Common Drain Problems
Drains can clog for any number of reasons. While our expert plumbers have seen it all, there are two specific issues that pop up on a daily basis: difficult clogs and foul odors.
If your sinks or bathtub drains are backed up, you can try “do it yourself”, or DIY, drain cleaning. But stubborn clogs aren’t so easy to clear up. Liquid-Plumr® and Drano® may get your sink to drain, but they also corrode your plumbing, causing bigger issues down the road. As a rule, DIY methods help your sink drain but, all too often, they only remove part of the problem and you may find your tub backing up within a few days or weeks.
Bathrooms and kitchens are no strangers to foul odors. They are, after all, some of the most trafficked rooms in any home. But a pervasive stink coming from your drains is an early indicator of plumbing issues. This could be as simple as food stuck in the drain or a sewer trap that’s stuck open. Occasionally, it could be an indicator that you have larger plumbing issues going on in your lines. For this reason, it’s important to never ignore any pervasive odors coming from your drains.
This is why it’s important to have a licensed plumber come inspect your drains. Our team can quickly, and cost-effectively, identify the exact source of the problem and prevent it from returning.
