Your New Orleans, LA, home’s electrical, HVAC, and plumbing system are essential to your daily life, and regular maintenance is the best way to ensure each system functions correctly. You can maintain your plumbing system by having a drain cleaning service every year.
If you’re worried that having the drains cleaned by a plumber isn’t worth the time and money, you should understand how beneficial this service can be.
#1 Prevent Drain Clogs
As careful as you are with what you put down the drains, food, grease, hair, and soap scum will still get into the drain and can cause a clog. Clogged drains can make life in your home very inconvenient, and having a drain cleaning service performed will help.
The plumber will clean the drains to remove any minor clogs and debris that can eventually result in a significant clog that will stop the water from draining. Having a drain cleaning service performed every year will ensure the water flows down the drain quickly all year long.
#2 Quiet Gurgling Drains
Does a drain in your home make a gurgling sound when the water drains? If so, it won’t be long before a complete clog prevents the water from draining. When there’s a significant clog in the drain, the water will have to change directions to get down the drain. The change in direction will create air pockets in the pipes, causing a gurgling sound.
A drain cleaning service will clear the clog and any others, and the water will drain quietly.
#3 Eradicate Fruit Flies
Do you have a problem with fruit flies in your kitchen but can’t figure out where they’re coming from? If you have a vase of dying flowers or a fruit bowl in the kitchen, it could be the source. If you don’t have anything in the kitchen that would bring fruit flies, they could be coming up from the kitchen drain. When food, grease, and other debris coat the inside of the pipes or create a clog, the drain will be the perfect breeding ground for fruit flies. There are plenty of DIY recipes to rid the drain of fruit flies, but they won’t be effective unless you treat the drains at least twice a day.
If you want a permanent solution to your fruit fly problem, a drain cleaning service can help. When a plumber cleans the drains, the food, grease, and debris will be removed, and the drain will no longer be a hospitable environment for fruit flies.
#4 Rid Your Kitchen of Foul Smells
Is there a foul smell in your kitchen, and you can’t figure out where it’s coming from? If you’ve cleaned the entire kitchen and still can’t find the source of the smell, it could be coming up from the drain.
When food or grease clogs the drain, it will spoil, creating a foul odor. It’s also possible for mold and bacteria to build up in the drains, creating a foul smell.
Fortunately, a drain cleaning service will solve the problem. A plumber will clean everything from the drain, and the foul odor will go with it, ensuring your New Orleans, LA, home smells fresh and clean.
#5 Prevent Expensive Plumbing Repairs
If there’s a clog in any drain in your home, it can cause significant plumbing issues that can be expensive to repair, including:
- Contaminated water
- Corroded drain systems
- Burst pipes
- Higher than average water bills
The clogs will be removed when the drains are cleaned, preventing serious plumbing issues in the future that could be very costly.
#6 Detect Plumbing Issues Early
Simple daily tasks can be impossible when something goes wrong with your plumbing system. It’s best to detect plumbing problems early to avoid further damage.
Fortunately, a plumber can detect minor plumbing problems during your annual drain cleaning service. They will inspect the plumbing system and can repair minor issues before they escalate to something more serious and expensive to repair.
#7 Prevent Water Backups
Water backups are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. The last thing you want is water to back up in the washing machine, and you can’t do laundry. A sink backup can cause a flood in your home, and a toilet backup can result in water and raw sewage flooding the bathroom. Large clogs cause water backups, and a drain cleaning service can prevent backups from occurring.
When a plumber cleans the drains, any clogs and debris will be removed, preventing a large clog that can cause water to back up, eliminating the risk of water backing up and flooding your home.
