Dirty Drains Can Affect Your Family’s Health

  • Save

When it comes to cleaning, we all have a checklist that we follow to ensure that the house is clean. Floors, surfaces, the bathroom, etc. But what we often overlook are our drains. And when we don’t regularly give our drains the TLC they need, it can result in bacteria build-up and an odour that can overtake the house. Creating an unclean environment that can result in illness.

Your drains are an essential part of your household and are also the one place where a multitude of items accumulate. Such as food particles, hair, and even dirt. Therefore, cleaning your drains and ridding them of anything that can cause bacteria to breed and odours to be emitted, should be part of your cleaning checklist.

Dirty drains can play home to pests such as cockroaches and drain flies. As mentioned the bacteria, viruses and fungi thrive in dirty drains, which can cause illnesses to spread and cause family members to become ill.

Other benefits of regularly maintaining your drains include:
  • Improve the lifespan of the drain by minimising the damage that can accumulate over time.
  • Gets rid of bad odours by removing food particles and debris trapped in the drains.
  • Having drains free from debris ensures faster drainage and reduces future clogging.
  • Keeps repairs to a minimum as small issues are taken care of before they become big issues.

When it comes to why your drains start to smell, the likely culprit is the build-up of bacteria. When you consider everything that escapes down the drain. There is a good chance that these items will accumulate and clog the drain causing an odour. Smells often indicate a blockage, so this is a good time to clean your drains.

Making sure that your drains are clean and free from debris, bacteria, and pests is an important step in making sure that your home is clean, and your family is kept safe. For more information on Chemico please click on the link:https://www.facebook.com/ChemicoProducts
