Signs You Need A Drain Cleaning 

You don't often think of your drains on a day-to-day basis. But, when a toilet overflows and your bathroom starts to flood, you'll have wished that you had been looking for the warning signs. Using over-the-counter drain cleaners can do more harm than good for your drains. If you notice that your drain is very slowly draining, it may be time to contact our expert drain cleaning team in Indianapolis. We have provided you with three signs to look out for when it comes to knowing when to clean your drains.

  • Slow Drain - While it could be a myriad of different things that are causing the drain to flow a lot slower, common culprits would be hair, grease, or even soap scum. Don't think your drain will get better by leaving it alone; contact our experts today.
  • Strange Smells - If you notice mysterious smells coming from your plumbing fixtures in your home, this is a pretty good sign that it's time to get your drains cleaned. Those smells could be anything from waste sitting in the drains or even sewer gases. This should be dealt with as soon as possible.
  • Gurgling Noises - Strange noises don't always mean something is wrong. But, if you notice a gurgling noise coming from your drain or toilet, it's time to take action and call us today to inspect the odd sounds.

Tips to Prevent Drain Cleaning

Weekly flushing of drains with hot water can help remove small amounts of soap and body oils that can grow into annoying drain clogs. Use chemical drain cleaners sparingly to prevent deterioration of pipes - a simple mixture of baking soda and water can help remove the normal buildup of grease and soap scum from bathroom and kitchen drains.

To prevent more tough clogs, follow these simple recommendations from our plumbing experts. In over 100 years of service, we’ve learned something about what causes clogs!

  • Be mindful of what goes into your drains, and consider using a screen or drain-grate over the drain opening to prevent items from falling in. Food or small objects that go down your drains can become lodged in the pipe and trap grease and debris, controlling normal water flow.
  • Avoid spilling coffee grounds, pasta, rice, celery, or other starchy or fibrous foods down your garbage disposal.
  • Pour your used cooking grease into an empty coffee can or other containers, then freeze the container and throw it away instead of dumping it down the drain. This can prevent grease buildup in drain systems, leading to significant clogs.
  • Place screens over bathroom sink drain and tub drain to catch excess hair and soap film.
  • Provide containers near the toilet to prevent disposing of sanitary products in the toilet drain system. Flushing these products can cause them to get caught within your pipes and cause hard-to-clear clogs.
  • Consider a lint trap for your washing machine's drain line. All of the dirt from your clothes has to go somewhere, and our Northern Indianapolis drain cleaning experts always find it clogging your water line.
  • If you have a kitchen sink without garbage disposal, make sure you put a drain stopper there to ensure you don't get anything too big in your pipes.
  • Throw some ice in your garbage disposal to clean out debris and foul odors.
  • Start a compost bin. Not only will you save your garbage disposal, but you'll reduce waste and be able to use the recycled matter in your garden!
