FAQ: Sewer, Drain & Excavation

What Are the Signs of a Clogged Drain?

If you’re noticing any of the following signs, it’s time to call a plumber: Water takes longer than usual to drain from sinks and tubs. Water backs up in sinks and tubs during flushing. Gurgling noises can be heard in the pipes. Foul odors are noticed coming from the drains.

Can You Get Rid of Clogs on Your Own?

If you notice any of the above issues, you can try to remedy the situation yourself by using a liquid clog remover. These cleaners are available for purchase at hardware and grocery stores. However, you need to be careful when using them. Commercial drain cleaners can irritate your skin, eyes, and lungs. They can also damage your drains or pipes in some cases. Finally, if you decide to use a clog remover, make sure that you check the manufacturer’s instructions regarding which drains the product should be used with—most products should not be used in toilets.

If you decide not to use a commercial drain cleaner, there are other ways that you can try to clear up a clogged drain on your own. One way is by pouring hot boiling water down your drain while simultaneously pouring vinegar down after it has cooled down slightly (you should have used hot water because it helps soften up grease). Another method is by pouring baking soda down your drain followed by vinegar; this method works well because baking soda helps dissolve soap scum while vinegar helps break down grease and other oils in the pipes themselves.

When Should You Call a Professional Plumbing Service?

When you’re experiencing any of the issues listed above, it’s time to call a professional drain cleaning company. These professionals can find the clog and clean your drains for you. If you ignore the clog, sewage may spill out into your home, leading to expensive cleanup and repairs.

If you’re trying to solve the issue on your own with clog remover, pay attention to how much you use. If you are using that product on a regular basis, your drains need professional help.
