3 Reasons to Invest in Preventative Drain Cleaning

Drain cleaning is something that we talk about regularly on this blog. We’re plumbers, and we’re sorry for sounding redundant, but plumbers like to talk about plumbing! You’ve probably experienced this firsthand if you have any friends or family that are master plumbers. It’s in our blood, so try to give us a break!

However, there’s one more important word we’d like to focus on for this blog, and that’s “preventative.” Drain cleaning can often be purchased when your drains are clogged, but homeowners rarely call us for drain cleaning in Provost, AB to prevent clogs. But this might be the best use for this service!

Today, we’d like to talk about how drain cleaning can prevent clogs from building up in the first place. We’ll discuss with you the advantages of signing up for regular drain cleaning services and why that might be more beneficial (and more affordable) than just calling us for drain cleaning when you need it.

Preventing Problems Is Always Easier

First of all, we need to start by talking about the difference between preventative plumbing service and emergency plumbing repair. When your toilet starts overflowing in the middle of the night, there’s really not much you could have done to prevent that. This is a situation when calling a plumber for your needed repairs is a must.

However, when your drains clog, usually there are signs that show the clog developing. For starters, you could see slow drains developing. Or, perhaps you’re noticing that your drains clog frequently even if you can remove the clog yourself with a plunger or a drain snake.

Basically, there are some great benefits to having routine drain cleaning done on a yearly basis instead of when you need it in the moment. Here are just a few of them.

It’s More Convenient

Preventative drain cleaning services are convenient because they keep drains from backing up when you need them the most. Are you starting to plan that Christmas party already? Then you’re going to want to make sure your drains are actually clear enough to use throughout your home.

It’s incredibly inconvenient and frustrating to have your drains get clogged or backed up on the nights when you need them the most. Sometimes, you’ll run into a situation where and emergency plumber still takes time to get to your home, and there could be a mess involved.

It’s More Affordable

While yearly drain cleaning might sound like it’s expensive, it’s usually less expensive than emergency drain cleaning. It can be tough for a plumber to get out a clog that’s taken years or even a decade to develop. This is hours and hours of plumbing service, usually with high labor costs at an inconvenient time. You could see one expensive plumbing repair cost.

Whereas with preventative drain cleaning, it’s usually fast and easy. Thirty minutes to an hour every year and your drains are in great shape down thee line.

It Keeps Things From Getting Bad

Drain clogs that take years to develop can be very bad. They might be incredibly hard to remove and also they could cause a whole room of your home to be unusuable for a brief period of time. Stop this from happening with preventative drain services.
