Drain Cleaning

Our drains handle a lot every day — they remove waste and dirty water that can contain debris like hair, soaps and food scraps from our homes. With so much going into our drains, the occasional clog is no surprise. By identifying a clog and calling a professional to handle it sooner rather than later, you can keep your home running smoothly and prevent a more costly repair.

3 Signs You Have a Clogged Drain

Unlike other plumbing problems, a clogged drain may not be as obvious to detect until it worsens. Here are some of the warning signs of a clogged drain.

Leaky Sink Drain Pipe

Slow Draining

Does your sink fill up when you wash your hands? Do you have an inch of water around your feet each time you take a shower? A slow sink drain can indicate a clog. If multiple sinks begin draining slowly, the clog may be further along your sewer line.


Sewage Smells

A foul smell coming from your drain can indicate organic material is stuck and has begun to decompose. If you run some water through the drain and still notice a sour smell, a clog is probably present.


Gurgling Noise

Gurgling noises are not normal and can be the result of an airflow problem in the drain. These sounds are one of the more obvious symptoms of a clog, requiring immediate attention from a professional drain pipe cleaning service.

Risks of Unclogging a Drain Yourself

While the internet is full of DIY hacks promising to unclog your drain, there are some risks involved with attempting to remove a clog yourself:

  • Drain damage: Most homeowners do not have access to professional plumbing equipment or cleaning materials. The wrong tools can cause more damage to drains and pipes rather than fixing the problem.

  • Potential health issues: Many chemical drain cleaners have hazardous fumes that can impact your health, especially if your home lacks the proper ventilation.

  • Bigger underlying problems: A clogged drain can be a symptom of a much larger issue. If that's the case, removing the clog could only offer a temporary solution.
