There are several health issues associated with dirty drains. Blockage can cause foul odors and fluid to come back out of your drains. This can lead to contaminated food. Any chemicals or bacteria that can be found in your drains will make their way back out with the gases and fluids - if there is any food around that's where some of it will end up. It can also cause sickness; large amounts of moisture over extended periods of time can cause fungus and mold to grow which is dangerous to our health. It's also likely that you will breathe in some of the airborne chemicals or bacteria whether you notice it before hand or not.
In order to avoid what is known in the plumbing business as a drain emergency you can perform regular checkups and easy maintenance on your own pipes and drains. Having a company come out regularly to check can become a burden on your wallet, especially if you're just paying them to come and perform services you can easily execute yourself. There are many liquid plumber products on the market that will help alleviate blockage in your drains as well as other tools such as the commonly used plumbing snake. It's also smart to invest in a drain trap if you don't have one already to stop large food or debris particles from getting into your piping systems and causing an issue.
