Drain Cleaning Service

There are several signs that will indicate if you need professional drain cleaning:

Slow Draining

One of the most obvious signs of a blocked drain is water draining slowly in sinks, showers, or tubs. You may notice that it takes longer for the water to go down the drain than usual. This can happen due to the buildup of hair, soap scum, food particles, or other debris in the pipe. If you notice this issue in multiple drains within your home, it’s a clear indication that there is a blockage in your main sewer line.

Unpleasant Odours

The buildup of organic matter can cause bacteria to grow and emit foul smells. You may also notice a musty smell in your basement or laundry room, which could be caused by stagnant water trapped in your drain system. If you can’t seem to get rid of the odours with household cleaners, it’s likely that the blockage is further down in your pipes and requires professional attention.

Gurgling Sounds

If you hear strange gurgling noises coming from your pipes, it could be a sign of a blocked drain. As water struggles to pass through the blockage, air bubbles may form and cause gurgling sounds. This is most commonly heard in toilets, but can also happen in sinks and drains. If you notice this happening frequently, it’s time to call a plumber.

Backed Up Water

A more serious sign of a blocked drain is when water starts backing up out of your sink, toilet, or shower. This means that the blockage has caused a complete obstruction in your pipes and water cannot pass through at all. If this happens, it’s important to act fast before the situation worsens.

Multiple Clogged Drains

If you have multiple clogs happening simultaneously in your home, it’s almost certain that you have a blocked main sewer line. This is because all of the drains in your house are connected to this main line and any blockage will affect all of them. If you’re experiencing clogs in different areas of your home, it’s time to call a professional for drain service.

Increased Water Bills

A blocked drain can also result in increased water bills. If you notice your bill has been steadily increasing and there are no other explanations for it, such as a leaky faucet or toilet, then it’s likely due to a blocked drain. As water struggles to pass through the blockage, it can cause higher water pressure, which leads to more water being used.

Prevention Tips

To avoid dealing with a blocked drain, there are some preventative measures you can take. Regularly cleaning out your drains using natural methods such as baking soda and vinegar can help prevent buildup. Avoid putting grease, oil, or food scraps down the kitchen sink and use a hair catcher in the shower to catch any hair before it goes down the drain. Remember that toiletries should also be disposed of correctly and that items like sanitary products, wet wipes, and tooth floss can create harmful blockages in your drainage system

Each of these symptoms ought to cause a quick call for aid. Sluggish or badly clogged drains will occasionally indicate worse troubles that only a trained plumber can determine. Several slow drains about your residence can serve as a common indicator of issues with the sewer line. Problems in the main sewage pipe will become apparent around the home since all of the house’s pipes empty there. Professional repairs typically become necessary with obstructed sewer lines. 

The first attempt of any homeowner naturally is to resolve the problem themselves with store-bought clog removers or using baking soda and vinegar as drain cleaner.  Store-bought drain cleaners should generally be avoided, because they are abrasive chemicals that tend to harm the pipes of your plumbing, and eventually might even create a need for invasive repairs. And actually, they do little to fix clogs.
 
If the clog won’t seem to flush away after you have tried several at-home remedies, you should contact an expert for assistance. Continuous use of at-home techniques can create permanent damage, or leave you with a larger issue than before. On the other hand, persistent clogs left unfixed might turn into bigger problems like sewage back-flow. 
 
To effectively tackle clogged drains and sewage backing up, correct plumbing equipment is needed. Drain cleaning and drain repairs are best left for professional plumbers to take care of.
 

Our qualified and fully licensed plumbers will assess the situation and use the appropriate equipment, be it a cable auger to snake your drain or a hydro jet for more obstinate clogs. A drain inspection with video camera will reveal anything that is not in order with your pipes, and will indicate the precise location of any blockages, leaks, cracks or corroded pipes. In case we find that drain repair or drain replacement is necessary, we will offer you the camera inspection free of charge.
