Nobody likes having to deal with plumbing problems, especially when it comes to things like clogged sinks and toilets that just don’t seem to want to flush.
Fortunately, the good news is that a number of plumbing problems, including slow-running and clogged drains, can be prevented with regular drain cleaning. In fact, annual professional drain cleaning has a number of benefits, and today we’re going to talk about a few of the best.
Benefit One: Say Goodbye to Slow-Running Drains
When your drains are partially clogged or plagued with sediment buildup, it means that water can’t flow freely, and you end up with standing water in the sinks, tubs, and showers.
Professional drain cleaning can remove the clogs and buildup that lead to slow-running drains, leaving you with water that’s available on demand, and drains that are able to clear water from the basins immediately.
Benefit Two: Bid Farewell to Clogs
Full-on clogs are never fun, because they lead to toilets that don’t flush properly, sinks, and tubs that don’t drain at all. Clogs in your plumbing can be caused by a number of things, including:
- Soap scum
- Lost objects
- Tree roots
While a plunger is acceptable for smaller DIY plumbing projects, only professional drain cleaning will get to the root of larger problems. Along with being able to diagnose a clog, a plumber will also be able to locate the source, identify underlying causes, and remove the clog quickly and efficiently without causing further damage to the pipes.
Benefit Three: Say Good Riddance to Funny Plumbing Noises
Plumbing clogs sometimes have another unexpected consequence: annoying noises in the pipes.
For one thing, buildup in the pipes can create a great deal of pressure when water pushes through at a high rate, and this can create an irritating squealing whenever you run the water.
Moreover, clogs can also cause bubbling and burbling noises when you flush the toilet or run the water in any room.
Benefit Four: Welcome Lower Water Bills
Another unexpected side effect of unclean drains can be a higher water bill.
For one thing, unaddressed clogs and sediment buildup can lead to other problems, such as weakened pipes and corrosion.
Left untreated, these problems can create leaks and bursts, and that’s a problem that you’ll see reflected in your water bill.
Benefit Five: Say Hello to Sanitary Water
Another consequence of slow-running and clogged drains is standing water, and in places like the kitchen especially, this can create an unsanitary environment for cleaning and food preparation.
Along with being a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and fungus, standing water can also house pathogens that can make your entire family sick.
Drain cleaning will remove the blockages that are causing the standing water, leaving your Calgary, AB house cleaner and safer for friends, family, and visitors.
These are just five of the benefits of regular professional drain cleaning and maintenance, and there are many more reasons why you should take care of your drains right away in the New Year.
Along with having sinks and toilets that flush and drain properly, you’ll also have lower water bills, a cleaner house, and fewer headaches when you go to cook, clean, bathe, or otherwise use the water in your house.
