Man cleaning a drain in a kitchen

Clogged drains and pipes can be a major inconvenience and even a bigger problem to fix. Different types of grease, soap, hair and food particles are washed down the drain and through your plumbing system. Maintaining the drain pipes and scheduling professional drain cleaning services can help minimize significant problems in the future. Unchecked clogs can lead to buildup and corrode the pipes over time.

Some of the benefits of professional drain cleaning services are:

1. Prevent Foul Odour

If there is a musty smell coming from certain areas in your home, the issue might be with your drains. Regular drain cleaning can help remove debris such as food particles, grease or hair trapped in drains that can cause a foul odour. Blockages lead to stagnant water, which is a breeding ground for bacteria and mould. Sometimes the blockages can also be caused due to tree roots resulting in backups and bad odour. Hire a professional for regular drain cleaning and prevent these unpleasant smells. They will use a pressurized water system to remove debris and other particles that cling to your pipes.

2. Reduce Blockages

Drains are prone to be clogged over time. Frequent drain clogging might be due to the accumulation of fats, oils and grease. Although chemical drain cleaners offer a temporary solution, they can damage the pipes. They are also ineffective when dealing with large clogs. With professional drain cleaning, you can minimize blockages and have a faster, more efficient drainage system.

3. Understand Structural Issues

A professional plumbing contractor will be able to pinpoint the issues that lead to clogged drains. Scheduling regular drain maintenance will also help you catch smaller issues such as warping or corrosion before they lead to bigger plumbing problems.

4. Extend the Life of Drain Pipes

Over time, chemical buildup from grease and other deposits can cause the pipes to corrode, which eventually leads to leaks. Regularly cleaning the pipes will prevent chemical buildup and extend the life of your drain pipes.

5. Improve Home Environment

Drains are breeding grounds for mould, mildew and flies that can cause numerous illnesses and infections. Clogged drains can also lead to backflow – this wastewater is loaded with harmful chemicals. If a pipe bursts, you will be exposed to an unsanitary environment. Regular drain cleaning can help prevent such accidents and provide you with a cleaner living space.
