Signs You Have Clogged Drain
- Pools of water when you try to shower
- A sink full of dirty water while doing the dishes
- Rising water levels in your toilet after flushing
- Foul odor
- And more.
Many drain clogs are caused by rotting or organic material, making them not just plumbing problems, but potential health issues as well. Foul-smelling drains that are also clogged can harbor dangerous bacteria. Odors can also be caused by leaking and backed up water. If you notice an odd smell coming from one or more of your drains, contact us immediately.
Is It Time for Professional Drain Cleaning?
While many property owners are hesitant to call for professional help if they think they can unclog their drains on their own, there are several signs that indicate it’s better to leave the job to your plumber. If you experience any of the following six signs, consider having a professional examine your system:
- Recurring Clogs.
- Multiple Clogged Drains.
- Slow Drains.
- Low Water Pressure.
- Sewer Odors.
- Standing Water.
- Drain Inspection
Whether you’re having noticeable issues with your drains or not, we recommend that you get your drains checked at least every two or three years to head off problems and ensure the integrity of your plumbing. Routine maintenance is, after all, much less costly than an extensive repair for a problem that has gotten out of hand.
Our technicians have access to the right tools and equipment to perform long-term drain cleaning solutions. While many consumer chemical products claim to clear drains without mechanical assistance, they are often harmful on your pipes and the environment, and are short-term fixes.
Our long-term solutions include inserting a drain cable, or snake, into your pipeline. This consists of a specialized machine that drives a cable and cleaning head through the whole of the pipe, rather than just burning a hole through debris with acids or other caustic substances. A professionally-snaked drain is a much safer method of clearing your clogged drains.
