What Are Your Drains Trying To Tell You?

Ask any reputable plumbing company, and they'll tell you that drain issues are a common complaint among homeowners. Obviously, the better care you take of your drains and plumbing, the less likely you will face slow or clogged drains. However, it seems inevitable that drains will give every household some trouble, from time to time.

It's become too familiar for homeowners to take matters into their own hands and try to conduct some DIY drain cleaning, which can have serious ramifications. The harsh chemicals sold in stores as solutions for clogged drains might offer a quick fix, but it's usually only temporary. It would help if you had a professional assessment to get to the crux of the matter and avoid causing damage to your pipes with those strong chemicals.

Top Warning Signs That You Need Drain Cleaning

When you work with a professional plumbing company, you should get some advice about regular drain cleaning. Savvy homeowners who schedule this service before they need it don't usually end up with clogs. If they do, it alerts the plumber that something more severe than mild build-up is probably the culprit.

  • Tree Root Intrusion - If you have the symptoms of a clogged drain without regular drain cleaning measures working, it could mean you have tree roots that have grown through the pipes. Since the root system of plants and trees are naturally drawn to water, this can, unfortunately, lead to cracking and splitting of the pipes.
  • Overflowing Toilets - It's something that happens occasionally, and something no one ever wants to clean up, but toilets do overflow. For recurring problems, it needs to be checked out by a professional to determine if there's a sewer line issue.
  • Foul Odors - If the plumbing in your home is the cause of a foul smell, it means you have a sewer line problem. Usually, it's a sizable clog, and you need professional intervention and not to keep pouring liquid drain cleaner into your pipes.
