If you’re dealing with a drain blockage, you’ve likely done a bit of research to determine whether you can tackle the problem on your own. While it may be possible to clear a minor drain clog by yourself, nine times out of ten, amateur techniques don’t deliver long-term results.

That’s because drain clearing and drain cleaning are two distinct processes, both of which require professional expertise to be successful. Before you attempt to take action on that blockage, take a moment to learn which approach your drain requires, and who is most appropriate for the job.
