Tips on How to Avoid Water Damage & Plumbing Problems

Spring and summer season is prone to bring some torrential downpours if the early rains of spring are any indication. The rain is welcome for many throughout the coming season but water damage is not something that homeowners will ever look forward to.

In fact, this year, Drainworks Plumbing reports that many more homeowners are experiencing sewer backups, partially due to an unusually great amount of precipitation. The worst thing about this plumbing problem is that even when the rain subsides, the water and sewage seepage can be excessive and can cause a great deal of damage to your home, specifically to the basement.

Here’s a few ways tips prevent drain problems and minimize damage from excess water:

Drain Inspection

DrainWorks Plumbing Inc., having been in business for over 17 years, encourages their customers to have their drain lines inspected using specialized inspection methods. Their uniquely designed camera can inspect a plumbing line to ensure that concerns get addressed before it becomes a major problem with plumbing.

Camera Detection

Specialized camera equipment behaves like “eyes in the drain line,” explained Terry Cord, owner and founder of DrainWorks. “We find exactly the scope and detail of any possible drainage issues.” The camera will also reveal any portions of your drain line that have been compromised by tree roots, for example.

“Roots and obstructions can make your plumbing problem even worse and needs to be detected.” he added.

DrainWorks services their customers with a crew of skilled service pros on call 24-7.

Avoid Cleanup and Restoration

Doing a thorough cleanup and restoration after a flood and sewage back up can certainly be an unwelcome and unexpected expense. For many homeowners, by the time the damage has been done, it’s a hard lesson learned. In order to save yourself additional costs, DrainWorks suggests that homeowners be proactive with a drain inspection.
