Every homeowner will experience a clogged drain at least once in their lifetime, however, not everyone is sure how to treat them efficiently. Don’t wait for your drains to become severely clogged before contacting a plumber! Here are some signs you need your drains cleaned to keep a small problem from getting worse.
DO I NEED DRAIN CLEANING?
Most signs of a clogged drain go right over homeowners’ heads, so here are some signs to look out for.
Water not filtering through drains, and sitting in bathtubs or sinks.
Slow bathroom sink or kitchen sink drains could be the early signs of a clogged pipe.
Toilets overflowing when flushed.
A revolting scent coming from the kitchen sink could be due to a backup of sitting food in the drain.
Using chemical drain cleaners repeatedly. This could be damaging to your drains and cause them to weaken.
ARE CHEMICAL DRAIN CLEANERS SAFE?
Sure chemical drain cleaners are fast and affordable, but they may not be as helpful as advertised. Not only are these harsh chemicals bad for you to inhale, but they can harm your plumbing system.
The problem with chemical drain cleaners is that they only eliminate part of the blockage, pushing the remainder further down into your pipes–which builds up and causes a clog again. As a result, you’ll have to use the drain cleaner continually, causing your pipes to erode over time.
