Signs It's Time to Make a Drain Cleaning Appointment
Clogged or otherwise improperly functioning drains are a major source of frustration, and dealing with them can be a hassle. Like anything that sees constant use, drain systems require regular maintenance and it’s important to know the warning signs of a failing system so that you can have it repaired before a major problem occurs. While a clogged drain is easy to spot, there are other signs that your drainage system is in need of maintenance.
Some common signs it's time to schedule a drain cleaning appointment include:
- Slower than usual draining
- Bubbling or gurgling during draining
- An unpleasant odor coming from your drain
- Visible leaks
- Water stains or peeling paint around plumbing areas
- Water backing up into your house
- Water backing up outside of your home
Why You Should Avoid Using Liquid Drain Cleaners
Prior to calling a plumber, many people insist on using a liquid drain cleaner. While they’re advertised as safe for plumbing, the truth is that in many cases these corrosive liquids can eat away at your pipes and make the problem a lot worse.
Keep this information in mind:
- Avoid using liquid drain cleaners in toilets. Liquid drain cleaners are designed to heat up so that whatever is clogging the toilet will be dissolved. However, when the toilet is clogged and it isn’t able to be flushed, the chemicals stay at the bottom of the toilet bowl. This can cause the porcelain to crack, making the plumbing work you needed in the first place much more expensive.
- Drain cleaners are not eco-friendly. Now more than ever, families are very health- and eco-conscious and are increasingly using organic products. Since liquid drain cleaners contain dangerous chemicals, it’s best to avoid these products altogether. For those with children running around the household, do not keep drain cleaners in the house as they pose a major poison threat.
- There is no guarantee that liquid drain cleaners will solve your problem. When a homeowner calls a professional plumber for a clogged drain, there is a guarantee that the drain will be fixed. On the other hand, even name brand cleaners with a hefty price tag could end up compounding the problem or may only provide a band-aid solution that won't last long.

How Often Should You Get Your Drains Cleaned?
Considering all the things that go down your drain, it’s recommended you get your drains cleaned at least once a year. You should also have a professional plumber look over the drains every year to check for any clogs or weaknesses. While it might be tedious to add another item on your to-do list, regular Boston drain cleaning will prevent costly problems in the future.
