It is essential to keep your drains clean. Clean drains are necessary so that all of your wastewater flows away and doesn't accumulate in your home. Often, people don't realize their drains are dirty until they are faced with an emergency, such as a clogged sink. Getting your drains professionally cleaned, whether in the case of an emergency clog or as a preventative measure, offers many benefits for your home's plumbing system.
Stop Overflowing Sinks
Your sinks and tub get clogged up with water, and water can overflow when you have waste built-up inside of your pipes. When too much debris builds up, there is nowhere for your wastewater to go, or it can only make its way through at a much slower rate than you are creating wastewater when you wash your hands or wash your dishes in the sink.
When you get your drains clean, you will no longer have to deal with backed-up and overflowing sinks and tubs, as the water will be able to go down the drain at a steady rate as you use it.
Get Rid of Bacteria and Mold
When your pipes and drains are clogged up with debris, standing water can develop inside of your pipes. That standing water can create the perfect conditions for bacteria, mold, and mildew to thrive. Clogged drains create the perfect breeding ground for these harmful pathogens to thrive.
Cleaning your drains with the service of a professional plumber will eliminate the clogs and breeding grounds that allow mildew, mold, and bacteria to grow inside of your pipes and threaten your health.
When junk builds up inside of your pipes, it can do more than slow down the water that flows through them. It can lead to corrosion inside of your pipes as well, which can lead to water leaks. Water leaks can lead to water damage. Water leaks can also lead to a higher water bill.
One of the best ways to protect your pipes from internal corrosion, and all the consequences that come with that, is by keeping the pipes clean of junk that can damage the insides in the first place. Taking care of your pipes will allow them to last longer.
Eliminate Foul Odors
If you notice unpleasant odors when you are standing next to your sinks, that is likely because of the gunk built-up inside your pipes. Unpleasant odors coming from your drains are usually because of the decay process of whatever is junking up and clogging your pipes. Getting your drains professionally cleaned should result in better smelling drains and a better smelling house as well.
Emergency drain cleaning will stop overflowing sinks, eliminate mold and bacteria from inside your pipes, get rid of foul odors from your drains, and help protect the integrity of your pipes.
