Unblocking sewage drains is a job that should be left to professionals. However, this doesn’t stop there from being an abundance of articles on the Internet, informing you of what you need to do in order to unblock your drain yourself. Below, we are going to take a look at some of the most common myths and misconceptions that have arisen as a consequence.
One of the most common myths is that the best way to deal with blocked drains is to purchase one of the chemical solutions that are available on the market today. This is certainly not the case. If you don’t have any experience in drainage issues and are not qualified to use such chemicals, you shouldn’t go near them. Not only could you cause serious damage to yourself, but if you choose the wrong solution for the task at hand, you could end up making the issue ten times worse. Another common myth is that the best way to deal with a blockage is to push and prod it until it moves. This depends on the type of blockage you have. Professionals will have numerous drainage solutions they can call upon, ensuring they select the right method for the type of blockage in question. Pushing a blockage can end up making it even worse. Additionally, you can cause severe damage to your pipes by sticking things in them. Finally, just because something has ‘flushable’ written on the package doesn’t mean it is. Most wipes, despite what they say, aren’t flushable, so don’t put them down the toilet!
