Regular drain maintenance helps to prevent deposit build ups in your drains allowing water to freely flow through pipes reducing odours. Blocked drains can cause odours, lead to flooding and other negative health effects of employees and patrons in restaurants, food service, kitchens, washrooms, etc.
Drains clog over time, they run slower as greases, soaps, fats and detergents build up on their inner walls of the pipes and eventually cause blockage. Blocked drains be a symptom of an underlying structural problem, or the cause of an unpleasant issue like water resurgence, but clogged drains can pose an abundance of negative health effects to home and business owners, the most prevalent being bad odours that may cause asthma irritation and a breeding ground for drain flies. Blocked drains can also cause significant damage to your facility or home. Stagnant water can leak into the corners and foundations of your building and weaken the structural integrity leading to chances of flooding that may require significant financial investment to repair. The moisture may also cause water stains, discoloration, and warping.
With proper maintenance, drains will remain in good working condition and help prevent the added cost and health risks of becoming clogged. When practiced as a regular routine bio-enzymatic drain openers and maintainers biodegrade organic waste in grease traps and drain lines. They contain a foul odour eliminator to eliminate any fumes or gases caused by the blockage. Both kitchen and bathroom drains need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
Luckily Swish offers a variety of solutions to keep your drains clean!
Exposure to odours and repeated use of air fresheners can increase indoor air pollution and pose a health risk, especially with long- term exposure. Like the bio-enzymatic cleaner, you can use a bio-active air freshener which also uses “good” bacteria to remove odours in the air, making it safe to use around animals and anyone with sensitivities. Swish ES120 is an Ecologo certified product which controls a variety of malodours, leaving a fresh, clean fragrance.
