Symptoms of Clogged Pipes and Drains
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible, as without prompt attention, problems like these are likely to get worse and could ultimately necessitate more expensive repairs.
6 Warning Signs of a Clogged Drain:
- Unpleasant odors
- Slow or sluggish draining in sinks, tubs and showers
- Gurgling noises
- Toilets not flushing
- Sewage backing up into the sink, tub or shower
- Slow drainage in your garbage disposal, dishwasher or washing machine
The good news is that a clogged pipe or drain isn’t necessarily indicative of a significant plumbing repair problem. For example, shower, tub and bathroom sink drains can easily get clogged by accumulations of hair and soap scum.
And kitchen sink drains often get clogged when a family member puts something down the drain or in the garbage disposal that wasn’t meant to go there, like grease, oil, fibrous vegetables – celery, asparagus, banana peels … you get the idea.
Resist the temptation to buy a drain cleaning solution at the supermarket or home improvement store. The chemicals in drain cleaners are highly toxic and may damage your pipes.
