Common Problems with Drains

DrainWe hate to think about problems in the home, whether they are minor electrical problems, structural damage or plumbing mishaps. However, it’s important that we stay educated on how to spot problems in the home so we can tackle the issue head-on. Keeping an eye out for drain problems is critical because you can save yourself a bundle by avoiding costly replacements.

Slow Drain

Ignoring a drain that works at a snail’s pace may not be a big deal for a while, but ultimately, the problem will grow much worse. When the drain is operating at a slower than normal rate, this could be a sign of a grease buildup, a clog or minerals inside the piping. Waiting for this to grow worse will just cost you more in repairs later.

Bad Smelling Drains

A drain problem has most likely developed when you notice a foul smell in your home. This could be due to a pollutant buildup in the drain and will require professional drain cleaning to be fully removed.

Constant Clogging

Bathroom tubs and sinks are prone to clogging due to hair and soap constantly getting stuck. Both hair and soap can create hard-to-reach clogs which can make unclogging the drain nearly impossible.

If you notice several clogged drains in your home, this is probably due to the main drainage system. For this matter, you will definitely need to contact a professional who understands how to thoroughly remove grime from your drain.
