One of the most tedious things to keep an eye on is the health of your drains. Usually, people only notice they need their pipes cleaned when it starts to create an issue. Because individuals neglect the home’s plumbing system until the last minute, they usually call a plumber in a panic, hoping the technician can solve the problem immediately.
If you want to avoid this type of scramble and emergency, there are a few ways you can head off this problem at the pass. Your drains will start to exhibit some signs they need cleaning before the issue gets out of hand.
For example, a couple of signs you may need to call a plumber is slow draining and gurgling sounds. If your sink or tub is taking longer than usual to drain, this is usually the first sign a clog is forming in the pipes. Soap, grease, and hair are often the culprits in these types of clogs. Likewise, gurgling noises are a sign of oxygen bubbling up through a clog. Without a professional drain cleaning, a full clog is going to happen, which can cause significant issues later.
In some cases, you can also tell you need a drain cleaning by the smell. Mysterious odors from your drains might mean a build-up of junk is starting to accumulate in the drain, which could be rotting in your pipes. Alternatively, sewer gases could be pushed back up through the drain if there are issues deeper down in the system. These gases can be hazardous to your health and should always be taken care of by a professional.
