It can be a daunting task to call professionals when you are experiencing drain and sewer issues. From residential to commercial properties, it is a common misconception that sewer repairs have to be an invasive process that include damaging services which leave customers with more costly repairs and renovations. In the fast-paced society we live in, there is no time for home and business owners to be inconvenienced with sewer issues that cause disruption in your family, employees, or customers’ lives. Whether you own a home or business, here are four ways to save on sewer repairs.
1. Don’t Do-it-Yourself
You are finishing up bath-time with your kids when you notice that the bath drain is draining slowly or not at all. Do you run out to your local Target and grab a do-it-yourself drain cleaner?
The answer should be no. With various drain cleaners available at our fingertips, it can be tempting to attempt to fix drainage issues on your own, but over-the-counter drain cleaners contain harmful chemicals that do not fix the problem. These chemical solutions instead mask the issue leaving you with high sewer repair costs in the future - not to mention depositing harmful chemicals that coat your drain.
2. Find a Company That Understands your Area
There are many companies that service many areas of your state, but it is important to find one that understands the area that you live in and your community’s needs. At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we service many areas in Washington by understanding each community’s unique pipeline systems and features that keep them functional year-round.
3. Understand What Your Property Needs
Whether your property is a home or business, it has specific needs that should be addressed during the sewer repair process. Different communities have different sewer systems that range in age and materials. Understanding your property begins with a quick and easy sewer camera inspection that will identify what kind of materials your system uses as well as any and all problems within it.
4. Schedule Maintenance
Maintaining your pipelines with trenchless technologies make it achievable to stay proactive about your sewer system’s health and leave you with no evidence of repairs. Trenchless technologies are always affordable and environmentally friendly. Services range anywhere from hydro jetting to pipe relining. Hydro jetting is just one of the many trenchless services that can be performed regularly which will diminish the need for any sewer repairs.
