Regular maintenance goes a long way towards keeping your sewer lines running in optimal condition. Video inspections performed routinely is key to preventing untimely disruption and emergencies. At Marv’s Plumbing, our technicians can carry out comprehensive inspections using the latest camera equipment and state-of-the-art technology to find both immediate concerns and potential future problems without having to dig up your precious yard, lawn or garden.
Here are 5 benefits of routine drain inspections:
1. For Homeowners, Get A Copy For Future Reference
Homeowners should stay on top of their sewer line system. The most recent copy of a sewer inspection can be used for future references, i.e., current pipe condition, pipe material and overall layout to make repairs easier and faster than without.
2. A Well-Maintained Property Has A Higher Value
Video sewer inspections can be good for owners of older homes, as a “certificate of good health” can prove to be a big plus when you want to sell your house in the future. Prospective buyers will want to see proof that a property is well-maintained, and a reference can do just that.
If you’re a buyer, an inspection can eliminate doubts and add to the price negotiation table in your favor.
3. Prevent Major Issues Before They Happen
Plumbing emergencies usually start small and unnoticed. Small leaks can develop, roots can get into the joints and invade your pipes, or calcified debris can get stuck and grow over time. You won’t see these problems as more often than not, your pipes are located underneath the ground, but a sewer inspection can find these faults and show you exactly where they are located.
4. Protect Your Family’s Health
Broken, malfunctioning and defective sewer systems can prove to be detrimental to you or your family’s health. When left unchecked, your walls or flooring can be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold and mildew, which turns to pathogen, virus and serious health concerns. If you start noticing a foul smell in the drains, then it may be time to call a technician for a routine camera inspection.
5. Keep Your System Running Smoothly
Regular drain inspections can reveal foreign bodies within the sewer lines, which can be retrieved as soon as possible to prevent contamination. Marv’s Plumbing & Heat experts can keep your sewer and water lines working and saves you money down the road through routine camera inspections and performing drain cleaning whenever necessary.
