How Periodic Drain Cleaning Can Save You Money

Home / How Periodic Drain Cleaning Can Save You Money

Most people don’t think about their plumbing until there’s a major problem like a huge leak or a disgusting sewage backup in the basement. Until it becomes a problem, your plumbing just isn’t on your mind.

But ignoring your plumbing can lead to some expensive problems that could have been avoided with a little routine maintenance. Costly issues like a clogged drain, interior water damage, foundation cracking, mold, mildew, sewage backups, or sinkholes are going to hit you where it hurts–your wallet.

But, is there a way to avoid these types of catastrophes in your home? The answer is yes, and the solution is keeping up with periodic drain cleaning. Here’s how we can help you save some cash in the long run.

Your Pipes Work Hard Each Day

You probably don’t think about how much your pipes have to handle in a day. Food waste from your disposal, shampoo and soap build-up, toilet paper, cooking grease, hair, and lots of other nasty things are continually going into your pipes. Your plumbing system works hard to carry all of this waste away, but it’s no wonder the pipes take a lot of wear and tear. They will also eventually clog from your regular household waste.

Most homeowners don’t know that their pipes can also be affected by natural elements like tree roots or plant debris, which can contribute to significant blockages in the pipes outside your home. If you have a reputable drain cleaning company inspect your entire plumbing system, you can find out how to address big problems ASAP, saving you money.

What about chemical drain cleaners?

Picking up some drain cleaner at the store is what most homeowners do when a clog shows up. Chemical household drain cleaners might appear to help on the surface, but they don’t get to the root of the problem. The liquid will eat through the gunk enough for water and maybe small waste to pass, but it doesn’t help with extensive build-up or corrosion. Harsh chemical drain products will harm the health of your pipes in the long run.

By the time you notice a slow running drain, the problem below the surface is already a problem. That’s why pouring some drain cleaner and hoping for the best is penny wise, pound foolish.

DIY Often Leads to Misdiagnosis

What if you thought you had heartburn and kept taking an over-the-counter antacid to treat the pain. If it turned out that you actually had a more serious heart condition, your antacid isn’t going to help at all. You’ve wasted time and money on antacids while letting your serious condition go untreated.

The same thing goes for trying to DIY plumbing repairs at home. Most homeowners don’t have the expertise to diagnose plumbing problems accurately. This could lead to wasting time, money, and energy on DIY solutions that aren’t even helping.
