Does Your Plumber have a Drain Cleaning Certification?

Does your plumber have a drain cleaning certification? Let’s face it. When he’s in the middle of unclogging your pipes it probably isn’t the best time to ask. But, you should know before letting any service technician into your home. Licensing, insurance and certifications can protect you if there’s an accident or injury while work is being performed.


So, how do you know if your plumber has a drain cleaning certification?

Drain Cleaning Certifications


Your plumber should have their certification posted on their website (we have it on ours). It should list their certifications. Whether through the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) or another organization. If it’s not on their site, ask about it. And, check their references on the Better Business Bureau website, Yelp and Angie’s List.


Here at G&C Plumbing & Heating, our plumbers are all licensed and highly-trained professionals. Our plumbers go through a training program. They have to demonstrate their proficiency in servicing, maintenance and plumbing repairs. They also have to demonstrate that they are competent and knowledgeable.


Two of our employees, Brandon and Chris, were recently trained and tested for drain cleaning. They both received their certificates of completion. And, we’re quite proud of them!


Do You Need a Drain Cleaning Service?


There are a few ways to try to unclog a drain. You can try using a plunger to remove the blockage. But, if that doesn’t work, we tell customers to contact us for drain cleaning repairs.

Signs of a clogged drain include:

  • Water that’s slow to drain in the tub, sinks or shower.

  • Standing water or puddles in the sinks, shower or bathtubs.

  • Toilet water that bubbles or gurgles when water is drained from the bathroom sink.
