Drain cleaning can be done on a preventative maintenance schedule or an as-needed emergency basis. Preventative maintenance is beneficial, in that it avoids costly backups and pipe damage that could result from buildup and serious blockages. Regular drain cleaning also extends the life of the pipes by removing corrosive materials that can damage the pipes over time.
The other method is to wait until you are experiencing slow or clogged drains before calling for drain cleaning. This may work just fine for some residential customers, but it can cost business revenue if you are running a business and have to shut down when the drains aren’t working. Even as a residential customer, you may find that waiting until there is a blockage means dealing with a problem when it is usually the least convenient. You could miss work or an important family gathering, for example. The worst case scenario is a backup or overflow that ruins your belongings and flooring. Preventing this type of problem is far better than dealing with the aftermath of a disaster.
