5 Signs You Need Drain Cleaning


Your drain system is the unsung hero of your home plumbing. It lets your family shower, clean dishes, and get fresh drinking water right from the tap all while the water drains away easily through your pipes. But what happens when your drain system isn’t performing at its best? You may need to call the professionals at Cranney Home Services to schedule a drain cleaning and get your system back to its top performance. There are 5 telltale signs that you’re in need of a drain cleaning this spring.

Slow Draining Sinks and Showers

Is your sink slow to drain lately? Does your shower or tub seem to drain forever? If you’re noticing these symptoms each time you run the faucet or take a shower it might be a sign of a larger drain issue. Over the counter drain cleaners can only do so much- while a visit from Cranney Home Services will ensure your drains are cleared the first time. 

Water Backup

If your bathtub or sink fills with water each time you turn on a tap, it’s a sign of a clogged drain. These types of backups can lead to water damage if you have drains in other parts of your home where someone may not see the water. 

Foul Odor

Do your drains have an odd smell? If so, there may be something in there causing an issue. This can be a clog of old grease that is rotting away or other debris caught in your system. If you can smell any type of sewage, then the problem may be bigger than a normal clog. No matter the issue, odd smells from your drains are a reason to call a professional.

Toilet Overflows

Toilets clog and overflow on occasion- it happens to all homeowners. But if you’re constantly cleaning up after an overflowing toilet, there’s a bigger issue at hand. Especially if you have two toilets clogging at once, it’s best to call a licensed plumber to inspect the issue. 

Sewage Backup

In the most serious cases, a blocked drain can lead to sewage backup. This may appear as puddling on your lawn as the sewage escapes the pipes and leaks into the ground. This process is extremely unsanitary and a blaring warning sign to call a plumber.
