It happens to the best of us… you’re at home, enjoying the comforts of the day, when suddenly you hear gurgling coming from the kitchen sink drain, and there’s an inch of dirty water that won’t go down. It stinks – literally, and the problem makes you sign and roll your eyes with annoyance and dread. No worries, though! At MC Pipemasters, LLC, we are well-versed and well-equipped to handle drainage, drain cleaning, and drainage plumbing in King County.
Clogged drains are common in homes because most homeowners are dismissive or oblivious to what they pour down their drains. You have no idea how few people know you shouldn’t pour food grease down the kitchen drains. Unfortunately, incidents like that are often avoidable but frequent. MC Pipemasters, LLC is familiar with cleaning and unclogging home drains.
Several negative indicators could lead to the discovery of clogged drains in your home. Some signs of early detection include:
- Gurgling or clanking sounds are coming from the clogged drains.
- Standing water in sinks or tubs.
- Overflowing toilets only get worse if you try to flush.
- Slow drainage in other drains (this is a bigger problem with double sinks that share the same drainage pipes).
- There are odd, musty smells coming from the drains, usually accompanied by gurgling noises and slow drainage.
How Long Does It Take to Unclog Home Drains?
The time it takes to unclog home drains depends on the severity and the reason for the clogged drains. In most cases, the clogged drain is a quick and easy fix that takes less than an hour to clear. In other cases, the clog is severe and could be caused further down the pipe. It’s not unheard of for clogged drains caused by tree roots on the exterior of a home’s plumbing system.
