A Closer Look Into Why Drain Cleaning Is Important
Problems with blocked drains? Did you know that Grease, sludge, sand and debris are some of the main causes of commercial drain line blockages.
Having well-maintained, clean drains just makes good plumbing sense!
Not only will chronically clogged drains cause health problems, but they will also damage your pipes, causing corrosion and possible damage to your property. Allow clogs to compound over time will lead to expensive, complicated plumbing problems. Getting a professional in to clean your drains thoroughly has so many benefits and is a no-brainer.
Pipe Relining Cape Town Specialise In Drain Cleaning
There is nothing worse than a blocked drain. Often the cause of a blocked drain is the build up of fat, oil and grease from cooking. Largely due to misinformation, many households tend to wash warm fat and grease generated from cooking down the drain which leads to a large amount of debris sticking to the walls of your pipes. When this happens your drains become blocked resulting in pour drainage and a build up of bacteria.
Benefits of having your drains cleaned professionally
1. Prevention of bad odours
Have you ever given thought to what gets washed down your bath and shower drains? Hair from your hair AND body, shampoo and conditioner, soap scum, dead skin cells, and other unmentionable organic matter all get washed down and can accumulate over time causing a disgusting, stinky gunk!
As the build-up of waste and solids occur in your drains and toilets occur, you may find that your drains are beginning to stink.
Unfortunately, the sources of these bad smells are largely untouchable as they are down in your drains and pipes. Without professional drain cleaning, the source of the odours will not be reached and your drains will continue to stink.
2. Save money in the long run
We all know that maintaining the structures of our properties will save us money in the long run. This particularly applies to your plumbing system. Pipes and sewerage system that maintained and well cared for will extend their lifespan by minimising the problems that accumulate over time, well as maintaining your property value. Neglecting your pipes and drains can result in corrosion and expensive repair work and even replacement, as well as causing water leaks and water wastage, resulting in increased water bills.
3. Maintain a hygienic home
Standing, stagnant dirty water caused by sinks, baths, basins, and showers not draining efficiently will lead to the growth of harmful bacteria, mould, and mildew which is just plain gross and something that even the most slovenly house-keepers amongst us would want to avoid.
The only way to get rid of this mess and prevent it from happening again is to have your drains cleaned. There is no way around it and nothing is more effective at clearing this mess than professional drain cleaning done by qualified and experienced plumbers.
4. Prevent future filthy messes!
When your pipes are neglected and accumulate build-up, all that waste will line the walls of your pipes and eventually cause huge clogs. With this comes the risk of overflows… A blocked and overflowing toilet is NOT something that any homeowner dreams of dealing with. Let alone standing in a pool of your own filth while showering!
Slow draining pipes and clogs will actually shorten the lifespan of your pipes and will lead to costly and invasive plumbing work down the line.
