Drain Cleaning in Queens, Nassau, & Suffolk County
It’s funny that drains are often used as a way to flush water that has been used for cleaning, yet many people don’t think to clean the drains themselves.
Think about it: When was the last time you had your drains cleaned? If you’re like most homeowners and business owners, the answer is probably never. If that’s the case, you need to contact Five Towns Sewer & Drain to schedule a drain cleaning as soon as possible.
Why Cleaning Your Drains is Important
Though you use your drains on a constant basis, you probably don’t put much thought into what you are putting down them. Hair, soap, food, toothpaste, hair care products, and various other items get washed down your drains. While the pieces may be small, over time they can accumulate and cause major issues down the road.
Some of the benefits of cleaning your drains include:
- Reduce the chance of a blockage. If drains aren’t cleaned, all of that debris you flush down them can really build up and create a blockage. A small blockage can be a nuisance, causing your drains to run slow and creating pools of water around your feet while you’re showering or around your dishes while you’re washing them. More extensive clogs can be a serious cause for concern. They can lead to flooding and sewage backup, which can lead to serious problems and costly repairs. Having your drains cleaned on a regular basis can reduce the annoyance and possible chaos a blockage can cause.
- Eliminate odors. As debris accumulates in your drains, it can start to create a foul odor. Bacteria thrive in the moist conditions and on the dirt and debris, creating a foul-smelling odor. Furthermore, should your main sewer drain line become clogged as a result of the waste flushed down your drains, you could end up smelling raw sewage, a vile and extremely off-putting odor that can wreak havoc on your home or business. Having your drains cleaned can eliminate the development of those foul smells.
- Cost savings. Believe it or not, drain cleaning can actually help you save money. If the waste that accumulates in your drains becomes so extensive that it leads to a blockage, flooding, sewage backup, and pipe damage can occur. These issues involve extensive repairs that can be extremely costly. By having your drains cleaned, you can reduce the chances of more serious problems and expensive repairs.
How Often Should Drains be Cleaned?
The answer to this question varies from home to home and business to business. It all depends on the amount of wastewater that is flushed down the drains and what type of debris is flushed down them.
For example, a 5-person household that uses water on a regular basis will need to have its drains cleaned more frequently than a 2-person household that doesn’t use its drains as often. However, should a smaller household flush water and large amounts of debris, such as grease, down their drains, the drains may need to be cleaned as frequently – if not more – than a larger household.
Another factor that affects how frequently drains need to be cleaned is the age of the sewer rain line and the condition they are in. On average, annual drain cleaning should be sufficient; however, if your drains experience a high volume of usage, having them cleaned more twice a year or more often may be necessary. This is particularly true for commercial properties, especially those that use a lot of water, such as restaurants, hotels, bars, and Laundromats.
