Signs of a Clogged Drain
Your pipes and drains are designed to be able to contain running water that’s leaving your house and starting its journey to the water treatment plant. But standing water is something different. When a clog causes water to sit in your sinks and pipes, it can cause strain on seals and caulking. Soon you can be dealing with damaged plumbing and leaks instead of just a clog.
Since there is more at stake than just having to deal with a sink full of water, it’s best to take care of clogged drains quickly. You can catch clogs sooner if you know the signs. Call as soon as you can for drain clearing if you notice any of these signs:
- Slow draining pipes
- Bad smells
- Pests (drain flies, cockroaches, fruit flies) hanging out near drains
- Gurgling sounds

But with Charlotte drain services from Morris-Jenkins, the problem will get taken care of quickly, and you won’t have to lift a finger. You’ll be able to put the worry behind you and enjoy the rest of your day!
Professional vs. DIY Clog Removal
When you do notice a problem, you’ll need to decide whether to take care of it yourself or to call a professional out. Some issues can be fixed at home, but in a lot of situations, it’s better to let a plumber handle it. The only safe DIY method we recommend is a sink or toilet plunger. If you can get the clog out in a few minutes with a plunger you’ll be good to go. But for trickier clogs, never try to use drain clearing liquids. The chemicals are bad for your pipes and can cause them to corrode.
Our Clog Removal Services
We want you to have healthy pipes that last for years without major problems. We use methods for unclogging drains that keep your pipes in mind while being tough on clogs. We’ll spend some time at the beginning of each appointment to decide with you what the best method is gonna be. Here are the two options you’ll have for clogs:
- Drain Cabling: If the term “drain cabling” isn’t familiar, you might have heard of a snake or an auger. It’s a method that’s been used for a long time to get rid of normal clogs that are keeping your pipes from draining. The handheld and motorized snakes that we use can cut through hair clogs, food clogs, small roots, and more. Priority Advantage® Members can get this $77 service for free!
- Hydro Jetting: Bad odors in your house might be coming from sludge that sticks to the side of your pipes. Grease and oil can also line your pipes and can be hard to get rid of with an auger. The best way to clear this type of clog is to have it removed with a hydro jetter. High-pressure water blasts away anything that’s sticking to your pipes, and it can even get rid of thick tree roots and clogs that are hidden away deep in the plumbing.
