Get Help With Drain Cleaning in Salt Lake City
Did you know that clogged drains are the most common plumbing problem for homeowners across the U.S.? Each year, 15 million clogged drains contribute to the stress levels of frustrated homeowners.
Regular household maintenance such a changing air filters, cleaning air ducts or changing batteries in smoke alarms are tasks that typically make it on the weekend “to do” list. Unfortunately, however, many homeowners do not consider sewer and drain cleaning as a major priority, making it one of the most overlooked home maintenance tasks.
Homes have a complex network of pipes that can, if not properly cleaned, lead to corrosion, blockages and even health hazards. Contaminants can quickly accumulate in drains that are not cleaned regularly. These can pollute the water in your pipe lines with bacteria and germs, and introduce water-borne diseases into your home.
Neglecting to clean your drain could threaten the health of your family, because drains can give shelter to a variety of dangerous substances, such as microorganisms, mold, fungus, germs, and mildew.
Some of the leading causes of clogs include:
- Food waste
- Toilet paper
- Mineral build-up
The only way to avoid problems is to make sure your drain and sewer pipes are regularly cleaned.
Clogs do not happen only in the drains that lead directly from your plumbing fixtures, but also in your larger sewer lines. The plumbing fixture lines connect to larger plumbing sewer lines that run underneath the home, and out into the yard. These lines often become blocked by tree roots, resulting in sewage backing up into the home, usually through floor drains, in the lower level of the home. Tree roots can be a serious problem, particularly for the older, more established neighborhoods where large trees, with established, far reaching root systems, are common.
As with most areas of home repair, prevention through prompt property maintenance can save you an enormous amount of time, money and inconvenience.
Backed up drains are never convenient. When a clog is starting to form, the tell-tale sign is usually slow drainage. When slow drainage is addressed, usually a service call can restore free flow to your drains and pipes, ensuring that your home stays free of backed up waste water and sewer water, keeping you and your family dry and healthy.
At the first sign of slow draining, you should call a drain cleaning specialist.
