When you have a drain in your home or business that’s backed up, it can become a serious issue. While there are a few things you can try to fix the issue yourself, you might get to the point that you need to call in the experts. Here are a few ways to know if it’s time to call in your local drain cleaning service.


Your drain is going to give you some warning signs before it becomes fully clogged. One of those warning signs is that whatever it is you’re trying to flush down the drain will take a long time to do what it’s supposed to do. The buildup inside of your pipes will only get worse and eventually become a fully clogged fairway if you don’t do something about it right away. If you notice a slow flow, it’s time to have a drain cleaning service come out and clear the buildup.


Another good indication that you need a drain cleaning service out is an off-smelling odor (or even a downright awful smell). This is particularly true coming from a kitchen or food prep area but can be a good indicator anywhere in a building or home. If you notice a strong and foul odor coming from multiple drain locations, it could indicate a more serious sewer issue and should definitely be dealt with immediately.


The best way to avoid a clogged drain catastrophe is to simply have your local plumber out on a regular basis to keep your pipes clear and free of debris. This will ensure fewer headaches and overall peace of mind knowing that your system will run smoothly day in and day out. Have your local drain cleaning service out every year or two even if there are no obvious problems to avoid sudden issues cropping up.
