Make Sure You Schedule Drain Cleaning This Winter

drainThere’s a lot to do to get your home ready for the winter season. One of those things, though you may not have thought of it too much, is scheduling drain cleaning. If your drains are in good shape, the rest of your plumbing system will benefit. If the drains are clogged, it will cause problems throughout the system. Have a look at some of the signs that you should call for drain cleaning this winter, and what can happen if you don’t.

Slow Drainage

The number one issue that drain systems have to deal with throughout the year is clogging. Clogging can happen for a lot of reasons, but it tends to happen over time. As the waste builds up on the pipe walls, the flow of water through the pipes is restricted and the drain drains more slowly. Eventually, the clog completes and the drain becomes unusable. If you notice one of your drains draining more slowly than it normally does, you should call for drain cleaning services as soon as possible. You don’t want to wait for the clog to complete before you call a professional.

Bad Smells

Bad smells tend to be more common for kitchen sinks, as they tend to deal with more food waste than other drains in the house. Some waste can give off a stench as it builds up in the drain pipe. If your drains are giving off a smell like an open sewer, it is definitely time to schedule a drain cleaning appointment.
