Few things are more frustrating than a clogged drain in your home. Is your kitchen or bathroom sink draining slowly? The best way to avoid a plumbing emergency is to proactively have professional drain cleaning. You’ll save money in the long run and avoid a late night or holiday weekend plumbing call. Here are just some of the benefits of drain cleaning by the expert plumbers at Cool Blew.
What goes in your drain may eventually cause a slow or blocked drain. Mineral deposits, hair, food, and soap scum can build up inside the pipes, restricting water flow and potentially backing up your drain. Clogs show up as slow drainage. And many clogs will not resolve through plunging. Brand name drain cleaners contain chemicals that are not only harmful to your plumbing system; they’re also harmful to your health and the environment. When your drains are professionally cleaned, it’s more effective and safer than pouring in liquid drain cleaner or using a plunger.
Stop Fruit Flies and Drain Flies
You’ll find fruit flies on over ripe fruits and vegetables not refrigerated. The fermentation process attracts these bugs. You will find these insects hovering near your sink or around your house. Phorid or scuttle flies feed on decaying matter in your pipes, and these insects run rapidly across surfaces rather than flying to escape. Drain flies gorge on the debris that builds up on the inside of drains. Sewage or septic leaks feed another type, called coffin or mausoleum flies, which can emerge back up the pipes and fly out of drains. To the untrained eye it can be difficult to distinguish these types of flies. That’s when it’s time to contact a professional plumber as there may be broken underground pipes to repair and just cleaning out the sink trap may not resolve the situation.
Bacteria and mold thrive in clogged kitchen and bathroom sinks. Stinky odors emanating from food and organic debris decaying in pipe drains can cause foul odors throughout your house. Clearing the standing water inside your pipes prevents the growth of bacteria, mold, and the associated unpleasant smells.
Pipe corrosion and leakage happen when organic materials and chemicals get trapped in your pipes. Over time, this can potentially cause slab leaks and burst pipes which are expensive to fix. Having a trusted plumbing contractor you can count on to inspect and maintain your drainage system is the best solution—saving you money and time. Removing blockages and attending to small leaks, regular drain cleaning, using high powered water to wash the insides of your pipes and performing a video inspection of the drain lines, are what professional plumbers do best.
