2. Unpleasant Odors
There are two common reasons drains develop an unpleasant smell, and both are reasons to have your drains cleaned.
Sewage odors are a symptom of the first reason, which is that your sewer lines have crashed. Other waste smells, especially those coming from your garbage disposal, typically point to food blockage, which is the second reason. Whatever the reason your plumbing appliances smell bad, a drain cleaner can diagnose and repair the issue.
3. Slow-Moving Drain
Slow-moving drains typically remove sink water quickly because there’s an obstacle lodged in the pipes. Air bubbles popping out from a slow drain as the water disappears are also signs of a clog.
Solidified cooking oil and food scraps are the most frequent clogs in kitchen sinks, while hair clogs are the most common issue in a bathroom sink.
Slow-draining appliances can overflow and create standing water in your living space if you leave them running without supervision. A professional drain cleaner can fix slow-moving issues by removing blockages, but you will need to hire a plumber for septic tank pumping for a slow-moving toilet.
4. Mold Near the Sink Drains
Mold and mildew grow in damp environments. Although sinks and plumbing appliances are damp by nature, they should be dry enough to keep mold away in their healthiest state.
If mold is growing in or near your sink drain, it’s a clear sign that there’s either a leak or that water isn’t correctly flowing through the system, which professional drain cleaning can fix.
5. Spiking Water Bills
Increased utility costs are a hidden consequence of clogged plumbing fixtures, as well as one of the most evident signs you need drain cleaning services. Heightened water bills typically indicate a leak in your home’s plumbing system, which your plumber can spot and fix during your professional drain cleaning.
