The Importance of Drain Maintenance

The drains in your home take daily abuse with all the food particles, grease, soap, dirt, and grime that are flushed into it. It’s nice to think all that residue gets washed away, leaving your drains clean and shiny; however, over time, buildup occurs. Inside the pipes, sludge and mineral deposits form that slow drain flow, eventually cause backups, and have the potential to cause pipes to leak or burst.

The Benefits of Drain Cleaning

Now that you know how buildup happens, you need to think about prevention and maintenance. By keeping up with maintenance services, you avoid messy blockages that can be expensive to fix. Other benefits include:

  • No foul odors
  • Faster drainage and avoiding standing water
  • Extends lifespan of your drainage system by preventing damage

By keeping your drains well maintained and clean, your system is far more likely to last several years longer and not give you any problems at all in the meantime.

Drain Cleaning Frequency

The standard recommendation for drain cleaning as maintenance is once each year. To find out for sure, speak with one of our experts about your lifestyle and the size of your home. If you live alone in a small house, you might be able to get away with drain cleaning every few years.

As always, be conscientious about what gets put into your drainage system. Remove hair from sinks or tubs and avoid dumping coffee grounds into kitchen sinks. Run hot water into all drains on a weekly basis to help break up and prevent accumulation. A bit of common sense goes a long way to prevent clogged drains in conjunction with cleaning maintenance.
