Blocked drains can be such a hassle, especially if they continue to happen week after week. After all, there are just so many times that you can stand there with a plunger in your hands as you try once again to get your drain and the water moving along.
Here are 4 signs it may be time to call a plumber for your blocked drains:
If you notice that your drains have been draining slower than usual for a long time, than it is time to call a plumber to see what is preventing the water from going down as quickly as it should. It could be something simple like hair or grease or it could be a little more complex. Either way, a plumber can help get it straightened out a lot faster than you can.
Changes in Pressure
You should never have the water pressure of your faucets change and slow down, but if it does, then you may have a pipe blockage somewhere in your home. We recommend that you have this fixed, so that you can go back to enjoying the increased water pressure that you are used to having.
Gurgling drains are never a good thing, so we recommend staying close and listening to your drains every once in a while to see if you hear any funny sounds. The gurgling sounds are created when food scraps or other objects get trapped inside your drain and then those items get mixed with air and the water that runs down the drain. The food scraps or objects need to be removed so that they do not permanently clog your drain.
No one wants to smell anything bad coming out of their drain, but those odors are from decaying foods or other organic matter that has built up inside your drain and pipes over time. The smell is bad enough, but it can also be very unhealthy for you and your family. We recommend calling a plumber to have them remove whatever is stuck in your drain or pipes, so that your drain can start smelling clean once again.
