How Often Should I Have My Drains Cleaned?
Drains are something homeowners and business owners only think about when there’s a problem. But the best time to have them looked at it is actually when they are working well. This way, problems can be prevented, which saves a person money. If it has been a while since you’ve had your drains cleaned or if you’ve never had them looked at, Classic Aire Care can do it cheaply and ensure that your sewer system works properly.
There really isn’t a schedule for how often a homeowner should have their drains cleaned; instead, it’s done on an “as needed” basis. But if you live in an older home that has a pipe system that is 40 years or older, it is a good idea to have the pipes regularly inspected (approximately once per year). This is when system begin to wear down and problems can form. An inspection can identify problem areas and work to fix them before it results in a burst pipe.
For other homeowners, there are certain signs to look for to determine if it’s time for a drain cleaning. If drains are slow to clear, if toilets are slow to flush or back-up regularly, or if there are pools of water around your pipe system, a St. Louis plumber can come and inspect the issue. By quickly fixing an issue, you can prevent costly repairs in the future.
At Classic Aire Care, we also only use drain cleaners that are safe for your pipe system. Over the counter cleaners tend to be very harmful on pipes and can ultimately lead to a weakening of the system. By working with an experienced plumber, you can avoid these problems.
