Many homeowners often ask our Natchez Heating & Cooling team when they should receive drain cleaning services. There are a few different answers to this question. We want to give homeowners some signs it is time for a drain cleaning service, as well as describe what happens during a service. We also want to warn homeowners about skipping out on their drain cleaning services.
Signs You Need a Drain Cleaning Service
When you experience a drain clog or other issue with your drain, your first instinct may be to grab some drain cleaner. Do it yourself drain cleaning can do more harm than good. Here are some signs you need to schedule a drain cleaning service.
Slow Moving Drain
It is important not to treat your drains as trash cans and be mindful about what goes into your home’s drainage system. If it takes your drains longer than usual to empty water, you have a clogged drain. Over time, your drains can get a buildup of different substances. A slow-moving drain that goes unattended can create more significant problems later.
Standing water is an issue similar to a slow-moving drain. This will occur when there is a significant blockage in your drains. When your drain is significantly clogged, and no water can pass through, it is time to schedule plumbing services.
Problem With Fruit Flies
Fruits flies are pesky insects that love to make your drains homes. They often appear when something is rotting in your drain. Our plumbing professionals are equipped to clear out the food. Once the food is gone, the fruit flies will begin to disappear.
If your drain is flowing fine, but you hear gurgling sounds, this could be a sign of build-up in your gutters. When a clog begins to form, it will create air bubbles, and as the water moves past the air bubbles, it will make a gurgling noise.
When your toilet is overflowing, the issue may be simple to fix by using a plunger. Even after using a plunger to try and remove any debris in the drainage system, there may be a bigger problem.
Professional Drain Cleaning Services
The drain cleaning process can be different depending on the issue at hand. We will go through some of our professionals’ usual motions when cleaning your drainage system.
First, our plumbers will take a motorized drain snake that can remove most obstacles that may be lingering in your drain. If they need more information about what exactly is causing the issue, they may use a special camera to inspect. These cameras can help our technicians target the exact problem.
You may also see our plumbing professionals use a hydro-jetter. The hydro-jetter is a powerful device that forces water into your drains to remove any problematic stuck debris. They may then go through with the camera to ensure all waste is gone from your drains.
