It’s as easy as A,B,C!
As a homeowner, you’ll need to decide if you want to be reactive or proactive.
A reactive homeowner will find themselves faced with emergency situations when things in their home break or fail due to a lack of preventative maintenance, while those who elect to be proactive eliminate future problems before they even have a chance to develop… saving money, avoiding stress and headache, and increasing the value of their home! (If you choose not to decide, then the decision will be made for you… and it won’t be a good one either!)
When it comes to your drains, what you don’t know CAN hurt you and the advantages of professional preventative drain cleaning are as simple as A, B, C!
Avoid clogs, Bad odors, and Costly repairs!
Clogs are the most obvious result of neglected drains and while your first reaction may be to say, “big deal!” the truth is that clogs ARE a big deal! Think about how inconvenient it would be if you couldn’t use your shower or sink when you need it most… or how embarrassed you’ll be if the toilet won’t flush when your mother-in-law comes to visit! 🤦 💩 Shower or sink drains that don’t keep up or a pesky, slow-flushing toilet may seem like only minor inconveniences, but tomorrow you might find that they are actually a seriously messy (and costly) situation!
The truth is, by the time you notice that water is draining more slowly than before or find yourself plunging the toilet on occasion, clogs have already begun to develop in your home’s plumbing! The beauty of preventative drain cleaning is that you’ll never have to troubleshoot these disasters! Regular drain cleaning assures that your home’s plumbing will be ready when you need it.
Bad odors can haunt your home, but you don’t have to live with the odoriferous ghosts that possess your drains! Where do these smells come from? Well, it’s not just water that goes down those pipes! Hair, soap scum, dirt, debris, and organic matter (not to mention what goes in your toilet) collect in your drain and become a gross concoction with foul-smelling results. As the organic matter begins to break down, bacteria develop as the dark, damp setting of your drain provides the perfect place for smells to evolve. Besides their unpleasant nature, these foul odors are far more insidious than meets the eye. (Or nose!) Failure to properly clean your drains can lead to a buildup of unsanitary water and even growth of mold or bacteria! Taking a shower and washing your hands and dishes needs to be done in the most sanitary of environments, yet bad odors are a telltale sign that you are putting your family at risk. Could you ignore those questionable smells rising from the drain? Sure. But the health and safety of yourself and others isn’t worth it.
If a pesky clog, unwelcome stench, and the health of your family somehow aren’t enough to convince you of the importance of professional drain cleaning, this argument might hit you where it hurts: the wallet! Slowly developing clogs and the emergence of odors are both symptoms of bigger problems and warnings of an impending catastrophe. A “minor clog” today could easily result in a sink overflow, causing water damage to your walls, flooring, and personal belongings. A slow-flushing toilet might foreshadow a sewage backup and the thought of wastewater overflowing your toilet bowl and spilling over into your bathroom is enough to make even the strongest of stomachs turn.
If you’re honest, the main reason you might opt out of having your drains professionally cleaned is the cost, but the cost of preventative maintenance is minimal when compared with the massive invoice you’ll have on your hands if you choose to cross your fingers and hope you don’t develop bigger issues down the road.
So, what should you do? You undoubtedly see the advantage of professional drain cleaning and want to avoid clogs, bad odors, and costly repairs by being proactive with your home…
