Why Are Clogged Drains Hazardous?
If you have clogged drains, getting them fixed as soon as possible is essential. Clogged drains are an inconvenience, but more than that, they can pose a threat to the household. Luckily, a timely and efficient drain cleaning in St. Louis, MO from Nu Flow St. Louis can help you avoid the following risks and hazards.
The blocked drain can lead to water contamination. The water from the blocked drain can overflow into your home, containing bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants that can cause serious illness. It also poses a risk of mold growth in your home. While you’ll need mold remediation services for the other issue, our drain cleaning services can help make sure you won’t have to come across a blocked drain in your home for a long while.
If you're not ventilating your kitchen, the smell from a blocked drain can be particularly unpleasant. Additionally, bacteria that cause bad smells tend to thrive in moist environments, such as those found in sewers or drains. Not only is it likely that there's some food buildup in your sink, but this can also indicate that your pipes are rotting and needing replacement. Luckily, our drain cleaning company also specializes in pipe replacement and repairs.
The blockage will make it difficult for the water to drain completely and efficiently. This can cause water to back up and create a mess in your house. It also can cause damage to your pipes, floor, walls, and ceiling. The longer the water sits in the drain pipe, the more damage it causes. Many types of clogs can be addressed via drain snaking, but our team can also utilize hydro jetting for the more stubborn clogs.
As the water stays in your drains, it can cause structural damage to your home. Water damage to your home's foundation is a major concern because it can lead to other problems like mold and decay. More than the water damage, the structural damage can threaten your safety – all the morse reasons that a clogged drain is dangerous.
