Prevent Leaks to Your Roof and Flooding in Your Yard with Regular Drain Inspection

If you’re noticing seepage on your walls, don’t just sit and wait for your home to get the worst of it. Are you aware that you can prevent leaks to your roof and flooding in your yard with regular drain inspection? Most homeowners don’t know this. That’s why they ignore their drains until there’s an actual emergency.

Symptoms of Drain Problems

Regular drain inspection and cleaning ensure that you don’t run into an emergency during a party or when you are seriously ill. Don’t wait for the drain to be completely blocked.

Notice these signs of trouble:

  • A drain that keeps getting blocked. 
  • The nasty smell emanating from the drains.
  • Seepage around the drain pipes.
  • Wet patches in places where they shouldn’t be.
  • Drain Cleaning at Home

    There are some easy tricks you can use to keep your drains somewhat clean. These are good ideas that can help, but they don’t substitute a professional drain cleaning service.

  • Pouring hot, boiling water down the drain to clear away any junk trapped in the drain pipes. It also clears away the oil and grease sticking to the drain pipes. Boil extra water while making your green tea.
  • Make your own drain cleaner with baking soda and white vinegar. Pour a good amount of baking soda down your drain pipes. Follow it up with white vinegar. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Pour some more hot, boiling water.
  • Drain Inspection

    If the problem is still not resolved, it’s better to invest in a drain inspection through CCTV. A video camera will go inside your drain pipes to assess the situation inside and you’ll have an accurate idea of what’s causing the problem.  

    Drain inspection is available for both residential and commercial buildings. You will get a clear view of even the smallest drain (25-75mm) through a color camera using LCD lightning.

    How Regular Drain Inspections Help

    With regular drain inspection, you can take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Prevent minor problems from becoming serious. Deal with them when they are still minor. Drains take a lot of crap from us, literally. It’s natural for them to get blocked and even stop working altogether. With a regular drain inspection, you are aware of the drain’s wear and tear stage.
  • Avoid emergencies. Drain pipes are at a risk of bursting and as a homeowner, you might never know until it’s too late. With regular drain cleaning, you’d be able to prevent leaks to your roof and flooding in your yard.
  • Regular drain cleaning ensures that you and your family are safe. Waste decomposing in drain pipes poses certain health hazards. You can avoid it if you know what’s happening in your drain pipes.
  • Analyze reconstruction or renovation plans. If you’re adding another bathroom, it’s best to check whether the existing drain structure would be able to withstand the extra load.
