Drains – sewer, storm, and floor – do their job quietly, often unnoticed by you. But when they become clogged, they make their presence known. Plugged sewer drains can create soggy areas in your yard or, even worse, allow sewage water to back up into basements, sinks, and showers.

You can prevent a smelly problem or major damage to your plumbing system by regularly contracting a professional to clean your drains. Here are some benefits of using a professional drain cleaning service:

Simple tools like a plunger and manual auger may work for some drain clogs. Chemical drain cleaner helps, but these chemicals may prove harmful to your plumbing system. Only a professional drain cleaning service has both the equipment and expertise to effectively clean your pipes and maintain proper water flow through your system. Consider adding professional drain cleaning to your annual maintenance regimen.
