Drain Cleaning: Don’t Forget About It

If you think about it, you could probably come up with a list a mile long of things in your house that you don’t keep up with: dusting baseboards maybe, or washing curtains. One thing that may miss your list is cleaning your drains. We understand why. They’re dirty and smelly, but you absolutely cannot neglect the cleanliness of your drains.

A drain isn’t just a hole in your sink. That hole goes somewhere. Your sink drain, your shower drain, your toilet, your dishwasher, your washing machine; that all has to go somewhere. Home drains, typically made of a heavy cast iron or copper, are built to withstand heavy usage. Think of how many items in your home drain water and then think about what goes through them. House drains are gluttons for punishment. In consideration of all the abuse your home drain takes, this is something you definitely should not neglect. According to housetipster.com, there are 5 very important reasons why you should clean your house drain every year.


Typically, minor drain backups in the sink or shower, stemming from food or hair, can often be treated with your run of the mill store-bought drain cleaner, but things tend to get messy, not to mention expensive, when sewage and debris build up. When you have a clog that you can’t cure, a solid drain cleaning will save you a lot of stress and money in preventing severe plumbing problems down the road.


Drain clogs not only slowly or present water from going down, but they also cause unpleasant odors that carry throughout your home. These odors, especially sewer odors, are extremely pungent and they are hard to get rid of. The sure fire way to ensure this doesn’t happen to you is to get yearly drain cleanings.


When water isn’t moving properly through your drains, the cleanliness of your home is at risk. Stagnant water is a breeding ground for bugs, bacteria, and a host of germs. Yearly drain cleanings will reduce the chance of harmful bacteria forming and jeopardizing your family’s health.


At the time of your annual drain cleaning, you can ask your technician to check your sewer lines. Over time, sewer lines can rust, leak, or become penetrated by tree roots. Being proactive and getting these inspections early and often can save you from an expensive pipe replacement.


Drainage issues can also cause problems outside your home. Drain blockages can cause standing water that can lead to soil erosion, slippery surfaces, mold growth, breeding for mosquitos, and decay of plant life. If you notice pooling or puddling of water on your property, it could be due to a drain blockage and should be addressed immediately.
