The Benefits of a Clean Drain
Regularly maintaining your home’s drains is an easy and affordable way to prevent clogs. It also gives your plumber the chance to diagnose other drain related plumbing issues your home might be facing before they get even worse. If you have any first hand experience with a drain clog, you already know that the immediate benefit of having clean drains is not having to deal with standing water after washing the dishes or taking a shower. What you might not realize, however, is that there are long term benefits associated with having clean drains as well.
This might sound obvious, but when your drains are clear, it’s much easier for water and other liquids to flow through them. Without debris and other particulates blocking the flow of water, you won’t have to worry about standing water, flooding, or backups when you go to draw water.
Drain cleaning is the number one way to prevent clogs from forming in the first place. Clogs are formed when there is a buildup of debris and other particulate matter blocking a significant portion of your drain line which leads to a back up. By flushing out this debris before it gets the chance to culminate, you’ll be saving yourself from a drain related emergency in the future.
Prevents property damage
Store bought drain cleaners should be avoided at all costs. They corrode the interior of your pipes, weakening them over time until they finally break completely. A broken pipe can cause flooding in the home, drastically lower water pressure throughout your home, and potentially expose your family to unsanitary water. Not only that, but these repairs are also incredibly expensive.
Professional drain cleanings, on the other hand, do not rely on chemicals and instead manually dislodge any clogs or build ups using drain snakes or water jetting. These methods do not damage your home’s piping and are much more affordable in the long term.
