It’s spring and that means many homeowners in Clearwater have been cleaning out their closets, steam cleaning the carpets, and giving the house a deep scrub. But what about your drains? You can’t forget to clean out your drains!
You probably have a store-bought drain cleaning product for when the bathtub is backing up or the kitchen sink won’t drain, but putting a band-aid on the issue often won’t make it vanish. Plumbing issues that seem small usually end up being big problems if they aren’t properly resolved. Even if you think it’s just a slow drain, it’s recommended that you have an expert drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t cause damage to the entire system and turn into a huge (and expensive) problem. Remember, no plumbing situation is ever too minor to have 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 turn on your garbage disposal and avoid putting things like fats, vegetable peels, and pasta down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For bathtubs, showers, and bathroom sinks, the most common reasons for drain clogs will be hair build up, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some blocks or have you noticed that you can’t find your favorite bracelet?) A regular drain cleaning by a local Clearwater expert will help keep these minor situations from piling up and creating a huge plumbing problem.
Your toilet can also become clogged by the common issue of using too much toilet paper, but also from putting things like paper towels, band aids, medication, or flushable wipes into the septic system.
If the pipes become clogged, by food, hair, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your entire plumbing system. If you don’t take care of these issues right away by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it may result in cracked pipes. Or worse, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without any water in your home.
Also, what goes down can also come up. Unfortunately, you probably know this already with prior experiences with a clogged toilet, but it can also 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 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 realize the back-up, can avoid these situations completely and prevent your drains from getting clogged and causing foul smells to back up into your home along with the water.
