Every system in your Bedford, TX home needs routine maintenance to function correctly and efficiently. Many homeowners have their HVAC systems maintained regularly; however, many people overlook their plumbing system. You rely on your plumbing system multiple times a day; therefore, routine maintenance is essential. One great way to ensure your plumbing system always functions properly is having a drain cleaning service performed. If you are unsure whether a drain cleaning is worth the time and cost, you should consider the ways your home and family can benefit from having this service performed.
#1 Prevent Slow Drains
When grease, food, hair, and soap go down the drain, a clog can form. Small clogs can cause the water to drain slowly, causing the tub to fill with water while you shower, leaving you standing in several inches of water by the time you finish. In addition, washing the dishes can be challenging when the water drains slowly because running the water can cause the sink to overflow.
If you have a drain cleaning service performed, the clog will be removed safely, allowing the water to flow freely down the drain.
#2 Prevent Standing Water
A significant clog in the drainpipe can make it impossible for the water to go down the drain, and you won’t be able to use the tub, sink, or washing machine. A drain cleaning service can remove the entire clog safely, allowing the water to drain. In addition, having a drain service performed regularly will remove small clogs before they escalate to a major clog, preventing the water from going down the drain.
#3 Prevent Noisy Drains
Do the drains in your home gurgle when the water goes down? If so, you may have a serious problem. When large clogs build up in the drainpipe, the water will need to change directions to get through the drainpipe. When the water changes directions, it creates air in the pipes, causing a gurgling sound. It is easy to ignore this issue; however, letting it go for too long will result in a completely clogged drain, and the water won’t go down at all.
A drain cleaning service will remove the clogs in the drainpipe and will quiet your drains.
#4 Prevent Frequent Clogs
Have you noticed that the drains in your home become clogged frequently? Are you using a liquid drain cleaner only to find the clog returns? There is a reason for this. Liquid drain cleaners can break up a clog allowing the water to drain; however, there is no guarantee the entire clog has been removed. If it hasn’t, it won’t be long before the clog returns, and the water drains slowly again.
Having a drain cleaning service performed will ensure the entire clog has been removed and take care of the frequent clogs once and for all.
#5 Multiple Drain Clogs
A sink or tub drain is a frustrating problem; however, if the toilet, sinks, and bathtub drains are all clogged, you have a serious problem on your hands. When every drain in your Bedford, TX home is clogged, it can make life in your home very inconvenient.
Multiple drain clogs signify a clog in the main drainage line or the main sewer line. Fortunately, these clogs can easily be removed during a drain cleaning service. When the plumber finishes, the water will flow freely down every drain in your house.
#6 Eradicate Foul Odors
Do you smell something foul in your kitchen and cannot find the source? If so, your drains could be to blame. When food and grease clog the drain, it can start to spoil, creating a foul odor. There could also be mold growth in the pipes that not only smells bad but can also be hazardous to your family’s health.
Having a drain cleaning service performed regularly will remove clogs and mold from the drainpipe, and your kitchen will smell fresh and clean again.
#7 Rid Your Home of Fruit Flies?
Fruit flies may be tiny, but they are still a major nuisance. If you have a fruit fly problem in your kitchen and don’t have a bowl of rotting fruit or a vase of dying flowers on the counter, they could be coming up from the drain.
When food and grease clog the drain, it creates the perfect environment and breeding ground for fruit flies. There are DIY remedies to rid your home of fruit flies; however, these remedies are just temporary solutions. If you don’t use the DIY remedy daily, the fruit flies will return.
The best way to rid your home of fruit flies for good is by having a drain cleaning performed regularly. During the drain cleaning, the plumber will remove the clogs, even the smallest ones, and your drains will no longer be a hospitable environment for fruit flies.
#8 Prevent Toilet Overflows
The toilet in your home can become clogged when you flush something down the drain that you shouldn’t have. The same is true if you flush too much waste and toilet paper down the toilet.
In many cases, the clog can be removed with a plunger. The plunger will break up the clog enough that it passes through the drainpipe. If you tried the plunger and you still can’t flush without the toilet overflowing, you should schedule an appointment for a drain cleaning service. The service will allow the plumber to find the location of the clog so it can be removed, allowing you to flush the toilet without worrying about it overflowing, causing a flood in your bathroom.
