Clogged drains are inconvenient and often require a professional to take care of the problem for good. This inconvenience can be tempting to put off but can cause serious damage to you and your property if you ignore them. Here are the top reasons why you should take care of your clogs asap.
This one may seem obvious, but putting off unclogging your pipes means water will have trouble passing through. This can cause your water pressure to be slower and even waste water backups that are a mess to clean up.
If you leave a clog for too long, harmful bacteria will begin to grow and impact your water. If your water is infected, it can become a serious health hazard to your family or building residents. Dirty water may also stain your appliances if left standing for too long.
Clogs in your pipeline mean added pressure from water getting trapped. This water needs to go somewhere and will often cause leaks in your pipeline. These leaks can impact your property’s interior and cause stains, warping, and flooding. Other than internal damage, leaks are more serious to repair than a simple clog – often requiring replacement.
If you let a clog sit, it will often dry out your lines and begin to stink. Because there is no moisture to soak up the scent of waste and rotting food, your property will begin to smell like it. Additionally, water that is sitting for too long can also create a bad odor.
Water that overflows as a result of a clog can cause serious damage to your property’s infrastructure, and if a leak is the result of your clog, it can be even worse. Water that is seeping into the walls, flooring, or ceiling can lead to cracks, mold, and other unwanted repairs.
