Is Professional Drain Cleaning Worth It?

Here in sunny Anaheim, where Barker and Sons have been unclogging drains for years, there’s a story I often share. It’s about a confident homeowner, let’s call him Dave.

Dave thought, “How hard could it be?” when facing a clogged kitchen sink. He armed himself with a bottle of chemical drain cleaner and a YouTube tutorial. Little did he know, he was about to turn a small problem into a plumbing catastrophe.

The Hidden Costs of DIY

As a mother and a seasoned plumbing professional, I can tell you that the initial cost of DIY drain cleaning seems low – a bottle of chemical cleaner here, a plumbing snake from the local hardware store there, but the real cost lies hidden. Dave learned this the hard way when his pipes, weakened by harsh chemicals, started leaking, causing water damage. And the water leaking out of his pipes was now full of dangerous chemicals.

The repair bill? Let’s just say it was more than a pretty penny.
