8 Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning

Drains prevent water accumulation in your home, but they can become clogged over time. While cleaning clogged drains using drain cleaner may seem like an excellent way to unclog them, doing so can do more harm than good. If you’ve noticed issues with your drains, here are eight telltale signs that you need professional drain cleaning.

1. Slow Draining

If you notice that water takes longer than usual to drain, you likely have a buildup in your drain. Substances such as soap, hair, and food particles can accumulate in the pipes over time and create a blockage. Before slow drains become a costly problem, schedule a professional drain cleaning.

2. Standing Water

While a slow drain indicates a drainage problem, standing water in your sink, shower, or washing machine indicates that the problem has worsened. If any of these areas become filled with water that doesn’t drain, contact a professional plumber to clean your clogged drain.

3. Multiple Clogged Drains

One slow drain may not be a huge cause for concern. However, multiple clogged drains around your home may indicate a serious issue in your pipes, such as a main sewer line clog. If you have several drains that take ages to clear water, contact a plumber immediately before the problem worsens and causes costly damage.

4. Foul Odors

Dayton, OH can get relatively hot during the summer, with temperatures reaching highs of 87 degrees. During the hotter months, organic material is more prone to decay in the pipes, resulting in unpleasant smells traveling throughout the home. If you can smell foul odors, particularly near bathrooms and kitchens, contact a professional drain cleaning service.

5. Recurring Clogs

You may need to unclog your drains from time to time. If you’re frequently unclogging your drains, however, it may indicate that you have a serious blockage. Hire a professional drain cleaning service to help you clean your drainage if you’ve tried several DIY measures without any success.

6. Odd Sounds

Clogged pipes affect the drainage pathways of your plumbing system by forcing water to change course or push through tighter spaces, resulting in strange noises. Consider calling a plumber immediately if you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drains.

7. Fruit Flies

Fruit flies seem to come out of nowhere. However, if you’ve noticed more fruit flies than usual in your home, they’re likely attracted to the food waste accumulating in the drains. Professional drain cleaning can eliminate food waste from your drains and banish fruit flies from your home.

8. Low Water Pressure

While low water pressure can make showers less enjoyable, it may also indicate you need to get your drains cleaned. Often, low water pressure is caused by blockages in the plumbing system. If you notice a drop in the water pressure around your home, call a plumber to inspect your drainage.

Corey and Blake did an excellent job replacing our water heater. They showed up on time, explained what the job entailed, and presented me with an estimate within 20 minutes of being on-site. The customer service reps at the office were also very friendly and answered any questions I had.
