Most homeowners don’t think about scheduling a drain cleaning until there’s a complete blockage or immediate need for it. However, though the most visible sign of a blocked drain is the lack of water flow, there are a few more subtle signs that a significant blockage is on the way. To best avoid a considerable drain clog, here’s what you’ll want to look for:
Slow Draining Water
A visible sign of a drain clog is when the water no longer flows down the drain with ease. Often this can start by your water flow slowing down. You may notice that it bubbles or gurgles before emptying. If you see that your water is starting to drain slower and slower, you’ll want to schedule a cleaning.
A Constant Stench
If you feel like there’s an unpleasant or subtle stench of sewage coming for your drain or around your sink,.that smell is most likely a result of waste and debris clogged in the drain. A drain cleaning is the solution to that foul smell.
Attack of The Flies
A sudden infestation of flies is not only inconvenient, but it’s also a sign that a particular odor brought them in. If there is any waste, garbage, or sewage clogged in your pipes, flies can quickly be drawn in and begin to make their way into your home. The sooner you take care of the clog, the easier it will be to get rid of the flies.
New and Odd Noises
When drains are clogged, water must pass through a smaller space than it did before; this can lead to a gurgling or bubbling noise. If you are noticing that your drains are suddenly louder than before, it’s time to call in a trusty plumber.
