There are few mishaps in life more disgusting than a clogged toilet. When you flush the toilet and expect the water to swirl downward, only to see it rise, that is often a moment of panic. All you can do is hope that it doesn’t overflow while rushing to find something for the mess in case it does. Then, you’re left with the task of plunging and trying to clear the clog, while also trying not to be sick and make a bigger mess in the process. Overall, it’s a terrible experience that most people have had. So, why go through it at all? Instead, let a professional plumber handle it and do it even better.

The Trouble with a Clogged Toilet
Too many paper products are the most common reason for a clogged toilet. However, it is not the only reason. Like any other part of your plumbing system, a toilet becomes clogged for a number of reasons. All of the things that get flushed into your system have their way of leaving traces that clog your toilet system. Toilet backups can also be the result of a septic tank issue, too, which is a much bigger concern.
The best way to prevent clogs is to be vigilant about what you flush down the toilet. Use as little paper as possible, and never flush feminine products or baby wipes. Use flushable wipes sparingly, as even those can clog your system over time.
Let a Pro Unclog Your Toilet
The rare clog might be easy enough to plunge and be finished. But, if you experience toilet clogging on any regular basis, then you probably need the services of a professional plumber. A toilet that clogs often is a probable sign that your issue is more than a single blockage of paper. It is not good for your toilet to continue clogging, and for you to continue trying to plunge it.
A licensed plumber does more than plunge your toilet. Instead, a professional inspects your system for what is causing the backup. If your draining system needs a clean, then he or she will do that. In some cases, your plumber may need to look deeper into the system, and even check the septic tank.
