Drain cleaning is an important part of maintaining a healthy plumbing system. Even the best cared for plumbing systems are at risk of clogs and will accumulate gunk and buildup over time. Often people just clear out clogs without really cleaning out the pipes.
The Sewer Stench
Your drain feeds directly into the sewer, so when a drain gets backed up or clogged the water that would normally end up in the gutter before it starts to smell, sits in the pipes and sometimes comes back into your home. That smell travels through pipes and creates a sour intolerable stench in the drain and home. Drain cleanings can not only remove clogs but the smell that lingers in pipes and spreads into your home.
The Health Risk
Working water and drainage systems are critical to all homes and businesses. Backed up pipes can lead to flooding and even bursting pipes. Your pipes are needed to flush out they are the home to use water that is contaminated with bacteria and other harmful things. When your pipes are backed up, they are more likely to retain and return these harmful bacterias to the inside of your home. While most clogs may only slow the draining process, a bad clog can spread that discarded and contaminated water through the sink and end up on the floor in the walls putting you, your family and pets at risk.
The Potential Cost
Having bi-annual cleanings can not only fix current problems but spot potential problems. Using drain cameras, plumbers look inside the pipes to look for obstructions such as tree roots and identify weak parts of the pipe. Through the identification of these damaged areas early you can avoid costly reactive repairs by scheduling a spot repair or replacing the pipes before they break down causing damage to your system and home.
