How to Know You Have a Clogged Drain
When it comes to drains, homeowners are at a disadvantage because they cannot see the condition of the inside of their pipes. Without their knowledge, a blockage could be forming in the pipe that attaches directly to a sink, shower, or toilet, or in some cases in the primary sewer line.
It is important to catch and address a clog before the situation gets out of control. But how can you know you have a blockage in your pipes? There are several warning signs to keep watch for.
The most common signs of a clogged drain include:
- A slow draining tub or sink
- Unpleasant odors coming from your drains
- Drains that produce gurgling sounds
- Changes in a toilets water level
- Wet spots on your lawn
- Plants growing near your sewer line
Failure to identify and seek a remedy for these early warning signs can result in a messy and costly situation. It is best to contact our licensed plumbers as soon as you notice any of these indications of a blockage so that we can get the problem fixed quickly and effectively. For severe issues, like an overflowing toilet, we are available for 24/7 emergency repair.
Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Although some drain blockages are inevitable, most drain clogs can be prevented. An understanding of what causes drains to clog and how to avoid them can save a lot of hassle and money. Some of the most common causes of clogs include:
- Grease, fats, and oils
- Small objects
- Cotton products
- Food waste
- Soap scum
Tips to Keep Clogs from Forming
A drain system is made up of a series of pipes that transport the water (and anything else) that goes down your drain outside of your home and into the sewer system. There are multiple places within those pipes where a clog can develop and cause problems. Most often, these blockages are caused by an accumulation of debris. This includes food, hair, grease, dirt, soap, toilet paper, or anything else you put in your drain.
To keep your drains flowing freely, we recommend:
- Keeping grease and coffee grounds out of your drains
- Using a screened drain stopper to prevent hair from going down your drains
- Flushing only human waste and toilet paper down your toilet
- Putting leftover food in the garbage, not the garbage disposal
- Using a mixture of hot water, baking soda, and vinegar to flush your drains regularly
