Every day, food, hair, hard water minerals, and grease end up going down your drains. All of these can cause buildup and drain clogs that can lead to serious damage to your pipes.

Fortunately, a summer drain cleaning in Brooklyn from Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Drain Cleaning will clear the debris out of your home’s drains and prevent costly repairs that are common when drains are neglected for a long period of time.

Without drain cleaning, clogged drains can lead to clogs, backups, plumbing leaks, and breaks in your pipes, and these problems can be expensive.

Why Do Drains Clog?

As summer starts, your family will be home more often, leading to more serious drain clogs. But an annual professional drain cleaning will leave your drains running smoothly and prevent future problems. Kids eating and playing at home all summer can also increase the amount of debris and grease that will go down your drains. This also increases the number of clogs you might experience. While there are some over-the-counter products that can dislodge clogs near the mouths of drains, these products can’t remove the buildup of minerals and grease that cling to the sides of your drains deep down.

As these minerals and grease thicken, other debris will inevitably get caught in your drains and clogs and backups will become more common. Rather than facing stressful, disgusting drain clogs and backup, we can help. Petri Plumbing’s professional cleaning will eliminate all debris from your drain, as well as any buildup. It’s easy to put off having your pipes cleaned until tomorrow. But as you wait, the risk of a costly repair increases. While simple preventive maintenance with a professional summer cleaning can ensure long life for your drains and an easy, stress-free summer for your family.

Benefits of Summer Drain Cleaning

The summer is supposed to be very enjoyable. No one wants to deal with common household troubles when the hot months of summer are here. However, just because summer has arrived does not mean that you should look the other way at plumbing problems or other related areas of contention in the home. Conducting a drain cleaning in your home is strongly suggested at the first sign of drain problems. In fact, there are several benefits to a summer drain cleaning.

Avoid Serious Plumbing Problems and Repairs

Consider that if you take care of the problems with the drain during the first stages, you can avoid a severe problem. No one likes to be inconvenienced, but there are times when this is unavoidable. Significant drain and plumbing woes are going to have to be dealt with at greater cost and inconvenience. Certainly, a major plumbing disaster is going to make a summer far less enjoyable.

A drain that empties out slowly is not normal unless it’s partially clogged. After all, clogs do not cure themselves. They have to be cleared out, and depending on the severity of the clog, only a professional service is going to be able to clear the drain.

Avoid Bacteria, Mold and Virus Growth

Clogged drains can start to grow bacteria, mold, and even viruses when left unattended. Over time, clogged drains can put your and your family’s health at risk. Regular drain cleaning blasts through the problem and leaves your home healthier and feeling fresh. Call Petri Plumbing today for all your drain cleaning needs before it compromise you and your family’s well-being.

Eliminate Foul Smells

Foul smells emerging from the inside of the drain pipes would be another instance in which cleaning out the drains is strongly advised. Often, the smells are the result of oils or other organic refuse that has been poured down a drain and is stuck to the sides of the pipes. As the organic matter breaks down, foul smells emerge from the pipes. Not very many summer parties are going to be enjoyable when the interior of the home smells like rotting oil.

Summer Drain and Sewer Maintenance

For Brooklyn residents, summer brings both outdoor enjoyment and the potential challenges of thunderstorms that can lead to overflowing sewers and drains. Here are essential tips to maintain drains and prevent water damage during the summer:

  • Regularly examine drains for grates to prevent hair and debris from causing issues
  • Check crawlspaces and foundations for signs of water accumulation, as excessive moisture can lead to drain problems during storms
  • Dispose of food waste properly during outdoor activities like barbecues
  • Educate children about responsible toilet use to avoid unintentional clogs
  • Eliminate litter near sewer drains to prevent severe backups and water damage
  • Minimize water use during storms to reduce strain on already burdened water systems

When you prioritize your drains, you end up with a healthier home and fewer plumbing repairs.
