Don't Let A Clog Drain Your Energy

drain cleaning

Every homeowner should regularly clean their household drains. If you do not clean your drains on a regular basis, it can lead to damaged pipes, foul odors, and sometimes health problems. Clogged drains can cause plumbing issues as well such as decreased water pressure. Broken pipes could cause an overflow of water that can cost extra money to repair the damage than originally budgeted. Clogged drains can also harbor bacteria, which can end up causing health problems such as respiratory issues or headaches. The benefits for cleaning out your drain pipes on a regular basis can reverse or help control damage that could be sustained if left untreated.

Reducing The Amount Of Harmful Bacteria

One benefit of performing a yearly drain cleaning is that it removes harmful bacteria that become trapped in the drains. Dirty drains are known to trap and promote the growth of bacteria that can be harmful if they are inhaled. Trapped bacteria can also lead to foul odors coming out of the drains throughout your house as well. These odors can permeate the walls and carpets, making it difficult to eliminate odors. Routinely cleaning out the drains will prevent the buildup of sludge and other debris that can trap harmful bacteria.

Preventing Drain Pipes From Busting

Another benefit from annual drain cleaning is it will prevent your pipes from becoming damaged such as leaks or bursting. Over time, harsh chemicals will settle in your pipes causing buildup and eventually corrosion. When this goes untreated, the corrosion will cause the drains to leak and possibly burst. Slow leaks and burst drains can cause major damage to the structure of the house or damage to the appliances. Also, as trees and shrubs mature, their roots can grow under the yard and grow into the pipes. This can also cause drains to rupture. Annual drain cleanings will prevent further corrosion and could stop your house from being flooded from burst pipes.

Removing Foul Odors

Drains that are located throughout the house can become clogged with a lot of debris. For example, bathroom drains can have a buildup of hair, soap scum, or toothpaste while kitchen sink drains can have a buildup of food particles or grime.

Over time, the debris can lead to strong odors that can permeate throughout your home. By having your drains cleaned annually, this will prevent strong odors and keep your home smelling clean.
