How Do I Know If I Have a Blocked Drain? What Are The Main Signs?
Drain blockages lead to a lot of issues in homes in Toogoolawah. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell what has even caused a blockage. The most obvious sign of a drain blockage is an unpleasant smell. If leftover food, grease, fat, or something else has been caught in the drain, it can start to rot and create a foul smell through your home. Another common sign that we see indicating a drain blockage is a gurgling or bubbling sound. You may notice it anytime during the day, or it may occur only when you flush the toilet or while you are having a shower.
You should also keep an eye out for sinks or bathtubs that drain slower than usual, unexplained damp patches, cracks near or around your drains, and changes in the water level of your toilet. For example, blocked drains may result in rising water levels when flushing a toilet. This is a clear sign of a blocked toilet, which can easily lead to water damage and flooding. Some other signs of drain blockages include weak tap water pressure, slowly flowing water, burst pipework, and water draining from the washing machine. If left unattended to, these problems can intensify and cause water drainage problems. You could return home from work and find everything covered in water, causing major damage to furniture, the interior of your home or foundations.
