Signs You Need Emergency Drain Cleaning

Managing a clogged drain starts with identifying how deep the backup goes. If it's a simple clog in a sink, shower, or toilet, most people can handle the problem with a plunger. How do you know when you have an emergency?

Your plumbing system usually signals the need for emergency drain cleaning. Here are a few clues:

  • Foul Odors

  • Back-Flow

  • Gurgling

  • Cloudy Water

If you've exhausted your DIY skills and still suspect a clogged drain, it's time to call in the cavalry!

Often when you can't resolve a clog with a plunger, it indicates a problem further down in your sewer system. Only a plumber can pinpoint the cause of the clog.

What Is That Smell?

If you detect a foul smell coming from your kitchen drain, it's likely the result of waste buildup on the walls of your plumbing pipes. Your kitchen drain deals with more food waste than any of the other drain pipes in your home.

What about the smell of rotten eggs?

When you smell sulfur, and you're confident you've not forgotten to throw away some bad eggs, you can blame your drain. Bacteria growing in a plumbing drain creates hydrogen sulfide, also known as a component of sewer gas.

You may notice the smell only when you turn on the hot water, which could indicate an issue with your water heater. If the odor comes from both faucets and specific rooms or areas, take notes and share those locations with your drain cleaning technician.

Calling a professional drain cleaning service is the best way to deal with stinky drains. They'll bring the right tools and expertise to troubleshoot and perform a complete drain cleaning.

Gurgles and Back-Flow

Do you hear water gurgling when flushing the toilet or when you use the dishwasher or washing machine? A clogged drain may trap water in the faucet, but your drain system could also be struggling for air.

Calling for emergency drain cleaning services when you first notice gurgling sounds may prevent the next problem we'll address in this section—back-flow or backup.

If you've ever experienced a backed-up sink or toilet, you know how unpleasant it is to clean up the mess. The worst backups are those caused by sewer back-flow because they not only smell awful, sewage backing up inside a home or business can pose health hazards.

When you have a small clog in a drain, you'll notice slow drainage. It's not convenient, but many people tend to just live with it. That slow drain eventually will lead to a completely clogged pipe.

Clog removal will be more of a challenge, and the resulting back-flow of water may cause property damage.

Clogged drains are the most common reason for service calls for emergency drain cleaning. If you hear gurgling or notice a slow-moving drain, don't ignore things. Addressing the problem will prevent the stress of a surprise flood or sewer backup.

What Does Cloudy Water Have to Do with Drain Cleaning?

You expect nothing less than sparkling, clear water when you turn on the faucet. When you notice cloudy or colored water, you have a problem!

There is a caveat - yellow, brown, blue, or green-tinged water may not qualify as an emergency. If you turn on the water and it's black, you're looking at signs you have mold present in your pipes. It's all that soap scum and hair stuck in the drain!

Black water flowing from your pipes can create a severe health risk, especially if you or anyone in your household or workplace has a sensitivity to mold.

Contacting a company that does emergency drain cleaning service is a step you must take when you notice cloudy or colored water. It could save your health (and your pipes). Next, we'll look at what types of companies handle drain cleaning.

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.

"They were very professional and on time, the technician did what he was suppose to do then cleaned up and left me with instructions on how to finish installing the parts after I finish doing some tile work that needs to be done."

Andrei G.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.

How to Find a Service That Cleans Drains

While it's a great addition to your annual maintenance routine, many people don't schedule regular drain cleaning. Instead, they're forced into a corner when they have an emergency and tend to call the first company that pops up in an online search.

While that tactic may work, it also could mean you end up hiring the wrong company. Finding a service that cleans drains does often begin with an online search, but you should go beyond choosing a service based solely on their online presence.

First, be specific about what you need. Your search terms should include drain cleaning, but to narrow down your choices even further, make sure you type in the word emergency as well.

Second, while you're browsing their website, make sure the service provider you're looking at offers drain cleaning. Many people look specifically for a plumber to do this job, and we've already mentioned that not all plumbers clean drains.

Now, if you do find a company that offers both drain cleaning and general plumbing services, like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Cleveland, you'll be prepared for any kind of plumbing or drain emergency. There's nothing like one-stop-shopping when it comes to home and business maintenance!

One More Reason to Schedule Drain Cleaning

The most common cause of drainage issues is the big, nasty clog. There's another contributor to dirty drains, but it's an external rather than an internal problem.

If you enjoy the trees growing in your yard, you've noticed that many trees take a break during the colder months. They stop producing new growth. Your sewer system may get a temporary break too from interference caused by tree root invasion.

Come spring, tree roots seek out nutrients and water. Any weak spot in your pipes will attract the roots. Left on their own long enough, tree roots will grow until they clog or break a pipe or sewer line.

Even though a plumbing company may make the repairs, a drain cleaning service plays a significant role in the tree root dilemma.

Since they use video cameras, a drain cleaning service can determine the severity of the problem. Their inspection can detect any cracks and their size, which helps you decide what services you need.

As a proactive measure, drain cleaning with a hydro jet clears out the tree roots before they get out of control. Once you have clogged pipes, drain cleaning is an excellent way to not only get rid of roots but also removes sludge buildup—another cause of clogs.

Looking for a Reputable Drain Cleaning Service?

Reputation means the world when you ask someone you don't know to come into your home or business. A reputable drain cleaning service isn't shy about sharing their success stories.

When looking for a drain cleaning company, read the online reviews, both on its website and other referral sites. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, so ask people you know who've used each provider's services.

The team at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Cleveland is ready to take care of your plumbing needs and emergency drain cleaning. Contact us today to schedule service.
