Signs of Clogged Drains

If you think there is a clog in your drains, it’s important to look for these signs first.

Inside your bathroom, you should check your shower drains and see if there is any water pooling around them. Another indicator of clogged drains in the bathroom is that when the sink water is running, the toilet water bubbles. In the kitchen, you might notice that the water backed up in the sink or smell a rotting food odor. General signs of clogged drains that you can see around the house are water draining slowly and gurgling sounds coming from the drains.

Try This Before Calling a Professional

There are ways to try and unclog your drain before making an appointment with an expert.

One way is by partially filling up the sink with water. If you are doing this with a double kitchen sink or a bathroom sink, plug the other drain or the overflow hole. Then, with a cup plunger, plunge the sink several times and repeat the process to see if the sink unclogs itself.

If you are trying to unclog your toilet, use a flange plunger instead for better results. You should avoid using chemical drain cleaners because they can cause damage to your pipes and create corrosion.

If these techniques don’t work, then you need to call a professional for help. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we are happy to assist you with any drain cleaning or clogged drains. Contact us today to schedule an appointment so that we can help fix your drains as soon as possible.
