Most of our customers are busy with their daily activities for the entire year. They focus on a lot of things except one important detail they always forget – the drains or sewer system’s maintenance. Having the drains regularly checked is important to avoid having problems and spending so much in the future. Clogged drains can be caused by different factors and can be a challenge.
One of the nightmares we dread to hear is someone at home saying that the water is not going down or the drain is clogged and it is never fun to try and fix it.
The good news is that nobody has to suffer this as long as the drains are kept clean and clog-free. The common causes of clogged drains are dirt, hair, flushed feminine hygiene products, cottons, dental floss, and even flushed wet wipes.
Whether in health or at home, prevention is still the best way in avoiding problems like this. The use of de-clogging products like strainers, plungers, hot water, dishwashing liquids, or chemicals may help in the de-clogging process but a professional advice would be needed to avoid it from becoming a recurring problem.
Areas that have drain problems include the bathrooms in particular. The shower area and the tub where hair usually accumulate are very prone. Kitchen sink where leftover foods go, toilet, bathroom sink, the downspout, which clears out the water from the roof gutters where leaves and stem accumulate over time, and the drains located in the basement, which is forgotten most of the time, are the usual spots.
Regular drain cleaning is necessary to remove the clogs and make sure that the drains flow smoothly. This will also prevent problems in the future. By regular cleaning, the chances of blockages occurring every now and then is reduced. Whether it is a small or big problem, it can accumulate over time and can cause the water to overflow.
A regular drain cleaning schedule will also reduce the foul odor problem that is common from leaking or damaged sewer pipes. Keeping the drains clean will eliminate not just the blockage but also the smell that comes with it.
A clean home is not enough to protect families from getting sick. Although unseen, drains can also cause sickness especially if it is clogged. The accumulation of dirt can be a breeding ground for bacteria and infections. Furthermore, cleaning drains can also help you save a lot of money. Clogged drains can cost you a fortune as it can lead to serious problems like overflowing drains and sanitary problems. It can also cause damage to the property if not dealt with immediately.
