drain cleaningHaving your drains regularly cleaned by a professional is something most people tend to overlook. It is easier to leave your drains alone until it becomes a problem. Drain cleaning is very important because it can save you from major plumbing issues later on.

Drain cleaning helps keep your home smelling fresh and clean.  Bacteria can build up in your drains and cause a very bad odor to come out of your sinks and bathtubs. If you notice a bad smell coming from your drains, you should have your drains professionally cleaned.

Drain cleaning also reduces blockages. Small blockages can cause your water to drain slowly.  These blockages can also lead to pipes becoming fully clogged, which can cause toilets and sinks to overflow. It can even cause pipes to burst, which can cause serious damage. If you notice your drains are draining slowly, or if there is a gurgling sound when you drain your bathtub or sink, this could mean you have a blockage.

Drain cleaning will save you money on a long-term basis. If you wait until you have a clogged or burst pipe, you will end up spending a lot of money on repairs.  Burst pipes cause flooding and a lot of water damage. You may need to replace sheetrock, pipes, and flooring to fix the damage.
