Some of the most frequently used appliances in a household include your kitchen sink, bathroom sink, and shower. If your drains are not working properly, you are at risk for pipe damage, slow drainage, funky smells, and bacteria build-up. DIYers may turn to a drain snake or drano, however that does not always do the trick! You can end up wasting time and money on mediocre home remedies. Sometimes, you need to call in the professionals. But how do you know when it is time? Let’s take a look at the top 3 signs that indicate you need professional drain cleaning.
Have you ever been doing the dishes in the sink or washing your hands in the bathroom and notice a funky smell? That smell is likely coming from your drain. Improper disposal of oils, fats, meats, etc., can get stuck in your drain and begin to cause a build-up of bacteria. This build-up can result in an unpleasant smell that seems impossible to get rid of. Home remedies such as soap and water, chemicals, and lemon peels rarely get the job done.
Our drains should not be making any strange sounds. If you hear a strange gurgling sound coming from your drain, a clog is most likely the culprit. When your drain is clogged, air bubbles that typically get released through the pipes, get stuck. This prevents the water from flowing properly, thus producing the gurgling noise.
Slow drainage or standing water in your kitchen sink, bathroom sink, or shower is an obvious sign that your drains need cleaning. A clog or a build-up of sediment is most likely the root of the problem.
