Signs Of a Clogged Drain

You will want to keep an eye out for a few common signs of a clogged drain. The quicker the problem is caught, the easier it is to remove the clog to create a clear passageway for your water and to avoid damage to your drain, walls and floors, and water-based appliances. Here are some signs to look out for:

How to Clear a Clogged Drain

While calling a professional is always recommended for a stubborn clog, there are a few techniques you can use to try and dislodge a minor clog yourself:

If you are dealing with a clogged sink, whether in the kitchen or bathroom, you will want to start by filling the sink partially with water. Next, use a wet rag to cover the overflow hole (if there is one) to ensure that none of the water escapes.

Then, use a plunger to plunge the drain. This should allow the mineral or soap scum build-up to come out of the sink. You may need to use a drain snake to help pull out the clog.

If you are dealing with a clogged shower drain, the same can be applied, just be sure to remove the drain cover first. A drain snake, as mentioned earlier, is an invaluable tool to help remove clogged hair and soap scum. For the safety of yourself and your family, always be sure to use gloves when handling clogged drains to help stop the spread of germs and bacteria.

When to Call a Professional Plumber for Drain Cleaning

Some clogs cannot be removed with simple home remedies and may require a more firm hand, knowledge of drains and plumbing, and the right equipment. This is where Bewley Plumbing can help. 

Stubborn clogs can lead to bacteria causing corrosion of the drain pipes, leading to leaks and water damage. It is important to contact a plumbing professional right away if you have been fighting a clog or if your pipes have not been cleaned in a year.

The best way to avoid clogs is to ensure that your drains are properly maintained. A yearly cleaning can help remove the buildup of rust, hair, grease, soap scum, and other harsh materials that can threaten the integrity of your drain pipes.
