Drain Maintenance Services: Key to a Safe Plumbing System

Regular drain maintenance is essential for keeping your plumbing system in good working order. Not only does it prevent frequent blockages and backups, but it also ensures the overall health and safety of your home. In this blog post, we’ll explore the importance of professional drain maintenance services and how they help keep your drains clear and odour-free.

The Importance of Regular Drain Maintenance Services

Drain maintenance is often overlooked as a necessary part of home maintenance, but it is just as important as regular cleaning and upkeep of other areas of your home. A healthy and well-maintained plumbing system is essential for the safety and integrity of your home, and regular drain maintenance is the key to achieving this.

Prevention of Blockages and Backups

One of the most obvious benefits of drain maintenance is the prevention of frequent blockages and backups. This can cause unpleasant odours, slow drainage, and even water damage to your home. By scheduling regular drain maintenance services, an experienced plumber can identify and remove any potential blockages before they become a problem.

Odour-Free Drains

Drain maintenance also helps to keep your drains odour-free. Over time, debris and other materials can accumulate in your drains, causing unpleasant smells to permeate your home. Drain cleaning services can help remove this buildup, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean.

Cost Savings

Regular drain maintenance is a cost-effective way to ensure the longevity of your plumbing system. Rather than paying for costly repairs when a problem occurs, this practice can prevent issues from arising in the first place.

What do Drain Maintenance Services Include?

Inspection and Cleaning

Professional drain maintenance services typically include a thorough inspection of your plumbing system followed by a full drain cleaning. This ensures that any potential issues are identified and addressed before they become major problems.

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a powerful method of cleaning your drains, using high-pressure water jets to remove debris and buildup laying deep inside your drain pipes. This is an effective way to remove tough blockages and ensure that your drains are completely clean.

How Often Should You Hire Drain Cleaning Services

Drain cleaning services are effective for a variety of drains, including kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, shower and bathtub drains, and even main sewer lines. Knowing when to schedule service can be a bit confusing when there are no visible signs of blockages. However, regular maintenance is a preemptive measure for upholding the health and functionality of your plumbing system. In this section, we’ll explore the recommended frequency for scheduled drain maintenance and the factors that influence it.

Recommended Frequency

For a typical residential home, it is recommended to schedule drain maintenance services every 1-2 years. This frequency ensures that any potential issues are identified and addressed before they become major problems.
Factors that Influence Service Frequency

The frequency of drain maintenance services can be influenced by a variety of factors, such as the number of people living in the property, the type of food being prepared in the kitchen, and the type of shower and bath products being used. Properties with more people or heavy usage will require more frequent cleaning and servicing.

Signs that Indicate it’s Time for Maintenance

Several signs indicate that it is time to schedule drain maintenance services. These include slow-draining water, unpleasant odours, and visible blockages. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to schedule a service with your nearby plumber as soon as possible.

FAQs

Can I perform drain maintenance myself or do I need a professional?

While some simple drain cleaning tasks can be performed by homeowners, more complex maintenance and repairs should be handled by a professional plumber. A professional plumber will have the tools, equipment, and knowledge necessary to properly maintain and repair your drainage system.

Are there any warning signs that indicate I need drain maintenance services?

Some warning signs that indicate you may need drain maintenance services include slow draining sinks and toilets, frequent drain blocks, bad odours, and water backups.

How can I maintain my drains between professional maintenance visits?

  • To maintain your drains between professional maintenance visits:
  • Avoid disposing grease, oil, and large food particles down the drain
  • Run hot water through your sink and shower drains once a week
  • Use a plunger to clear minor blockages
  • Use a drain strainer to prevent hair and other debris from entering your drains

Excellent4.9 Based on 200 reviews from review us onDamian Mugridge ★★★★★ This is the first time I have used Kalamunda plus and I am extremely satisfied with the service.They were able to fit me in straight away to quote on an evaporative air conditioning service.I received a courtesy call when on their way and were extremely professional and friendly, taking photos on the unit and provided price options to choose from before agreeing to the work.They repaired a fault cleaned the unit. They were quick and did the work for a good price.They showed me after photos to and provided general advice which was really helpful.Thanksangie duke ★★★★★ I felt very stressed when our 20 year old gas storage heater suddenly decided to die … but I needn’t have worried! We rang Kalamunda Plumbing and from that first contact with Vicky with her lovely voice and calm, capable manner we knew we were in the best of hands. Someone came out within a few hours and after assessing that the unit was indeed dead, advised us on a replacement - a gas instantaneous hot water unit. It was going to take a few days before it could be installed due to someone from the Gas board having to come out to adapt something in the meter box. Horror of horrors, the thought of no hot water for 2 or 3 days, I couldn’t believe it! - but again I needn’t have worried as a small temporary electric storage hot water unit was linked up to the house at no extra charge. WOW! That was service!!! Our new instantaneous unit was fitted within a few days and everyone involved in the job was extremely professional and couldn’t have been more helpful … thus turning a potentially stressful event in to a pain free and pleasant experience.
