Clogged drains can disrupt your entire day and cause you hours of worry because unless you unblock the drains, you can’t use that fixture. This can be very inconvenient, especially if you have only one bathroom or one sink. Thankfully, you don’t have to bear the situation and wait for repairs for long time. Just give us at SPS Plumbers a call and we’ll be at your location promptly, ready to get the job done.
What are the Signs of Clogged Drains?
You might not realize it, but there are some early signs of clogged drains. If you pay attention to these signs and address the problem promptly, you won’t have to deal with serious problems like bathroom floods and pipe bursts. Here are some signs that you need to keep in mind:
- Slow Drains – This is the earliest and most glaring sign of blocked drains. In a clog free drainage system, water drains very quickly and there’s virtually no pooling or standing water. However, if the water drains very slowly and it takes a few long seconds for the sink to be completely clear, you have a problem. Most people pour chemical drain cleaners or home solutions like baking soda down the drains to clear them, but it’s a better idea to call the plumber.
- Backed Up Drains – This is another glaring sign of clogged drains but at this stage the blockage is serious and requires immediate professional attention. The block is serious enough that water just can’t pass through and the sink or the bathtub isn’t usable. If you have backed up drains, you need to turn off the water access to that area and call us. Our emergency plumber will be at your location promptly and make sure that your system works well.
- Gurgling Sound – If you hear a gurgling sound every time you turn on the washing machine or use the toilet, there’s a problem in the drainage system. This can be anything from a minor clog to a major blockage. That’s why you need a professional plumber who has the skill and the equipment to assess the situation and handle the problem.
How Will We Unblock Drains?
As experienced plumbers, we know every technique in the book to unblock drains. We will make sure that your system is completely clear before we consider our job done.
- Our plumbers will inspect the system thoroughly to determine the location of the blockage.
- When we have isolated the location, we’ll use a drain auger to clear the drains. This method is usually sufficient to address all clogs.
- If the problem persists, we will look deeper into the drainage system and determine if the problem is with the sewer line.
