Five Signs You Need a Drain Cleared

Do you need a drain cleaned? A blockage or obstruction in your drains can cause serious issues for your home’s plumbing system, including having the issue possibly spread and cause issues with other plumbing devices in your home. This means it’s important to deal with a clogged drain as soon as possible, so you should not hesitate to call for service immediately.

  • Multiple Drains are Slow or Do Not Clear

    If one drain slowly clears, odds are another one might also be experiencing the same issue. If multiple drains are draining slowly, you should shut off your water and call a plumber for assistance immediately. Putting too much pressure on a clog can lead to flooding, pipe damage, and even bursting, resulting in a very expensive repair to more than just your plumbing.

  • Your Shower, Bathtub, or Toilet Drain Slowly

    Your sinks are not the only things that will drain slowly if they are backed up. In fact, showers, bathtubs, and more are some of the most frequently-clogging drains in your home because of the amount of hair, dirt, and grime they wash away. After a while, an untreated and uncleaned drain can result in water pooling up and refusing to drain. If your toilet refuses to drain or you have to plunge it constantly, you should call for assistance.

  • Your Drains Smell Foul

    Blockages can consist of a lot of different materials, some of which can begin to rot, causing a nasty smell to come back up. If you are smelling something foul coming from your drain, you may want to call for service as soon as possible, even if your drains seem to be working normally. This can be the first sign of an imminent blockage, which can result in further issues to your home.

  • Water is Coming Back Up

    When you run the dishwasher, does the sink fill with water? Does running your washing machine cause the bathroom sink to fill up and drain slowly? If so, there is a blockage in one of your main drain lines that needs treatment immediately. Automated machines like washers and dishwashers place immense pressure on blocked lines by needing to drain a lot of water quickly, so you should not continue to run these machines in the event of a blockage.

  • You Hear Odd Gurgling Sounds

    A drain that is clogged may make odd gurgling sounds as the water fully drains out. This is the sound of air escaping into the line, resulting in bubbling, which echoes back up the pipe. If you hear this tell-tale sign of a blockage in your plumbing, you should have a technician come out and inspect your lines as soon as possible to find the source of the block and clear it away to get your home’s plumbing working again.
