When it comes to your home’s plumbing system, little problems can quickly turn into big problems if they are not handled properly. This is especially true with clogged drains. Keep an eye out for these warning signs around your home – they could signify you are in need of a professional drain cleaning service.
Your sink is emitting unpleasant odors.
Smelly sinks could simply be a result of some old food caught up in your garbage disposal. However, if the odor is present in all of your home’s sinks, or persists even after cleaning your garbage disposal, this is indicative of blocked drains that require professional assistance.
Your pipes are slow to drain, or clogging frequently.
Have you noticed that your sinks or bathtubs are taking longer and longer to drain? Or maybe you have a reoccurring clog that you just can’t seem to get rid of? This is likely a result of small clogs beginning to form on the inside of your pipes. The longer you wait to address the problem, the more waste will stick to the inside of your pipes, and the bigger the clog will become.
You are experiencing backflow in your drains.
“Backflow” is a plumbing term used to describe the unwanted reverse flow of water. In other words, it’s when sewage water washes up in one of your drains. You don’t need us to tell you why this is a sanitary problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
