Sewer Cleaning and why it's important
Keep out that bad smell
There is no getting around it, sewers smell like crap. Pardon the pun but it's true. When your sewer access is left uncleaned for years, it can become much harder to get rid of that acrid smell. When you keep on top of the cleaning then the smell will be much more contained. The most obvious sign that your sewer drain needs to be cleaned is a bad smell coming from your p-trap.
Prevents clogs before they arise
When you keep your sewer cleaned earlier than necessary you will more than likely prevent issues that could otherwise manifest when cleaning is left undone. When you have a sewer inspection done and are in need of cleaning you could very well be preventing an overflow from happening at any of your drains. An overflow can be very unsanitary and is never fun to clean. Catching these issues ahead of time is much better for a homeowner. This is will save you a lot of frustration and money in the long run.
Healthier home for your family
When you keep your sewer drain clean you are in turn keeping your home clean and clear which is a much healthier environment for your family. The amount of bacteria removed when your sewer is kept clean is unbelievable. This becomes especially important when you have youngsters in the home. Young children and elderly do not have the immunity that a middle aged adult has so keeping things clean is very important.
Cheaper in the long run
I know it is easy to think that the cleaning of your sewer drain can wait until next year but in actuality if you stay on top of the cleaning then you will probably save money in the long run. Drain cleaning runs anywhere from $99 to $200 so even if you had that done once every two years it would still be much less than replacing a section of your sewer pipe. The cost that a plumber will charge for the repair of a sewer pipe will be upwards of several thousand dollars so why risk it?
