When you’re making your spring-cleaning list for your Lehigh Acres, FL home, you probably have plans to clean windows, cabinets, closets, and more. It’s easy to forget about the drains in your home when you’re making your cleaning plans. However, there are several benefits associated with scheduling a professional drain cleaning visit.
Eliminate Standing Water and Slow Drains
If the only thing that ever passed through your drains was water, the chances of a drain clog would be minimal. However, this simply isn’t the case since your drains also whisk away food debris, human waste, hair, soap, and more. All those materials can result in clogs that can lead to significant damage to your plumbing system.
Remedy Nasty Odors
When the materials that pass through your drains create a clog, they can eventually start to decay inside your pipes. That decay is why you may begin to notice noxious odors coming out of your drains. Professional drain cleaning helps ensure that these clogs get removed and the odors that they produce never come into your home.
Protect Your Home
The lines that connect your drains to your septic system flow through your walls and under your floors. If a clog turns serious enough, it can actually cause pipes to become disconnected or even burst. The leaks that stem from a damaged pipe can ruin your floors or your walls, especially if the leak starts small and you don’t notice it for a while.
These reasons are only the beginning of why you should be sure to schedule professional drain cleaning on your home. Our plumbers can do much more than the bottle of drain cleaner that you purchase at your local hardware store. Give us a call today at Lee County Plumbing & Well Service to find out about all of our plumbing services.
