If this sounds familiar, it’s time to trade in the DIY solutions for professional drain cleaning services. A major red flag that you have a clogged drain is the persistent return of your issues. It’s difficult to realize how severe an issue is if it goes away for a while. That’s why we encourage you to call us at Prime Plumbing in Glen Burnie, MD as soon as you see an issue. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your plumbing.

Common DIY Drain Cleaning Mistakes

Before you try to fix your clogged drain, you should know what not to do. Not all DIY drain cleaning solutions will help your situation. Sometimes, they’ll make it worse.
  • Don’t DIY your equipment. If you want to snake your drain, buy or rent an actual drain snake. Don’t try to make one yourself. You don’t want to risk damaging your pipes or getting something stuck.
  • Don’t reach for the chemical drain cleaner. Drain cleaners are convenient and inexpensive, but cause problems. The chemicals can damage your pipes, and might not actually work for your clog.
  • Don’t disassemble your sink. Leave this to the professionals. It may seem easy to take your sink apart, but putting it back together properly is much harder.

Uncommon Items That Clog Your Drain

Everyone knows common substances that clog drains, such as grease, oil, and hair. But what about the not-so-obvious ways your drain can get clogged? Here are a few:
  • Toys- if you have small children in your home, beware of toys getting flushed down the toilet. Once they’re in the pipes, you’ll need a professional to get them out.
  • Cement- Did you know that old pipes that aren’t used anymore get blocked off with cement? They do. Unfortunately, the cement can end up in working pipes and cause blockages.
  • Cat litter- This is one of the worst things you can pour down the drain. Cat litter, by design, clumps when it comes in contact with liquids. All cat litter should go in the trash.

What to Expect During a Visit From Prime Plumbing

Identifying the Problem

Staying local made sure that I was taken care of once again. Called on a Thursday and they had someone out by 8am on Friday. Al did a phenomenal job! I explained the issues, he gave me 4 different solution options with pricing, answered all my questions, kept everything clean and sanitary, and was so kind. Job was completed the same day and was reasonably priced. As a single female I didn't feel like I was manipulated for extra services or overpriced, I was treated with complete respect. I'll certainly use them again!

The whole process was very easy. From making the appointment online and the confirmation via text message, they sent me a photo of the plumber who was going to come to my house. The day of the appointment the plumber called me to tell me that he was on his way. Upon arrival at the house he was very professional and courteous. He explained everything to me in great detail. I recommend this company 100% and they accept all kinds of payments plus a guarantee on the job for one year.

Sam came out for the estimate and recorded everything they were going to do along with taking photos. Job was redoing feed and drain lines under the sink, and installing a new dishwasher and disposal. Called on Monday to schedule once the dishwasher was delivered, and they had us booked for the next day. Al showed up on time for appointment, completed all work quickly, leak checked, ran washer and disposal to verify correct operation, took photos to document, and packed out all the debris. Under $900 parts and labor, including new cutoff valves, new washer feed line, new sink trap, removal and reinstall of disposal and dishwasher, including supplies. Charged exactly what was provided on the job estimate. Highly recommended.

I absolutely recommend Prime Plumbing. I called them after seeing positive Google reviews. The office agent got an appointment 3 hours after I called. The technician called me 5-10 minutes before arrival. Will, the technician was super professional and thoughtful about the space. He wore the disposable shoe protectors as to not bring the outdoors inside. He was mindful not to use machinery that would harm my home. He also answered my questions with a friendly and pleasant demeanor. The problem was fixed and I was so happy. 5 stars!

A real person answered the phone at 4:30 pm and not a long voicemail. It was easy to schedule an appointment. Information regarding upfront consultation fee was provided during the phone call. Reminder text message was sent one day before the appointment. On the day of the appointment, an additional text message with the picture of the plumber who is coming was sent. Overall a very pleasant experience. Our plumber was knowledgeable and professional. He also made sure to put on booties which I really appreciated
