5 Telltale Signs You Need Drain Cleaning

Slow Draining Sinks and Showers

Is your sink slow to drain lately? Does your toilet have a sluggish flush? If you are constantly using harmful chemical drain cleaners with no improvement, that is a sign to call a professional plumber. If you’re noticing slow drainage each time you run the faucet, take a shower, or flush it might be a sign of a larger drain issue.

Water Backup

If your bathtub or sink fills with water each time you use them, it is a sign of a clogged drain. If you have drains in other parts of your home, or you are not observant, these backups can lead to water damage.

Foul Odor

Do your drains smell unpleasant? If so, there may be something in there causing an issue. This can be a clog of old grease that is rotting away, or perhaps a small animal stuck in the pipe. If you can smell any type of sewage, then the problem may be beyond a simple clog. No matter the reason, foul smells coming from your drain is a sign to call a professional.

Toilet Overflows

Toilets clog and overflow on occasion. But if you find yourself constantly cleaning up an overflowing toilet, there is an underlying issue. If you notice especially that two toilets are clogging at once, this is a sign to call a professional for drain cleaning. Toilets have a direct line to the sewer, so if they are clogging together it means a bigger problem.

Sewage Backup

In the most advanced cases of blocked drains, it can lead to sewage backup. This can present itself as puddling on your lawn as the sewage escapes the drains and leaks into the ground. This process is extremely unsanitary and a blaring warning sign to call a plumber.


If you find yourself dealing with any of the issues mentioned above, call a professional plumber from Streamline Services. If you are experiencing two or more of these at once, it’s better to call sooner rather than later. A small plumbing problem can easily escalate into a bigger sanitation issue.
