Reap These 4 Benefits When You Schedule Your Drain Clearing

Reap These 5 Benefits When You Schedule Your Drain Clearing

It’s no secret that your home’s drains can be a pain to take care of, especially when repairs are costly. While being a homeowner comes with many responsibilities, there are various things that you can do to keep up the maintenance of your home – your drains being one of them. It may not be top of mind for you to get your drains taken care of until they stop working properly or until an unpleasant smell arises and we tend to forget that they are an essential part of our home. Check out just how a Drain Clearing can benefit you and your home.

Longevity

If you neglect your drains, you can expect to have constant problems and could also face long-term damage to your pipes. Over time, your home’s drains will start to deteriorate which can potentially lead to a BIG problem. Prevent this from happening by practicing regular maintenance, such as scheduling a drain clearing, which will help make sure that there are no harmful materials lurking in your drains. This will, in tandem, extend the life of your drains and will keep them working for a longer period of time. 

Faster Flow

Are you sick and tired of standing in a puddle of water in the shower? Is your water pressure not how it used to be? This is because there is a problem with your drains. Food, hair, soaps and other items all travel through our drain and, over time, these items will build up causing a SLOW flow. A drain cleaning can make sure that the drains in your home continue to flow quickly and efficiently.

Fewer Repairs 

Think of your drains as you do your car – they BOTH need maintenance. When you have these essential, regular inspections, it can potentially reduce the need for costly repairs down the road. Your drains are a VERY important part of your home as you use them every day, so making sure that they are clean is an efficient way to keep your home working and flowing RIGHT. Don’t let a small problem turn into a BIG one.

Fresh Drains

Without taking the initiative to get your drains cleared regularly, bacteria and mold will quickly form. This is because mold and bacteria develop from moisture, making drains and sinks the perfect environment for them to grow. Think about it: toothpaste, hair, soap scum, food, facial products and so much more go down your drains every day which is what causes them to smell over time. Get this taken care of NOW!

Expert Technicians

Many times, the normal DIY drain clearing tips, such as plunging or snaking, will help you for a short period of time but it won’t clean your drains properly or completely.

Easily Locate The Source Of Your Drain Clog Issues with These Tips

Easily Locate The Source Of Your Drain Clog Issues with These Tips

Getting a clog in your home can be a DRAG! You may be aware of the common locations of clogs but do you know EXACTLY where they’re coming from? Our Peter Levi team is here to make sure that your home FLOWS right. Check out these three common clog locations and how they can affect you.  

Shower Backup

 

We know that standing in a pool of water while you’re in the shower is VERY frustrating. The most common cause of a shower backup is hair, soap scum, hard water or dead skin cells. These can stick to your pipes, creating blockages. Try using a hair catcher to reduce the amount of hair or other debris from going down your drains. 

Kitchen & Bathroom Sinks

This is a very common clog location for your home due to excess food, soap scum, grease and other items that will go down your disposal/sink. Instead of using harsh chemicals that RUIN your drains, try plunging it or using a drain snake to help unclog your sink. Help avoid this issue by running your garbage disposal regularly to avoid food build-up.  

Toilet

Another annoying clog location in your home is your toilet. If your toilet is blocked, this can potentially bring tons of damage to your home. These blockages can be caused by using too much toilet paper, cat litter, feminine products and other items. You can initially try to use a plunger to fix the clog, but there could be a more severe back-up that you are unaware of lying beneath.

If you’ve tried the above and are STILL experiencing clogs or backups in your shower, sinks or toilet – Give our Peter Levi Plumbing & HVAC team a call at 855-433-6800, we’ll make sure to take care of your drains and get you FLOWING right again.
