You Know You Need Drain Cleaning Services When…

by | May 30, 2016 | Plumbing

You know you need drain cleaning services when you start experiencing these typical issues:

  • Bad Smells

Foul or sour odors coming from the drain are not just unpleasant, they can signal a drain problem. A drain clogging up with hair and grease will accumulate food particles that begin to rot when not washed down. Small rodents can even get trapped in drains, causing bad smells and clogging the drain.

  • Water Back Ups

When water starts coming up into the sink or tub this can signal a blockage in the drain. It could be a buildup of FOG (Fats, Oils, Grease), a small object that has wedged into the pipe, or a damaged drain system.

  • Toilet Overflows

If you have a clogged toilet that a home plunger cannot address, or you are continually needing to plunge, you most likely have a clog deeper into the line. This will probably require a plumber to properly clear the drain.

  • Slow Draining

Often clogs begin as buildup causing them to drain more slowly as the pipe narrows. Unfortunately, we don’t always pay attention in the beginning and a small problem becomes a bigger one. Don’t wait ‘til it’s too late!

  • And the obvious – Clogged Drains –

If a drain has been draining well and suddenly slows or stops draining, it is probably a foreign object somewhere in the line, it may even be tree roots or other damage to the main pipes and should be addressed right away.

The good news is that technology has greatly improved, and with new drain cleaning equipment your professional plumber can locate the problem faster and can solve the problem much more quickly than in the past, which means less expense for you!
