How To Tell When You Need Sewer Drain Cleaning

Every home in the Red Oak area is going to need sewer drain cleaning from time to time, but it can be hard to tell when the time has come to have your drains cleaned.

 You can’t see the insides of your drains, and your sewer line is under your house, virtually invisible without a camera inspection.

But there are ways to tell when your sewer drains are starting to clog if you know what to look for. Be on the lookout for the following three signs that your sewer drains need to be cleaned.

Call Combat today at (773) 724-9272.

3 Signs Your Sewer Drains Need To Be Cleaned

Slow Drains & Backups

Water backups aren’t always as obvious as a flooded basement. Sometimes they’re subtle, like a kitchen sink that drains slowly even after clearing food particles from the drain. If you notice a single drain moving slowly, there’s probably a clog in that specific drain, but if all of your drains are draining slowly and backing up, you probably have a sewer clog. Have your sewer drains checked for blockages by a licensed plumber.

Foul Odors Coming From Your Drains

Many times, clogs and blockages aren’t large enough to interrupt your water flow but still manage to make their presence known—to your nose! If you’re noticing a pervasive stench coming from your drains, you probably have something lodged in there that needs to be removed. Get rid of the odor by having a local plumber diagnose the source of the stink.

Unusual Noises Coming From Your Pipes

Whenever you’re using your plumbing, keep an ear tuned to the sounds coming from your drains and pipes. If your drains are gurgling or slurping, or if you hear your pipes knocking from inside the walls, it means something isn’t right with your plumbing. Have a plumber evaluate the strange noise before the problem escalates.

If you’re experiencing two or even all three of these sewer clog symptoms, you need to call us to resolve the problem right away. However, if you experience just one of these three signs, you may not have a sewer problem but some other plumbingneed. Whatever the issue is, Combat Plumbing can diagnose and resolve any plumbing issue your pipes throw at us. Schedule a consultation by calling (773) 724-9272.
