3 Reasons To Keep Your Drains Clean

For most of us, drain cleaning isn’t a top priority. After all, between work, school, children and the latest health fad, your drain is probably the last thing on your mind. However, it is important to remember your drains at least once in a while. Here are three reasons for why you should get your drains cleaned.

Overflow: A clogged drain may cause your sink or bathtub to overflow creating a huge mess. More than the mess, you risk damaging your flooring and furniture. Poorly cleaned overflown water can provide the perfect environment for mold to grow- especially during the hot summer months. Drain cleaning will avoid any overflow and keep your sink, and the things around it, looking nice.

A Clogged Drain is Unsanitary: Your drain is clogged because a whole mess of something isn’t letting the water run smoothly. That something is gunk, hair, dead skin cells, washed out makeup, and other things that we don’t want to think about, let alone touch again. But if you aren’t drain cleaning on a regular basis and the clog gets large enough, you will be dealing with those particles again because, while the water isn’t moving down the drain, it is certainly coming in contact with all of that junk, and some of it may swim back up. Even if the clog is small and the water goes down later, some of that bacteria may stick around your sink- a particularly disastrous notion in kitchens where the sinks are used to wash food.

Avoid Costly Issues: Regular drain cleaning is relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of repair and replacement if a problem gets out of hand. An ignored clog can lead to damage to your sink, bathroom or kitchen, growing mold and bacteria as well as costly health bills should anyone in your home fall ill due to poor sanitation.

Don’t wait to clean your drain. A quick, easy, cheap drain cleaning is better than facing major issues later. Call Benjamin Franklin, the Punctual Plumber! You can connect with them on Facebook for further news and updates!
