Saving Money With Preventive Plumbing Maintenance
The pipes in your home are under a constant attack from debris that can cause clogs and slowly corrode the surface. Over time, the inside of the pipes will become weaker, leading to a plumbing emergency at the worst possible time. When you hire you local plumbing professional to do preventative maintenance on the entire plumbing system, you lessen the likelihood of one of those emergencies setting you back a small fortune.
The Backed Up Toilets
The toilets can easily become backed up because that is where more debris is tossed and flushed throughout the month. Many times those items get trapped in the pipes, and then subsequently everything else that follows gets stuck as well. Trying to use a plunger or drain cleaner provide a temporary fix, never really addressing the real issue deep down in the pipe. A plumbing snake could be effective if you are experienced with that tool. Too many times a homeowner will get the tool stuck, making a problem and emergency, requiring a plumbing company to rush over as raw sewage begins to back up into the home. With a preventative maintenance contract, those pipes will be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis to avoid that costly emergency from occurring.
The Kitchen Sinks
The drain that flows from the kitchen sink sees food particles of every size make their way down the down each day. As the particles begin to accumulate in the trap or tight areas of the pipe down the line, they start to form a blockage. Each time food gets into the drain, or is not properly chopped up by the garbage disposal, it only adds to the problem.
The first thing many people do when they see the drain clogged, pour in those liquid drain cleaners to eliminate the trouble. The problem with those store bought cleaners is the fumes are highly toxic. If trapped in the drain with the clog, the fumes release into the air in the home and create a very dangerous environment to children and pets. Additionally, the harmful components in those cleaners break down the integrity of the lining in those drain pipes.
Your local plumbing expert will use organic cleaning compounds when they do their preventative maintenance. This saves you on replacing your pipes and keeps you from having to pay for emergency repairs in the event that the pipe bursts.
