Why Pipe Cleaning Can Prevent Damage and Save Money
Pipe cleaning is necessary when drains or pipes become so clogged that water flow slows down significantly or completely stops. By the time that water flow has started to slow down, a significant amount of buildup has usually occurred. There are a wide range of different pipe cleaning methods that can be used to clean up buildup within a pipe and prevent future buildup. Pipe cleaning can save you a significant amount of money when it catches problems before they start to build up, or when it stops water from backing up into your home or business.
Water backups can occur at any drain or fixture
When you have a clogged drain, you can get a water backup at your sink, toilet, or other plumbing fixture. This causes water or raw sewage to leak out of the fixture and into your home or business. Depending on how severe the backup is, it may cost you thousands or more in water damage. You may have to replace expensive flooring, furniture, or other parts of your home that are sensitive to water damage. There is also almost always a time consuming and difficult cleanup that follows.
Preventative pipe cleaning can catch blockages before they escalate
One of the main benefits of preventative pipe cleaning is the fact that it can catch blockages before they become full blockages. A fully blocked drain will back water up and shut your whole plumbing system down. If you maintain your plumbing system well and do a preventative cleaning at least once a year, your drains are much less likely to be fully clogged. This can be especially important for homes or companies that have drains that are regularly clogged for whatever reason, such as excess buildup or high usage.
When you have a slow drain request an inspection
You don’t always have to do a preventative sewer cleaning, but it can certainly be helpful for catching problems. If you start to notice that your drains are slowing down, you may definitely want to consider a drain inspection. If the inspection finds a blockage such as tree roots, grease buildup, or another type of blockage, a pipe cleaning is often recommended.
