Homeownership can absolutely be wonderful and rewarding. It can also be a real budget stretch at times. So, we get why it’s tempting to watch online tutorials and do the job yourself instead of calling a plumber in Corvallis, OR, from Linn-Benton Plumbing. But certain drain cleaning methods, like drain augering or snaking, can be risky if you go the DIY route.
Scratching Interior Pipe Surfaces
Snaking a clogged drain too aggressively could leave you with scratched drain lines, and this could lead to rusting. If you regularly snake your drains yourself, this rusting could weaken your pipes and contribute to cracks and leaks. The pipe could even burst during the colder months of the year.
Worsening the Clog
Choosing DIY snaking over professional drain cleaning in Corvallis, OR, could push the clog down further instead of clearing it away. This can happen if you encounter a blockage and feel it dislodge and assume it’s been cleared away. What you could actually be doing is moving it deeper into the drain line. Our trained technicians have specialized camera equipment that can be used to confirm that a drain line has been fully cleared.
Drilling a Hole into Pipe Curves
If you’re inexperienced with drain snaking, you may not know the difference between running into a clog with the end of your auger and hitting a pipe curve. If you apply too much pressure with the end of the auger, you could drill right through a drain line curve – and have an entirely new problem to deal with, as well.
Let Our Team Safely Clear Your Drains
Linn-Benton Plumbing is the drain cleaning company you can rely on to safely clean, unclog, and clear your drains. If pipe snaking isn’t right for your needs, we may recommend a more powerful drain cleaning method known as hydro jetting.
When I called and told them my water heater was leaking they sent over a technician right away. Miles, the technician was professional, respectful and knowledgeable. He completed the job quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend this company.
Linn Benton Plumbing Was definitely a good experience. I had an underground leak beneath our back deck. Not an easy repair. Miles was the plumber, he was able to pull the deck apart and dig down to repair the leak. He finished the project that day. What a relief. I would recommend Linn Benton Plumbing and especially Miles to anyone.
John and his crew are very professional. I spoke with John, I told him my problem, and he came over in the last minute before we were leaving on vacation. We so appreciated his quick response and he had our problem fixed quickly. Awesome folks to work with.
We live in Albany OR. Our garbage disposal stopped working, Jon came out determined the cause (short in the motor) and installed a new disposal. He arrived when he said he would, fixed the problem quickly, and was meticulous in his work. My wife was thrilled at how clean he left the work area.
