Why Drain Cleaning is Important

May 25, 2016

It’s spring and that means many homeowners in East Syracuse have been organizing their closets, mopping the floors, and giving their home a good 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 troubles that appear minor usually end up being big problems if they aren’t resolved properly. Even if you think this issue is 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 small to have a drain cleaning.

There are several reasons why your home’s drains become 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 most common reasons for drain clogs will be hair that has fallen out, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your child missing some action figures or have you found that you can only find one earring?) A seasonal drain cleaning by a local East Syracuse expert will help keep these little issues from piling up and creating a huge plumbing nightmare.

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, floss, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your total plumbing system. If you don’t resolve these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, you may end up with cracked pipes. Or more severe, your pipes could totally burst leaving you without running water in your home.

Don’t forget, what flows down can occasionally come up. Sadly, you could know this already with past experiences with a clogged toilet, but the same thing can happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been doing the dishes after a hearty meal and realized the water wasn’t draining and that piece of meat you put down there a minute ago is now back? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first see the problem, can avoid these situations entirely and prevent your drains from getting clogged and causing foul smells to back up into your home along with the water.
