When you own a home, one of the key responsibilities is preventative maintenance, including the pipes and drains from appliances, air conditioners, furnaces, toilets, sinks, showers and baths. Most of the time this can be done simply and easily by the homeowner, but a professional drain cleaning is a good idea once a year to guarantee that your home’s pipes and drains are sludge-, root-, food-, hair-, debris- and pest-free. The alternative can be an extremely costly repair situation.
Homeowners can buy drain filters that help keep shower and kitchen sink drains relatively free, but what happens if tree roots push their way into your home’s larger water or sewage pipes? This is a job for a professional licensed plumber who has the necessary equipment to handle this level of blockage.
Professional drain cleaning entails the use of many different sized brushes, blades, cables and pressurized water jets to slink around curves, slice through tree roots and handle the most stubborn clogs. They can also handle rodent nests, thick sludge and debris buildup that over-the-counter liquid plumbing products can’t begin to tackle.
If you’re experiencing strong odors, sluggish drainage or constant dripping from your air conditioning units, it’s time to call in a professional. If your home is connected to a city or town sewage or water system, they can be called for advice, but if your home has its own septic system, it should be professionally inspected every two years. Postponing professional drain cleaning can lead to significant repair costs, not to mention the environmental damage to your property and possibly your neighbor’s as well.
