Plumbing problems can cause quite a stir, especially when they impact your everyday activities. This means it is very important to recognize any time there is an issue so you can take action quickly and find the right fix. One of the most common plumbing problems you may encounter is a clogged drain. In order to best find the right fix for the clogged drain, you should know the signs indicating it’s time to clean it.
Water Backing Up
When you go to use your sink or shower, it should allow you to drain the water once you’re done, no problems involved. When your drain is clogged, it can make it so the water either drains slowly or doesn’t drain at all, causing the water to backup into the sink or tub. This can cause potential flooding or damage to the home.
Bad Smells or Weird Sounds
If your drain becomes clogged, it can also cause a backup of sewer gas. When the water finally bypasses the drain, it can release air, causing a weird gurgling sound. You may also bad smells coming from the affected drain(s). This can be the sewer gas which is not just dangerous to your pipes, but also to the health of anyone in the home.
Clogs Occurring Regularly
For some homeowners, they may try to clear clogs with a plunger or by using some of the chemical agents they find at a store. This can work sometimes, but other times, the problem just returns. If clogs occur regularly, there may be a deeper problem and it requires the help of a professional.
