Why Clean Drains Are the Best Holiday Gift

bubbling-drain

Some of the biggest holidays of the year are just around the corner. Are you prepared? Hopefully, you are and if so we want to ask a follow-up question: is your plumbing prepared?

While that second query may sound a little strange, we promise that it is related. This is because, should you have some plumbing problems that you haven’t picked up on yet, they will come to call at the worst possible time this season, simply because of all the increased activity that this season brings to your sinks, drains and overall plumbing system.

One great way to make sure that part of your plumbing system is ready for the holidays is by scheduling drain cleaning services. Let us explain why.

What is a drain cleaning service?

Drain cleaning service refers to a type of service performed by a plumber in which they clear your drains of any and all build-up or clogs. In many cases, drain cleaning services follow an appointment when a clog needs to be cleared from a backed-up drain. However, drain cleaning service can also be used as a preventative measure to make sure that a clog is removed before it becomes a problem

Why should I schedule drain cleaning?

In our opinion, it is always better to be proactive when it comes to your drains. The last thing anyone wants to do is take a plunger to the kitchen sink in the middle of a holiday dinner while they are all dressed up.

By scheduling an appointment for drain cleaning, you are circumventing this incident. This is because a plumber will be able to get rid of any and all build up that could potentially form a solid clog later on.

A service like this is especially helpful for your kitchen sink which encounters a large amount of things such as coffee grounds, eggshells, food grease and more, that all join forces to form a rather stubborn clog. Drain cleaning will clear all of this away however and will leave your drains clean and clear for whatever gets thrown their way during the holidays.

Can’t I clean my drains myself?

While it can be tempting to try to clean your drains on your own, we strongly advise against doing so. This is because store-bought drain cleaners are neither healthy nor as helpful as they are portrayed to be. A professional plumber, on the other hand, is equipped with a powerful hydro jet which can and will dislodge build-up and scour your pipes clean and clear without damaging them as a drain cleaner liquid might.

And there you have it. Scheduling this plumbing service has all sorts of benefits for your pipes and your peace of mind this holiday season. In fact, you might even consider scheduling drain cleaning as a gift for yourself!
