Every system in your New Orleans, LA home should be maintained regularly to ensure everything functions at peak performance, and your plumbing system isn’t an exception.
You rely on your plumbing system all day to provide clean running water and to remove water and waste from the home. If something goes wrong with your plumbing system, you won’t be able to perform many household tasks. The best way to maintain your plumbing system and ensure it functions properly is to have a drain cleaning service performed.
If you don’t think this service is worth the time and cost, you should consider the ways a drain cleaning service can benefit your home and family.
#1 Prevent Drain Clogs
Many homeowners are careful with what they put down the drain to avoid a clog. Unfortunately, as careful as you are, food, grease, hair, and soap scum can clog the drains, affecting how the water drains. Small clots can cause the water to drain slowly, which can be frustrating when you do anything that requires the water to run. Large clogs can block the drain completely, and the water will stand in the sink and tub, unable to pass the clog.
Having a drain cleaning service performed regularly will reduce the risk of an inconvenient clog that can affect your ability to perform daily household tasks. A plumber will clean the drain lines, allowing the water to flow freely down the drain.
#2 Prevent Multiple Clogs
If multiple drains in your home become clogged simultaneously, there probably isn’t a clog in every drain. Multiple drain clogs often indicate a clog in the sewer line or the main drainage line.
Fortunately, having a drain cleaning service performed can clear the sewer line or main drainage line, allowing the water to flow freely down every drain in your home.
#3 Quiet Noisy Drains
Does a drain in your home make a gurgling sound when the water drains? If so, you should schedule a drain cleaning service right away. The gurgling sound indicates a large clog in the drain, which could cause the drain to clog entirely.
A large drain clog will prevent the water from passing; therefore, the water will need to change directions to get past the clog. The change in direction creates air in the pipes, causing a gurgling sound.
Having a drain cleaning performed will ensure the entire clog is removed, which will quiet the drain.
#4 Detect Issues Early
The pipes in your New Orleans, LA home are hidden behind the walls and under the floors; therefore, you won’t know if there is damage until a damaging leak occurs.
Fortunately, minor issues can be detected early during a drain cleaning service. The plumber will send a drain camera down the drains, allowing them to see problems early before any permanent water damage or mold growth occurs. In addition, early detection can prevent you from paying an expensive plumbing bill.
#5 Rid Your Home of Fruit Flies
Do you have fruit flies buzzing around your kitchen? If you have a fruit bowl or a vase of flowers on your counter, you know where the fruit flies are coming from. If not, they could be coming up from the drain.
When food and grease clog the drain, fruit flies will be attracted to the drain, causing an infestation in the kitchen. There are many home remedies you can try; however, they just mask the problem. The fruit flies will return if you don’t use the treatment daily.
Fortunately, a drain cleaning can solve your fruit fly problem. A plumber will clean the drain, removing the food and grease, and the drain will no longer be a hospitable environment for fruit flies.
#6 Rid Your Home Of Foul Smells
Is there a foul smell in your home, and you can’t find the cause? If so, your drains could be to blame. When food and grease build up in the drains, they can spoil, causing a foul smell. In addition, mold growth can occur in the drains, creating a foul odor.
Fortunately, a drain cleaning service can rid your home of the foul smell. A plumber can clean the drain line, removing any food, grease, or mold buildup, keeping your home smelling clean and fresh.
#7 Prevent Water Backups
Water backups are your worst nightmare as a homeowner because the backup can cause dirty, foul-smelling water to flood your home, causing water damage and mold growth in your New Orleans, LA home. In addition, a toilet backup is very unsanitary and can put your family’s health at risk.
If you have a drain cleaning performed regularly, you won’t have to worry about a water backup. The plumber will remove all clogs from the drain, allowing the water to flow freely down the drain instead of backup up into your home.
