The Hidden Cost of a Kitchen Clog

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. For instance, having a clogged kitchen drain means you’re less likely to cook and clean, so you might end up ordering take-out for the whole week while you debate calling a plumber.

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.

Plumbing Services Are Important

There’s a myth going around online that makes people think they’ll never need to contact a professional plumber. You’ve probably seen DIY tutorials, videos, and all sorts of things with clickbait headlines that say “you’ll never need to call a plumber again!” It’s time to face reality and come to the understanding that you’ll never be able to go without plumbing help in your home. Likewise, the longer you go between calling for professional plumbing help, the more money you could be paying.

Here are just a few ways that a kitchen clog can cost you down the line.

  • Inconvenience. Inconveniences cost money. It’s why we buy efficient cars and we tend to live in neighborhoods where we can walk to a store. The more inconvenient it is to do something, the more likely we are to pay for a way around it. If your drain isn’t working because of a clog, you’ll be more inclined to order take-out, clean and cook less, and spend money out of the house because you don’t want to deal with a problematic kitchen drain.
  • More build-up. Leaving your clogged drain alone doesn’t help. In fact, it might make things worse. Due to temperature fluctuations in your pipes, your drain clog could be further solidifying and hardening with every day.
  • Stress. Leaving an entire kitchen sink alone because it’s clogged can be stressful. Especially if you care about the appearance of your home and hosting get-togethers. That stress can manifest in costs like spending more time at someone else’s home ore hosting parties and get-togethers at restaurants.
  • It could be a more sinister problem. Sometimes drain clogs might seem like simple problems, but they’re actually a lot more complicated. Take for instance if all of your drains are starting to slow down or clog in your home. This isn’t a simple drain clog, this is more likely a problem with a clogging sewer or septic system. These problems can be very bad for your home when left neglected, which is why professional help is always appropriate to take a look and investigate the issue.
