Drain Line Maintenance

What Is Drain Line Maintenance?

Drain line maintenance is the on-going process of keeping your drain pipes usable, efficient, and clean. Drain line maintenance can be performed regularly by a plumber who can ensure that the drainage pipes around your home are clean and free-flowing.

Why is Drain Line Maintenance Important?

water going down a drainDrain line maintenance is important as it acts as a prevention against the threat of harmful bacteria and mold that, if left overtime, can become harmful to your home’s plumbing system such as producing a clog. Typically, what causes a clog is organic materials such as food, waste, and grease that have been caught in the drain, and eventually have built up into a large mass that is blocking water and other liquids from flowing freely in your drain.

Over time, these organic materials can attract harmful bacteria which have ample opportunity to feed and grow. This can help exacerbate various health conditions such as Asthma or allergies, as well as cause skin irritations if contact with the dirty or contaminated water is regular.

In addition to the health concerns, structural damage to your home or residence is a real possibility if clogs are left untreated. Over time, water can spread to various areas of your home such as your floor, foundation, and walls which can cause major repairs to be needed in the future.

Signs That Drain Line Maintenance May Be Needed

The tell-tale sign that drain line maintenance may be required is a clog. However, ideally, it would be best to know whether drain line maintenance is needed before you get to multiple drain clogs around your home or residence. Common signs that drain line maintenance may be required are the following:

Drain Noise – One of the most common signs that plumbing services will be needed is by a “gurgle” sound coming from your drain pipes. If you notice “gurgling” noises coming from drain pipes such as your sink or toilet, call the professional plumbers at Brian Wear Plumbing to provide the proper plumbing maintenance before it becomes a serious problem.

Foul Odor - Bad smells coming from your drains across your home are an indication that organic materials are decomposing in your drains, and may start to build up over time if left untreated.

Discolored Water – Using the toilet as an example, if the drainage water starts to become discolored it could be a sign that drain line maintenance will be needed sooner rather than later.
