It always happens at the worst possible time. Clogged drains always seem to occur when you have company, when you’re trying to cook for a crowd, or when your life is already way too busy. If you’re a Port Arthur business, a clogged drain is even worse. Stopped up plumbing can make a bad impression on customers and even bring your business to a halt.

Buildup happens silently where you can’t see it. One of the reasons clogged drains are such a pain are that they can occur suddenly. Look for the following signs of impending blockage.

  • Water that drains slowly
  • Overflowing sinks
  • Toilets that gurgle when you run water in other places
  • Bad smells from kitchen sink drains

Know the Warning Signs of a Clogged Drain

Why Drains Clog

Buildup happens all the time. Almost every time you run a faucet, something besides water goes down the sink. When you wash your hands you rinse dirt, skin cells and soap down the drain. Women wash cosmetics and lotions down their bathroom sinks. People and pets shed hair every time they take a bath or shower. That hair gets trapped in tub and shower drains.

The kitchen sink in your Port Arthur home might need regular clogged drain service. When you prepare food and wash your hands, food particles get caught in the P-trap. When you wash dishes more food, grease and soap gets caught in the drain.
