5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Put Off Drain Cleaning

If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. This is a common phrase used as a solution to many situations. However, it shouldn’t be the answer when it comes to cleaning your drain. Cleaning your drain once per year can prevent major problems and save you time and money down the road. Check out the five reasons below and see the benefits of having your drains cleaned.

Locate Cracks and Openings Sooner – Damage to your home can be avoided if you discover a crack or opening early. If the crack or opening is deep in the drain, it could be difficult to discover it until damage has already been done. With the help of technology, you can discover these problems before it’s too late. When conducting your drain cleaning, you can add a video inspection of your main line. A plumbing technician will send a camera down into the main sewer line to determine if there are any cracks or openings. This is a good idea for those who own older homes or if you have large trees on your property.

Saves You Money – Not maintaining the cleanliness of your drain can cost you money in the long run. Waiting until there is a clog or problem will not only cause a messy and frustrating situation, but it will cost you money to have it professionally fixed.

Clogs and Frozen Pipes – A thorough cleaning will remove tree roots, clogs and other debris from your drains. Roots are able to grow inside of your drain, increasing the chances of clogs and freezing pipes. These growing roots will also make your sinks and showers slower. A cleaning will reduce the chances of clogs and frozen pipes and give you better water pressure.

Damage to Your Home – A clog in your sewer line can result in raw sewage backup coming out of the drains causing significant damage to your home. No one wants a problem like this, especially if it can be avoided with a simple cleaning.

Mold – Mold can be hazardous to your health and a pain to get rid of. All this fungus needs to grow is water and debris such as dust. Discovering a leak early can also prevent mold from growing.
