Drain cleaning services are something you should schedule on an annual basis for your home’s plumbing system. There are many benefits to regular drain cleaning and we are highlighting the top three ways that drain cleaning can benefit your home and family.

Even if you’ve never had a drain cleaning service before, now is a great time to schedule one.

Prevent Clogs

The number one reason to schedule regular drain cleaning is to prevent tough clogs. When clogs develop, they can allow water to back up into the drains around your home. This may seem like a fairly minor inconvenience, but these backups can allow bacteria and bad odors from the sewer lines to back up into your home and put your family at risk of getting sick.

Having a clog in a single drain is concerning enough, but having clogs that impact your entire home can point to a much larger problem that needs to be addressed. With regular drain cleaning services, you don’t have to worry quite as much about clogs because our team is helping to break down build-ups year after year so it never has a chance to develop into anything serious.

Plumbing Lifespan

Clogs are not just annoying. They are also very detrimental to your plumbing system. Build-ups can corrode pipes and that means you need to replace materials sooner rather than later. As part of drain cleaning our team uses a snake tool to get rid of build-ups even if you don’t have clogs yet. Clearing away this build-up helps your pipes to enjoy a longer lifespan.

You also have to consider the benefits of professional drain cleaning vs. a DIY solution like chemical drain cleaners. When you use abrasive chemicals to break down clogs those chemicals can also damage your plumbing system itself. The abrasiveness can even leave a residue behind that makes clogs more likely to happen again in the future, although that sounds counterintuitive. 

Save Money

Being proactive and scheduling a drain cleaning service now is better than waiting until you have an issue that needs to be addressed. Putting off service can mean you spend more on a tougher problem to address later. When you take steps to prevent clogs all along, preventative service is less costly. 

Later on, we may need to take steps to complete repairs to your plumbing or even replace parts if they wear down enough. Regular maintenance also saves you money over having to replace your entire plumbing system sooner rather than later.
