How Do I Know if My Drain Is Clogged?

Many substances and materials can build up and lead to clogging, including hair, dirt, soap, food, and minerals. Even toilet paper risks sticking to your pipes and causing buildup. While you may be able to remove the blockage yourself, a service professional may be required to save you time and money. Your drain may be clogged if:

  • Water backs up instead of going down the drain.
  • Water drains slowly or seems to resist draining.
  • Water pools in your sink, bathtub, or on your floor.
  • You detect the smell of sewage or decaying food.
  • You hear odd gurgling or bubbling after running water or using the washing machine.

How to Protect Your Clogged Drain

Fortunately, there are a few ways to keep your drain pipes free and clean to allow water to pass. Try the following to preserve your drain quality:

  • Put your leftover grease in a disposable container instead of pouring it down the drain. Grease can easily stick to your piping and form a clog.
  • Throw away or compost your food scraps. Large amounts of food waste cannot be adequately processed in a garbage disposal, and it can eventually begin to rot in your pipes.
  • Collect your hair after showering or washing in the bathtub or sink. Even small strings of hair can collect over time and block water from draining correctly.

Can I Unclog a Drain Myself?

If your drain is blocked, you may be able to unclog it using a few helpful tricks. If you try the following steps, but the blockage remains, we can provide you with a job estimate:

  • Take a plunger, place it firmly over the drain like a cover, and repeatedly press and release until the drain is unblocked.
  • Flood your drain with extremely hot water. Water at boiling temperatures may be able to break up the blockage and relieve your pipes.

Trust the Professionals for Clogging Emergencies

Some drain problems should only be handled by experts. Though you may be tempted to handle the issue yourself, the benefits of hiring a service professional may mitigate the risks of attempting unclogging or repairs on your own. We suggest pausing to ask yourself if you feel comfortable inspecting your drain and fixing it yourself. If your answer is negative, we encourage you to reach out and call a plumber, especially if you're experiencing an emergency. We can arrive quickly before your clog becomes more significant and provide you with a drain repair.

Preventative Maintenance to Avoid Clogged Drains

Prevention is the best way to maintain the quality and function of your drains. Thoroughly removing heavy buildup takes time and effort to achieve. If the buildup of waste or hard water is allowed to stay, pipes may begin to crack or break because of the pressure. Our service professionals provide drain cleaning services and preventative maintenance plans to stop buildup from occurring in the first place. Our maintenance plans include cleaning entire plumbing systems, and ensuring water and materials can pass freely throughout the year. We can discuss our maintenance plans with you and help you decide which suits your plumbing.
