What are Signs You Need to Clean Your Drains?
There are several different signs to look for to see if your drains need to be cleaned. One of the more common signs is if the water is taking an unusually long time to drain. Another sign is if the water in your toilet is backing up. This is a clear indication that some type of clog is blocking the drain. Also, your toilet may not completely fill up with water due to decreased water pressure; if this is the case, a clog may be the cause of the problem.
What Causes Drain Clogs?
To successfully prevent clogged drains, you will need to first understand what causes the problem. If you work in a restaurant, be mindful of what enters your drains on an everyday basis; putting in foods that are high in starch, such as pasta and potatoes, can cause your drains to clog over time. Pouring greasy foods down the drain can cause the drain to become clogged over time as well. The drains in restrooms are easily clogged, especially with the amount of visitors passing through every day. The sinks can become clogged with hair and other items that can block the normal flow of your pipe system.
How Often Should Your Drains Be Cleaned?
Regular drain cleaning is recommended to help prevent debris in your drains from turning into clogs. For commercial sites with a high volume of visitors or staff, an annual drain clean is ideal.
