How to Tell Your Ottawa Home’s Drains Need Cleaning
Your home is your sanctuary and you want to ensure that everything is working correctly at all times. There are times, however, when things can go wrong and you may be left trying to come up with some type of fix for something going wrong. One potential problem that people may encounter is the problem of a clogged drain. Here are some things you should look for to determine whether or not the drain in your Ottawa home needs to be cleaned.
Water Not Draining
If you have used a sink or you’ve taken a shower and the water won’t seem to drain properly, is draining slowly, or won’t drain at all, it could signify a clog. There is most likely something in the drain preventing the water from properly going down the drain and backing it up into the sink or tub. Some people opt to use chemical cleaners to remove the clog, but this may cause more harm than good.
If water is backed up, when some finally does go down the drain, it can release air or sewer gases in a bubble through the standing water. This can cause a strange gurgling sound coming from the pipes. If you’ve noticed hearing this type of sound more often, you should definitely consider reaching out to a plumber to determine if it’s a clog.
Many times, when there is some type of clog requiring a drain cleaning, there could be a backup of sewer gases. You may notice this smell coming from the drain itself because the clog can cause the sewer gases to enter the home. Not only is this an unpleasant smell, but it can also be dangerous to anybody in the home.
