Your drains could possibly cause property damage in your home. Your drains need regular maintenance to maintain their performance and the lifespan of your plumbing system. Poor maintenance could lead to clogs, back-ups or flooding which is not only inconvenient but also really expensive to clean up or repair. The following are signs that your drains need maintenance

1. Water Coming Into Your House

This one is pretty obvious. If water is getting into your house, then you definitely need to have your drains checked. If, for example, you have water coming into your tub after you flash your toilet, your drains have a problem.

2. Presence Of Mold And Mildew

Mold and mildew grow in the presence of moisture. If you notice them in your attic or other areas of your home, you probably have a drainage problem. Check the underside of the roof for any problems. If you do not take care of it, you may have to deal with the health issues associated with mold and mildew such as respiratory problems and triggered allergies. You may also be forced to replace your roof shingles and sheathing.

3. Cracks In The Foundation

It is common to have little cracks on the foundation of a house. They are mostly harmless. If, however, you notice bigger ones, they may be cause for concern. It is always important for homeowners to inspect their foundations in order to notice them. They may be a sign of drain problems. If the problem is not addressed promptly, you may incur more costs in repairs.

4. Flaking Of Walls

Check your wall especially the basement walls for white deposits. They are usually a sign of drain problems. Whitish or gray crust is a result of mineral deposits from evaporating water. It may be a cause of structural problems including damage to the foundation.

5. Bad Drain Smells

If your traps are clogged, then you will most probably notice unpleasant odors in your showers or kitchen. It may also be a sign that your pipes are broken.At Allen Service Plumbing Heating and Air, we offer AC repair, furnace service, and plumbing repair. We also have fast emergency service.
