What Happens When You Ignore Drain Cleaning?

What Happens When You Ignore Drain Cleaning?

To keep your drain system in top form, drain cleaning is necessary, and when you don’t get cleaning done, there can be serious consequences.

Homes produce a lot of waste, and a good deal of that waste is cleared through the waterways, sewer lines, and drain lines around your home. Drains are standard for pretty much anyone’s home, and a well-kept drain system ensures that your waste materials are taken away from your home, and into the appropriate septic tank or sewer system. To keep your drain system in top form, drain cleaning is necessary, and when you don’t get cleaning done, there can be serious consequences.

Health Risks

When your drains are clogged, there can be serious consequences pertaining to your health. You might experience sewer backups, toilet overflows, and other sanitary problems around your home, all of which will require an emergency plumber to address the issue. You don’t want your home to be exposed to strong odors and all of that nasty bacteria. This doesn’t even take into consideration that certain pests and critters could inhabit your house if you have clogged drains. By getting drain cleaning done, you can rid your home of any nasty pests and germs.

Inefficient Drainage

If you have a blockage in your drains, one of the first things you’ll notice is that wastewater doesn’t flow as smoothly as normally. This lets you know that something is obstructing your drain, reducing how much space is available for waste to flow through your pipes.

All obstructions have a cause, oftentimes stemming from a gradual accumulation of grime, grease, hair, and other types of waste. For this reason, it’s recommended that you get drain cleaning done once per year

Leaks and Bursts

In more severe cases, if drain cleaning isn’t carried out, your pipes could start leaking, meaning wastewater could start pouring into your home. This can affect many parts of your house, such as the floors and walls, and you will need professional drain cleaning services to handle the mess before too much damage is caused. In some cases, the damage that bursting pipes cause can be too much to undo, which is why it’s better to get cleaning done ahead of time and prevent leaking and bursting from happening.
