When Is It a Good Time to Hire an Emergency Drain Cleaning Service?

Your kitchen sink is starting to block up, draining slower and slower each time.

Should you call a professional drain cleaner or plumber? Sometimes it's hard to know what to do when you're worried about your home.

However, there are some occasions when emergency drain cleaning is the best way to solve the problem, rather than trying to do it yourself.

Read on to learn the best times to call a drain cleaner—they might not be what you'd expect. Or, if you're unsure how to find a service who cleans drains, we can help with that too.

Flooding or Standing Water

Has your clogged drain caused flooding under or around the sink or pipes? Or, have you noticed puddles of standing water near your kitchen or bathroom?

If so, it sounds like you need a professional drain cleaner as soon as possible. We are available 24/7 for any plumbing emergencies, day or night.

Floods or water accumulation can be a sign not only of drain blockages, but also cracked, broken, or frozen pipes. These can be repaired if caught early but can do long-term damage if left untreated. Water damage can cause mold and mildew problems, weaken drywall, or cause structural issues in your home.

Unusual Smells

Sometimes drain smells come from food debris or the garbage disposal. But if you are noticing that the smells are becoming more frequent, you could have a build-up of food, sewage, or cooking oils in your main pipe system.

As a general rule, most foods should never go down the kitchen drain, unless you have a garbage disposal. Avoid putting common items such as grease, eggshells, coffee grounds, or veggie cuttings in the kitchen drain.

This can be very difficult to unclog yourself, so consider bringing in an expert in the form of a reputable drain cleaning service.

Multiple Clogged Drains

Are you starting to notice blockages or slow drainage from not just one drain in the home, but several? This can be a clear sign of a larger problem with your piping systems.

This can't be solved with drain cleaner or snakes, as the cause of the problem is likely beyond the reach of these products. A drain expert can get to the cause of the problem and can solve it, no matter what types of pipes you have in your home.

Strange Sounds

Most drains gurgle from time to time, but if strange sounds are becoming more common, you may have serious blockages in your system.

Always keep an eye out for strange sounds when flushing the toilet, running the sinks, or draining water after doing dishes.

Get in touch with us to find out who does emergency drain cleaning in your area, and put an end to strange sounds in your plumbing system.
