Drainage systems on any property tend to see a significant amount of wear and tear because they are used every single day. A large amount of soap, scum, grease, hair, as well as various other debris, can escape into the drainage pipe. Sometimes, all of these can build up in multiple bends and joints with the pipeline.
We at Willow & Co Plumbing have seen how stubborn clogs can build up with the drainage pipe. If these are not addressed on time, they can cause a backup in your kitchen or bathroom sink and shower areas. The best way to make sure that you do not have to deal with the sudden blockages is to get your drain cleaned regularly.
Regular Drain Cleaning- The Advantages
While you can always call in plumbing professionals to handle regular maintenance and cleaning of drainage systems, there are certain drain cleaning activities that you can perform at home as well:
- It is always essential to make sure that you do not allow food scraps etc. to get into the drain. Never remove the drain cover as that is one of the most effective ways of catching all these particles, preventing them from getting into the drain pipe.
- It’s also a good idea to pour a cupful of baking soda and vinegar into the drainpipe every fortnight or so. You can follow this up with hot water as this can help to keep the drains clear.
- The other effective way of ensuring that there is no blockage in your drain pipes is to call a professional plumber for regular drain pipe inspection. They will use the latest tools, such as CCTV cameras to determine whether there is any potential blockage. Timely intervention can go a long way in preventing more severe issues from cropping up.
You Benefit From Regular Drain Cleaning and Inspections
When you do all these things, it will help to prevent drain blocks from occurring. It also means that you will not have to deal with water backups in the sink or shower areas. It is the best way to avoid dealing with sudden drain blockages.
