Your tub, shower, or sink should never have water lingering once you've shut off the water supply. Slow draining, or not draining, can be a sign that you need your drains cleaned. When water takes too long to drain, undesired residue can build up on your surfaces. This residue can be full of bacteria and other health concerns.
You never want to experience a bad smell in your home. One of the most common spots for this, though, is the kitchen sink. Terrible smells coming from your kitchen drain are often an indication that there is a blockage that is preventing food waste from washing through your system. Sewer line issues can also cause unpleasant smells in your home, so it is important to have any unpleasant smells inspected as quickly as possible.
If you’ve noticed the sound of water gurgling, this is often caused by a blockage in the drain. It can be noticed with major appliance use such as your washer since more water flows through your pipes at one time.
What Is Causing My Drain Problems?
Drain cleaning services are ideal for addressing the number of issues that can cause drainage problems in your home. These causes include:
Even with a garbage disposal, you must be careful about what enters your drain. Garbage disposals are not designed to handle all food waste. Certain foods can become hard masses while in your pipe system. This is often the source of unpleasant smells entering your home.
Soap residue and hair.
Our showers and bathtubs are common sources of drain problems. Body washes, shampoos, and conditioners can all cause a build-up in your system. We also shed hair while in the shower, which is an additional source of common drain blockage. Having a drain screen can help, but it is no guarantee of complete protection from drain problems.
Your toilet and the attached drain are designed to handle waste and toilet paper. Non-flushable items often create the need to have professional plumbing services done at your home. Most common non-flushable items include feminine care products and baby wipes.
