What would a commercial space be without a bathroom? Probably illegal, and borderline uninhabitable, but this isn’t a blog about legal problems.

A kitchen clog might seem like a common occurrence, but we want you to think about this type of problem. When your kitchen sink’s drain clogs up, you could start doing things and changing your behavior in ways that cause you to spend more money.

There are lots of hidden costs behind skipping things like calling for a plumber in West Palm Beach, FL. You might think you’re making a good financial decision buying your own drain snake and getting to work after a week of having your drain clogged, but you might be spending more money in the long run.
Let’s talk about some of the hidden costs that come with avoiding professional plumbing services.

Your drains aren’t as robust as you might think. Sure, they’re usually made out of copper or PVC piping which is sturdy and strong, but those materials quickly corrode when you start pouring strange chemicals down them. Think about it—no material in this world is safe from the effects of corrosion due to harsh chemicals. That’s why we think it’s so important that we make a small PSA in this blog post about the negatives that come with chemical drain cleaners. Your drains and your personal health are at risk when you use them.
We understand the drive for homeowners to find any cure for their drain clog that isn’t calling for professional plumbing in Port St. Lucie, FL, but that might be a very bad idea. For reasons we’re about to mention, calling a plumber might be your best, most effective option when dealing with a clog.

It’s no mystery why sewers are associated with foul odors. We see them in movies, TV shows, and we even read about them in books. While we like to think of sewer systems as completely separate from our homes, they’re really not. There are drains and other pipeline systems that lead directly into the sewer. Our home plumbing systems are like the veins that transport waste from our living spaces into sewer systems, so we need to start thinking about them as connected.
That being said, we get asked this question all the time. “Why doesn’t the sewer gas come up into my kitchen or bathroom?”
While the answer might seem simple, it’s a bit more complex and we’d like to explain why. We’re your go-to experts on all things plumbing in Port St. Lucie, FL and we’ll walk you through the magic of the P-trap!
