You've probably heard the phrase "spring cleaning" before, but how much do you really know about it? Did you know, for example, that spring cleaning traditions have roots in the Catholic religion, as well as Judaism, and Persian culture? Did you know that major cleaning in the home was historically reserved for springtime because winter was thought to leave behind such a mess?
Another thing you may not know about spring cleaning is that you've probably been neglecting your plumbing when it comes to your spring cleaning. Read on to learn a bit about how drain cleanings and sewer cleanings can help your plumbing system last longer and save you money!
When Was Your Last Drain Cleaning?
If it's been more than six months since your last drain cleaning, you may start to notice unpleasant smells coming from your drains. If it's been over a year, then chances are you're probably seeing that your drains are emptying slower of that you can't seem to get rid of the clog in that one sink.
If it's been so long since your last drain cleaning that you can't even remember when it was, call Magic Plumbing right away to speak with a drain cleaning professional!
Drain cleaning can have many benefits on your plumbing system, including:
- Clearing stubborn or recurring clogs.
- Lowers your risk of dealing with a plumbing emergency.
- Eliminates slow drains.
- Reduces foul odors from rotting food in your drains.
- Gives your plumber a chance to inspect the drain and make sure there’s nothing wrong with it.
Why Not Schedule a Sewer Cleaning Too, While You’re at It?
Now we know you may be thinking "I'm already getting my drains cleaned, why should I bother with the sewer lines?" You may not be aware of the importance of regular sewer cleanings, because the truth is, no one really talks about it.
Sewer cleanings can help to not only eliminate stubborn clogs but to prevent them from coming back anytime soon. One popular method of sewer cleaning is called Hydro jetting."
In hydro jetting, the highly-pressurized stream of water cleans the pipe walls of all mineral deposits, scale buildup, and other sludge that can collect and cause the pipe to narrow. That buildup in pipes often leads to a clog, which can cause a pipe to crack (or even burst), depending on the severity.
