When do you need drain cleaning?

Clogged drains are some of the most common plumbing complaints out there. If there’s a buildup or blockage in any of the pipes that direct waste or sewage away from your home, you may end up with a clogged drain.

Anything from kid’s toys and feminine hygiene products to food waste and tree roots can cause drains and pipes to clog. So whether you run a restaurant, manage an apartment complex, or just want your house to feel like a home, make sure your pipes drain properly.

How To Know If You Have A Clogged Drain

There are a few telltale signs of clogged drains or pipes. If you suspect any of these issues you should call a local plumber right away.

1. Slow Sink Drain

Let’s get something straight–you shouldn’t have to wait for any sink in your house to drain. Something’s wrong if you have to stop using your shower or kitchen sink because water isn’t draining from the basin.

This slow drain situation happens when there’s something taking up space in your pipes. What usually happens next is your pipes back up because there’s no more room for waste water to pass through.

2. Bad Smell from Pipes

Most people have a low tolerance for stinkiness. It’s a good thing, because if your drains are emitting noxious fumes it means your sewer pipes are backed up and sewage gasses are entering your home.

We don’t need to go into detail why this is a problem, but it’s worth noting that there are some cases in which smelly drains are not caused by a clogged drain. It could be an issue with your P-trap, for example.

Our plumbers are committed to providing you the best possible service, which means telling you if a less invasive or less expensive solution will work for your problem. Make sure to call someone you trust when you have a plumbing issue.

3. Sewage Backup Into Drains

Once again, this is NOT normal! If you have sewage-looking water coming through your sinks or shower drains you definitely need to call your local plumbing company. This is a serious indication that your pipes are so backed up that they need professional help.

Emergency Drain Cleaning Services

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms of clogged drains, you should call us immediately. We make sure our service is prompt and thorough, so you get a “right the first time” solution quickly.

Fast responses are just one of the benefits of finding a local plumber. We know the area and can get to you more quickly than a company that has employees who need to travel.

Can I DIY Drain Cleaning?

If you have a minor clog near the surface of your drain line there’s a good change you can fix it yourself. You can use an enzyme drain cleaner, plastic drain snake, and other types of drain cleaner to fix a clogged drain.

That said, if your at-home drain cleaner solutions don’t work, or if you already have sewage backup in your sinks or showers–you should call a professional plumber.

Drain Cleaning – How It Works

When you call Top Notch Plumbing, LLC, you get our top-quality service in tackling tough clogs. We perform drain cleaning with our extensive knowledge of Northern Colorado plumbing and the gold-standard of industrial equipment.

The Basics of Drain Cleaning

For drain cleaning services, your plumber runs a cable, or “snake,” down your drain. The cable has abrasive blades on it which break up the clog and allow your pipe’s natural flow to take care of the rest.

Your Top Notch plumber can go the extra mile and perform a sewer camera inspection to find the exact point at which your pipes are blocked–saving you time and money.
