What Are The Advantages Of Regular Drain Cleaning?

regular drain cleaning

Your drain plays an essential role in removing waste from your home and into the sewer system. Keeping it clear and free of obstructions will prolong the efficiency and lifetime of your plumbing system. We have discussed signs your drain needs attention, drain cleaning methods and things you can do every day to keep your drain clean. Now we will discuss why this is important and how you will benefit from staying proactive about taking care of your drain system and getting it cleaned regularly. 

More Efficient Drainage

Cleaning your drains on a regular basis will cause them to drain more quickly and efficiently. This will prevent those pesky, slow drains that can cause interruptions to your daily activities or affect the productivity of your business. A clean drain will be less likely to overflow or develop standing water, or in the case of toilet fixtures, clean drains will prevent unwanted backflow. This in turn will keep your drain pipes intact and lasting longer.

Prevention of bigger and more expensive problems 

Over time, drains can become seriously clogged by buildup. This is to be expected especially for heavily used drains in busy households or in commercial establishments. Cleaning your drains on a regular basis reduces the risk of a severe clog that can cause damage, leaks and eventually a pipe to burst. These serious issues are also much more expensive and time consuming to fix, compared to a simple drain cleaning. 

Frequent clogs, unpleasant odors, bubbling or gurgling sounds are just some of the symptoms that your drain needs attention sooner than later. Ignoring these signs may leave you with drain pipes that will need to be replaced completely. 

Prevent Damage to Your Home

Clean water alone can cause a lot of damage to your property – destroy floors, walls, furniture and invite mold to grow and spread. While this can be costly to repair, a leak from a drain full of waste is even more detrimental, as this water is loaded with harmful chemicals and bacteria. Keeping your drains clean will prevent drain pipes from bursting and allowing this unsanitary water to flood your property and destroy your belongings.

Prevention of Foul Odors

A dark and damp environment within your drain system, creates the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria which in turn create nasty smells that can creep into your home. Regular flow of water may not be enough to wash down these spores, therefore a thorough cleaning is necessary to prevent mold from growing, thriving and stinking up your home.

A cleaning of your drains also means ensuring that your p-trap does not dry up, allowing harmful sewer gases to enter your property. This would not only cause unpleasant smells in your home or business, but be very harmful to your health.
