Drain Inspections, Cleaning & Maintenance

In today's blog, we're going to delve into a topic that's often overlooked but is crucial for the health and longevity of your home's plumbing system: drain cleaning. Jesse Stephens from Lanz Drain Cleaning and Underground Solutions recently discussed the significance of drain inspections and cleaning in an insightful conversation. Let's explore why keeping your drains in good shape is essential.


Understanding Drain Inspections

Drain cleaning begins with inspections using specialized cameras. These cameras come in various sizes, from tiny ones suitable for inch-and-a-half pipes to larger robotic ones for three-foot pipes. But why do you need these inspections in the first place?

Assessing the Health of Your Pipes

Your home's plumbing system is like any other, and it has a drainage system that plays a crucial role. Whether your home is old or brand new, a camera inspection can reveal the condition of your pipes. The inspection is particularly valuable in areas like East Central Illinois, where homes may have a mix of different pipe materials, from cast iron to clay, Orangeburg to PVC.

Preventing Unpleasant Surprises

Regular camera inspections can help homeowners and property owners get ahead of potential problems. Pipes can deteriorate over time due to factors like corrosion, rust, tree roots, and even household cleaners. Tree roots can infiltrate pipes, causing blockages and damage. Imagine the inconvenience of a sewer backup during a holiday dinner – not pleasant at all!

Identifying Red Flags

Wondering if you need a drain inspection? Look for signs like gurgling drains, slow drainage, strange smells, or if you have an older home that hasn't had its sewer line inspected. If you notice any of these issues, it's a clear indicator that a drain inspection is in order.

What If Tree Roots Are Found?

If tree roots are detected during an inspection, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to replace your entire plumbing system. Lanz Drain Cleaning offers solutions to cut out the roots and prevent their return. They even provide annual maintenance plans for those who aren't ready for permanent solutions.

Inside & Outside Cleanouts

A key aspect of the inspection process is having access to your pipes. Lanz Drain Cleaning can inspect both the outside and inside of your home's plumbing. They can even inspect cast iron pipes under your home without causing any mess, thanks to trenchless solutions.

Don't Wait Until It's Too Late

The importance of drain cleaning and inspections cannot be overstated. Waiting until a major issue arises can result in costly repairs and disruptions. Instead, take advantage of the free camera inspection offered by Lanz Drain Cleaning and Underground Solutions. Knowing the condition of your pipes allows you to plan for their maintenance and repair, ensuring a smooth and worry-free plumbing system.
