solve, and sometimes it is. But if you have a recurring clog that stubbornly persists, it is time to call a plumber! Here are some of the top reasons you should only hire a licensed plumber.
Grease, fat, and bits of food are common causes for blockages in the kitchen, while hair and soap scum are often bathroom culprits. These blockages can occur close to the drain hole but they’ll often travel further into the pipe and lodge in places that are hard to reach.
Tree roots are another common cause of blockages. They seek out the nutrient-rich waste that accumulates in the pipes and will grow into the pipes to get to it. As they grow, they cause more damage. Deep clogs and tree roots are best left to industry professionals like Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning.
A licensed plumber has all the specialized equipment needed to clear your blocked drain, whether it’s blocked by waste, tree roots, or other obstructions. Should anything get damaged while repairs are being done on your property, a licensed and insured plumber is your guarantee. Your homeowner’s insurance is also more likely to cover repairs done by licensed plumbers.
Licensed plumbers have to pass a criminal background check which means peace of mind for you to have them in your home.
When your plumber waves that piece of paper under your nose, he is telling you important things about himself and the quality rooter services that he offers, for example:
A clogged drain isn’t the worst plumbing problem. Because of this, it’s tempting to call the first number that comes up and hope for the best. But if you use an unlicensed plumber, what are some of the things that can go wrong?
A plumber armed with a plumbing license is one you can trust to get the job done, and done right. Like 007 of the movies, a licensed plumber comes with all the gadgets. While the movie gadgets are made-up, a plumber’s gadgets are tools that have been tried, tested and proven to be effective, reliable and safe.
