You have likely heard the saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure? Well when it comes to preventative maintenance on your home that is definitely the case. Spedning a little bit of time and money on upkeep in the short term can help your home run smoothly and save you money and repairs and downtime in the long run.
This rule of thumb is particulary true when it come to your home’s plumbing system. The plumbing system in your home can easily be ignored as long as it is seemingly working, but if you neglect the plumbing system for too long you are asking for trouble, and a huge repair bill.
So why should you spend money on drain cleaning?
Think of all the time you spend cleaning your home. You can scrub the floors and the walls all you want, but with the dirt, bacteria, and germs that are spreading through your home in the standing water of a clogged drain, your home isn’t as clean as you think. If you really want a clean living environment then professionally cleaned drains can get the water flowing throughout your home, and reduce the amount of bacteria that your family is exposed to.
Top 3 Reasons for Drain Cleaning:
1. Prevention of Clogs
If you have ever had a clogged toilet or stopped up drain you know what an inconvenience it can be. If given the choice you would obviously rather invest in drain cleaning now than having to deal with that messy situation in the future. Having your drains professionally cleaned removes all the buildup that causes clogs in the first place.
2. Save Money on Water Bills
If your plumbing system is starting to get clogs it can be tempting to just grab a store bought drain cleaner and temporarily fix the situation. Yes, those drain cleaners can break through clogs, but they also have the potential to damage your system. The harsh chemicals in OTC drain cleaners can damage your home’s pipes and eventually lead to leaks. This will lead to huge repair bills in the future.
Another cost to keep in mind is your water bills. Pipes with damage are prone to leaks and water waste, which means that your water bills in Tigard or the surrounding area will be higher than they have to be. A drain cleaning is a small investment that will save you lots of money down the road.
3. Quiet Down Noisy Drains
If your drains have residue built up in them they may squeak or crack. When the passageway of the pipes are narrowed, this is the sound of pressure building up and trying to pass through. The sound is even worse when the water is hot because the heat of the water makes it expand. When you get your drains cleaned that noise will go away.
