When it comes to owning a home, there are a number of repairs that you face on a regular basis. Unclogging your toilet or sink is one of the many chores that you are likely to be used to managing. There may come a time that you simply can't get the clog to budge. It is at that moment that you are likely going to decide it is time to call a professional in Calgary drain cleaning to get the job done for you. If you have tried all of the over-the-counter chemical options and plunged until you are blue in the face, you will want to enlist the help of a professional to get that clog to move on. Before you hire a Calgary drain cleaning professional for the job, you will want to take a few things into consideration.

The first thing to consider when hiring a Calgary drain cleaning professional to help you with your problem is whether they are licensed or not. Making sure that the professional that you are dealing with has a license is important. They should also be insured for any damages that they might cause in error. This is important to making sure that you are not stuck with a bill for having to fix the repairs that the professional did on the job. While they might be good at what they do, they still might have a bad day and make an error. If they do this and cause damage such as flooding or a need for additional plumbing work, you need the insurance to cover the expenses.

When hiring the professional for the job, they will want to look at the problem and assess where the clog might be. They will try all of the things that you tried and use some commercial grade clog remover. If these things fail for them as well, the Calgary drain cleaning professional will use a snake to try and remove the clog. A snake is a long coil like device that is attached to a drill like power tool. This is used to try and essentially drill a hole through the clog with the device. This is often an effective way of removing the clog, but should be done with caution. It is possible for the snake to get caught in the plumbing causing more damage. Allowing a professional with experience to do the job is going to be your best bet.

If this still does not remove the clog, the Calgary drain cleaning professional may employ the use of a camera for the job. This small camera is affixed to the end of a device that allows them to push it through the plumbing pipes to the clog. The camera then displays a picture on the monitor at the top of the opening so that the professional can see what is causing all the trouble. This will allow them to make some decisions regarding dealing with the problem. It will also help them to see exactly what the clog is made of so that they can figure out what tools will work best on it.

If the professional is unable to remove the clog easily, they might need to take out a portion of the pipe where the clog is located. This is often the easiest way to get to the clog and free it. However, removing the plumbing means replacing the plumbing, and you will want to be sure that the professional is licensed to do such a thing. The work involved in removing the pipe and replacing it could be substantial and the bill could be higher if this is the case. Talk to the professional before you allow them to start this work so that you know what you are facing.
