Why Drain Cleaning is Important

It’s springtime and homeowners in Columbus have been going through their closets, vacuuming the carpets, and giving their home a good scrub. But did you forget to clean your drains? 

You probably have a store-bought drain cleaning product for when the the kitchen sink is backing up or the toilet won’t drain, but sticking a band-aid on the problem often won’t make it vanish. Plumbing issues that appear minor usually end up being serious problems if they aren’t resolved correctly. Even if you think it’s just a slow drain, you need to have complete drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t cause damage to the entire system and result in a massive (and expensive) problem. Keep in mind, no plumbing situation is ever too small to need a drain cleaning

There are multiple reasons why household drains can end up clogged. For kitchen drains, the typical reasons are going to be fats and oils. Make sure you turn on your garbage disposal and avoid putting things like fats, eggs, and coffee grounds down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For For your showers, tubs, and bathroom sinks, the most common reasons for drain clogs will be pieces of hair, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your child missing some blocks or have you noticed that you can only find one earring?) A seasonal drain cleaning by a local Columbus expert will help keep these small problems from piling up and creating a huge plumbing nightmare. 

Your toilet can also end up clogged by the typical issue of using a bit much toilet paper, but also from flushing things like paper towels, band aids, cotton swabs, or flushable wipes into the septic system. 

If the pipes become clogged, by food, kitty litter, or anything else, it will most likely also affect the water pressure balance of your entire plumbing system. If you don’t address these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, you may end up with cracked pipes. Or worse, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without working water in your home. 

Don’t forget, what flows down can sometimes come up. Unfortunately, you may know this already with prior incidents with a clogged toilet, but the same thing can happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been cleaning dishes after a hearty meal and saw the water wasn’t draining and that potato you put down there a couple minutes ago is now back? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first notice the back-up, can avoid these occurrences altogether and prevent your drains from getting clogged and causing foul smells to back up into your home along with the water.
