Warning Signs of a Clogged Drain

Clogged drains can cause many problems.  When your drains are clogged, it can be so inconvenient. You can’t use the sink, tub, or shower if the drain is clogged.  This can make getting your day-to-day chores and getting yourself clean and ready for the day really difficult. It is important to know that there are a few warning signs that can happen that will show you you might get a clogged drain in the near future.  If you know what to look for, you can call a plumber and have the drain cleaned out before a clog forms.

Clogged drains can cause many problems

The first warning sign that you might soon have a clogged drain is a drain that is slow.  If the sink or tub fills up with water that takes a while to drain, you probably have a partial clog.  It does not take long for this to turn into a full-on clogged drain.  Cleaning out a partial clog can ensure you will not end up with a clog that prevents you from using your sink or bathtub.

Another warning sign that you might have drain problems is if you notice that your drains smell. A strong odor coming from your drains means that something is stuck down there and is most likely collecting and growing bacteria.  Having your drains cleaned out by a professional will remove the threat of a clog and the odor. Your drains will smell fresh and work when you need them to.
