It’s that time of year when homeowners in the U.S. have been going through their closets, steam cleaning the carpets, and giving the house a deep scrub. But what about your drains? You can’t forget to clean out your drains!
You probably have a store-bought drain cleaning product for when the bathtub won’t drain or the sink is backing up, but putting a band-aid on the situation often won’t make it go away. Plumbing problems that seem small usually end up being serious problems if they aren’t resolved properly. Even if you think it’s just a slow drain, it’s recommended that you have complete drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t cause damage to the entire system and turn into a massive (and expensive) problem. Keep in mind, no plumbing issue is ever too minor to require a drain cleaning.
There are many reasons why your home’s drains get clogged. For kitchen drains, the usual reasons are going to be food and grease. Make sure you turn on your garbage disposal and try not to throw things like grease, eggs, and rice down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For For your showers, tubs, and bathroom sinks, the main reasons for drain clogs will be hair build up, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some blocks or have you noticed that you are missing a necklace?) A seasonal drain cleaning by a local the U.S. expert will help keep these little issues from accumulating and turning into a huge plumbing disaster.
Your toilet can also end up clogged by the common issue of using a bit much toilet paper, but also from putting things like floss, band aids, cotton balls, or flushable wipes into the septic system.
If the pipes are clogged, by napkins, floss, or anything else, it will most likely also affect the water pressure balance of your complete plumbing system. If you don’t take care of these issues right away by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it may result in cracked pipes. Or worse, your pipes could fully burst leaving you without running water in your home.
Don’t forget, what goes down can also come up. Sadly, you could know this already with past incidents with a clogged toilet, but backing up can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been doing the dishes after a hearty meal and noticed the water wasn’t draining and that potato you stuck down there a few minutes ago is now back? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first realize the back-up, can avoid these situations completely and prevent your drains from clogging and causing odor to back up into your home along with the water.
