Why are clean drains important?

The benefits of a residential drain cleaning

 

Annapolis PlumberKeeping your drains clean can help save you money each year in repair bills to your plumbing system. Neglected drains can quickly lead to the loss in integrity of the pipes, resulting in a break that could cause a major inconvenience for the homeowner. Our plumbers can inform you of the reasons why it is so important to keep your drains clean. This is an important step to take if you don't want to deal with clogged drains.

One of the most common causes of a clogged drain begins right in the kitchen. Whether you own a garbage disposal or not, food particles can easily make their way down the drain, where over time they get trapped in certain areas. As the clogged food attracts more particles, it makes it difficult for the water to make its way down the drain. Slow draining sinks are the first sign of trouble, and if you allow the clog to remain, it could affect the way your garbage disposal functions. Our plumbers will clean your pipes and make certain all the debris is flushed away.

Annapolis PlumberWhen a drain is clogged, many homeowners purchase over the counter drain cleaning chemicals. Many of these products are not effective, the one thing they can do is deteriorate the drain pipe. When the chemicals remains trapped in the drain, they wear away the pipe from the inside, breaking down the strength of the pipe over time.

The drains in your shower probably get the most abuse through the year. Every day the soap residue, hair, and dirt all travel down the drain with the water. Many times chunks of soap make their way down the drain and become lodged in the pipe. As more debris and contaminants come in contact with the soap, it acts like a magnet attracting debris to that area.

Our drain cleaning technicians will get to the clog and free it from the drain so the water can flow freely once again.

Why Is My Faucet Dripping?

What Causes My Faucets To Drip?

Faucet RepairYour faucets drip for a number of different reasons, and each one must be addressed before scheduling a faucet repair service. You may think that the repair is done, but you may find that the repair needs more work after the faucet begins dripping again.

The Faucet Linkage

The handles on the faucet must have the right stems so that the water can be turned off completely. There are many times when the faucet will drip simply because the stem does not close off the water completely. If you have a hard time pushing the faucet handle, you need to get it fixed. Also, you may need to have the faucets adjusted if they seem loose.

The Hoses

There are times when the hoses harbor water because of a bad connection. You need to ask a plumber to check on the hoses to make sure that they are dry when the faucet is not running. If you can feel the coolness or heat of the water in the hose, you need to ask a plumber to check the shut off valve on the sink. There are times when the faucet will not completely shut off after every use.

The Water Pressure

The water pressure in your house could be the cause of dripping in your faucets. If you have incredibly strong water pressure in your house, you need to make sure that you have faucets that can handle the pressure. If you have concerns about the water pressure, you may need to make sure that the water company knows about the problem. There are times when the water company is responsible for the increased water pressure in the home.

Working with a professional plumber can help you get your faucets working properly. Check each part of the system to find the real problem so you can make the dripping stop.
