Your drainage system is an integral part of your plumbing system. Drains remove waste water from your home to help maintain cleanliness and hygiene. Most home owners do not give their drains the attention they deserve.
Over time, drains accumulate dirt, dust, and hair. If you do not periodically clean your drains, they may become clogged.
A clogged drain is a recipe for disaster. Blockages in drains can cause flooding and lead to water damage. If you end up with serious water damage, you may have to move out while the damage is being repaired.
To prevent problems, have your plumbing contractor inspect and maintain your drains at least once every two years. However, if you notice a problem such as water draining slowly or a strange smell coming from your drains, schedule an inspection straight away.
Sewer lines are usually buried deep underground. There is no way of knowing if there is a budding problem or not. During an inspection, your contractor will lower down a camera into your drain line to identify the location and severity of clogs.
