Signs You Need Drain Cleaning 

Spotting a clogged drain can be straightforward if you know what signs to look for. One of the most common indicators is water backing up from sink drains and other appliances, especially if it happens at odd times. For example, if water starts backing up in your shower when you flush, it could mean that your main drain is clogged. If water isn't draining or is draining slower than usual, this could also be a sign of a clog. 

Similarly, water pooling around shower drains is another tell-tale sign. You might also observe bubbles in the toilet when running your sink or gurgling sounds from drains even when they’re not in use. Unpleasant odors emanating from your drains can also signal that something is stuck, causing the water to back up.

Another less obvious sign is recurrent clogs. If you have to clear your drains or use over-the-counter drain-cleaning solutions regularly, you might have a more serious blockage on your hands. Multiple clogged drains in your home may point to a bigger problem. 

Common Causes of Drain Blockages 

A variety of everyday substances and materials can cause your drains to clog. These blockages often occur when items that shouldn't be disposed of via the sink or toilet end up in your plumbing system.

Some common substances that can clog your drains include:

  • Food waste: Leftover food particles, especially greasy or starchy ones, stick to the insides of pipes and solidify, causing blockages.
  • Coffee grounds: Despite their small size, coffee grounds tend to clump together when wet, forming a dense mass that can easily clog pipes.
  • Hair: Hair, both human and pet, can bind with other substances like grease to form clumps, leading to a blocked drain.
  • Soap scum: The fat content in soap combines with minerals in water to form a hard residue known as soap scum, which can clog pipes.
  • Paper products: While toilet paper is designed to break down in water, other paper products like paper towels, wet wipes, and feminine hygiene products are not and can quickly block drains.
  • Tree roots: In search of water, tree roots can infiltrate sewer lines, causing significant blockages and damage over time.

Remember, the best way to prevent these substances from clogging your drains is to dispose of them correctly and to have regular drain cleanings from a professional like Payless Plumbing.
