Why Drain Cleaning is Important

May 25, 2016

It’s that time of year when homeowners in East Syracuse have been organizing their closets, mopping the floors, and giving the house a deep scrub. But did you remember your drains?

You most likely have a liquid drain cleaning product for when the bathtub won’t drain or the sink is backing up, but slapping a band-aid on the situation often won’t make it vanish. Plumbing issues that appear minor usually end up being major problems if they aren’t resolved properly. Even if you think it’s just a slow drain, you should have an expert drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t ruin the entire system and leave you with a massive (and expensive) problem. Remember, no plumbing situation is ever too minor to have a drain cleaning.

There are several reasons why your home’s drains get clogged. For kitchen drains, the typical reasons are going to be pieces of food and oils. Make sure you start your garbage disposal and don’t put things like oils, vegetable peels, and rice down the drain because they will all create chaos for your pipes and other plumbing components. For For your showers, tubs, and bathroom sinks, the main reasons for drain clogs will be hair that has fallen out, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some action figures or have you found that you can’t find your favorite bracelet?) A regular drain cleaning by a local East Syracuse expert will help keep these small problems from piling up and resulting in a huge plumbing disaster.

Your toilet can also get clogged by the common issue of using too much toilet paper, but also from depositing things like hair, kitty litter, medication, or flushable wipes into the septic system.

If the pipes get clogged, by toys, hair, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your total plumbing system. If you don’t address these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it may result in cracked pipes. Or more severe, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without working water in your home.

Also, what goes down can occasionally come up. Unfortunately, you could know this already with previous incidents with a clogged toilet, but it can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been doing the dishes after a hearty meal and saw the water wasn’t draining and that potato you put down there a minute ago is now floating around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first realize the clog, can avoid these issues altogether and prevent your drains from clogging and causing foul smells to back up into your home along with the water.
