Signs That You Need Drain Cleaning

Your drains serve an important part in your home’s plumbing system. If the drains are in poor condition, the rest of the home will start to experience problems. The best way to keep your drains in good shape is to schedule drain cleaning services. Read on for some of the signs that you need to have your drains professionally cleaned.

Slow Drainage

Drain clogs form over time, as waste sticks to the walls of the drain pipe. As the waste builds towards the center, the flow of water through the pipes is gradually restricted until it is cut off completely. If you notice your drains draining more slowly than they normally would, it’s a good idea to call for drain cleaning services.

Bad Smells

If your drains have horrible smells coming out of them, you probably need to schedule drain cleaning. Oftentimes, bad drain smells are due to waste buildup in the pipes. This is especially common with kitchen drains, since they have to deal with food waste. Do note, however, that if there are bad smells coming out of all of the drains in your home, it indicates a problem further down in your sewer system.


Even if you don’t notice any specific issues with your drains, it’s still a really good idea to call for drain cleaning services at least once a year. Preventive drain cleaning will not only remove already-formed clogs, but will prevent clogs from forming in the future. This is one of the best ways to make sure that your drains stay in good condition.
