How Often Should Drains Be Professionally Cleaned?
It is recommended that you have your home’s drains cleaned, at minimum, every two years. However, your specific plumbing setup will determine the frequency that is right for you.
If your plumbing system is older or prone to clogs and backups, you may find that yearly drain cleaning is necessary. Our Raleigh drain cleaning plumbers will inspect your plumbing system and provide you with their honest guidance.
Why You Should Avoid DIY Fixes
Everyone has experienced a clogged drain at some point. When this happens, people tend to reach for the plunger or chemical cleaner from the hardware or drugstore.
However, this often doesn't adequately treat the problem, and their drain becomes clogged again in relatively short order. Professional drain cleaning is the only way to ensure that a clog is being managed effectively.
Signs That You Need A Drain Cleaning, Include:
- Frequent backups in your sinks and drains
- Chronic plumbing leaks
- Foul odors coming from drains
- Gurgling drains or drains that work very slowly
- Several drains are clogged in your home at the same time
Dangers Of Untreated Drain Clogs
Drains that are not cleaned regularly are more susceptible to breaks and leaking. As we use our drains, grease, oils, detergents, and waste can buildup in our pipes. This results in clogs, and when those clogs aren't cleared, rust and corrosion are soon to follow.
Additionally, outdoor plants and trees are responsible for root intrusion on your outdoor pipes, further leading to clogged, slow-moving drains. Once a drain is clogged, it is best to bring in a professional plumber to resolve the issue. However, there are some maintenance steps you can take to prevent and avoid future clogs.
How To Prevent Clogged Drains:
- Be mindful of what you put down the kitchen sink and garbage disposal, i.e. pasta, coffee grounds, and grease all have the potential to lead to a nasty clog
- When running your garbage disposal, have cold water flowing into the disposal to help break down the food
- Run hot water in your home’s drains once a week to help dissipate any debris that may have started to accumulate in the lines
- Purchase a drain stopper, grate, or screen to catch any hair or soap residue that may flow down the drain and eventually lead to a clog
- Avoid flushing certain items down the toilet, i.e. too much toilet paper, dental floss, feminine products, and even some “flushable wipes”
Even with preventative care, there is still a potential for a clog or blockage to form in your drain lines. Try to avoid delaying a professional cleaning, as the clogs can worsen leading to more damaging and expensive issues.
Why Invest In A Video Camera Inspection?
When you hire us for professional drain cleaning in Raleigh, our plumbers can perform a video camera inspection of your plumbing system. This inspection will tell us where your drains and pipes are suffering from buildup and clogs. We will then be able to perform our services more accurately, and clear any blockages more effectively.
These video camera inspections are also a window into the health of your plumbing system, giving us a real-time look at the condition of your drains, pipes and sewer lines. This is a separate service that, if requested, can be performed during your drain cleaning service.
