Signs you need a drain clearing service
You likely need a drain clearing if you notice:
- Slow-draining or backed up water. This is the clearest sign your drain needs to be cleared. If you have water backed up in more than one fixture, you probably have a clog in your main water line (not a secondary drain line).
- Gurgling or bubbling drains. Water shouldn’t make a lot of noise when is goes down your drain. If it does, that usually means it’s passing over or through a clog.
- Foul odors coming from your fixtures. If you have a clog, all of the food and waste that goes down your drain will just sit in and stink up your plumbing.
- Frequent clogs. A clog every once in awhile is normal. But if you find yourself calling your plumber to unclog drains regularly, you can probably expect a larger, more expensive drain clearing in the near future.
