The drain systems in your home serve a valuable role. Without them to serve as the connection point between your plumbing and sewer systems, you would have quite a difficult time disposing of wastewater. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you keep your drains clean and in working order. Keep an eye out for the following signs that your drains are in need of cleaning.
Drain clogs are perhaps the most common drain problem that homeowners across the country deal with. They are caused by waste building up on the walls of the drain pipe over time. As the waste builds towards the center of the pipe, it restricts the flow of water. This leads the drain to start draining more slowly than it normally does. If you notice this happening, it’s a good idea to schedule drain cleaning. If you move quickly enough, you can restore the drain to proper condition before it clogs completely.
This is a particularly common symptom in kitchen drains, which are subjected to more food waste than other drains in the house. As certain kinds of waste build up in the drain pipes, they will start to give off an increasingly bad smell. If you notice bad smells coming out of your drains, it means that you probably have quite a bit of waste in your drain pipes. You should schedule drain cleaning services sooner rather than later. Keep in mind that if you have bad smells coming out of multiple drains in your home, it likely means that you have a problem deeper in the sewer system. Such a problem would need a bit more professional effort than drain cleaning to fix.
