After a number of years of using the same drains, they can begin to smell or drain less efficiently. This is especially true for kitchen sinks where food particles build up. Thankfully, New Canadian Drain does drain cleaning in Toronto that you can take advantage of. What, exactly, are the benefits of having your drain professionally cleaned?
It Works Better
Many people often don’t notice how their drains become less efficient over time. It’s easy to miss when the changes in draining ability are so gradual. Whether you notice or not, we’re here to tell you that if you’ve gone years using the same drain without having it cleaned, it’s not doing its job as well as when it was new.
Grease and food particles that get washed down the kitchen drain begin to line the insides of the pipes. After a long time of slowly building up, the thick layer of gunk makes it hard for water to get through. The circumference of the pipe gets noticeably smaller. It’s easy to tell your drain needs to be cleaned if the water slowly begins to pool in the sink while you’re washing up. If this is a sudden change, you may have a clog. However, if it’s been getting worse over time, it’s because drain is just too dirty to keep up with a steady stream of water anymore.
It Smells Better
The next problem with a dirty kitchen drain is that it can start to smell. It smells when you’ve got rotten particles of food, grease, and other contaminants trapped in your drain. The smell often becomes apparent while running hot water, as particles and gasses from the drain escape in the steam. Cleaning up a dirty drain will make this smell disappear. However, that’s not all if will do. It will also make your drain safer by removing bacteria from your kitchen.
As you might imagine, breathing in the aforementioned particles and gasses from your drain isn’t good for your health. Neither is allowing a dirty drain to contaminate your dishwater. Do you know what loves food particles? Bugs and bacteria do.
Having your drain professionally cleaned lowers the amount of bacteria hanging out in your kitchen drain. And, if there’s any part of the house where cutting down on bacteria is optimal, it’s the kitchen. After all, you don’t want bacteria where you’re preparing food for you and your family.
