Home Drain Maintenance: The Importance of Maintaining Domestic Drains

5th July 2023

This blog will detail the importance of regular maintenance for your home drainage systems as well as the key benefits that come with this.

Why Is It Important to Maintain Your Drains?

You know what they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and the same applies to your drainage system. Regular maintenance is important for protecting the integrity of your drains and spotting issues early on that could become larger and lead to costly repairs down the road. Whilst the maintenance intervals for drain systems are dependent on your average usage, typically monthly drain maintenance checks should be sufficient for the average household.

Key Benefits of Regular Drain Maintenance?

Here are some of the key benefits that come with frequent drainpipe maintenance.

Faster And More Efficient Drains

Slow-moving water is often an indicator that your pipes are blocked or not working at maximum capacity. Routine checks on your drainage system will allow them to run more efficiently and help to tackle any problems in the early stages of them occurring.

Presents Foul Odours

When blockages occur, it’s likely that foul odours are not too far behind. Not only is this unpleasant but it is also unsanitary for those occupying the space. Regular drain maintenance within the home can prevent this from happening and leave your home odour free.

Cotswold Drainage is proud to possess specialist equipment to efficiently deal with drainage issues, including our drain smell diagnostics equipment that accurately locates the problem area within your home. If you think your drains are leaving a foul smell, get in touch today!

Prevent Leaks and Damage

Preventative drain maintenance also helps avoid water leakage, which can subsequently damage your home and severely impact the overall infrastructure of the building when left untreated. Not only is this a large inconvenience, but the cost of such repairs is often expensive to correct the extensive damage done. Save yourself money in the long run by keeping your drains regularly maintained.

If you’re worried that your drainage system requires some repairs, submit an enquiry with a member of the team today and we’ll get them looked over in no time.

Reduces Risk of Blocked Drains

Some of the main causes of blocked drains include toilet tissue, hair, product build-up and cooking grease and oil. These are all everyday items that sometimes find their way into drainpipes and can cause significant blockages when left untreated. By remaining consistent in your home drain maintenance checks, you can reduce the risk of issues occurring and the associated consequences that they bring.
