Why You Should Be Cleaning Your Home’s Drains

When you think about cleaning your home, rarely, if ever, do you think about cleaning the drains. In fact, most consumers never think about drain cleaning until they have a problem. Then they are tempted to grab a jug of chemical drain cleaner at the store just to avoid calling a plumber to remove a stubborn clog. Which is always the wrong thing to do. But we will get to proper drain cleaning in a moment. First, we are going to discuss the five reasons you should be regularly cleaning the drains in your home.

  1. Clean drains function better than drains that are coated in a nasty, sticky residue. And while you might think that you don’t care about how quickly things wash down your drain, you should. Slow clearing drains are more susceptible to clogs, which lead to overflowing sinks, tubs, and toilets. And all of those things lead to more work for you and some serious contamination issues.
  2. Clean drain pipes last longer. Just imagine the work that would go into replacing the drain pipes in your home. There would be holes in walls, ceilings, and floors. And during the entire time that you are living in this construction zone, you would not be able to use your drains. So that means there is no running water for bathing or cooking. And you also have no flushing toilets. So life in your home would come to a halt until all of the drain pipes were replaced. And along with all of the mess and stress, don’t forget to consider the price tag that will come with this massive project.
  3. The drains in your home handle some nasty stuff. Between all the dirt that goes down sink and tub drains and what you flush, it can be pretty gross. So it is no wonder that there can be some funky smells coming from your pipes. And where there are bad smells, there are also lots of germs, bacteria, mildew, and mold. No one wants to think about all of that unpleasantness lurking inside the drain pipes that are running through their home. Clean drains don’t have all of those creepy things, and because of that, there is no awful smell.
  4. In addition to all of the stinky stuff that lurks in your drains, there are also some harmful things. At least they are detrimental to your pipes. The chemical deposits can corrode your pipes and create hidden leaks in your home’s walls and floors. Now think about the dirty water and human waste that could be leaking from these pipes and contaminating your home. Avoiding that disaster is more than enough of a reason to clean your drains to prevent leaks and contamination.
  5. All drains are hampered by sticky residue build up over time. And that sticky substance is what creates most of the clogs that cause your drains to overflow. The only way to avoid drain clogs is to have your drains professionally cleaned. This cleaning will remove all of the goop and residue that lines your drain pipes and begins to form clogs.
