The Importance of Drain Cleaning

Think of your home’s drain system as a vital part of the house you never really see or notice. Without it, how would you get rid of waste water? When a drain system works properly, as it should, you’re able to get rid of waste water from your sinks and showers in a clean and efficient manner. If and when the drains get clogged, you’ve got a problem on your hands. That’s when you end up calling Mike Testa Plumbing to come take a look.

The importance of drain cleaning cannot be underestimated. You don’t want the system to “back up” to the point where there’s water– and other stuff–coming into your home “from below” and flooding your bathroom, kitchen or other room(s).

How do you know if your drains even need a proper cleaning? For starters, have you noticed that water takes a longer time to drain down in the bathtub or sink? If so, that’s a good reason to call Mike Testa Plumbing– get it looked at and fixed before it gets out of hand.

If you’re the type of person who thinks nothing of sending anything down the drain, including bacon grease, eggshells, paper towels, condoms and/or paints, then you’d be smart to have Mike Testa Plumbing do a professional drain cleaning. In general, grease, fats and oils are all things that can clog drains, and while most people don’t intentionally send those things down their drains, things like salad dressings, ice cream, and even gravy can build-up over time causing drain problems.
