Signs Your Drains Are Clogged

Many homeowners go years without drain cleaning. This may not seem problematic until you suddenly have sewage backflow or clogs in multiple fixtures. Don’t let your drains reach that point — the sooner you take action, the easier drain cleaning will be.

If you’re not sure whether you need professional drain and sewer cleaning, consider if these problems sound familiar:

  • Bad smells coming from your drains
  • Frequent clogs
  • Recurring clogs
  • Sluggish drainage
  • Water accumulating in your sink or tub while brushing your teeth, washing dishes, or showering
  • Backflow in one drain when you’re using another

How To Avoid Clogged Drains

Clogged drains usually result from little problems compounding over time — pipes narrow from old food, tree roots, mineral buildup, corrosion, and more.

Avoid feeding the process that narrows your drains by not sending these items down your garbage disposal, toilet, sink, shower, or bathtub:

  • Fats, oils, and grease
  • Fibrous vegetables
  • Hair from people and pets
  • Garbage
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • “Flushable” wet wipes
  • Paper towels
  • Starchy materials, like rice, pasta, and potatoes

While small amounts will inevitably go down your drains, you’ll want to minimize them as much as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Cleaning

Is there a DIY option for drain cleaning?

While DIY drain cleaning methods such as baking soda solutions or chemical cleaners might provide temporary relief, they pale in comparison to the efficacy of professional drain cleaning. Harsh chemical drain cleaners can actually do more damage to your pipes, causing more blockages over time.

Especially if a clog is rooted deep within your sewer line, DIY drain cleaning won’t provide the relief you need. Only through expert drain cleaning will you identify the root source of your problem so you can get a long-lasting solution.

How often should drains be professionally cleaned?

In most circumstances, homeowners only need to have their drains professionally cleaned on an as-needed basis — usually when a clog is suspected. However, in some cases, it may be beneficial to have your drains cleaned once annually as a preventative measure.

In particular, if your home is older or has a history of repeat clogs, you may wish to consult with a plumbing professional to determine what drain cleaning schedule is best for your system.

What is the best drain cleaning method?

This really depends on the severity of your drain cleaning problem, how old your pipes are, and other system factors. For example, if there’s a blockage in your drain, augering or snaking might be the best solution to clear the problem.

Other times, flushout services might be a better option to eliminate debris buildup within your system. Consult with your plumber to get a personalized recommendation for your ideal drain cleaning solution.
