Drainage

You may have started to see the common signs of drainage issues in your bathroom or kitchen. The water starts to drain a lot slower and there may even be a less than pleasant smell coming from the sinkhole.

You may be tempted to try to solve these issues yourself with the help of supermarket cleaning products that promise to fix your drainage issue with a simple application of chemicals. There are plenty of tutorials online to help fix the issue too which you might be thinking of trying out for yourself.

This is not always the best route to take when it comes to drainage. While you may temporarily fix the problem, it’s likely you are not completely resolving the issue at all. You could be making it worse.

Benefits of Hiring Professional Drainage Services

Eliminate Nasty Odours

Have you ever stopped to think about what goes down your drain? All manner of nasty things go down and get clogged including food, hair, soap scum, grime, dirt, and all sorts of nasty organic matter that can quickly start to smell if not dealt with properly.

A minor clog in your pipes occurs when these organic matters get stuck. As it’s organic, bacteria start to eat away at the organic matter which creates that foul smell you are encountering.

Professional drain cleaning using the right tools and knowledge can help eliminate organic matter from your pipes in an effective way to instantly relieve the nasty odors. Failure to remove the clog properly can result in the smell to keep coming back again and again.

Reduce the Chances of Re-clogging

If you are going to fix something, it’s best to fix it right the first time. Allowing a slow drain to turn into a clog repeatedly will create another build-up of foul-smelling odor in no time. You could try and plunge but this is not nearly as effective as professional draining.

The more clogs you get the more money and time you spend trying to fix them and the more hassle they bring to your everyday life.

Avoid Health Issues and Mitigate Your Environmental Impact

Over the counter, cleaning products use harsh chemicals that over time can be hazardous to you and your family’s health. A professional will use the best cleaning products available that won’t pose any risk to your health.

These harsh chemicals are also terrible for the environment. A professional drainage service will use the best products for cleaning your pipes and can help significantly reduce the chances of repeat blocking. Preventive measures are always better than just patching up an issue.

Save Money and Time

Failure to properly deal with your drainage issues means that you will have to keep using the same old method to temporarily fix the issue, patching it up each time. This costs you time and money each time. Those over the counter cleaning products don’t come cheap either.

The cost of a plumber coming to your house and effectively dealing with the issue from the very start will help eliminate the need to keep buying cleaning products and getting your hands dirty for hours each time. A professional drainage expert can assess the specific issues you are having and can help prevent the issue from happening again any time soon. 

Avoid Leaks

Clogs lead to leaks if not properly dealt with which can cause you further frustration, time and money spent on trying to fix them. Leaks are bad news for your floors and walls too. They can damage your surfaces so much that they can become irreparable. This might result in needing to replace those surfaces which costs even more money to fix.

When hiring a professional drainage cleaner they will make sure that your surfaces are not at threat and put in the necessary measures to avoid any further issues in the future.

Keep Your Pipes Healthy  

Damage to pipes is also a possibility if drainage issues are not dealt with by a professional. The build-up of harsh chemicals and grease causes your pipes to erode which will result in leaking and insufficient drainage. This can result in your floors being dug up to replace the damaged pipes.

A small leak can be fixed quite easily but a major leak may see you incurring more repair fees that you didn’t plan for. Professional drain cleaning helps to break down these chemicals and grease so that your pipes can stay healthy and your drainage performs optimally.

Improve Drainage Speed

When a drain is properly treated by a professional cleaner you can expect drainage rates to speed up in your house. Slow drainage can be an annoyance, especially if you enjoy a nice long hot shower. You don’t want to have to plunge your toilet a few times every week either as it’s nasty work.

Once a professional drainage cleaner completes their work on your pipes you can rest assured that drainage will be quick and seamless. You won’t need to worry about the hassle of flooded showers, overflowing toilets and nasty delaying foods resurfacing in your kitchen sink.

Professional Drainage is the Answer

Save yourself a ton of time, energy, money and hassle by hiring professionals to maintain and fix your drains. Failing to do so increases the risk of damage to your home and may result in considerably more money being spent on fixing the issue yourself. Have peace of mind by getting professionals to ensure your pipes are working optimally and preventing any future drainage issues.
