Frequently Asked Questions About Drain Cleaning

Properly functioning drains are essential to the health and safety of your home. Are you worried about your drains? Are you wondering if your drains are clogged? Interested in cleaning your drains preemptively to avoid future issues? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, check out our top FAQs about Kansas City drain cleaning below.

 

What Are The Signs of A Clogged Drain?

A number of signs can indicate a clogged drain. If water is draining slowly in your sinks and tubs, something may be clogging the pipes. Similarly, if you flush the toilet and then water backs up into your sinks or tubs, a blockage may be preventing the sewer water from leaving the house.
 

Also, in some cases, you may hear excessive gurgling in your pipes. Additionally, you may notice bad odors. The odors can come from rodents stuck in the pipes or other rotting biological materials such as hair or food.

 

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. You can buy liquid clog removers at most hardware and even some grocery stores. You simply pour these cleaners down the drain, and they essential eat or break down the clog.
 

However, you need to be careful. Commercial drain cleaners can irritate your skin and eyes. 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 carefully. Most drain cleaning products can only be used in sinks or tubs and not in toilets.

 

When Should You Call A Professional Drain Cleaner?

Ideally, if you’re having any of the issues listed above, you should call a drain cleaning company as soon as possible. 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 plumbing repairs that could be avoided.
 

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

 

How Often Should You Have Your Drains Cleaned?

In most cases, homeowners only need to get their drains cleaned on an as-needed basis. In particular, if you suspect a clog, you should get your drains cleaned by a professional plumber.
 

However, in some cases, you may want to get your drains cleaned preemptively. If your home has a history of clogs or if your home is older, consider talking with a professional about cleaning your drains.

 

What Is The Best Drain Cleaning Technique & Method?

The best drain cleaning method depends on the issue you are having with your drains, the age of your pipes, and a few other factors. If you have a blockage in the drains, you may want to hire a professional to clean them with an auger.
 
Sometimes called a “drain snake”, an auger unrolls into your drain and pushes the clog through the system. You can buy augers, but ideally, you should not use an auger on your own. If you use too much force, you could easily break through the pipes, causing a much bigger problem.
 

In other situations, especially for pre-emptive cleaning, you should consider a high-pressure water jet. Again, you should always let a professional handle this for you. High-pressure water jets move along clogs, but they also take care of buildup around the edges of your pipes. That includes grease, hair, and other items that may lead to a blockage over time.
