Annual Drain Cleaning Benefits
Drain cleaning is an important task for any home or business, and should be preformed on a regular basis. Oftentimes homeowners want to take the matter into their own hands and perform plumbing maintenance, particularly drain cleaning, on their own. Skipping out on professional services does NOT work with plumbing, and can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs in the long term.
The best way to get around this is to hire a professional plumber to take care of your drain cleaning needs each year. They can handle the task for homes and businesses alike, so don’t hesitate to let them know what you need.
Preventing a clog is a major benefit of drain cleaning for homes and businesses. This may not sound like a big deal but when you’re experiencing a clog or major piping system backup you’ll understand why it is so important. A plumber can ensure that your pipes are thoroughly cleaned and free of anything that could cause a clog down the road.
Most clogs don’t form overnight so it is important to ensure that any thing that could potentially become a clog is taken care of as soon as possible. Oils and food particles should never be thrown down the drain.
Assessing Your Drainage System
In addition to simple drain cleaning, a plumber will typically take the time to do an inspection of your piping system to make sure that everything is running smoothly if you let them know that’s what you need. This can be a big help when it comes to detecting leaks, cracks, and other problems with your pipes.
Corrosion can also be a huge factor when it comes to plumbing issues and is something you’re going to want to get taken care of before it becomes and issue. Make sure you ask your plumber about inspecting your home the same day as your annual drain maintenance service.
Don’t Neglect Your Toilet
Toilets tend to get clogged more than other drainage systems mainly due to the fact that people tend to flush items that they aren’t supposed to. Just because a product says it’s “flushable,” doesn’t mean it is. Avoid moist wipes and very soft toilet paper brands to prevent clogging.
Have your toilet’s drainage system cleaned annually by a plumber, along with the rest of the drains in your home or business. This will prevent any larger, more expensive plumbing and property damage problems in the future.
