5 Signs You Need Your Drains Cleared

Picture this … your midway through the week and you notice your shower is beginning to slowly drain water. As you walk into the kitchen, you recognize a strange, odd odor coming from your sink. If you’re finding yourself in a similar situation where you’re noticing unusual behavior in your bathroom or kitchen, then there is most likely a larger issue at play. Check out these 5 signs that are key indicators your home could benefit from a drain clearing. 

Slow Drainage

Are you showering while standing in a puddle of water? If it is taking longer to complete simple tasks around the house because you’re waiting for water to slowly drain, you most likely have gunk stuck in your drains. 

Recurring Clogs

Clogs can occur from time to time but frequent clogs are a different story. If you can’t go a few days without dealing with another clog, then you need a better solution for your plumbing issue.

Water Backup

Water bubbling backup in your sink, shower, or toilet is a clear indicator that there is excess air in your drains. A drain clearing can fix this issue by removing the additional air in your pipes and ultimately stop backup water from bubbling backup your system.

Odd Odors

You can’t miss it! If a foul odor fills one room and begins to fill the rest of your home, call your plumber quick!

Strange Noises

Keep an ear out for sounds of gurgling water. If you hear this sound while flushing the toilet or turning on the faucet, the water running through your pipes is most likely attempting to change course in order to move around clogs.
