If you are like most homeowners, you don’t think much about the drains in your Mesa, AZ home. As long as the water is draining correctly, you have nothing to worry about. It isn’t until the drains get clogged, and the water drains very slowly, or not at all. When this happens, it can make using the shower and the sinks difficult and even impossible. When you can’t use your sinks and showers, life in the home can become very inconvenient.
If you want to avoid dealing with slow or completely clogged drains, you should consider hiring a drain cleaning service on a regular basis. During the drain cleaning process, a plumber will run a drain cleaning machine through the pipes, which will clean them out. The plumber will also run a camera down the drain to do a complete inspection to make sure that the pipes are clear.
If you still aren’t sure if you need to have the drains cleaned in your Mesa, AZ home, you should consider all of the benefits of having it done.
Reduces the Chance of a Clog
When many people are dealing with clogged drains, they will go to the store and buy a liquid drain cleaner to remove the clog. Unfortunately, these products don’t always work. Also, they can do damage to the pipes. Because clogged drains can be so inconvenient, it is best to be proactive. When you have a drain cleaning service performed in your home, you won’t have to worry about a clog. If there is just a small amount of buildup in your pipes, it is only a matter of time before it becomes a full-blown clog. Having your drains cleaned will keep the pipes clear so that the water flows freely down the drain.
Eliminates Nasty Odors
Water is not the only thing that goes down the drain. When you take a shower, hair, soap scum, and other organic matter goes down as well. In the kitchen, grease, and food go down the drain. Even if you try to keep from putting these things down the drain, some will go down no matter how hard you try. There is no need to mention what goes down the toilet because that is obvious.
When these things go down the drains, organic matter can build up inside the pipes. This will cause bacteria growth, which can start to smell. Over time, the odor can be so strong that the entire room can start to smell.
When you have a plumbing service performed in your home, the organic elements will be cleared from inside the pipes, which will reduce the odor.
Prevent a Flood
If a sink or the toilet becomes clogged and water overflows, it can run onto the floors and behind the walls. These structures aren’t designed to withstand water, and permanent damage can occur. This can be a very costly repair. If you have a drain cleaning service performed in your Mesa, AZ home, you won’t need to worry about your drains becoming clogged, which significantly reduces the risk of a flood.
If your pipes become clogged, it is not uncommon for bacteria and mold to build up inside the pipes. This can be very hazardous to your health, and to everyone who lives in your home. Just standing over the sink or standing in the shower can expose you to these organisms, which can be harmful to your health. Certain types of mold and bacteria can cause respiratory issues, and some are even deadly.
When you have a drain cleaning service performed, you won’t need to worry about any mold or bacteria building up in the pipes. During the cleaning, anything stuck to the sides of the pipes will be washed away, protecting yourself and your family.
Saves You Money in the Long Run
Obviously, there is a fee for a plumber to perform a drain cleaning service in your home. However, the cost of an annual drain cleaning will be less expensive than the cost of having a plumber come to your home to remove a clog. A plumber will first charge you a fee for coming to your home. If you call for emergency service, it will cost more. You will also be charged a fee to have the clog removed. If the clog is located near the front of the drain, the plumber can remove it with a drain snake. If the clog is located further down in the pipe, it will be much more difficult for the plumber to reach the clog, and the process of removing it will significantly increase the cost of the service. If you have a drain cleaning service performed in your home every year, you won’t need to worry about the expensive cost of hiring a plumber for an emergency clog removal.
Keep Your Pipes Healthy
When grease, chemicals, and other material build-ups in your pipes, it can result in erosion and leaks over time. Whether it is a small or large leak, it can be costly to repair. Not only will you need to have the pipes replaced, but you will also need to pay to repair any water damage that has occurred. A drain cleaning service will remove anything that can erode your pipes, keeping them healthy.
