When to Get Drain Cleaning Services?

Did you know contemporary plumbing systems have been around since the 1840s? With such convenience at our fingertips, it’s easy to forget how much time and energy this modern marvel saves us. And sometimes, your pipes need professional attention to keep your house running smoothly. 

Read on to learn how your pipes tell you they need drain cleaning services and why hiring professionals to do it is always a wise choice.

Slow Draining

We’ve all experienced clogged toilets and slow-moving drains. On occasion, a quick plunge does the trick, and that’s that. Unfortunately, if you keep noticing your kitchen sink, bathtub, or other drains taking their sweet time for the water to go down, you’ve likely got enough accumulation in the pipes to need drain cleaning.

Strange Noises

Another sign your plumbing has buildups or clogs is when you hear strange noises as the water goes down, such as gurgling or bubbling. These noises sound exactly like what they are—updrafts and downdrafts getting trapped between debris. These air pockets have nowhere else to go but up and out of your drain.

Foul Odors

Unidentifiable smells in your home are always a scary situation. If your nose leads you to a drain, what you’re smelling is probably food waste and sewage stuck in your pipes. This foul odor can be even more potent during the hot summer months, bringing you to realize you need professional drain cleaning even faster.

Water Buildup

This issue often goes hand in hand with slow-moving drainage. If your washer struggles to drain, your kitchen sink always has water in it, or you end up ankle-deep in water by the end of every shower, you know what we’re talking about. Your drains aren’t just slow; they’re almost non-functioning. With the proper drain cleaning service, your house can clear away old, dirty water the way it should—quickly and easily.

Fruit Flies

It may sound surprising, but if you suddenly have a fruit fly infestation, your drains may be to blame. These pests seemingly appear out of nowhere, but there is a reason for their presence—spoiled fruit, vegetables, and other organic materials. These tiny bugs feed off of the rotten food and multiply quickly, making it hard to get them under control. 

If you’ve thoroughly cleaned your kitchen and there is no food out on your counters, but you’ve still got fruit flies, they are probably attracted to the food particles in your drain.

Benefits of Drain Cleaning Services

If you’ve tried to tackle the issues above on your own, you know the solution is often short-lived. Using a plunger can help remove some blockages, but this method often doesn’t address the accumulation of debris along the insides of your pipes. You could also stop by the store and pick up a bottle of that heavy-duty drain cleaning solution, but you may be causing more damage to your plumbing than you are helping it. 

Instead, the problems above are best resolved by professionals. The plumbers at Kellie Plumbing have the knowledge and experience needed to pinpoint the specific issue your drainage system is having, and they will know the best approach to solving it. 

Plus, our plumbers come with state-of-the-art equipment, such as cameras, drain snakes, and hydro jetters, to ensure every last bit of buildup is removed correctly from your pipes. We can also double-check and see that you aren’t dealing with a more significant issue, such as tree roots that have broken into your plumbing system or a mainline blockage. 

When you let us take care of your drain cleaning, you can rest easy knowing you won’t have to confront any plumbing emergencies. Also, you won’t have to worry about that drain clogging up again in a month or two.
