You probably don’t spend an awful lot of time thinking about your drains, but that doesn’t mean that you can ignore them completely without some consequences. There are a number of problems that can crop up with your drain system, some of which can be prevented by something as simple as routine drain cleaning. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need drain cleaning services.
Clogs are not problems that just show up out of nowhere. In fact, a drain clog forms pretty slowly. Waste gets stuck to the inner walls of the drain pipe, which causes more waste to stick to the same spot, and so on. As the buildup gets closer to the center of the pipe, the flow of water through the pipe is restricted. Eventually, the clog completely blocks off the flow of water, which is when most homeowners notice that they have a problem. If you notice your drain beginning to drain more slowly than it normally does, though, you can prevent a clog from fully forming by scheduling drain cleaning services.
If you have bad smells coming out of your drain, you may have some waste stuck down in the drain pipe. This could later lead to a clog, but even if it doesn’t, it is a pretty unpleasant thing to have to deal with. Drain cleaning should solve the problem, but be careful. If you have bad smells coming out of multiple different drains, it could be a problem with the sewer system. You will need to have a professional plumber examine your system to identify the source of the problem in that case.
