Clogs are a common household problem, so it pays to know a few basic ways to effectively deal with one. Fortunately, clogged drains can be easily prevented with maintenance and you can always call on a professional to fix your clog problem.
In this article, Handyman Connection® of Orange County discusses the importance of drain cleaning as well as the signs that will tell you when it’s time to have your drains professionally cleaned.
Why Drain Cleaning Is Important
Some small blockages are inevitable. If left unattended, they can turn into bigger drainage issues. But by being proactive, you can avoid the hassle of clogged drains and costly repair expenses. Apart from that, having your drains professionally cleaned can improve the smell in your home too. Oftentimes, when there is clogging, no bleach or air freshener can cover up the odor of rotting or decomposing waste or debris in your drainage system. The best way to get rid of it is to clear your drains.
A session of professional drain cleaning can also help you locate potential problems in your drainage system. Some of the possible issues that can potentially find are corrosion, fractures, leaks, and wear and tear. Once these problems are identified, you can have it fixed permanently.
When to Have Your Drains Professionally Cleaned
Below are some of the things that you should look out for to know if it’s time to have your drains professionally cleaned:
- Standing water won’t drain completely
- Water is draining so slowly in your sink, shower, or washing machine
- More insects have begun appearing in your home, especially near drains
- Unpleasant odors near drains
- Unusual sounds coming from your plumbing
