Dangers to your Drains in the Summertime

A drainage problem in your property will quickly create blockages and ongoing odours.

Drain maintenance is not something that you should wait until the winter months for, or until you face your first storm. There are many ways to quickly intervene when you start to notice drainage problems across your property.
Whether you’re a homeowner or business owner, regular drain maintenance during the summer season will help to prepare your pipes for the winter months. Here are some of the top dangers towards your drains throughout the summer sun.

  • Bacteria:
    Bacteria is a serious problem for your drains throughout the summer months. When the hotter summer temperatures begin to radiate heat on an area that has not treated properly, it generates bacteria, mold and germs which seep their way into your home. Mold and bacteria quickly cause nasty odors in drains throughout the summer season.
  • Problems with your drains moving slowly:
    Not having adequate drainage across your property makes it difficult for you to do anything from completing the dishes to taking a shower. When you started to notice that your sinks and showers are beginning to drain slowly or starting to clog, this could be the signs of a greater issue throughout the property that could affect your plumbing and one day lead to ongoing odors and concerns for your plumbing.
  • Drain maintenance is required:
    Drain maintenance can be done with a series of over-the-counter cleaning materials but these could sometimes be externally detrimental for your plumbing and health. These over-the-counter materials quite often cause a series of damages that affect your pipes. You could end up paying a series of expensive costs in order to maintain your pipes.

Rather than wasting your money on these products which could be detrimental for your home, one of the best courses of action that you can take is to speak to an expert who knows drains and plumbing.

Scheduling regular summer maintenance will make sure that you enjoy a fast way to clear out your drains with quick services and dedicated solutions for removing clogs.

Having drains cleaned out regularly and making sure that your pipework is properly flushed, will make sure that your plumbing remains in good working order over the long term.

Preparing for the winter months and making sure that you get regular summer maintenance will keep your pipes clear and help you to spot the signs of damage early on.

A number of issues such as trees growing through your pipes, ongoing food clogs and more build up over the winter season and it’s a good idea to consider fixing up these issues when the weather starts to get warmer.

This is a time when drains are often running at their best and during the summer months are the perfect time when the ground is soft and it’s easy to perform drain repairs and unblocking services.
