Why Drain Cleaning is Important

May 25, 2016

It’s springtime and homeowners in Naples have been organizing their closets, vacuuming the carpets, and giving the house a deep scrub. But what about your drains? You can’t forget to clean out your drains!

You most likely have a liquid drain cleaning product for when the the kitchen sink is backing up or the toilet won’t drain, but slapping a band-aid on the situation often won’t make it vanish. Plumbing problems that seem small usually end up being big problems if they aren’t resolved properly. Even if you think this issue is just a slow drain, it’s recommended that you have a professional drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t harm the entire system and result in a massive (and expensive) problem. Remember, no plumbing problem is ever too minor to require a drain cleaning.

There are multiple reasons why tub, sink, and toilet drains become clogged. For kitchen drains, the most common reasons are going to be pieces of food and oils. Make sure you turn on your garbage disposal and don’t put things like oils, vegetable peels, and rice down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For bathroom sinks, tubs, and showers, the main reasons for drain clogs will be hair build up, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your child missing some puzzle pieces or have you realized that you can only find one earring?) A seasonal drain cleaning by a local Naples expert will help keep these small problems from piling up and creating a huge plumbing nightmare.

Your toilet can also become clogged by the common issue of using a bit much toilet paper, but also from depositing things like hair, kitty litter, cotton swabs, or flushable wipes into the septic system.

If the pipes get clogged, by toys, hair, or anything else, it will probably also affect the water pressure balance of your total plumbing system. If you don’t take care of these issues right away by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, you may end up with cracked pipes. Or more serious, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without any water in your home.

Also, what drains down can occasionally come up. Regrettably, you could know this already with prior episodes with a clogged toilet, but it can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been doing the dishes after dinner and noticed the water wasn’t draining and that piece of meat you put down there a couple minutes ago is now floating around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first realize the clog, can avoid these occurrences completely and prevent your drains from getting clogged and causing a stench to back up into your home along with the water.
