Signs that You Need Your Pipes Cleaned
There are clear signs that you might need your pipes cleaned, but most people don’t realize what they are until it’s too late. One hard to ignore sign that your drains need to be cleaned is a foul smell coming from the pipes. A toxic layer forms within your pipes which can begin to smell over time and make its way up and into your home. Some do-it-yourselfers may try to mask the smell with baking soda and freshners, but that will only add to the problem over time by depositing more chemicals and buildup onto the already existing layers.
Another sign of dirty pipes is recurring blockages. When layers form inside the pipes, it creates a smaller area for matter and water to pass through. The layers increase and items get stuck, causing blockages often and clogging in your drains. Chemical products such as Draino are sometimes used a temporary fix, but won’t fully eliminate the build up that is within. These chemicals are also potentially dangerous to your pipes. They can eat away at the blockages, but then attack the pipes as well causing premature decay and rusting.
Other signs of drain trouble to watch for are gurgling sounds and slow draining water. These will tell you that water is struggling to pass through freely and easily and could eventually lead you to bigger issues such as bathtubs filling with water that won’t drain, toilets that won’t flush, and sinks that backup or overflow.
