Before planning a party for your Reno friends and family, you should check your pipes to ensure that your plumbing can accommodate all those guests. The best way to determine if your pipes need cleaning is with a look at some of the common signs associated with clogged or dirty pipes. These signs may leave you feeling frustrated because you don’t know what to do. It can also makes you worry that the problem will worsen when loved ones use your bathroom. You can look at some of the top signs that it’s time to get your drains professionally cleaned.
When you flush your toilet, you expect to see the water in the bowl go down and fresh water come back up. What happens when you have a clogged drain is that the toilet cannot flush down the water from the bowl. But it will still push water back up, which causes the water to overflow.
If you find yourself frequently dealing with dirty water that comes out of the bowl and spreads across your bathroom floor, you need your pipes cleaned. Any type of obstruction in the pipe will keep the water from going down and reaching the sewer.
While any bad smell can be a sign of a clogged drain, bad smells coming from your kitchen sink are a clear sign that you need main sewer line cleaning. Any debris that goes down the kitchen drain should move through the pipes before the sewer carries that debris away. When food waste and other debris builds up inside the pipes, they can rot over time. The odor coming from the drain will worsen until you remove that clog.
