Every system in your Myrtle Beach, SC home needs regular maintenance if they are going to function properly, including your plumbing system. Your plumbing system consists of two parts, the water delivery system, and the drainage system. If either one isn’t functioning properly, life in your home can be very inconvenient. The best way to protect your home’s drainage system is to have an annual drain cleaning service performed. If you aren’t sure that it isn’t worth the cost of having this service performed, you should consider the benefits of having it performed.
#1 Keep the Water Flowing
A slow or clogged drain can be extremely frustrating. If the drains aren’t working properly, simple daily tasks can be difficult or impossible. Many homeowners will try to fix the problem themselves by using a liquid drain cleaner, which isn’t the best option. There is no guarantee that these products will remove the entire clog. Also, these products contain harsh chemicals that can be damaging to your pipes.
If you have an annual drain cleaning service performed, you won’t need to worry about slow or clogged drains or using liquid drain cleaners. The plumber will clear the drains, removing any clogs in the pipes, big or small.
#2 Quiet Your Drains
If the drains in your home make a gurgling sound when the water goes down, you can benefit from a drain cleaning service. The gurgling sound is a sign that you have a large clog in the drain. When there is a large clog, the water will need to change directions to get past the clog. This direction change causes a gurgling sound. If you have a drain cleaning performed, any clogs in your drain will be removed, keeping your drains quiet.
#3 Keep Your Home Smelling Fresh
If you smell something foul in your kitchen and cannot figure out where it is coming from, it could be coming from the drains in your home. As careful as you are with what you put down the drain, eventually, food, grease, and other debris will end up clogging the drain. Over time, the debris will spoil, creating a foul smell.
If you have a drain cleaning performed every year, anything clogging the drain will be removed, keeping your kitchen smelling fresh all year long.
#4 Rid Your Home Of Fruit Flies
If there are fruit flies in your kitchen, but you don’t have any fruit or dying flowers on the counter, they could be coming from your drains. When food, grease, and other debris can cause a clog in the drain, it creates the perfect breeding ground for fruit flies.
If you have a drain cleaning performed every year, you won’t need to worry about a fruit fly infestation.
#5 Keep Your Water Bills Down
If you have noticed that your water bills have been higher than normal, you should consider your water usage. If you recently had a water-based appliance installed, it could be the reason your water bills have increased. The same is true if you recently filled a swimming pool, hot tub or you started using sprinklers to water your lawn.
If your water usage hasn’t increased, you could have a leak in the waterline. If you have a drain cleaning performed every year, you won’t need to worry about water line leaks. During the drain cleaning service, the plumber will put a small camera down the drain so they can get a good look at your pipes. If there is a leak that cannot be seen, the plumber will see it on the camera and make the necessary repairs. This will help keep your water bills down.
#6 Save Money On Expensive Plumbing Repairs
If you neglect to have a drain cleaning performed, large clogs can build up in the drains. When this happens, it can cause major plumbing issues. A large clog can cause the drainage system to become corroded, causing your water to become contaminated. The clog can also cause the pipes in your Myrtle Beach, SC home to burst, which can cause a major flood in your home.
Although there is a fee for a drain cleaning service, the cost is much cheaper than a major plumbing repair cost. During the drain cleaning service, the plumber will remove all clogs in the drainage system, preventing any major plumbing issues.
#7 Prevent Water From Backing Up Into Your Home
When there is a large clog in your drainage system, it can cause water to back up in the sink, toilet, or washing machine. When the water backs up, it can cause a major flood in your home, causing serious water damage and can promote mold growth. Also, it can be very expensive to clean up after a flood.
If you have a drain cleaning service performed every year, any large clogs that can cause the water to backup will be removed. This will keep the water flowing down the drain properly, preventing a backup.
