What Are the Signs of a Clogged Drain?

Don’t let a clogged drain sneak up on you. It’s important to know the signs of a clogged drain, including the following:

  • Slow-draining water forms pools
  • Water is gurgling from drains
  • Water in toilet bubbles when running fixtures
  • Smell of rotting food
  • Sewage odors from drains

Why Is It Important to Fix Clogged Drains?

Damaged pipes with years of buildup can create significant issues for your plumbing system. It’s essential to get regular plumbing maintenance. If your pipes are not maintained, you face costly plumbing repairs and replacements. Drains have the vital job of carrying away wastewater from your home. When they aren’t working correctly, the plumbing system takes a hit. Our service professional team is here to help ensure your drains are properly maintained.

How to Clear Minor Clogs

Drains easily get clogged over time, but you don’t need to contact our professionals for every clogged drain. You can attempt to clear minor clogs by:

  • Fill the sink until it is partially filled with water. Cover the overflow hole.
  • Attempt to plunge the drain by creating a suction. Push the plunger up and down multiple times.
  • If the clog will not clear, reposition the plunger and try again.
  • If this process does not unclog your drains, contact our professional plumbing service. If you find a water leak, it’s important to turn off the main water shutoff valve.

Tips to Prevent Clogged Drains

Pipes naturally clog with debris, grease, oil, hair, toothpaste, and other elements. Pipe buildups can lead to corrosion and additional damage. You can prevent nasty clogs with our preventative plumbing maintenance services. We routinely inspect and clean your pipes to help blast away debris. Our enzymatic drain cleaner helps remove years of buildup.

We Answer Your Frequently Asked Questions 

To help you know when to contact us, we've gathered some common questions from our customers about drains and pipes. If you spot any issues with your plumbing, getting them looked at is essential. 

Here are some of the following most asked questions we receive:  

Why Do My Drains Keep Clogging?  

If your drains keep getting clogged even after you attempt to fix them, there might be a more serious issue. Blocked sewer lines can cause water to flow back into your system until they are cleaned or fixed. We're here to assist in clearing your sewer lines, ensuring your daily life remains hassle-free. 

When Should I Call a Professional for Help?  

Occasionally, you notice water in your home not flowing down the drain correctly, which indicates a problem. Here are some warning signs to watch for, indicating it's time to contact us: 

  • Water takes its time draining, leaving little puddles. 
  • When you use the bathroom sink, the toilet starts bubbling. 
  • Water gathers around your shower, bathtub, or sink drains. 
  • Odd sounds come from the drain when the washing machine or dishwasher runs. 
  • Unpleasant smells like sewage or spoiled food emerge from any drain. 

How Do We Clean Clogged Drains? 

Blocked drains can be a common issue, but they can often be resolved with simple steps. A drain snake can come in handy if you're dealing with a stubborn clog, especially in your shower drain caused by hair, soap residue, or other bathroom items. However, if the problem persists, you can try these methods or reach out to us for expert help: 

  • Fill your sink with water, but be careful not to let it overflow. 
  • If you have a two-section kitchen sink, cover one section with a damp cloth to create pressure. 
  • If your bathroom sink is clogged, cover the overflow opening. 
  • Use a plunger on the open drain. 
  • Push the plunger up and down a few times, lift it off, and repeat the process several more times. 

Usually, these steps can clear the clog and get your drain working correctly again. But if you still need assistance, don't hesitate to contact us. Our experts are always ready to use their skills to ensure your drain functions as it should. 

Is Drain Cleaner Safe to Use for Pipes? 

Blocked drains are a common occurrence and are usually easy to clear. However, sometimes, the blockage can be tough to tackle. Shower drains can become clogged due to hair, soap scum, or debris buildup. In such cases, a drain snake can be pretty handy. Most times the harsh acid actually hardens the clog and makes it worse.  While some may think about using drain cleaners, we recommend using them sparingly, as they can potentially damage your pipes over time because they are acid chemicals.  When our technician comes to your home, ask about BioChoice ES. It’s a product we recommend to prevent clogs from the start. 

What Causes Clogged Drains?  

Drain blockages develop gradually due to various factors like grease, hair, food scraps, soap residue, debris, and more accumulating in your plumbing system. Occasionally, factors beyond your influence can lead to a sewer system backup, with tree roots invading pipes being a significant cause. These roots can break through pipe defenses and grow inside them, causing issues. 

Do Coffee Grounds Cause Clogged Drains?  

Coffee grounds often clump together when mixed with water instead of breaking into smaller particles that can flow easily through drains. This clumping can lead to clogs in your drains over time. It's a good practice to dispose of coffee grounds in your trash or use them in compost instead of rinsing them down the sink. 

How Can I Prevent Plumbing Issues?  

To prevent your drains from getting clogged, it's essential to keep a close eye on them and address any problems as soon as you notice them. This might involve regularly inspecting your pipes and staying vigilant for signs that your system might malfunction. If you have some problem areas in your system it will be recommended that a Hydro Scrub process be done to push high-powered water in the pipes to send buildup through the main line. From there, a camera inspection can see the condition of the pipes and determine if any repair needs to be done.
