Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Services

Have you seen any of the following signs you need a drain cleaning service company?

  • Do you hear gurgling in your drain piping?
  • Do you have a rotten food smell coming from your kitchen sink drain?
  • Is the water backing up out of your kitchen or bathroom sink drain?
  • Is your shower draining slowly or has water pooling around its drain?
  • Does running water in the bathroom sink cause the toilet water to bubble?
  • When was the last time you did any drainage maintenance cleaning?

Causes of Clogged Drains

Over time various things can cause a clogged drain.

  • Clogged Kitchen Sink Drain

    Over time, the walls of your kitchen sink drainage piping collects deposits of the detergents, soap, grease, fat and food scraps that end up going down the drain no matter how careful you are as a good home owner not to let these go down your kitchen sink drain.

  • Clogged Bathroom Sink Drain

    Like kitchen sinks, no matter how careful you are to not let the wrong things go down the drain, the walls of you bathroom sink piping collect deposits of soap, hair, toothpaste and other things that fall into the sink during your personal care routine each day.

  • Clogged Toilet

    Put your hand up, have you been guilty of using too much toilet paper and clogging up the toilet? Maybe you child or pet dropped something in the toilet bowl that got flushed. Things can get trapped within the intricate drainage system of your toilet causing a backup when the toilet is flushing. Plunging just might not solve the problem.

  • Slow Draining Tub and Shower Drains

    Like your sinks, the walls of your tub and shower drain piping collect deposits of soap and hair as you send your bath and shower water down the drain.

  • Floor Drains

    Patios, driveways, laundry rooms, basements and garages should all have floor drains. These are there to drain the water way during a rain or flood. Over time though, your floor drain piping can become clogged with roots, debris from construction or become broken. Whether your floor drain lines are filled with debris or are broken, the water that is supposed to be drained away to the City connection backs up and back out the drain hole.

  • Perimeter Drain System Flooding

    Depending on how old your home is, your gutter downspouts could be sending the leaves and needles washed into the gutters from cleaning, melting snow or rain down the downspouts and right into your perimeter drainage system causing a blockage. Roots can also be a cause of perimeter drainage blockages.
