Your entire plumbing system takes abuse from your household every day. Consider for a moment everything that goes down the drain: waste, garbage, hair, food, chemicals, and, of course, items that don’t belong in the plumbing. Over time, all these elements will clog your drain and inhibit the smooth flow of water throughout the system. A partially blocked plumbing system creates pressure on the pipes and the joints that connect them. Ongoing pressure will cause damage to key plumbing components. It’s only a matter of time.

You Can Expect Expensive Repairs

Plumbing repairs are like all other repairs in your home. They usually come about as a result of long-term neglect or abuse to the system. Emergency service repairs are expensive and time-consuming. You can avoid costly repairs to your plumbing network, however, by hiring a professional plumbing contractor to perform routine maintenance on your plumbing system. With ongoing care, your drain will remain clean and free of debris all year long.

The Solution: Drain Maintenance

What is drain maintenance? It is a systematic routine strategy for keeping your plumbing clean and in excellent working condition. A plumbing system that performs well will maintain its expected lifespan and keep waste and debris from backing up into the home. Professional drain maintenance performed by a trained professional will include the following:

  • Drain vision Inspection. Videos are fed into the drain line all the way to the main sewer line to check for possible waste buildup.
  • Pipe rejuvenation. The pipes are cleaned. All sludge, dirt, and grime are removed. The plumbing system is refreshed and ready for full water flow. Drips and leaks are also checked.
  • Root removal. As tree and bush roots grow, they can puncture and choke out your pipeline. Roots are strong enough to cause severe damage to mainlines made of PVC, steel, or iron. A technician can perform an inspection and identify crucial areas where roots are hurting the plumbing system.
  • Traps & Septic Systems. Everything that goes down the drain ends up in the septic tank. The septic system where grease and grime build up and form hardened layers. Proper maintenance on the septic tank ensures that buildup will never occur and that the system processes the waste as it should.
  • Water Heaters. Water heaters need to be checked for leaks in the tank, weak elements, sediment buildup, and proper temperature calibration.
