Why You Need Preventative Maintenance for Your Drains in Reading

Regular Drain Cabling Will Help Prevent Clogs

Are you sick of dealing with drain clogs? Of course you are – because no one likes having them around. They’re messy, they’re annoying, and they’re an all around inconvenience for your entire household.

You have a choice, though. You can keep dealing with these drain clogs or you can sign up for Essig’s preventative maintenance. This maintenance involves the frequent cabling of your pipes to stop serious clogs from backing up into your home.

The amount of times we will come to your home to perform this cabling will depend on the history of your pipes’ conditions. The maintenance will also differ from drain line to drain line because some will need more attention than others.

If you are scheduling maintenance more than twice a year, our drain cleaning experts here at Essig will tell you that it may be wiser to consider a more long-term approach.

Not sure if a long-term drain cleaning maintenance is for you? We’ll help you figure that out!

Factors to Consider When Deciding on Long-Term Drain Cleaning

  1. How much longer do you think you will be living in that house? You can use that number to factor in maintenance vs. repair costs. How do they measure up? Do you think it will be worth it?
  2. Do you think that fixing the problematic sewer line will benefit you if/when you decide to sell your home?
  3. How bad is your back up? If they are clogged that the lines are constantly overflowing, then you need a better drain cleaning solution than the one you currently have.

Are you ready to stop drain clogs in their tracks? If so, call Essig today!
