Waterman – Toronto ‘s Drain Service Company of Choice!
When you have a problem with the drains in your home, it is necessary to call a drain service in Toronto. A drain clog is no small matter. Each year millions of homeowners attempt to fix a clog themselves and ultimately end up causing more damage to their pipes. Every drain situation is different, which is why you should contact Waterman to help you restore natural flow through your drains.
You should first consider the severity of your drain clog. If your water is draining slowly or not at all then it is time to contact Waterman. There are a few things that many people do which you should not before calling the professionals. The first is using commercial drain cleaner. Many people think that this is the solution to their clog problems. The chemicals in these cleaners are very harsh and can actually cause damage to certain types of pipes. You should always let a professional determine if commercial drain cleaner is the right choice for you. The second thing that people do is attempt to snake a pipe and actually make the clog worse by not using the snake properly.
If you are interested in calling for a drain service in Toronto and not sure who to call then ask for references from your family and friends. Any credible company should have a list of customers that are willing to offer referrals on hand for the more selective consumers. There are also several websites online which allow consumers to write reviews about companies that they have used in the past. The referral based marketing on the internet has taken off in recent years and is becoming the primary source of information for consumers who need services and are not sure who to call.
Be sure to contact two or three drain cleaning companies in Toronto companies and compare their prices and service time. If your drain clog is a serious issue, then it may not be able to wait a week or more until professionals can get to your house. At the same time, even if a company is the best of the best, you do not want to feel like you are being gouged in the price you are paying for your drain service. Finding a happy medium will lead to a happy homeowner.
Once you have had drain cleaning performed, you can start to maintain your drains yourself with a few easy steps. Be sure to regularly clean out your drain stopper and drain traps of any debris. For most households, chunks of food, hair and miscellaneous items like toothpaste caps are what most often end up stuck in a drain. Avoid dumping food or grease down a drain as well. Any substance that is sticky or could solidify in a thick manner should not be put down the drain. It is very important to clean your drains with a simple solution of warm water, vinegar and baking soda at least once per week to yield the best result when performing a drain service. This also does not involve any harsh, toxic chemicals that may be difficult to breathe in.
I called several plumbing/drain companies for an estimate to unclogg my bathtub drain and Jim was the most reasonable in price. I found Jim to be very punctual, quick and efficient. I also had Jim quote on two much larger drain jobs, he took the time to professionally explain the scope of work needed with diagrams and gave a fair price.
The owner, Jim, was recommended to us by a friend who had a damaged (roots) sewer line, as we did, and used his services. We have nothing but good things to say about Jim and his crew. From the onset Jim was prompt, straight forward and very transparent about options.
