A clogged drain is no fun. If you are like most homeowners, you want to fix a clogged drain as soon as possible so that the problem does not get worse.

warning sign that you have a clogged drain

The first and the most obvious sign that you have a clogged drain is that the water in your sink, tub or shower drains very slowly (and sometimes even not at all). This could be caused from a variety of items, including hair, food, soap scum and more.

Second, if you notice there is a terrible smell coming from your drain, it may be caused by a clogged drain. This sign is a bit more difficult to detect than a slowly draining sink, shower or bathtub, but it often comes before the drain is fully clogged, which could help you fix the problem sooner.

Lastly, if your drain makes a gurgling sound, this could be a warning sign that you have a clogged drain. Act fast to fix the problem before the clogs cause expensive damage to your plumbing system.

A few techniques to fix a clogged drain include plunging, snaking a drain, a chemical drain repair, or an evacuation drain repair. If you find you have a serious clogged drain, or any other plumbing problem in need of professional plumbing services, give us a call at Minyard Plumbing, Inc. today!
