The Importance Of Commercial Drain Clearing

Commercial Drain Clearing
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Just like checking your engine’s oil at least once a month, you should also be checking on your drains and pipes. It is important to keep them healthy to prevent buildups and extend the life of your system.

Commercial drain clearing is the process of restoring water flow to your plumbing using a motor-powered snake blade with rotating blades or a hydro jet to remove foreign particles like grease, tree root, cement and food in your pipes. However, the loose particles that remain in your piping can cause blockages all over again.

If this is a common occurrence for you, you should seek advice from a specialist at Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning. There are many benefits to regular drain clearing.

Avoiding Blockages

Whether you run a business or not, the buildup of waste and grease in your pipes will cause interruptions in your daily activities. They may start up as minor issues but can easily escalate into major problems that will require costly repairs. Blockages will cause slow water drainage, corrosion, flooding and sewage backup. They are commonly caused by a buildup of hair, grease, dirt, food, tree roots and small objects.

The particles trapped in your drains and pipes can also lead to bad odor due to molds and bacteria. This can contaminate the water, which is a biohazard to yourself, your family, guests, employees and customers.

If you run a business, clogged drains will cause interruptions in your overall service, thus, damaging your reputation and profit.

Preventing Cracks & Leaks

If there is too much buildup in your piping system, it can lead to leaks and corrosion. If this issue persists, it will lead to major problems where you will have to gut your home to replace your existing system.

Leaks from a drain full of wastewater will cause more damage than clean water. Because it contains harmful chemicals and bacteria, the water will cause discoloration to your walls and flooring. The overall clean-up cost for these damages is not cheap either.

It can be tough to detect broken drain lines. However, there are some sure signs that an average person can spot. The first indication is a bad odor. When you start smelling a foul stench around your home or lawn, there could be a leak in your drain line that is releasing toxic sewer gas.

How Often Should You Schedule Commercial Drain Clearing?

The frequency of your commercial drain clearing depends on the size of your household and property, as well as how regularly you use your piping system. Bigger households require more frequent clearing than smaller ones.

Despite that, you should have your pipes and drains cleaned at least once a year. To get a better picture of how you should maintain your system, you should talk to a plumber.

Ways to Maintain Your Piping Systems

On top of commercial drain clearing, there are many ways you can take to keep your drains and pipes healthy. Always be mindful of what you put down your sinks, toilets and drains. Make sure you have a protective filter to stop foreign particles from entering your system.

You should also pick up the habit of running hot water down your drains every week to clear up any buildup and run cold water when you use your garbage disposal.

These small steps can make a big difference in ensuring your system will run smoothly until the next scheduled commercial drain clearing.
