Are your drains running up to speed?

 

Are your drains running up to speed?If you ever wondered why getting your drains cleaned during the summertime is an important task, you should keep reading to find out how the process can be very beneficial to you and your home. A leak or a crack can occur all year round, but during the summertime things can get even worse.During the summer, the atmosphere is obviously hotter and more moist and people who have a lot of hair know how uncomfortable things can get, and so they cut their hair which often ends in the sink and goes into the drain. This is one reason why it is beneficial to have your drains cleaned, because hair can build up quite quickly and clog your pipes.

Applying a screen to block hair and other debris from flowing into your drains is a good option but if hair has piled up in your drain over time, then its time for you to call a professional who can restore the flow of water caused by hair blockage deep within the drain.

Another cause of drainage problems is attributed to a natural occurrence. The summertime is undoubtedly a time when trees and other plants begin to flourish, and underground their roots will often clog a sewer pipe or drain. Tree roots are attracted to the minerals that are in the water within drains and sewer pipes, so it is beneficial to keep drains clean during this time.

The summer time is also perfect for many social gatherings which often require lots of cooking. Getting rid of some of the leftovers is often left up to the garbage disposal, but it can accumulate excessive amounts of food scraps overtime and clog your drain. Grease also poses a problem as well, since hot grease will soon begin to solidify and cause water to slowly drain out of your sink and clog it. This is yet another reason why it is so important to have your drains cleaned during the summertime.
