When to Invest in Drain Cleaning

Est. Read Time: 3 Mins

Your plumbing system is the most important system in your home. It’s important to make sure this system is in great shape. We understand that this is hard to do when your plumbing system is largely out of sight and out of mind. Even if you have an idea of what might be going wrong in your pipes, it’s hard to actually get in there and confirm your suspicions without professional expertise. This is why we’re here. We’re experts when it comes to drain cleaning in Missouri City, TX.

Today, we want to take some time to go over the signs. There are very clear signs that you might need drain cleaning in your home. Here are the ones you should look out for.

Foul Odors

We’re not trying to imply that your home’s drains should smell like a fresh bouquet of flowers—but your plumbing system shouldn’t make your home smell foul either. If you notice foul odors plaguing your home, then it’s definitely time to clean your drains. Foul odors are an issue that could point to a significant amount of buildup in your pipes. Regular drain cleanings are an easy way to rid your home of this issue.

Standing Water

Do you run into the problem of standing water in your drains? This is an issue that you shouldn’t ignore or try to work around with the assistance of something like a chemical drain cleaner. Professional drain cleaning will clear any blockages that are slowing down your drains and causing standing water.

Slow Moving Drains

Does it take forever and a day for your sink to fully drain? This is a sign that there’s backup somewhere within your home’s plumbing system. Luckily, our professionals specialize in this type of plumbing work. Clean drains will likely move much faster than a drain filled with debris. 

Gurgling Noises

Does your sink gurgle as it drains? This is never a good sign. Drain gurgling is a warning that there’s a blockage somewhere in your system and it’s impeding the flow of your water. This will likely develop into a clog without proper treatment. 


Everyone is going to run into a clog every now and then. But if your clogs are constant and seem to happen constantly, then it’s time to invest in drain cleaning. You probably have a clog somewhere in your pipe that has never truly gone away and keeps getting worse with time. Drain cleaning from a professional can get rid of this problem for good. 

Issues With Fruit Flies

Homeowners are often surprised to hear this sign of trouble indicates a plumbing issue, but it’s true. If you’ve gotten rid of those old bananas sitting on your countertop and cleaned your kitchen thoroughly and there’s still an issue with fruit flies, then you might be having trouble cleaning your home’s drains. Fruit flies can linger around your sink because of food scraps in your pipes. Make sure that you clean your drains thoroughly to clean rid your home of this issue.
