3 Reasons Why Drain Cleaning Is Critical For Home Maintenance

By July 10, 2019Plumbing Services

As a homeowner, you’re likely aware that it takes a significant amount of maintenance to keep everything in good condition. Your drains are no exception. Seemingly minor issues such as slow drains can quickly become big problems if you ignore them. So, don’t neglect your drains and have them routinely cleaned by a professional.

Why it’s important

Maintain your drains properly and you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • Longer drain life and fewer repairs. Common sense prevails here, as healthy drains mean longer-lasting drains. Damage and corrosion can occur when left untreated. Depending on the severity of the problem, you may be faced with having to replace the drain or invest in a major repair. Save money and headaches by investing in preventive care.
  • Better drainage. The entire point of a drain is to, well, drain unwanted liquids away from your home! Clogs and blockages are common in drains that aren’t taken care of properly. So you could potentially be standing in water up to your ankles in the shower. If you’re familiar with this situation, you know it’s not a pleasant experience.
  • No foul odors. The accumulation of food and waste particles in your drains can result in unpleasant odors. Nobody wants bad smells coming up from their shower or kitchen drains, so have them cleaned on a regular basis.

Bieg’s services

While basic daily drain maintenance is crucial, you should still have them professionally cleaned at least once a year. This ensures they’re in great working condition and issues can be discovered before they turn into major problems. Bieg Plumbing offers the following services for residential drain cleaning:

  • Cabling. For this service, a cable with a cutting head attachment is snaked through your pipes to clear clogs. A video camera can be fed through later to ensure the pipe is clear, giving you greater peace of mind about your lines.
  • Hydro jetting. Pressured water is sent through a line to completely clean and degrease it. This is an extremely effective and heavy-duty solution that is also safe for all pipes and doesn’t require the use of potentially harmful chemicals. It’s also a job that won’t take much time, yet will provide long-lasting results. This makes hydro jetting a fantastic option for residential and commercial property owners alike.
