The drains in your home are not something that is seen every day, so it may be easy to overlook them. However, there are some rather excellent benefits to keeping your drains well-maintained. This is because if they aren't cleaned, it could stop the flow of waste from moving through the home and into the sewer. When this happens, it's possible that the excess waste could cause your toilets, tubs, and shower to back up and overflow. Regular plumbing maintenance will also help to keep your drainage system working properly. The information below provides some information on the basic benefits of keeping your drains cleaned:
Blocked and Clogged Drains
There are various types of blocked and clogged drainage problems that could occur at any given moment. This ranges from having a clogged toilet, blocked plumbing pipes and clogged sewer lines. When the drain is blocked due to a buildup of materials that will not pass through the plumbing pipes, it's possible that this is from the overgrowth of tree roots or faulty pipes. If this occurs, you may need to have the extensive plumbing work completed by a contractor. Major repairs can be prevented, if you know the what signs to look for to determine if you may have blocked or clogged drains. For instance, the plumbing pipes in your home may make a knocking or whistling noise when the water is turned on. However, when you have your drains cleaned regularly, you can avoid these types of situations.
When you turn on the sink and the water pressure is so low that it takes forever to fill a tub of water, it's possible that there is something wrong with our drains. Keeping your drains cleaned out will help to prevent this from occurring and also the possibility of more damage to your plumbing system. For instance, the low pressure could cause excess water to build up in the plumbing pipes and possibly burst. Also, have the drains cleaned will also stop the spread of possible mold and mildew growth.
There is no way to determine what is clogged up in your drains without cleaning them out. However, there may be some rather unpleasant things that will create a foul-smelling odor in your drains if they are not cleaned out. This could also lead to sewer gnats flying around your sinks creating a nuisance.
If you are unsure how to go about cleaning out your drains, consider consulting with a drain cleaning contractor.Share
