Clogged drains are a serious nuisance. From the bathroom to the kitchen, a clogged drain can slow you down, leave unwanted residue behind, and cause all sorts of other problems.
Your drains are the arteries of your home, when your drains are clean, water and waste flow freely. When there’s a clog or buildup in the drains, you may experience slow moving water, still water or regurgitating water in your tub or sinks. Lack of water pressure is another sign of a clogged drain. If you notice a strange smell in your drains, or a gurgling sound coming from the pipes, you may also need drain cleaning.
Signs of a Clogged Drain:
Water begins to back up out of a sink drain.
Pools of water form around shower drains.
Water drains very slowly after forming pools.
Toilet water bubbles when you run the sink.
Drains make gurgling sounds (most common after running washing machine/dishwasher)
Pools of water form on the floor close to the bathtub or a sink.
There is a smell of rotting food coming from the kitchen sink area.
