It is always best to treat a clogged drain before it becomes a major issue. Here are some signs that you may have a clogged drain:
- Water is backing up out of the sink drain.
- Water is pooling around a shower drain and then drains out slowly.
- Toilet bowl water bubbles when you use the sink faucet.
- Water is draining slowly from your bathtub or sink. This can indicate a clog even if there is no back up yet.
- There is a gurgling sound coming from drains after running major appliances such as washing machines or dishwashers.
- There is a mysterious puddle of water on the floor near a sink or tub.
- There is a rotting food smell from a kitchen sink or disposal.
While clogs can be a pain in the neck there are a few things you can try before calling the experts.
- For clogged sinks, try filling it part way with water, plug one drain (if it is a double kitchen sink) and then plunge the other side.
- For bathroom sinks plug the overflow hole with a rag and then plunge the sink repeatedly.
- For the toilet uses a flange plunger and plunge the toilet bowl.
- Do not use chemical drain cleaners as it can corrode your pipes and often times it will not solve your problem.
