How often should you clean the drains?
The sink, kitchen and bath drains –Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου- in your home are not necessarily a thing you can inspect anytime, but they are crucial in ensuring that the dirty water is carried away from your house rather than pooling on the floor somewhere or dripping like crazy from your ceiling.
Ideally, homeowners must not have to deal with leaky or damaged drains ever, because they would all work perfectly, but the fact is that since the pipes are hidden behind walls it is impossible to know if something is wrong until it’s too late.
This does not mean that there is nothing you can do to prevent a leak or damaged drains. The easiest thing to do is to hire a professional drain cleaning crew to make sure that your house’s drains are cleared out and working perfectly. Even if they are not causing backups -yet-, uncleaned drains can lead to bacteria and germs buildup, which is firstly gross and unsanitary, and and secondly potentially corrosive to your pipes.
Why Should You Clean Your Drains?
Let’s see the reasons why you should clean your drains regularly. By regularly, we mean at least once per year as your system needs a professional –Αποφράξεις Αργυρούπολη– annual inspection and cleaning. This way, your system will be squeaky clean and you will not have to deal with any clogs until the next scheduled cleaning!
1 To Prevent Big Plumbing Issues
The number one reason to have your drains cleaned once a year or more often, is to avoid big plumbing emergencies. A minor issue will become a major one pretty quickly, especially when it comes to clogs. What will start as a bit of grime, can build up into a full blockage in the future, and then you will be having sewage backing up and potentially a very expensive and time consuming series of repairs.
Some of the most common culprits are grease, fat, soap, and hair, but, regular drain cleanings –Αποφράξεις Αμπελόκηποι– will keep those things from turning into much larger issues.
2 Boost the Longevity of Your Sewer System
And this one, is another major advantage. If you want to prevent major issues, you will at the same time boost the longevity of the sewer system as a whole. Clogs put a strain on pipes and drains, and the buildup they create can be corrosive for the pipes. Rather than spending little money for a professional cleaning, homeowners will end up spending huge amounts on even full system replacements. Cleaning the drains once per year can prolong the inevitability of that.
3 To Reduce Unpleasant Odors
Any kind of blockage can be frankly, gross. They feel, look, and smell gross, and the longer that these clumps of fat and grease are sitting in there, building up bacteria and mold, the more likely it is that they are going to stink the house up whenever you get to use that sink or shower. We believe that no one likes these types of foul smells, and that a drain cleaning can prevent them from happening.
Of course, there are some ways to stall the professional cleaning, if what you have is only bad smells and no clogs -which is rarely the case. Using natural and not chemical cleaning products will help you get rid of the smells. Baking soda will become your new best friend as it is great in absorbing odors.
4 Prevent the Spread of Bacteria and Germs
The bacterial that we talked about earlier, will have another negative outcome in your system: turning your sink into a trail of bacteria and germs that can work their way up to food and otherwise clean dishes. Bacteria and germs in this context are not only disgusting but also dangerous to your health, so a clean out can prevent them from spreading and infesting your sink.
In between the professional cleanings from a drain cleaning crew, try to disinfect your counter spaces and bathroom as often as you can, using products that are not harmful for the environment.
