Many people in the last few years have questioned whether or not french drains or any other type of drains for that matter, are actually effective. We always say the same thing, these types of drains have been used for centuries. It’s not that drains per se don’t work. What you need to be asking yourself is why your particular drain doesn’t seem to work properly. There could be a bunch of different reasons for that. One of them is the lack of maintenance. We want to help you point out and solve all of the issues that you could have with your existing fixtures.
What We Do In Drain Inspections
There are actually a couple of things that we’re on the lookout for in drain inspections. Obviously, we’re going to want to make sure that there is no debris that’s blocking the drain and giving us trouble that way. The other main thing that we want to do is make sure that the location of the drain is actually effective. We say this quite a bit, it’s not that drains don’t work it’s that yours doesn’t. The location of the drain is going to be key to its effectiveness without a doubt.
How Often Should I Have My Drains Inspected?
If you want to be extra safe we would say that twice a year is a good number. We want to make sure that your drains are not all clogged up coming into the heavy rain season. At the same time, we want to see how they ended up when the heavy rainfall is behind us. Something as simple as this can make even older drains much more effective. Helping you avoid all sorts of potential issues that could go south quickly if you don’t tend to them.
Inspections Don’t Necessarily Lead To Repairs
Not all of the drains that we inspect ultimately need some type of help. Many people put off getting these inspections because they think that companies like ourselves are going to push them to get a major renovation. We want to make sure that your drains are always working properly. That's the only goal behind these inspections. We’re going to be honest with you about the findings that we make. That way you’ll be able to make an informed decision on what you want to do.
