In order to keep our plumbing systems working to a high standard, we must maintain them and ensure that they are looked after properly. At Raymark Plumbing, we’ve put together 5 top tips you should follow to ensure you avoid problems with your drains.
Keep Drains Unclogged
Make sure that when you clear your clogged drains you are doing so properly. Many individuals use the wrong substances to clean their drains which can result in damage to the pipes. Bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and salt water are all natural and effective ways to successfully clear your drain pipes. Unclogged pipes mean that you don’t need to worry about built up bacteria or flooding.
Reduce Nasty Odors
It’s an unfortunate but true fact that if your drains aren’t cleaned regularly, they can begin to smell. This tends to be due to a build-up of bacteria and mold. Luckily, it can be avoided. While many natural and home-made remedies do work, they tend to only last on a short term basis. To have your drains cleaned thoroughly, you should call on the help of a professional.
Prevent Structural Damage
You may not be aware that your pipes are corroded and damaged beyond repair. That is why it’s important to have a professional check your pipes and replace them if need be. Damaged pipes can eventually cause structural damage such as flooding, mold, and dampness. Regular maintenance and checks will prevent these problems.
Improve Water Quality
Regular drain maintenance can improve the quality of your water. This is because the pipes are kept clean and bacteria free if regularly checked.
