The Many Benefits of Regular Drain Cleanings

If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t pay much attention to your pipes...that is, until something goes wrong.

But here at VP’s Plumbing, Heating & Air, we think the only thing better than fixing a problem quickly is preventing it from ever happening in the first place. Even if your water is running and draining well, you could still benefit from a cleaning.

4 Reasons to Schedule a Drain Cleaning Today

1. Prevent Clogs

We get it, most homeowners don’t want to spend money having their drains cleaned if water is flowing just fine. But clogged drains don’t happen overnight. Regular drain cleanings can alleviate small clogs before they turn into big problems. You’ll also notice that water in the sink and shower will drain more quickly than before.

2. Eliminate Bad Odors

Have you ever noticed a foul odor coming from your kitchen sink? Especially if you have a garbage disposal, it’s normal for food to get lodged in the drain and give off a less-than-pleasant smell as it begins to decompose.

3. Better Water Pressure

Is your water pressure not what it used to be? Blockages don’t always completely stop the flow of water. When they first start to form, most clogs will affect your shower and sink’s water pressure.

4. Prolong the Life of Your Drains

Contrary to popular belief, your drains won’t last forever. If you’re someone who usually relies on chemical cleaners, you could be cutting your pipes’ lifespan in half because these chemicals can corrode the inside of your plumbing, leaving them more susceptible to cracks and leaks. But a professional plumber will use eco-friendly practices that won’t harm your plumbing.
