Do I Need My Drains Cleaned?

February 22, 2022 | Blog

Many homeowners don’t turn to professional drain cleaning until they have a plumbing problem. Some homeowners may not know that there are other reasons you may need your drains professionally cleaned.

Our Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect team wants to help all homeowners know when to call us for professional drain cleaning.

5 Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning

Like most home appliances, it is good to practice prevention measures before something wrong happens. It is always better to be proactive about keeping your house in good order. Here are five signs you should call us for preventive drain cleaning.

Foul Odors

When everything runs smoothly, your sewage and waste will go directly to the sewer line. If your drains are clogged, the sewage will sit in the pipes, and the smell will come up. If you notice an unfavorable smell coming from your drains, it may be time to schedule an inspection with us.

Fruit Flies

Fruit flies are those pesky small flies that gather around rotten food. Food debris caught in your drain will attract fruit flies. By getting your sink drain professionally cleaned, these pesky flies will go away.

Standing Water

Standing water can appear in your sinks or showers, and usually means your drain is completely clogged. Clogged drains are a definite sign you require professional drain cleaning.

Slow Drainage

If water drains slower than usual in your bathroom or sink, your drain may have built-up debris. Left untreated buildup can turn into a clogged drain that may require more maintenance. Call us today to schedule a professional drain cleaning service.

Odd Sounds

If you hear a gurgling sound coming from your drain, you have a clogged drain. A blockage is producing the gurgling noise in your pipes. If the sound comes from multiple drains, this could mean a more significant problem, such as a broken pipe.

Odd sounds coming from drains should always be a sign to give a call to come and inspect your plumbing system.

What Happens When Clogged Drain Goes Untreated?

Clogged drains can turn into a more costly issue if it goes untreated. They will turn into backups that will then cause flooding in your home. When your home floods, it can create severe structural damage. Our number one recommendation for any homeowner is: schedule regular services.

Why You Should Receive Regular Drain Clearing

Regular professional drain cleaning will help you prevent blockages and help remove odd smells, while standard services will also make your home cleaner. As a bonus, regular drain services will help you save money. Many drainage issues that can be prevented with drain cleaning may be more costly than a simple drainage cleaning.

This is why we always recommend receiving at least one regular drain cleaning throughout the year.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
