A Clogged drain is a common occurrence during the holiday season. All that holiday prep can be hard on your pipes, especially if you let too many scraps escape down the drain while preparing your feast.

Whether you’ve been hard on your drains lately or simply want to make sure they’re prepped and ready for the rest of the winter season, a professional inspection can help you.

Resolve the problem before it gets worse

When it comes to plumbing, it’s safe to say that problems never resolve themselves. Instead, they get worse with time. Eventually, minor issues become big problems. Preventative drain clearing can help ensure that your pipes remain in working order.

Avoiding major disasters

Minor plumbing problems in the home can sometimes indicate a major issue with the your main sewer line.

Symptoms of a sewer line problem can include:

  • Water backing up out of the toilet

  • Water building up around the floor drain in the basement

  • A gurgling sound coming from the drains

If you notice any of these signs, it’s wise to schedule a professional inspection. Your plumber will be able to determine whether the issue is in the drain itself or farther down the sewer line. If there is a problem with the line, taking care of it today will save you a lot of money in the long run.
