Signs it’s Time for Professional Drain Cleaning Services

No matter how well you take care of your plumbing, eventually you’ll have to schedule a professional service. It may be for a plumbing repair or some other need. But there is a plumbing service that you can invest in that is preventative and that’s professional drain cleaning services.

You can even consider us the all-in-one solution in Okotoks for plumbing and heating. No matter what the problem is, we can help. But ideally, you want to stay ahead of problems. Keep reading to learn more about the warning signs that can indicate you need to schedule a professional drain cleaning now before your plumbing problems get worse. 

Persistent Clogs

It’s possible that you have persistent clogs in a single location or across drains all over your home. Clogs are easy to pinpoint because your drains will empty water slowly. A sink or bathtub may begin to retain water because it cannot drain as fast as the water is coming out of the faucet. If the clog is in one single sink, that means you have an isolated problem. But if drains all over your house are emptying slowly, that could mean you have a bigger clog somewhere deep in your plumbing system. 

Persistent clogs are ones that you cannot get rid of. Maybe you have called for plumbing service to break up a clog and it keeps coming back. Or maybe you have tried hardware store drain cleaning chemicals and they are not working. Either way, ignoring persistent drain clogs will only lead to bigger problems later on. 

Bad Odors

If there are bad smells wafting up from the drains in your home, that’s a sign that something is wrong with your plumbing system. All of the pipes in your home have a feature called p-traps that hold water in a curved section of pipe to block sewer line smells from coming back up into your home. If you begin to smell bad odors, you want to address the problem right away. 

It could be that mold and mildew are growing in your drains, and the spores are coming back up into your home. It’s also possible that your plumbing is not blocking the sewer smells like it should. Either way, bad smells are not just gross. They can actually pose health hazards to your family depending on what type of bacteria or fungus is causing them. 

Poor Water Pressure

You should have strong water pressure across all faucets in your home. If you begin to notice that you are losing water pressure in one or more of your faucets, give us a call. It could be a problem with your hot water tank if you only lose pressure when the hot water is on. But if you have low pressure across both hot and cold water, you may have a more widespread problem. Our team can find the cause of the problem, fix it, and hopefully prevent it from happening again in the future.
