What are some signs that you need drain cleaning?

You can easily tell if your drains are in need of a cleaning by looking for the signs. If you know what red flags to look for, you can prevent an expensive clog and backup that could have been avoided with the proper attention and servicing.

If you are not sure whether or not a drain cleaning is necessary, you do not have to crawl under your home or invest in expensive equipment to tell. Here are four signs that your drains are experiencing problems that may be cleared with a simple professional cleaning:

  • Drains are slow: If your drains are slowly draining water, you are on the verge of experiencing a clog. The more buildup and debris that collects in the drain, the slower it will drain. The only way to fix the problem is to clean the drains to clear the obstruction and the grease that has solidified.
  • Unpleasant smells coming from the drain: Do you smell something rotting coming from your drain? This means that old food, particles, or even a pest could be trapped in the drain leading to a foul odour. You can run hot water down the drain, but if this does not solve the problem, you will need a drain cleaning.
  • Toilets are overflowing: Blockages in your drains can affect your toilets. If you cannot flush even a single piece of toilet paper and plunging is not working, you are in need of a cleaning.
  • Water coming up from the drains: Drains are designed to direct water to your pipes and not to your sink basins. If water is coming up through your drains, there is a chance that objects are obstructing the pipes and need to be cleared.

What are the benefits of this service?

If you have noticed any of these red flags, it is time to call us immediately. By investing in a regular cleaning or scheduling a timely appointment when you spot problems, you can:

  • Protect your drains and your sewer line from serious damage.
  • Reduce the occurrences of frequent blockages.
  • Save money by avoiding a catastrophe.
  • Prevent water damage to your home and belongings.

What are easy ways to avoid clogs?

If you are in need of a drain cleaning, we can help, but we also want to help you extend the life of your plumbing system with the best practices. Clogs may not always be avoidable, but there are ways to reduce occurrences of clogs and blockages.

Here are 3 tips that can help you keep your drains obstruction free:

  • Do not pour greases and oils down your drain as they will solidify and stick to your pipes.
  • Never flush heavy paper products down your toilet as it will clog the sewer system.
  • Pour boiling water down your sink once a week to melt anything sticking to pipes.
