The Benefits of Consistent Drain Maintenance 

Drain Maintenance

Many of our clients, both domestic and commercial, only think about their drains when things go wrong. However, if you maintain and monitor your drains consistently, you can catch potential issues before they become disasters– saving you time, money, and stress! The TWC team has put together some tips on how you can take care of your drains; read on for more information.

Daily Drain Habits

One of the most important daily habits that you should encourage is the safe disposal of material that can potentially block your drains. This includes coffee grounds, hair, cooking grease or oil, and soap scum. Putting signage in a workplace kitchen to remind employees of this is an excellent way to minimise the risk of blockages, unpleasant smells, or slow drainage. In any setting, providing proper disposal options for these materials can also encourage staff or cohabitants to make safer choices – this does not have to be expensive: sealable containers like old butter tubs are very well suited to the task.

Long-Term Drain Maintenance

Getting into the habit of inspecting your drainage periodically is also a useful way to catch any problems. The symptoms of a drain emergency are often obvious, like a foul odour or flooding, but there are other things to look out for that can give you an earlier warning. This includes slower drainage, leaves accumulating around outside drains, or an increase in groundwater.
