The Importance of Regular Professional Drain Cleaning

Regular professional cleaning of your drains is crucial for their optimal function.

Frequent drain maintenance eliminates debris and buildup, ensuring smooth flow in both residential and commercial settings. Left untreated, pipes can become completely blocked, which not only causes frustration but may also result in sewage backing up, affecting the drains your home relies on.

Our advanced water jetting technology ensures we keep your drain lines clean efficiently, eliminating years of accumulated gunk from pipes. Our state-of-the-art camera technology identifies potential problems early, preventing emergencies. Routine preventative maintenance ensures the cleanliness and functionality of kitchen and bathroom drains.

Recommended Frequency for Drain Cleaning by Property Type

Residential Homes

For residential properties, yearly drain maintenance is crucial preventative care. Drain your system annually to remove build-ups like hair, soap residue, and food waste.

Keep an eye on bathroom and kitchen drains for slow drainage as it may signal the need for a clean. Pooled water or overflowing toilets require immediate cleaning; contact us for assistance.

Commercial Properties

High-use areas such as restaurant kitchens may need weekly or monthly drain cleaning to manage debris accumulation. In commercial settings, weekly cleaning is vital to prevent buildup and maintain drain efficiency.

Arrange for drain cleaning assessments to create a custom routine that meets your business’s unique needs. More frequent efforts to clean your drains are essential to protect your plumbing infrastructure from clogs and ensure its longevity.

Our commercial drain cleaning expertise enables us to recommend the optimal time for your next professional service; contact us to schedule an evaluation. Contact us today at 1300 349 338 to learn more.

Signs Your Drains Need Professional Attention

Various warning signs indicate the need for professional drain cleaning and maintenance:

  • Puddles near drain areas that won’t easily go down
  • Slow-draining fixtures such as sinks and showers, indicating clogs
  • Gurgling noises from pipes
  • Sewer odours around drains
  • Toilets that overflow
  • Frequent drain blockages

Noticing these signs suggests it’s time to clean your drains to prevent buildups. Neglecting to address them, clogs damage essential piping, worsening into dire situations and causing sewage backups into premises.

Burwood Plumbing has high-powered jetting equipment to thoroughly maintain your drain lines clearance. Our technicians also use drain cameras to inspect pipes and diagnose any underlying problems.

Make sure your plumbing remains trouble-free by keeping up with regular maintenance; ensure your system stays optimal with a swift call to our team at any sign of issues. We service residential and commercial customers throughout the Burwood area.

DIY Drain Cleaning Techniques vs Hiring a Professional

A clogged or slow-flowing drain should prompt you to call plumbing experts for reliable help. Methods like pouring boiling water inside your drain passages, using chemical drain cleaners, or mixing baking soda and vinegar can sometimes loosen minor clogs.

However, DIY methods, which do need clean procedures to address more than temporary fixes, come with limitations:

  • Household remedies often falter while removing stubborn clogs traveling through drain channels caused by debris like hair, grease, and tree roots.
  • Chemical drain cleaners can cause damage just a few feet above their entry point in your piping and harm waste water treatment systems if misused.
  • Using plungers or metal snakes without caution can cause pipe damage.

For persistent clogs or tough blockages, it’s safer to employ professional services like those offered by Burwood Plumbing. Our professional technicians use specialised techniques for cleaning your drains with high-pressure water jetting equipment, effectively clearing even the stalwart clogs and removing years of buildup.

We also conduct thorough drain sewer inspections using camera technology to identify underlying issues. From tree roots invading your drain and sewer lines to broken or misaligned joints, we diagnose problems precisely before they escalate to emergency plumbing situations.

Timely contact with professional drain cleaners can establish a preventative maintenance routine, curbing potential plumbing issues. Schedule professional drain cleaning services on a preventative basis by contacting Burwood Plumbing today at 1300 349 338. Our techs service residential and commercial customers throughout the Burwood area.

Proactive Maintenance to Prevent Future Drain Clogs

Alongside regular professional drain cleanings, there are several simple habits homeowners and businesses can adopt to help minimise clogs between scheduled services:

Proper Waste Disposal

Prevent clogs and buildup by avoiding washing fats, oils, and grease down the drain. Let cooked oils cool and dispose of them in the rubbish bin.

Employ sink strainers to trap food scraps, regularly emptying them to avoid clogs.

Monthly Hot Water Flushing

Occasional flushing of hot water down the drains can maintain pipe cleanliness. This can help melt accumulated grease and let water run clear, keeping pipe walls free of buildup. Adding a cup of baking soda to boiling water can boost the cleaning solution’s efficacy.

Mind What Goes Down Drains

Drains easily clog when inappropriate items like wet wipes, cotton swabs, dental floss, paper towels, feminine hygiene products and condoms are flushed. Always throw these in the bin instead.

Wondering 'should I clean my drains more frequently?' can lead to small routine changes that complement the proficient services offered by Burwood Plumbing.
