Reap the Benefits of a New Year’s Drain Cleaning Appointment for All of 2018

New Pipes

The holidays are just around the corner and the New Year isn’t far off either, so there’s a good chance that family get-togethers, tasty meals, and fun summer activities are at the forefront of your mind right now.

But with the New Year comes a new opportunity to save money around the house, keep your plumbing maintained, and deal with things like clogs and slow drains.

And the good news is that getting an annual drain cleaning right at the beginning of the New Year means you’ll reap the benefits for the rest of 2018.

Who Doesn’t Want to Save Money Next Year?

Save MoneyDrain cleaning is a minor expense, especially when you compare it to all the ways it can save you money in the long run.

For one thing, unattended clogs can weaken and erode pipes, and this can lead to cracks, breaks, and leaks.

And not only do leaks waste a precious resource, but they end up costing you on your water bills.

Get Rid of those Clogs for Good

Clogged PipeClogs can happen in any pipe in your house, because any type of foreign material (aside from water) can cause a blockage. In the kitchen, common culprits are food scraps and grease.

In the bathroom, things like hair and soap scum can even clog up drains, not to mention bathroom tissue, garbage, and other things that get flushed sometimes.

Blockages in the pipes don’t just cause complete clogs, however, and they can also lead to slow-running drains that seem to take forever to empty. Annual drain cleaning will remove any of these objects from your pipes and ensure that water flushes and drains properly from all your sinks, tubs, toilets, and showers.

Keep Your Home Safe & Without Noises

Unwanted NoiseHave you ever hopped in the shower and ended up standing in a pool of water by the time you’re done?

This type of backup is caused by slow-running drains, and when that happens, it can create an environment that’s ideal for the growth of mold, fungi, bacteria, and other pathogens that you don’t want in your house.

Drain cleaning is the best way to prevent the clogs and blockages that lead to standing water. Clogged drains don’t just run slowly, they can also make annoying noises.

When it comes to the squealing you hear, the reason for this is that blockages in the pipes narrow the passages, so when water passes through the narrowed openings, it creates pressure and makes a great deal of noise. Cleaning out your drains will remove the blockages, thereby preventing the pressure and the noises.

Plus, Regular Maintenance Will Keep Up the Value of Your Home

Clean WaterMost home buyers will look for any way they can to save money, and one thing you can do to ensure that your Penrith, NSW house doesn’t lose value is to keep up with regular maintenance, and that includes annual drain cleaning.

This is because nobody buying a house wants to have to worry about major expenses and repairs, especially with the plumbing, so your drain cleaning will make sure this doesn’t become a problem in the future.

The holidays and 2018 will be here before you know it, and there’s no better time to start planning for the home maintenance that’s to come.

Enjoy the holidays this year, but make sure you set aside time to schedule an annual drain cleaning if you want to enjoy all the benefits we’ve talked about here today, like saving money, keeping your home cleaner, and maintaining the value of your house.
