When Do You Need a Plumber for a Clog?

No one ever wants to experience a clog in their home or business, but no matter how careful you are, eventually, you’re probably going to have to deal with a clog. Many clogs can easily be cleared with just a plunger, but what do you do when you can’t unclog your pipe or drain yourself? The only thing left to do in that situation is to get in contact with a professional Maryland plumbing company. At Michael Runk Plumbing and Heating, we’ve dealt with more than our fair share of clogs across the state and wanted to speak about how you can know when it’s time to call in a professional plumber.

Have You Tried Plunging Your Toilet? No Luck?

We’ve all had to plunge a toilet at one point in our lives, but sometimes just using a plunger isn’t enough. You could find yourself plunging your toilet for hours with no success. If this is the case, it’s time to call in an experienced plumber. If the plunger isn’t working, then it’s most likely a pretty serious clog, and your toilet may need to be taken apart partially.

Has Something Been Dropped or Flushed Down the Drain?

Nearly all toilets and drains are only designed for human waste and toilet paper. When anything else goes down the toilet, the risk of a clog increases greatly. Children often put toys and other things down drains, so if you have kids around, you need to instruct them not to put anything in your toilet or down the drains, except for the normal waste material. If something has been put down your drain, you should try to get it back out immediately, and if you can’t, you’ll have to employ the aid of an experienced plumber in your area.

Have You Lost Something Valuable in Your Plumbing?

Dropping something of value, like a ring or necklace, down the drain is many people’s worst nightmare. But, it’s something that happens all of the time. Losing jewelry, or anything else of value, down the drain could cause a clog, and you need to get your valuables back! If you’ve accidentally dropped something down the drain that you want back, be sure to get in touch with a professional plumber so they can get it back for you!
