Properly working drains are an important part of everyday life. When they become clogged it can be stressful and difficult to know what to do. There are times when fixing a clogged drain by yourself proves to be ineffective or even causes more harm. It’s important to know when drains need professional attention, instead of trying to fix them yourself. Below are several signs that your drains need professional cleaning. 

Frequent Clogs

It may seem like every time you turn around the sink is clogged again. While store-bought drain cleaner may seem to fix the problem for a week or two, it’s not a coincidence that your drain keeps clogging back up again. Chances are that there is a major clog inside your pipes that needs to be cleaned out before it gets worse. If you’re noticing that the same drain seems to clog frequently, or that several drains around the home are experiencing clogging, Jack Ward & Sons Plumbing Co. is available 24/7 to provide drain cleaning

Gurgling Sounds

You can hear a gurgling sound coming from your drains or toilet but your drains seem to be working just fine. The truth is, your plumbing should never be making any noises. Gurgling noises coming from the toilet or draining are possibly a sign of a clog forming inside your pipes. As a clog forms, air bubbles also begin to form as water tries to rush past the clog. These air bubbles create a gurgling noise, which should be used as a warning that your pipes need to be cleaned out. Once your drains are cleaned out, you shouldn’t hear any gurgling noises coming from your plumbing.

Slow Moving Drains

Are you noticing that your sinks and bathtub are draining at a slower rate than normal? Or maybe you noticed that the water fills up around your ankles quickly while you’re taking a shower. These are signs that your drains are clogged and need to be cleaned out. There are several temporary fixes to fix slow-moving drains, but eventually, you are going to need someone to come and professionally clean them out. Foreign objects such as hair, grease, food, and soap slowly build up over time, creating a blockage. This blockage is normal and unavoidable after a while, but the good news is that a professional plumber can usually clear the blockage pretty quickly.

Foul Odor

If you have an unexplained foul odor coming from your drains that won’t go away no matter how many times you’ve cleaned, it could be coming from a clog. Even if your drains seem to be draining properly or you can’t see any physical evidence of a clog, it’s still possible that food and other particles are building up inside of your pipes. Unfortunately, this odor won’t go away until your pipes are properly cleaned out, but the good news is that Jack Ward & Sons offers affordable and quality drain cleaning 24/7. 

Overflowing Toilets

Your toilet is only going to overflow when there is some sort of blockage such as a clogged toilet. If your toilet is overflowing without any clear signs of blockage it usually means that it’s an issue with your drainage lines. Waste and toilet paper can clog up your pipes over time, causing your toilet to not empty properly. Instead of having to constantly mop up water from your overflowing toilet, call Jack Ward & Sons to have your pipes unclogged today.
