How to Know When Your Drains Need to Be Cleaned
Drain cleaning services are among the most overlooked forms of plumbing system maintenance. It is common for homeowners to neglect their drains until they are dealing with a sink full of standing water. While our team can help you get your drains flowing again when they are totally blocked, it is best to address clogs before they reach this point. When drains become completely clogged, they can damage floors, woodwork, and pipes. Some of the sure-fire signs that you have a clogged drain include:
- Sewage flowing back up through your drains
- Water pooling around sinks, bathtubs, showers, and laundry appliances
- Foul odors emanating from your drains
- Wet and soft areas of your lawn, especially near your sewage line
- Your toilets make a bubbling noise
- Sinks that gurgle and drain slower than usual
- Toilets that are backing up
We Can Clean Any Drain in Your Home
Our drain cleaning service team can help you with any drain in your home. Your plumbing system relies on a series of drains and pipes. When any single one becomes blocked, it can disrupt your entire system. The kitchen sink’s drain often gets clogged by grease, oil, and bits of food. Your bathroom drains may struggle to deal with all the toothpaste, soap, and other filth flowing through them. Even the floor drains in your basement or garage can be clogged by the dirt and grime picked up by water as it flows over the floor. Luckily, our drain cleaning team works with all drains. We treat each drain differently, using the most effective method for cleaning that particular type of drain.
Do I Need Professional Drain Cleaning Services?
When you have clogged plumbing, drain cleaning services can really save the day. However, there are a few ways to break up simple clogs on your own. The first method involves pouring boiling water down the drain. Make sure it is as empty as possible first, then let the hot water loosen up hardened oils and grease in your drain. The second method involves plumbing tools like a plunger and a snake. Use the plunger’s suction to pull the clog near the surface. Then, use the snake to extract the clog. If neither of these methods works, then you know it is time to call the pros.
