3 Signs That You Need Professional Drain Cleaning

sink-drainWe recently wrote a post here about the ways in which professional drain cleaning can benefit you. Today, we are going to cover a similar topic, but one you need to consider before you can enjoy the many benefits of professional drain cleaning. That is the topic of how you can recognize the need for professional drain cleaning in St. Petersburg, FL to begin with. It is the obvious starting point, but it is also a topic that too many homeowners have too little information about.

Don’t wait until your drains stop moving completely before scheduling service. Instead, familiarize yourself with these warning signs so that you can get out ahead of the problem. We are here to effectively and thoroughly clean your drains for lasting results,  but you need to alert us to the problem before we can do so. After all, we’re not just driving through neighborhoods and knocking on doors to inquire about the performance of the drains in the houses!

Are Your Drains Gurgling?

When you run water in your home, be it at your sinks or in your bathtub, what does it sound like? Have you noticed a gurgling sound coming from the drains as the water goes down? If so, then there is your reason for scheduling professional drain cleaning services.

Remember, water doesn’t have to come to a complete stop to justify the professional cleaning of your drains. In fact, it shouldn’t. You can go ahead and try giving the drain a few pumps of the plunger, but if that doesn’t do the trick, then your next move should be to call our number.

Do Your Drains Smell Bad?

When you stand over the sink to brush your teeth or wash some vegetables for dinner, can you smell a foul odor coming from the drains? If so, what do you do? Pour some scented solution down the drain to cover it up? That is not the right move.

There are actually a few different reasons why your drains may smell, including dry p-traps and other more serious issues. In many cases, though, and particularly in the kitchen, it is simply due to materials stuck in the drain. Professional drain cleaning is the solution you need in such cases.

Are Your Drains Moving Slowly?

Okay, so your drains have not come to a complete standstill. That’s great and all, but it really doesn’t mean that your drains are functioning properly. Drains slow down in an incremental manner, and that can make it easy to overlook the issue. Again, though, you don’t want to wait until your drains clog up entirely before scheduling service.

If you try to drain the sink after doing some dishes and notice the water moving slowly, or if you are always standing in a couple of inches of water as your shower drains, then you already need drain cleaning. Consider it a preemptive strike against more serious clogs, and let us know when you start to notice these symptoms.
