Staying on top of your home maintenance can help keep your home in tip top shape and help prevent unexpected breakdowns and repairs. While not all home repairs can be prevented, many of them can with a regular service plan. Take your drains for example, regular drain cleaning can do a world of good for your plumbing system. Regular drain cleaning can help keep things moving and help you avoid costly repairs down the road. Here we make the case for regular drain cleaning, as part of your home maintenance program.


Prevents Clogs

Clogs are one of the most common plumbing problems. Regular drain cleaning is a good way to prevent clogs, especially if your plumbing is prone to clogs. During regular usage clogs can easily form from: hair, grease, food particles, and other debris. It’s important to keep things moving with regular drain cleaning. For really bad, continual clogs you may need more than routine drain cleaning. Video pipe inspection is a non-invasive way to get to the root of the problem (pun intended) without having to tear up any ground.


Eliminate Bad Smells

Nobody likes the smell of sewer emitting from their drains. The most common reason drains smell bad is a dried p-trap. Regular drain cleaning can help eliminate bad smells from your drains by continually cleaning the p-trap and insuring that there is a water barrier protecting against sewer gasses traveling back up through your pipes. Heavy commercial use, like with hair salons and restaurants, can cause frequent clogs, from hair and food, which can grow bacteria quickly leading to a bad smell. If you own a business you may want to consider regular drain cleaning to prevent bad smells from escaping from your drains.
