Most homeowners typically believe that a drain cleaning is something that only needs to be done with they have an obvious clog blocking their pipes. Not only that, they think they can just go get some store-bought drain cleaner and the problem will be resolved.
Unfortunately, drain cleaner can congeal and actually create a bigger clog than you were handling to begin with. Drain problems won't always be obvious, nor will your drain cleaning needs. We've shared some signs below for you to watch out for to determine if you may need to schedule professional drain cleaning.
If you already know that you deal with clogs on a regular basis, and have tried to clear them out with store-bought cleansers to only have them come back, then it goes without saying that your efforts have been insufficient. If your drains keep clogging despite your temporary fixes, then it could very well be time for you to call on our professional plumbers to resolve the problem.
As waste sticks to the walls of your piping, it can begin to give off a bad odor. This is particularly true when it comes to your kitchen sink drain, which is subjected to many more different types of waste than a bathroom sink would be. If you detect a foul odor coming from your drains, then it's time to have a professional plumber inspect and potentially clean the drain.
Drain clogs develop over time, as waste sticks to the walls of your pipes. The more this occurs, the more the flow of water is restricted. So if you notice your drain has started to work more and more slowly, then it is certainly a sign that you need a professional drain cleaning.
