Why Drain Cleaning is Important

It’s spring and that means many homeowners in Columbus have been going through their closets, vacuuming the carpets, and giving their home a good scrub. But what about your drains? You can’t forget to clean out your drains! 

You may have a liquid drain cleaning product for when the bathtub is backing up or the kitchen sink won’t drain, but slapping a band-aid on the situation often won’t make it go away. Plumbing troubles that seem small usually end up being big problems if they aren’t properly resolved. Even if you think this issue is just a slow drain, you should have thorough drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t ruin the entire system and turn into a huge (and expensive) problem. Don’t forget, no plumbing situation is ever too insignificant to need a drain cleaning

There are several reasons why household drains get clogged. For kitchen drains, the usual reasons are going to be fats and oils. Make sure you run your garbage disposal and don’t put things like grease, vegetable peels, and coffee grounds down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For bathroom sinks, tubs, and showers, the most common reasons for drain clogs will be hair that has fallen out, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some puzzle pieces or have you realized that you are missing a necklace?) An annual drain cleaning by a local Columbus expert will help keep these minor situations from building up and resulting in a huge plumbing nightmare. 

Your toilet can also get clogged by the typical issue of using too much toilet paper, but also from depositing things like floss, diapers, cotton balls, or flushable wipes into the septic system. 

If the pipes are clogged, by napkins, kitty litter, or anything else, it will most likely also affect the water pressure balance of your whole plumbing system. If you don’t take care of these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it could leave you with cracked pipes. Or more serious, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without any water in your home. 

Remember, what flows down can also come up. Regrettably, you may know this already with past episodes with a clogged toilet, but it can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been washing dishes after a big meal and noticed the water wasn’t draining and that vegetable you stuck down there a few minutes ago is now floating around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first notice the back-up, can avoid these occurrences entirely and prevent your drains from clogging and causing a stench to back up into your home along with the water.
