Drain maintenance is something that homeowners should consider on a regular basis because there’s nothing pleasant about the problem of a blocked or cracked drain. While there are products available that can help to control general drain problems, these can’t replace a proper maintenance check and often simply mask a bigger problem.
One of the biggest problems with drains is the debris that goes down them during the everyday use of the kitchen and bathrooms sinks. From hair in the shower to waste cooking oil, lots of things accidentally go down the drains and can lead to blockages. This can stop water and waste flowing away and lead to it backing up into the home. Regular maintenance can stop these problems before they reach that stage and keep the waste flowing in the right direction.
Another problem with drains can be from the roots of plants and trees in the garden. These can grow close to the drains and cause tiny cracks that allow them to grow inside. This means wastewater is draining out of the pipe in the wrong place and causing problems. Spotting this root ingress is something a regular maintenance check will do.
We offer help with blocked drains but also drain maintenance as it is always better to stop the problem before it develops than deal with it after the drains are leaking or stop flowing properly.
