It’s springtime and homeowners in the U.S. have been organizing their closets, mopping the floors, and giving their home a good scrub. But did you forget to clean your drains?
You probably have a household drain cleaning product for when the bathtub won’t drain or the sink is backing up, but sticking a band-aid on the situation often won’t make it vanish. Plumbing problems that appear minor usually end up being serious problems if they aren’t resolved correctly. Even if you think this issue is just a slow drain, you need to have complete drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t ruin the entire system and result in a huge (and expensive) problem. Keep in mind, no plumbing situation is ever too minor to need a drain cleaning.
There are many reasons why your home’s drains become clogged. For kitchen drains, the typical reasons are going to be pieces of food and oils. Make sure you run your garbage disposal and avoid putting things like grease, vegetable peels, and pasta down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For bathtubs, showers, and bathroom sinks, the typical reasons for drain clogs will be pieces of hair, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your child missing some action figures or have you noticed that you can only find one earring?) A regular drain cleaning by a local the U.S. expert will help keep these minor situations from building up and creating a huge plumbing nightmare.
Your toilet can also end up clogged by the typical issue of using a bit much toilet paper, but also from flushing things like paper towels, kitty litter, cotton swabs, or flushable wipes into the septic system.
If the pipes get clogged, by toys, floss, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your whole plumbing system. If you don’t rectify these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, you may end up with cracked pipes. Or worse, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without any water in your home.
Also, what flows down can sometimes come up. Regrettably, you might know this already with past experiences with a clogged toilet, but backing up can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been cleaning dishes after a hearty meal and realized the water wasn’t draining and that piece of meat you rinsed down there a couple minutes ago is now swimming around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first see the problem, can avoid these occurrences entirely and prevent your drains from becoming clogged and causing foul smells to back up into your home along with the water.
