3 Signs You May Have a Clogged Drain

3 Signs of a Clogged DrainIf you’re hearing gurgles and bubbling that are coming from anything other than your kids, it may be time to take a closer listen and locate the source of the noise. Many homeowners grow accustomed to drains that become slower and slower to empty water and waste fully, but this can be an early warning sign that a clogged drain is forming and problems are just around the corner.

Don’t get caught by surprise by a sewer line clog or worse: sewage backup. Keep an eye out for these symptoms that may be giving you heads up that a clog is forming and issues are imminent.

Call a Plumber for Clogged Drain Service if…

  • Drains are stinky – Not only is this unsavory — especially as holiday gatherings loom in the not-too-distant-future — but it’s a potential health hazard if drains are releasing toxic fumes back into your home. Bad smells coming from drains are a key sign that sewage backup is highly likely.
  • Water backs up from drains – It may not be uncommon for a single drain to have clogs here and there, especially in highly used areas such as the kitchen and showers. However, multiple, simultaneous drains that are backing up is cause for concern and should be addressed ASAP!
  • You notice bubbling or gurgling in the toilet or drains – The toilet can be a great tattle tail when it comes to problems in the sewer line, but you have to pay attention. When you’re running water in other areas of the house, if you notice bubbles in the toilet, you’d be wise to call your local plumbing contractor.
